LeBron James revealed his favorite albums and movies.

LeBron James is preparing for his 20th season in the NBA. He seems to have a lot of gas left in his tank and will be hoping to have another dominant season. Even at the age of 37, the LA Lakers forward is still one of the best players in the league.

While everyone knows how good James is on the floor, some fans might not be familiar with how he is off the court. The four-time champion recently shed some light on his personality, revealing his favorite albums and movies.

James picked "It Was Written" by Nas and "The Black Album" by Jay-Z as his all-time favorite albums.

James is close to both artists, which is why it's not surprising that he picked their albums. The superstar even quoted their lyrics numerous times, showing that he's a big fan and listens to their songs frequently.

In 2021, LeBron James appeared in the music video for "Brunch on Sundays" by Nas.

The 18-time All-Star also has a long history with Jay-Z. The two have known each other for a long time and James has been mentioned a couple of times in Jay-Z's songs.


Back in 2008, Jay-Z sampled Too Short's "Blow the Whistle" and used it to diss DeShawn Stevenson, a player who had beef with James. The diss track was truly epic and it showed how close James and Jay-Z were.

Coming to movies, it turns out that "The Godfather" and "The Godfather Part II" are James' all-time favorites.

Back in 2017, James was spotted reading "The Godfather," a popular crime novel by Mario Puzo. The superstar claimed to have watched the movie adaptation six times.

The amazing cast led by Marlon Brando, Al Pacino and James Caan, did a fantastic job and made "The Godfather" movies very popular. The first movie came out in 1972, with the second one coming out two years later.

Even five decades after its release, "The Godfather" is still one of the most popular movies of all time. It's not surprising that James ranks it so high.
