LeBron James, Kevin Durant Collaborated On Secret Rap Song

The story as reported Monday by Chris Haynes of ESPN.com boils down to this: During the National Basketball Association lockout in 2011, Durant joined James in Akron, Ohio, to work out together as both stars looked to keep their skills sharp and stay in shape.

Spider Studios, a recording studio in Cleveland, Ohio, tweeted out a snippet of the track in which Durant takes a quick jab at FOX Sports' Skip Bayless before James comes in.

"Both players are music junkies, and in between workouts they made a decision to kill some time by writing their own lyrics and heading to the booth".

There are no plans to release the song and the whereabouts of the tape are unknown, though James' personal deejay, DJ Steph Floss, teased that he might know.

At the time, LeBron was a 26-year-old star for the Miami Heat and Durant a 23-year-old budding star for the Thunder. Durant rapped first, followed by James, with Durant coming back to finish it up, according to ESPN.

Bounty hunters didn't tell Greenville PD about their plans
Bodycam video from police captures automatic gunfire and patrons running from a mass shooting at a Florida gay nightclub. Minnesota bounty hunters tracked Hutchinson to Texas and called in Corpus Christi based Fidel Garcia Jr.to track him.

Both players are now focused on the NBA Finals, with no indication that they even plan on offering a comment on the song at any point in the future.

One person who listened to the track told Haynes the lyrics were "surprisingly well-crafted and delivered".

"I heard the track years ago during post-production for Thunderstruck", he said. "It was very good".

"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". Their current shooting guard Iman Shumpert (who you may know from Kanye West's "Fade" video) has released some fairly quality mixtapes. "I suggested submitting it to Warner Brothers for the movie soundtrack, but KD wanted to keep it private".
