The feud between Lonzo Ball and fans of legendary rapper Nas has reached new heights—at which someone went so far as to make a T-shirt to troll the other party.

It all started in August when the Los Angeles Lakers rookie said the “If I Ruled the World” rapper was not “real hip-hop.”

“Don’t nobody listen to Nas anymore […] Real hip-hop is Migos, Future,” he said on the series premiere of his absolutely necessary reality show Ball in the Family, rightly setting Twitter the hell off.

Less than two weeks later, Lonzo tried to walk his comments back.

“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 told ESPNLA.

“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 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.”

It should have ended there.

But an Instagram post from Ball, posted on Thursday, appeared to take another shot at the rapper.

In the photo, Lonzo’s manager is wearing a shirt featuring the cover of Nas’ album “It Was Written,” but with the point guard’s face replacing the rapper’s.


Here’s the original.

Enough time to customize this petty-ass shirt, but not enough to listen to a Nas album one time?

Then again, no one should put any stock into the rap tastes of Lonzo or his crew, considering he raps like this and this, and once tweeted this:
