LeBron James

Better Than 88% Of Rappers

... Says The Game

0401_lebron_the_game_tmz_gettyLeBron James is "better than 88% of rappers rapping right now" ... so says The Game who tells TMZ Sports the NBA star's first real rap verse wasn't bad for a beginner. 

"First time I heard the song -- I thought the first guy [Sian Cotton] was fly. He was snapping a little bit and then LeBron came on and I was like, 'Umm s*** ... aight.'"

TMZ Sports first posted the song, a remix of Jay Z's "f***withmeyouknowIgotit" -- which LeBron and Cotton recorded in Florida last summer. 

"The thing is ... he ain't as polished as expected -- but no one is like the God MC on their first rap. I’ve heard a lot worse from CDs and on iTunes and s*** from real artists."

We asked Game if he had any advice for 'Bron, to which he replied -- "Here, tell him this for me ... tell him to work on staying on pocket a little more."

Um yeah...that was not that great, at all. All I heard was him "rap" a line or two and then say "uh", repeated by another line that was followed by another "uh"...this is how he rapped the whole damn thing. It's sad that this is even considered decent.
