LeBron’s list is a perfect mix of East and West coast rap.
LeBron James has proven himself to be a huge hip-hop head. The NBA superstar is always vibing out to the latest albums by some of the hip-hop world’s biggest stars. For instance, LeBron was recently on Instagram where he could be seen showing a ton of appreciation to Kendrick Lamar’s new album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.
In the past, LeBron has fancied himself as a hip-hop historian. He also got to executive produce a 2 Chainz album, which just goes to show that LeBron has a real appreciation for the artform. With that being said, it should come as no surprise that fans wanted to ask him about the genre during a Q&A on Twitter last night.

“The Chronic, Doggystyle, Black Album, Life After Death and ummm It Was Written. But I have so many more to name for real!” LeBron wrote.
