As promised, Ron Artest releases single

Jun 19, 2010, 6:20 PM EDT


After Ron Artest helped the Lakers win the NBA Championship and thanked his therapist, he made sure to tell ESPN’s Doris Burke that his new single, “Champion,” was about to be released.
Well, he wasn’t kidding. Neon Tommy, a blog affiliated with USC’s Annenberg School of Communication, has Artest’s single in its entirety. I don’t think Queen fans have to worry about “We Are The Champions” getting replaced, and it’s a less interesting/humanitarian/insane project than Artest’s “Afghan Women” R & B music video was, but “Champion” has its own charms. (Note: the “Afghan Women” music video was made private, and it’s all but impossible to find now, but I saw it once, and can vouch for its existence.) 
So click the link and take a listen to “Champion.” If not, be comfortable in the knowledge that Artest won’t be giving up his day job any time soon.

    The Laker organization should buy that taxi driver a new cab since his was destroyed by their “fans”. That is the right thing to do.

    Ron Artest did a great job with his new Champions song. I’m not a fan of hip-hop but his Champions song is catchy. Artest certainly fits in well with the Hollywood scene and I’m sure he’ll have more championships to celebrate in the future. Despite all the naysayers Ron Ron has arrived as a great NBA player and he did a great job fitting in with the Lakers. With his last second put back against the Suns and the last game where he kept the Lakers in despite their poor shooting Artest has proved himself to the doubters. We Love LA and we Love Artest! Looks like Threepeat City here we come next year as the Lakers will finally catch the Celtics in championships won!
