Is trouble brewing between the fam’? Well, Kanye West definitely ruffled a couple of feathers late last year when he released his controversial track, “Facts.” In his track, he took several swipes at Nike, Jumpman, and even his buddy, LeBron James.

Ye boldly rapped, “Nike, Nike, treat employees just like slaves / gave LeBron a billi’ not to run away.”
Those audacious claims quickly swept the Internet off their feet and left us wondering if he was indeed taking stabs at his friend, LeBron James.

Well, Kanye West debunked all the claims regarding his diss to LeBron earlier today. He went on his Twitter and said the following.

“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.”
While LeBron has admitted to not even hearing the record, he did speak about the track to and took the side of Nike and co-founder Phil Knight.
“We don’t look upon nobody on our side, we just try to put the best athletes that we can out on the floor every night,” LeBron said.
“Phil Knight’s greatest saying is ‘always listen to the heart of the athlete, listen to the words of the athlete’, and that’s all it’s about, nothing else.”
If you recalled, Kanye left Nike and signed with Adidas in 2013. Late last year, his Yeezys were named “Shoe of the Year.”   SHARE this story with your friends.
