Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Washington Wizard forward DeShawn Stevenson is finding that out the hard way. In what seems like a feud that was on it's way toward being a nonstory, Stevenson's war of words with LeBron James just went to an unexpected level. Over the weekend, Jay-Z recorded a (rather funny) diss track about Stevenson and suggesting that it's all because LeBron is dating his ex-girl.

It's a rare moment for Jay to jump into a battle between two other people and this article delves into the back story on this a bit more.

But here's a link for the track. It's not that big a deal, but it is random and the Oakland, hyphy, Too Short, "Blow the Whistle" vibe to it is enjoyable regardless of the lyrics.

Some people vacation during their honeymoon's. Jay-Z writes diss tracks. Go figure.
