LONZO BALL Denies Dissing The Lakers In His Latest Mixtape
Lonzo Ball has dropped his latest mixtape 50&30 and one songk seems to take a shot at his former NBA team, the Los Angeles Lakers.
The 21-year-old basketball star, who moonlights as a rapper, went straight for the kill on the very first track titled "Last Days". In it, Lonzo repeatedly claims that the Lakers will regret trading him to the New Orleans Pelicans. The lyrics go, "You know I’m all about business / L.A. is gonna regret their decision / Straight to the money, you know how we get it / We count up the cash and we add up the digits."
However, Lonzo immediately took to social media to deny dissing his former team. "I’m not dissing anybody I loved my time in LA. I use my music as an outlet to express things that happen in my life," he wrote.
As a matter of fact, Lonzo earlier told ESPN that he is ready for a fresh start with his new team. "I tell people when I was rookie, I probably would have been sad," he said. "Just being from L.A., having my whole family here, and wanting to be a Laker. But being in the league for two years, knowing it’s a business, as long as you get to play, that’s a blessing in itself. I’m excited to get started."
50&30 is the follow-up to Lonzo's debut hip hop mixtape Born 2 Ball which was released in 2018. Listen to the rest of the three-track effort here.
