Twitter can apparently be used for more than just mischief making, activism and unexpected beefs, as it appears LeBron James managed to coax a new album out of rapper Kendrick Lamar. SBNation notes that the NBA star tweeted at TDE label head Anthony Tiffith after seeing the performance at this year' s Grammy awards (pictured above), asking for the release of Lamar's unreleased tracks . Fast forward a couple of weeks, and the eight-track album untitled unmastered. has just appeared on iTunes, Google Play, Tidal and Spotify.

Just to make things clear, Tiffith told Instagram followers to thank LeBron for the album's release. That's great, but it could be bad for his mentions, since now people will ask him to use the power of 140 characters once more and coax a new season of Firefly out of Netflix or Amazon.
