Kanye West says he wasn't ripping LeBron James in his new song

BY Teddy Mitrosilis • January 8, 2016

Kanye West came out with a new song recently called "Facts" in which he takes shots at Nike for some reason and references LeBron James.

Kanye alluded to the lifetime contract LeBron signed with Nike, rapping, "Gave LeBron a billi' not to run away. Yo!"

I'm not sure why Kanye has it out for Nike, who he accuses of controlling employees (except in more volatile words than that), but some took the lyric as a shot at LeBron. Enough heat apparently got back to Kanye that he felt the need to post this to Twitter on Friday:
