In a recent episode of the Joe Budden Podcast, Damian Lillard said he's a better rapper than Shaquille O’Neal.
Shaq -- who's gone platinum as a rapper and has won four NBA titles as a player -- didn't much care for a man with a much lighter resume calling him out like that.
So the 47-year-old got back in the lab and dropped the Dame-diss "The Originator".
In his bars, Shaq compares Lillard unfavorably to his cotemporaries Steph Curry and Russell Westbrook.
And, of course, to himself.
“You see this flow it got a little Hall of Fame on it/Dame shoot jumpers/Shaq still bang on it,” he raps. “MVP candidate you are not one/Platinum plaques on my wall go and get you some/Lyrically, I’m three-time Finals MVP/I can’t believe some clown is testing me.”
Here's Dame's response, "Reign Reign Go Away."
