Ballislife has worked with Sprite, NBA & LeBron for the past few years on the Sprite Showdown Tour and in the finals of the 2010 Showdown that took place in Dallas at All-Star weekend our judges were LeBron James & Drake.  Drake gave an expected performance but LeBron gave us a surprise performance as Drake’s hype man and maybe the first hype man on a stage without a mic.  We all joked that LeBron was the worst hype man we have ever seen, which is obviously not true, but after seeing this video and this obnoxious hype man that belongs to Young Steady, LeBron now looks like Flavor Flav – pre VH1 & when Public Enemy was the best hip hop group in the world.

Since we are on the topic of hype men here’s a few others deserving some credit

  • Jay-Z – Jaz-O
  • 2Pac – Shock G
  • Spliff Star – Busta Rhymes
  • Bushwick Bill – Geto Boys
  • Freaky Tah – Lost Boyz
  • KMG – Above the Law
  • Sen Dog – Cypress Hill
  • Hon mention: 2 Bigg MC – MC Hammer
