"I think maybe one of my biggest concerns in my career is just to figure out how to exit gracefully," Drake says in the secluded barbershop. "I've watched people overstay their welcome, and I just don't ever want to be that guy that's addicted to the feeling of victory...Addicted to the emotion of people digesting something that they love, and get to the point I'm just feeding them something and they're just like 'Yeah...'"

LeBron and his longtime friend and agent Maverick Carter attempted to tackle Drizzy's question, saying that its important to keep people who can deliver honesty in your corner.

"You can't have motherfuckers around you who can't keep it honest with you and keep it real with you," James said. "You need to have someone tell you 'Yo, either accept the lesser role, or you gotta tank."

The new episode airs on Friday October 12. Watch the teaser up above.
