LaVar Ball has claimed they've sold at least 500 pairs of his son Lonzo's Z02s.
A chunk of those purchases belong to The Game.
The Compton rapper jumped on Instagram and showed off a bill for four pairs of the controversial kicks. He also said he would be buying ten more for kids whose families couldn't afford the Zo2's $495 price tag.
In defending the Ball family and their very pricey creation, Game called out Michael Jordan for exploiting the black community, while claiming he's still spent a fortune on MJ's goods.
Check out his words:
Just bought my son @hvrlemtaylor & a few of his friends the "Lonzo @zo Ball's" #Z02 kicks just on the pure fact that I've spent over a million dollars, shit probably more on Nike's, Jordan's & other big name sneaker brands in my lifetime so why not support a family brand & a rising stars shoe..... Funny how niggas will go & buy Gucci flip flops for $300-400 with no complaints but then complain & bitch when a kid & his family is making a name for themselves & trying to grow their own brand..... I also think about all these $500 duplicate Jordans niggas out here going broke & dying over just trying to keep up with Jones's.... While MJ, as much as I love & support him & his legacy ain't really ever did much for the black community other then tax our mothafuckin' ass for the same shoes over & over as well as charge these kids parents hella money to get in these camps. & again, no hate... MJ is MJ but today I chose to support @Zo & his family.... fuck how anybody feel about it... keep making memes if that's all yo broke hatin ass can do..... maybe sometimes, people need to delete the meme app off they phone & start creating their own legacy instead of picking apart someone else's..... I will also be buying 10 more pair of @Zo's kicks for 10 kids who's parents can't afford them..... on behalf of myself & @therobinhoodproject #DatWay #TheRobinHoodProject #BigBallerBrand #itAintTrickinIfYouGotIt
