LeBron James Raps, Covers Jay-Z and Kanye's "Niggas in Paris"

If you are a ride-or-die 305 fan...

Then you already know that LeBron James isn't just a Miami Heat superstar, two-time NBA Finals MVP, and all-around superhuman athlete.

He's a part-time rapper too.

Late last year, during a 2012-13 regular-season game, King James made his rap debut, spitting the hook to his cousin Trinidad James' MDMA-and-bling banger "All Gold Everything."

"Popped a molly, I'm sweatin'/Wooooo!," 'Bron chanted, ecstatically throwing his arms up. "Popped a molly, I'm sweatin'/Wooooo!"

And now he's back with a partial cover of Jay-Z and Kanye's "Niggas in Paris."

In an audio clip posted to his Instagram account (and captioned "No he didn't! Did he"), @KingJames, backed by that unmistakable Watch the Throne beat, boasts: "Yo, you already know what it is! It's the kid, King James!

"I wanna give a shoutout to the Four Horsemen! Shoutout to Fab Five! Akron 330!"

But then this "Sneak Peak" abruptly ends.

Thankfully, though, on "Sneak Peak 2," 'Bron lets loose his sweet, clumsy flow.

Of course, aside from something about "Daytime at the Hazleton/Chillin', thinkin' of a master plan," King James' awkward rhymes are just a mess of mumble-mouthed gibberish.

But so what? As King James told the haters after scoring his second championship ring: "I can't worry about what everybody say about me."

The baller's even got a tentative title for his first album, #ButImNotARapper.
