The best part about rap is it allows an individual all the time and space he or she needs to express themselves on any topic they see fit.
But his verses on the track aren’t just about any shoes—they’re about his little brother LaMelo‘s new Big Baller Brand shoes, the first signature kicks ever for a high school player, which would be an impressive feat if they weren’t essentially made by his dad.
Get the pause button ready, it’s that cringeworthy.
Thankfully Zo didn’t have enough rhymes to make the song last longer than two and a half minutes.
Here are some choice lyric samplings (courtesy of Genius), in case you’re allergic to rappers with little flow to speak of and thus can’t bear to listen:
See my little brother?
He just doing him
You can check the ‘Gram, he got a million fans
Got his brothers, he don’t need no friends
He’s swagged out, he a walking gym
Then he focuses his rhymes on the shoes. The track is called “Melo 1” after all.
Melo dip, and the Lamb dippin’
Got his own shoe, ‘cos it’s only fitting
Big Baller Brand, yeah we do it different
This was all part of Big Baller’s vision
He the youngest to do it
I’m rappin’, he hoopin’
I’m passing, he shootin’
The game, we polluting
We rap in the moment
We not with the losing
We ready for war, we Triple B troopers
The song debuted as part of an exclusive video SLAM created to unveil Big Baller Brand’s MB1s.
