Lonzo Ball got T.I., Lil B and Nas’s manager pretty pissed last week when he took a shot at Nas during an episode of his reality series Ball In The Family.
Ya’ll outdated, man,” said Lonzo. “Don’t nobody listen to Nas no more. Real Hip-Hop is Migos and Future.”
T.I. suggested the Lakers piss test their rookie, Lil B threatened a curse, and Nas’s manager called Lonzo “that oatmeal face nigga.”
In a new interview with Marcellus Wiley and Kelvin Washington on ESPNLA Lonzo somewhat clarified his statement.
“They told me that the goal for the next two months was [to get me to listen] to real hip-hop, I replied, ‘That’s not gon’ happen.’ And the first person who popped into my head was Nas, because obviously, he’s real hip-hop,” he explained.
“So I’m like, ‘Nobody listens to Nas no more,’ which I think is true, because of my friends ain’t nobody bumping Nas no more. No disrespect to him,” he continued. “He had his time, I just think it’s a new time. And then the next question was, what is real hip-hop to you? And I said, ‘Real hip-hop is Future and Migos.’ So that’s how it all went down … Everybody went crazy with it, but that’s my side right there.”
Does that explanation work for you?
Here’s Lonzo rapping, if you want to try to compare him to Nas.
