Lebron James, Draymond Green & 2 Chainz Have Black Barbershop Conversation

This is legendary on so many levels.

Lebron James, Draymond Green, 2 Chainz, Jesse Williams, Steve Stout and a few other special guests chopped it up during NBA All-Star weekend in New Orleans at a local barbershop for one of the blackest moments of 2017.

The conversation had a lot of jewels but the main talking points were the Warriors throwing away a 3-1 lead, some NBA players not knowing their roles & the rules of the game, rappers not knowing how to rap and record deals.

"Not only do rappers not no music, i can tell you one step further. Very very few artist no the business... maybe, ten," said Steve Stout. "They don't know anything, they can't follow the money... They don't know how to get paid, all they want to do is get a record deal and it's the beginning and the end of their career."

2 Chainz who is well in the rap business chimed in with a contradictory opinion on how a record deal is the dream of every artist who just wants to follow in the footsteps of their idols.

"But that's the dream though," he said. "The dream is to get signed... like, i try to preach that, you know, signing yourself to somebody basically, you're setting yourself for enslavement or whatever it is, so i try to preach independence, but coming up when you see Fifty get a deal, you see Hov, you see whoever get that deal, Cash mo.. whatever it's like... that sets yourself apart from everybody else doing the same thing in your community. And the big thing that we all strive for as black men is one million dollars.

2 Chainz also talked about the financial part of his deal with Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace label and why he signed to it at the time.

On why he returned to Cleveland after winning two NBA championship rings with Miami, Lebron  James claims he did it for the people. "It was more of a bigger picture... all these kids... all these people, that need inspiration they need a way to get out and i believe i'm that way out."

"I had to be like let's not worry about small sh#t," he added. "Let's worry about us trying to build something that's bigger than our name."

A barbershop convo won't be complete without a debate on who the GOAT is -  They ended the discussion with football and Tom Brady.

 If this didn't move you as an athlete or whoever then you need extra help.

The clip hosted by Beats By Dre is part of ESPN's new segment 'The shop.' Expect more episodes to roll out in the coming weeks.
