Spider Studios in Cleveland, Ohio, has plans to release a secret hip-hop song recorded by LeBron James and Kevin Durant, who are currently head-to-head in the NBA Finals.

The studio tweeted a 23-second preview of the song on Monday and said it will release it in its entirety if they get a million retweets. As of this posting, the studio only had 8,000 retweets.

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, James and Durant recorded the track six years ago during the 2011 NBA lockout. At the time, James played for the Miami Heat and Durant was with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Sports Illustrated transcribed lyrics from the preview.

Durant: “Every hater all the same/I’m feeling like the world is Skip Bayless and I’m LeBron James.”

LeBron: “It ain’t easy, on the path I’m on/But put the world on my back ’cause I’m that strong/Long journey I been on from the very start/No way I die off, with this iron heart.”
