Yep. Two of the best in the NBA, Lebron James and Kevin Durant, have — for one song — joined the ranks of their peers who have tried their hands at a Rap career. Last week, producer Frank Wahoo liberated the song, titled “It Ain’t Easy,” which is seven years old and could have possibly been included on the NBA 2K19 soundtrack.
He explained the collaboration to Noisey, of which a snippet is below:
I would make beats for MGK and he would go to this studio called Swagger Studios a lot and work with this guy named Ben Schigel. So, that’s the studio LeBron James and Kevin Durant came up to cause it was during the lockout. Originally it was only going to be Kevin Durant that was going to record, cause he did music and stuff, but then LeBron James ended up showing up. So we turned on the Pro Tools setup, and Schigel recorded a couple of songs over 4 or 5 Watch the Throne beats — “N**** In Paris”, “Lift Off,” and “HAM” — and two [original] songs. The one LeBron song [“It Ain’t It”] was the one that I was a part of. Then they left, didn’t hear anything of it. It was kind of cool, just this dude came in, there was no paperwork signed. Just recorded, hung out all night and left.
You can enjoy the track above (while it’s still available). Should these guys quit their day job?
