LA Lakers superstar LeBron James is still thriving in year 21. Despite being the NBA’s oldest player, the soon-to-be 39-year-old basketballer remains arguably a top 10 player.

According to Lil Wayne, the four-time MVP’s longevity reminds him of his Rap career.

In a recent conversation with Bleacher Report, Weezy shared which player he thought he compared best to in the Rap game and he only had one player in mind, LeBron James.

“I would say that I’m like a LeBron. I dropped my first solo album when I was 14, and that’s the same album I’m talking about that went platinum. And Ive been doing this at this pace of higher ever since, just like him.”

Weezy even alluded to Tom Brady‘s legacy when he was constantly berated by the press about his retirement. Weezy recalled, “You remember Tom Brady, it was every year, even though he was winning the Super Bowl and all that, it still was, ‘Is this the year he’s gonna retire?’”

“We don’t even say that, right, because we don’t want you to retire. So, when people ask me like, ‘When’s the ‘Carter VI’ coming out?’ I’m like, ‘Goddamnit, that’s six of ’em, and they still want it.’”

The 41-year-old rapper has released 13 studio albums, a collaborative album, three compilation albums, five extended plays, and 29 mixtapes thus far. However, if Lil Wayne gives fans what they want, it appears that, like LeBron James, he won’t be retiring anytime soon.
