“Even if you in a Benz, you still a n-gga in a coup.”

Kanye West was on to something in his 2004 hit All Falls Down and no one felt that more this week than LeBron James.

The Los Angeles Police Department responded to a call that someone had spray-painted a racial slur on a gate leading to James’ property in his Brentwood neighborhood on Wednesday.

TMZ reports that the four-time MVP was not home during the incident and the slur was covered up by the time the authorities arrived.

“No matter how much money you have, no matter how famous you are, no matter how many people admire you, being black in America is tough, and we got a long way to go,” James said.

Ain’t that the truth.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors face off tonight in Oakland in game one of the NBA Finals at 9/8C.
