Draymond Green Blasts Nicki Minaj for Constantly Referencing LeBron James in Her Songs

2 Min Read

When it comes to Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, it appears that Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James is never far from his thoughts, given the rivalry between the Warriors and Cavs. Now, Green is apparently exasperated at being reminded of James constantly by noting that rapper Nicki Minaj has spent too much time referencing James in a number of her songs.

Green used the forum of his podcast, “Dray Day,” to complain about how James has been a frequent frame of reference for Minaj’s raps since the Cavaliers won the NBA title last June.

“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.”

Complex.com pointed out some other examples of Minaj referencing James:

  • 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.”
  • 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.”

Green’s podcast is part of James’ multimedia platform, UNINTERRUPTED, and Green used that same forum six weeks ago to take the side of James in his heated dispute with Hall of Famer Charles Barkley.
