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Ya’ll outdated, man,” said Lonzo.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.
