The city of Cleveland has NO love for Lebron James or his rap references. Cleveland’s KISS FM affiliate has decided to edit out Jay-Z’s reference to the city’s former king, Lebron James on the smash single “Empire State Of Mind” in which Hov boasts, ““[If] Jeezy’s paying LeBron, I’m paying Dwyane Wade” (meaning Mr. Carter is getting his narcotics cheaper than Mr. Jizzle).

The on-air personality whose real name is Joel Murphy but goes by Java on air, told WaitingForNextYear.com, ““I was playing the song and realized that the word “LeBron” is as offensive to some people as the ‘Seven Words You Can’t Say On The Radio,’” said Murphy. “Anytime one of those words shows up in a song, we either bleep it, cut it out completely or obscure it by flipping it backwards. So, I suggested to our programming dept that we should treat the name “LeBron” similarly.”

That is a lot of hating on someone that help bring people to a city that was unknown really before.
