Kanye West Denies He Took Shot at LeBron James on Nike Diss Track 'Facts'

Drew CorriganFeatured ColumnistJanuary 2, 2017

Kanye West shocked a lot of people when he dropped his Nike diss song, "Facts," on New Year's Eve. He name-dropped quite a few athletes, including Odell Beckham Jr., Nick Young and LeBron James.

However, Yeezy caught some flak for the reference to James: "Nike, Nike treat employees just like slaves; Gave LeBron a billi' not to run away. Yo!"

West is referring to the lifetime contract LeBron signed with Nike in December. Some took Kanye's words as a jab at King James, so much so that he felt the need to address the issue on Twitter:

Even with a sneaker war going on between Nike and Adidas, Kanye made sure it's clear to everyone that things between him and the King are cool.
