Chuck D & Burt Blackarach In Co-Scoring Of LeBron James' "Shut Up & Dribble" Doc

#DXCLUSIVE: the final episode of The three part series aires on Showtime this Saturday (November 17).

LeBron James is not only the "face of the NBA," he is also a philanthropist and an advocate of education. So when Chuck D came up to the score of the music part of James' new documentary, Shut Up & Dodge, the Public Enemy brain and sports enthusiast, do not hesitate.

"LeBron James is a person who goes outside of himself," Chuck says to HipHopDX. "He is a voice for the voiceless as Craig Hodges who has made major gestures in pushing the sports to move forward in some kind of social debate. James was actually told to 'shut up and dodge' by a journalist of Fox TV [Fox News' Laura Ingraham]. Basically, 'we don't need to know your opinion about society and life and what you think about the administration.'.centered-ad {

});

"It was a no-brainer to be able to be in charge of making the music for this work. Not only am I a fan of LeBron James, but I admire the posture of the one who speaks up for those who do not have much of a voice as he has."
