Kevin Durant and LeBron James have battled toe-to-toe on the court for years, trying to prove who the better player is. 

But in 2011, they apparently spent some of the NBA lockout recording a rap song together. ESPN’s Chris Haynes reported the two wrote the lyrics and collaborated on a rap song when Durant was on the Oklahoma City Thunder and James the Miami Heat.

The details are pretty fun, too: 

One person who has heard the song says he recalls Durant rapping the first verse, James hopping on for the second and then Durant finishing it off.

The song’s title and theme are unknown, as are its whereabouts. Durant, who produces beats in his spare time, is believed to have provided the instrumentals.

When approached about its existence, James and Durant, to a moderate extent, confirmed that there is such a track before bursting out into laughter without further comment. There are no current plans to release the song to the public.


The world needs to hear this song.
