While for many it looked like the future of NBA Basketball was up in the air due to Covid-19, although that wasn’t enough to stop the league from bringing basketball to our living rooms again. On Tuesday (September 15), the Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Denver Nuggets in the NBA’s Western Conference Finals, and now as the Los Angeles Lakers gear up to face off against the Nuggets, R-Mean decided to drop his previously recorded track “King James” featuring Jeremih to celebrate the match-up.
“We started working on this record late last year. I wanted to create an anthem about having a winning type of attitude called ‘King James,’ R-Mean says. “When we got it done we figured we would release it around All-Star weekend, but then Kobe passed away and it didn’t feel right to drop this. So we figured we’ll release during playoffs, but then Covid canceled the entire NBA season! But now that the NBA is back and the Lakers are looking great in the post-season, I felt like it actually worked out even better.”
