"They say numbers don't matter but when they discussin' the kings, they turn around and say Lebron ain't got six rings." In that line from the song "No Frauds," Nicki Minaj references how LeBron James can't be mentioned as one of the greatest to ever play the game when his three NBA titles don't stack up to someone like Michael Jordan, who has six championship rings to his name.
On the latest episode of his Dray Day podcast, Draymond Green chimes in on the beef between Nicki and Remy Ma, but what really seems to grind the Golden State Warriors star forward's gears is how Nicki is constantly bringing up LeBron in her raps. "Is Nicki Minaj gonna mention 'Bron in every song?" Green asks. "Every song she's released since June 2016, there's something about LeBron in it. I mean, damn, like, LeBron is great, but Jesus Christ, at some point it just becomes...too repetitive. Jesus Christ, you can’t mention 'Bron in every song you do."
A quick Google search will prove that Draymond may be on to something.
- On "Don't Hurt Me," Nicki raps, "Even if you was Curry, bitch, there's still a LeBron But let's face it, I'm Curry, with rings like LeBron, added my rings up, that's Mike Jordan."
- On "Do You Mind," she mentions James's block on Andre Iguodala in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals: "Every baller tryna score, check them shot clocks, but I hit 'em with them 'Bron-Iguodala blocks."
Starting at the 18-minute mark below, Dray jumps right into the fray declaring himself #TeamRemy by admonishing Nicki for some of her more questionable moves with her response track “No Frauds” last week. He called her stance that “real bosses took three months to respond” was a “copout.” He continued by saying “Some would say (Nicki) only put Wayne and Drake’s verse on there because you couldn’t handle your own. You needed them to draw more attention because you knew your comeback wasn’t strong enough for what ‘ShETHER‘ was.”
He went on to echo the sentiments of many of the critics of Nicki’s moves, saying “I can’t view it as a diss song, I can only view it as you threw some shots in a song.”
As Draymond continued with his criticisms and critiques of Nicki, he stopped suddenly to pick one specific bone unrelated to the Remy Ma beef, and it centered around none other than LeBron James. “By the way, is Nicki Minaj gon’ mention Bron in every song,” he wondered aloud. “Like, every song she has released since June 2016, there’s something about LeBron in it. I mean dang, like yeah, LeBron is great but Jesus Christ. At some point it just becomes too repetitive. Jesus Christ, you can’t mention Bron in every song you do.”
After the previous podcast beef with the Cavs — again both Draymond’s podcast and Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye’s podcast are under the LeBron-owned Uninterrupted umbrella — and the latest mention of LeBron the Warriors-Cavs beef is heating up just in time for the playoffs to start next month. Can it be June already?
