It's ESPN day for rapper Wale: The DMV-bred MC visited the Bristol, Connecticut campus of the cable sports network this morning to debate the greatness of LeBron James with ESPN First Take's Skip Bayless (Wale is pro James, Bayless is con), and then shot scenes for the video for the single "Barry Sanders" (from the Eleven One Eleven Theory mixtape) on the ESPN campus.

In the clip below, Wale slams Bayless for refusing to give credit to James, and when Bayless counters that he's more impressed by James' Miami Heat teammate Dwayne Wade, who actually has an NBA Championship ring, Wale responds: "He had Shaq! I could win a ring with Shaq!"

Wale also plugged his album Ambition, set to drop Nov. 1, and said that Bayless represents "anti-ambition." Good television!
