“You can’t have m—-ckers around you who can’t keep it honest with you…”
On Tuesday, James shared a clip of him and Drizzy having a conversation about “gracefully” exiting the scene and who to have in your camp.
Drake started off by saying: “I think maybe one of my biggest concerns in my career is just to figure out how to exit gracefully,” Drake says in the secluded barbershop. “I’ve watched people overstay their welcome, and I just don’t ever want to be that guy that’s addicted to the feeling of victory…Addicted to the emotion of people digesting something that they love, and get to the point I’m just feeding them something and they’re just like ‘Yeah…'”

To address Drake’s question, LeBron and longtime friend and agent Maverick Carter addressed the emphasis of having people on your team who will keep it 100 with you.
“You can’t have motherfuckers around you who can’t keep it honest with you and keep it real with you,” James said. “You need to have someone tell you ‘Yo, either accept the lesser role, or you gotta tank.”
