Hip-Hop Reacts to LeBron James’ $154 Million Deal With Los Angeles Lakers
LeBron James seismically shifted the NBA landscape Sunday night (July 1) by leaving Cleveland and the Eastern Conference to sign a four-year contract with the Los Angeles Lakers, and the internet responded with the expected amount of shock, awe and shade. Rappers helped lead the way, as locals celebrated the blockbuster move and out-of-towners added their frequently hilarious two cents.
LA veterans like Snopp Dogg and The Game embraced LeBron's decision and welcomed the four-time MVP to their city with open arms. Further up the coast, Mozzy announced himself as a new member of Lakers nation. Bulls fan G Herbo was less enthused, taking the opportunity to roast James for how his hairline will look in a Los Angeles jersey.
"His ass don't even look right in yellow, bro," Herb said. "His ass look silly as hell."
Unfortunately neither Jay-Z nor Kanye West, both frequent LeBron name-droppers, have yet to weigh in on social media. You can check out the list below to see more rappers' reactions to LeBron's move.
