HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – James Harden has officially reached superstar status in the rap world. Jay-Z may rap about Lebron James and Dwyane Wade but the Grammy-winning rapper/songwriter Drake is officially Team Harden.
DJ Khaled’s latest single, which premiered this week, pays homage to the city of Houston and NBA All-Star James Harden. The song, titled No New Friends, features hip-hop artists Drake, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross.
In between the abundant cursing and catchy hook, Drake, a.k.a. Drizzy, alludes to Harden’s success with the playoff-bound Rockets in the first verse:
H-town my second home like I’m James Harden.
The song will be featured on DJ Khaled’s upcoming album Suffering From Success.
