Drake, Lil Wayne, Kanye West & Eminem. Supposed to be hitting radio/iTunes on Friday. Are you focused? In collaboration with some More Than A Game movie event with Lebron. "Don't worry Lebron, get em next year?" - Weezy on 'Kobe Bryant' Fun fact: 'Swagger Like Us' leaked exactly one year ago this week. And contrary to what YN thinks, we did have the song before it came out, but we decided against posting it. You'll understand why if you listen to the tagged up version below, which actually includes a different T.I. verse that he had originally laid for the track. (Nah Right)
The film shows NBA superstar LeBron James' rise to fame from childhood to his current status in the league.
The movie documents how James and a group of inner-city kids who used to practice on a linoleum floor gym at a Salvation Army managed to put Akron on the basketball map. Director Kris Belman, who spent eight years making the film, delved into the backgrounds of each of the players in the 'fab five' and compiled an extensive collection of never-before-seen footage that includes home movies and locker-room meetings. Slated to hit theaters on October 2, the movie will show at subsequent Nike tour stops in China and Europe before returning to the states to visit New York and Los Angeles. (Clevescene)
