Flo Rida Creates Miami Heat Anthem

Rapper Rick Ross has already declared himself the next Jack Nicholson, and will look to make a name for himself as the Miami Heat’s biggest fan. Post-arrival of James/Bosh, of course.

Fellow hip-hop artist Flo Rida apparently supports the Heat as well, releasing a song called “We Already Won,” featuring rhymes centered around the Heat’s trio.

If you ask me that’s a bold statement, but judging from his musical moniker I would assume Flo Rida is a big fan of Florida. Somewhere Jay-Z is shaking his head in disgust…or maybe that’s amusement.

Listen to the song and watch Dwyane Wade posterize Anderson Varejao below.

The new big three, aka LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade, have already been at the center of attention in the sports world for the past week, and now tales of their companionship is venturing out into the music industry.

Rapper ‘The Game’ has released a new song called “M.I.A.,” and as of now that is the only known reference to the Miami Heat’s terrific threesome.

The lyrics go “I keep three heats on me, 45, Glock, and the gauge, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and D-Wade. Any n**** try to stunt, get sprayed.”

So yeah, not the deepest or most thoughtful lyrics you’ve ever heard, but nonetheless it’s always interesting to see sports references in music. I’m just waiting for the first “The Decision” reference. Wouldn’t surprise me if it came from the Bloodhound Gang.

Last night during the ESPYs we witnessed actors Steve Carell and Paul Rudd spoof LeBron James’ “The Decision,” where  Carell tells Rudd an important decision of his own.

The two actors are promoting their new movie “Dinner for Schmucks,” and did brilliantly in the skit below.

Last night LeBron James held a one-on-one interview with Jim Gray on ESPN to announce “The Decision,” as the program was aptly titled.

The announcement was held at The Boys and Girls Club in Greenwich, Connecticut, but LeBron still wasn’t the only celebrity present.

Surprisingly enough Kanye didn’t interrupt LeBron during his announcement, although the interview that was conducted could hardly be more dramatic than it already was.

Hip-hop star and part-owner of the New Jersey Nets Jay-Z may be getting his fair share of attention regarding the LeBron James sweepstakes, but don’t think that will keep other rappers from giving their opinion.

Rapper T.I. made an appearance on KIIS FM with DJ Skee, and just so happened to be wearing a Bulls hat. When asked about LeBron and what he should do, he gave an interesting and surprisingly unbiased answer. Watch the video below.

LeBron James can officially sign with a new NBA team if he chooses come July 1, and one of the few teams with a chance at getting him are the New Jersey Nets. Rapper Jay-Z is part-owner of the Nets, and also happens to be good friends with LeBron.

The hip-hop mogul made an appearance on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’ where he talked LeBron and the team’s new Russian billionaire owner, Mikhail Prokhorov, aka “the tall guy”.

The New York Knicks are on the brink of desperation, if they’re not there already, and now apparently want the most prestigious professional sports franchise in the world to help out New York City.

Knicks president Donnie Walsh wants all New Yorkers to pitch in on the ‘LeBron Project’ , but Derek Jeter has four helpful words of advice: “It wouldn’t make sense.”

There has also been much speculation that Jay-Z, hip-hop star and close friend of James, would try and pressure him into signing with the New Jersey Nets, of which he is part-owner. According to the rap mogul however, “That’s his decision.”

James is known as a Yankees fan and is also friends with pitcher CC Sabathia. He has also been seen sporting Dr. Dre’s new headphones, ironically enough donning a Red Sox logo.

I don’t know exactly when this picture was taken, but I’m liking the Mickael Pietrus fro. Hopefully this becomes a NBA trend.

The latest musician to get involved in the LeBron James saga is rapper Drake, who took advantage of The King’s presence at a recent concert in Cleveland.

At the concert Drake calls up LeBron onstage, to which he is greeted by chants of MVP. He even lets LeBron perform with him, in a Lil’ Jon-esque cameo shouting “Hey” while Drake spits his flow.

Nets co-owner Jay-Z won’t be the only musician recruiting LeBron James this offseason. LeBron is known to be an avid hip-hop fan, but that didn’t stop a band member from an entirely different genre from reaching out to the superstar.

My Chemical Romance, a metal/punk-rock band, guitarist and apparently big Knicks fan Frank Iero took to Twitter to make LeBron a special offer: Free MCR tickets for life if King James makes his way to New York next season.

I’m not sure if MCR is willing to go as far as to make a video similar to the “We are LeBron” parody performed by loyal Cavaliers fans, so they better hope that he’s enticed by the thought of being part of the MCRmy.

LeBron and Jay-Z are certainly friendly toward each other, as seen in the video below. I can’t think of a better person to persuade James to the worst team in the NBA besides the rap superstar.

The waiting period until LeBron James can sign with a new team will last until at least July 1, although that hasn’t stopped authoritative figures in high places from courting him.

And I’m not talking the usual suspects, such as Spike Lee or Jay-Z. Two of the most notable political figures in America have already made a pitch to arguably the best basketball player in the world, although not for the same city.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and none other than Mr. President himself, Chicago native Barack Obama, have let LeBron James know that he is welcome in their respective cities. Discreetly, of course.

On his weekly radio show, Mayor Bloomberg said that LeBron would “love living in New York,” while an aide for President Obama said that the President “didn’t want to tamper, but as a Chicago fan he thinks LeBron would look great in a Bulls uniform.”

As of now those two cities are in the best position to lure LeBron from Cleveland. Hopefully the inevitable summer-long saga that will be LeBron’s courtship will provide some entertainement.
