LeBron James is now a rapper?

Alexander Tamargo

The MVP and reigning King of the NBA releases mysterious sneak peaks on Instagram...

Does he have to be good at EVERYTHING?

Not content with winning back-to-back titles and NBA MVPs and Finals MVPs, it appears that LeBron James really is taking some time off the court to rest and recuperate after three straight years of reaching the NBA Finals as a member of the Miami Heat.

So naturally he's taking his talents to the recording studio and is apparently laying down some tracks during the offseason. He posted two short audio clips on his Instagram that together make up a "sneak peak" of sorts with a little freestyle over the "Ni**as In Paris" beat by Kanye West and Jay-Z.

Have a listen and let us know what you think. No one is saying he should quit his day job, but do you think he's as good or better than fellow NBA rappers Metta World Peace, Shaquille O'Neal, Chris Webber, Kobe Bryant or even LeBron's part-time summer workout partner Kevin Durant?
