He is a former basketball star who led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA championships and won the Most Valuable Player award five times. He is often considered the greatest basketball player in the history of the NBA (National Basketball Association).

Why don't you dodge this battle like you did Vietnam?
'Cause you've got as much chance of beating me as LeBron!
I'm a flying machine, like the world has never seen!
You can fight one man? I can drive through a whole team!
I choke a dope with his own jump rope!
You'll get smoked when I flow, you Kentucky fried joke!
Used to float like a butterfly, sting like a bee,
Now you double dribble balls that nobody can see!
Man, you make me sick, but I'm better with the flu!
You should let the Fresh Prince do your rapping for you! (Swish!)
I would pass the mic to Pippen, but I'm not done scoring!
Stay all up in your grill like my name was George Foreman!
So Cassius wants to talk about cashing checks.
I'll school you through your bug spray, off your Broadway play, over the Japanese dude sittin' on your face!
Hit nothing but net! You ain't seen nothing yet!
Man, you needed a movement 'cause you're so full of shit!
I'm a better athlete and a better MC!
Battle me two more times, watch me get a three-peat!
