James uploaded a video of himself rapping to the song Yeah Glo by GloRilla after working out at Arena. He captioned the video with “GLO!!” and tagged the rapper’s account.

He appeared fired up and prepared to take it to the visiting Pistons, who had previously beaten the Lakers in a heated game that resulted in two ejections.

GloRilla, whose real name is Gloria Hallelujah Woods, rose to fame in 2022 with her hit song F.N.F. (Let’s Go) featuring Hitkidd. The song was nominated for Best Rap Performance at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards and sparked a viral dance challenge on TikTok.

Her latest single, Yeah Glo, was released in November 2023 and has been climbing the charts ever since. The song features GloRilla’s signature crunk and dominant style, as well as a catchy chorus that goes: “Yeah Glo, yeah Glo, yeah Glo, yeah Glo, yeah Glo, yeah Glo, yeah Glo, yeah Glo.”

James has always used music to motivate himself before and after games. He often shares videos of himself jamming to trending songs on the radio or his personal playlist.

However, his musical taste has not always been flawless. TMZ Sports claims that “The King” has become more proficient with song lyrics following years of being made fun of by internet trolls.

Meanwhile, GloRilla is not the only rapper that James has shown appreciation for. He has also been spotted listening to artists like Lil Baby, J. Cole, Travis Scott, and his friend and business partner Drake.
