Breaking New Artists
Imagine my delight this morning when Billups blessed the collective Freedarko inbox with this here gem, a 14-second intro from the DJ Whoo Kid G-Unit Radio#24 joint, hosted by Young Buck and LeBron James. For those without downloading capabilities, I will transcribe:
LeBron James: Ayo for all you haters out there, why don't you check out this new Young Buck. He takin over the game so watch out. He got something coming...FOR YOUR MOTHERFUCKING MOUTHS
Although this recording sounds like Bron was literally shoved into a booth and spent about 53 seconds de-phlegming his throat to deepen his voice, this is further indication that LeBron's PR Game is slipping. Or, as Billups was quick to formulate the tagline:
DJ Whoo Kid- Jeopardizing endorsement deals since the '03 All-Star Game.
Maybe Bron's just trying to keep cred pace with his Team USA mates. The unity is serious. Melo already got to get his Karlton Hines on in the Stop Snitching video. Even D-Wade is doing Converse commercials with Rick Ross-as-Raffi singalong jingles.
Ok...I'll stop now. If this wasn't 'Face of The League' this bit would barely even be blogworthy. (On the other hand, if this was Melo it would be front page news and Big Easy would have even less of a chance of getting the all-star game).
Perhaps the compromise here is that Lebron's lack of self-awareness is oddly refreshing.
