Sounds Like Another Rick Ross…
NBA superstar Lebron “King” James is using some of his hip-hop knowledge in aiding the budding rap career of one of his closest childhood friends.
Sian Cotton, a former teammate of James’ at St. Vincent-St. Mary High in Akron, Ohio, has left basketball behind to focus on music. Cotton went on the play football for Ohio State then later graduating from Walsh University.
TMZ interviewed Cotton, who praises his high school bud for giving him the biggest break in music thus far. Sian Cotton has been close with ‘Bron since they were kids.
In fact, Sian says they’ve been having rap sessions together since they were 9. Sian says LeBron hasn’t just been supportive of his aspiring rap career — but when LBJ learned he’d be on the cover of 2K14, he did everything he could to help get Sian’s track “Almost Home” on the game. “I’d been submitting my stuff to 2K, and then I found out LeBron was gonna be on the cover,” Sian said.
Cotton said he was going to call in a favor to his friend once he found the Miami Heat All-Star would be gracing the cover of the NBA 2K14 video game. Much to his surprise, James already knew Cotton was attempting to get on and got the MC a slot on the NBA2K14 soundtrack with his song, “Almost Home.”
The new artist sounds exactly like Rick Ross however. Listening to his music is almost a duplicate of the MMG star. All you’re waiting for is a “grunt” or two! Listen to the video below and tell us what you think.
