NBA superstar LeBron James has come forward to shout-out Top Dawg Entertainment’s Kendrick Lamar for dropping his new untitled unmastered album last week.

King James released a video clip addressing his Cleveland Cavaliers run to the playoffs and referenced K. Dot’s new audio gem.

“I got an opportunity to listen to some music last few days and obviously, a good friend of mine, Kendrick, blessed me with that album that just dropped. So I can even lock in, kind of use that for motivation moving forward. So shout-out Kendrick, Top Dawg, you know, everybody there at TDE, making that great music. Appreciate it man, everything is love and it’s going to be a great stretch run for our ball club, for our team and looking forward to seeing all y’all either in the Q[uicken Loans Arena] or on the road. Let’s gear up, stay sharp, and you already know to strive for greatness.” (“Uninterrupted”)
