Jay-Z Joins LeBron/DeShawn Stevenson Feud

It’s getting personal now. First Deshawn Stevenson of the Washington Wizards called LeBron James “overrated.” Then ‘Bron ‘Bron responded by telling media his responding to Stevenson’s comment would be like “Jay-Z responding to Soulja Boy.” The two went at it during the first three games of their playoff series with James almost single handedly defeating the Wiz in games 1 and 2. Stevenson and company regrouped to take game 3, even inviting Soulja Boy, who was in attendance. But leading up to game 4, James brought in reinforcements. According to the Washington Post, Hov has recorded a track for LeBron aimed at Stevenson and the Wizards. The song premiered at D.C. night spot Love on Friday night; the same location Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas celebrated his 25th birthday last year with a million-dollar bash. James hosted the party and he and teammates had fun at Stevenson’s expense. Stevenson, however, didn’t take too kind to word of the song. “When I had Soulja Boy here, it was on the court. It was nothing disrespecting him or his family or even foul language,” he told the newspaper. “So I’m boycotting Love. Everybody on our team, we’re boycotting Love…. We’re not going no more. But I appreciate Jay-Z for giving me the shout out.”

      Hey man it’s only entertainment! The point is to “MAKE NOISE” right? Well ain’t this getting alot of attention.

    wow…a new low for jay-z, and believe me i’ve beeen around long enought to see all the greasy shit he’s done over the years, especially during the pac/big ara…but this—WTF?!?…all i can say is this—jay should really watch his step–it’s acceptable in the rap game to talk shit about people, thier families, curse thier names etc…but that shit is not ok in the real world–you talk that kind of shit about someone not part of this rap shit and u might find yourself getting dealt with…nba cats got money, and business etc. that are part of the real world-a lot of them have to do a lot of community oriented work and have partnerships with schools/childrens hospitals/make a wish foundation type stuff where this type of language and disrespect is not ok…ball players are funded by a different type of corporate structure, and if jay-z is poking his nose into all that with this rap shit he just might found himself no longer being the corporate darling that his is today….i’m starting to get tired of this nigga and his knitted scarves and him sharing an apartment with a known gay football player (larry johnson) and all of his suspect shit—now he’s rapping against basketball players for lebron?!? i don’t know about this nigga—i just don’t know about this nigga…

  • Neil Watson

    I was actually in vip at Love nightclub the night LeBron got the DJ to play Jay-Z’s diss track “Blow The Whistle”. It is hilarious but definitely has truth to it…They played the track over and over again, and even though I’m from Washington DC, I couldn’t help myself but to party to the song because it’s Hova! LeBron actually gave my friends and I the heads up that the track was about to get some spins by the DJ. Probably excited about our enthusiasm for the tracks punchlines, he bought us numerous drinks and bottles of Ace of Spades which cost a $1,000.00 dollars a piece in the club. I have much more respect for LeBron after that night!

    • Deez Nutz

      Did you let him bend you over and hit it from the back too? You male groupie azz nukka. “…he bouth us numerous drinks and bottles of Ace of Spades…i have much more respect for LeBron” Cause he bought you drinks? You gotta be gay…

  • The Spaniard

    Let me get this straight…

    Jay-z is a bitch because he made a song refering to DeShawn Stevenson? Get the fuck out of here. That idiot brought solja boy to the game to make a statement and LeBron Jay-Z took it up a notch…quit your bitching (and cut that fucking beard off).

    When I heard Stevenson say something about James I thought it was funny for two reasons.

    1. I like when cats have the nuts to say “fuck this nigga, I’m a man too”

    2. Stevenson is a servicable role player going at one of the top 3 players in the game…so retarded that I had to laugh.

    So to sum up…

    Fuck a DeShawn Stevenson…he’s a bum.

    Fuck the Wizards…they’re a collective of (useful) bums who won’t win any championships.

    Oh yeah, fuck LeBron too…he’s not a bum though…just slightly overrated (still a beast though).

    • JP

      Those “bums” are rich as fuck
      jay-z done did this 2 times already
      about nas girl and kids
      and now this
      all of this was just trash talking on the court…nothing personal
      then jay gonna come in and diss him
      remember…stevenson neva said anything bout hov…he brought soulja boy to the game but that wasnt disrespectin james
      but o well
      i gotta hear the song be4 i can say much

      • The Spaniard

        DeShawn Stevenson career stats.

        8.7 ppg 2.4 apg 1.9 rpg

        In light of his yapping to James and coming out of HS early with some hype…he’s a bum. The Wizard’s are NEVER going to come close to winning a championship, so relatively speaking, they’re bums (on the court) also.

        I could give less than a fuck about his money…although that a great consolation prize in lieu of being a elite basketball player in the league.

        I don’t really give a fuck about Jay-Z either, expect for him making music I can listen to…and he has been slipping on that front also.

  • D-Block

    • wtf?

      no one brought jays name into this–lebron did…lebron said that him answering stevenson was like jay z answering soulja boy…so lebron brought up jayz and dissed soulja boy….so the wizards gave soulja boy game tickets…then jay makes a diss song against stevens?!? wtf???!???????

  • Common Sense

    While I read not only this article, I have no choice but to laugh but also to shake my head at the same time. First and fore most I have no favorites, I have no biased. I simply enjoy watching a game of basketball and I enjoy listening to Jay-Z, Soulja Boy, or who ever it is at the moment. Now without being too judgemental please allow me to be the voice of reason here people. Lets start with Deshawn and Lebron. What I see is two young professional black men working hard to provide a living for themselves, a living that most people in the world will never experience. For that I am proud and I applaud them. As far as this beef goes, I don’t believe it was right for Deshawn to call out Lebron but he is entitled to his own opinion, thats the beauty of living in our “so-called” free America. The proper thing for Lebron to do is exactly what he did, don’t respond with words, go out the and settle it on the court. He took a worng turn when he brought in a third party as did Stevenson, I feel if we all can put our emotions aside, you can see where I am going with this. Jay-Z and Soulja boy rap. Thats great, more power to them. Deshawn and Lebron play ball, do your thing fellas. It is nothing more nothing less than that. Just go out the and play hard, the rest will take care of itself. No need for beef, no need for gun talk or whatever this thing might escalate to. Its a game, as much as monopoly is a game. Some are better than others. Get over it. Not the end of the world. As for the people writing comments, hey support you favorite players and all of that but when it comes to insulting another person you don’t know over something as petty as this, common people, we all look silly.
    Common Sense is not so Common.

  • DMV DUDE

    on a basketball note im a huge wizards fan but lets be serious the cavs r having trouble beating an injured wizards team wat makes u think they even have a chance of beating NBAs elite teams and yes lebron is “OVERRATED” he beat an over rated pistons team last year and then got smashed in the finals if u say the wizards aint gonna win a title then bron def. aint gonna win 1 in clevland they wont make it pass the 2nd round gurantee!

  • HERE’S THE SONG!!!!!!

    http://www.xxlmag.com/?p=21119

    ok now we can actually make some informed comments on this…..i’ve listened to it and well–i gotta say its a little wierd—jay isspending the whole song about how “him and lebron are too big to respond” …but wait–he just did respond by making the song–and what exactly is he responding to? lebron is the one who brought up jays name..and lebron talked shit about stevens first–(lebron has admitted that he talked shit about the wizrds and stevensfirst to drew gooden who is stevens’ best friend from when they played together in orlando and told stevens)stevens said that lebron was overated and that he was no kobe–he said that hoe doesn’t loose sleep over having to play lebron but he actually looses sleep about having to play kobe….

    as for the song: i’m not tryin to start any shit—and it might just be me but..well, the saoug sounds a little gay–i mean, jay is in his mid 40′s and talking like a salty 15 yeard about a basketball player who said another male basketball player was overrated…is it just me? or is this really gay?!? honestly, maybe i’m not seeing it right..buit the whole concept and the song seems teh ghey to me–i mean lebron is a grown ass man and jay is 40 somthin years old talking about how lebron will go sleep with stevens girland whatnot…jay acts like hes to high up t respond to people, but he goes to the studio overnight and makes a diss record aganst a non rapper he said his boy ebron was overrrated–sorry everyone but thats kinda homo to me ESPECIALLY since lebron is perfectly capable of making his point ON THE COURT…

    what the hell do you all think about this shyte?????

  • geico lizard

    if that stevenson clothesline had connected lebron would be still asleep right now and and stevenson would be out the league but it didnt connect. i agree with the person that said jay z must be bored but why is jay z bored when he should be on his honeymoon with beyonce? you would think he would lay low so we can at least be fooled that he is tearing that beyonce ass up everynight since they are newlyweds and in their first month and should be honeymoon.

  • ballin!!

    no matter where u stand on this…u gotta admit stevenson is a funny dude:

    “He’s worth $500 million, and he’s writing songs about me,” Stevenson said before tipoff. “What does that say about DeShawn Stevenson? Ballin’!”

    …classic…

    DeShawn Stevenson just turned from a bum into a bitch. Only suckers clip cats from behind. Sucker punches…or “statement” fouls are for fags.

    Stevenson should stop hanging out with bum ass rappers & use some of that large bankroll of his to hire a trainer to work on his lateral movement so LeBron can stop freebasing his ass on the court.

    I enjoy the NBA, but this whole scenario is so childish. The Wizards should just chalk this up as something that seemed like a good idea at the time to go late eighties Pistons on Lebron, but they should have remembered that the league has changed since then. I remember a playoff game where Barkley and this dude from the Bucks (Phil Mokeski, I think) swung and connected on each other during the 3rd quarter of a playoff game. They were separated by the teams, and then they kept playing. I don’t even know if they received technicals. Neither one went to the bench. That doesn’t happen anymore because of how unwatchable the Pistons and Knicks made those games back then. I haven’t watched this series because I like seeing NBA players do things I can’t, and the “aggressive foul” technique employed by the Wizards has made me lose interest.

    Oh, and while I understand the motivation for making this diss record, it was just as lame as the Wizards trash talking. I hope that the Cavs close these guys out ASAP so that we can just move on.
