It’s been over a week since Kanye West dropped his controversial track “Facts” and the song is still managing to make headlines.
While most of you have probably heard it by now, as of a few days ago, LeBron James apparently still had not. James, who recently signed a lifetime contract with Nike, was most likely deflecting the question regarding the song considering it took aim at the Swoosh including a line that directly referenced him: “Nike, Nike treat employees just like slaves. Gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away” which some folks took as a shot at James.
Many perceived the line as a jab at James. But in an early morning tweet, West cleared the air stating: “The media tried to make it seem like I was downplaying LeBron on my song FACTS which I would never do, Lebron is fam bottom line.”
