Lonzo Ball Drops a Rap Track, and It’s as Bad as You Think

A week after dropping what's got to be the most expensive debut signature shoe for a guy who has yet to play in the NBA, Lonzo Ball has thrown his hat into the rap ring.

The projected No. 2 overall draft pick and son of the world's most shameless promoter, LaVar Ball, Lonzo's ZO2 hit the market at $495 dollars. It's been met with hilarious disbelief from fans, players, and coaches alike as well as at least one accusation of logo unoriginality.

Now the former UCLA point guard is trying his hand at the rap game without having set foot on an NBA court. Under the same name as his signature shoe, he dropped this track with DC The Don, rhyming over Drake's "Free Smoke."

It is, as you might expect, not good. Or, as his dad LaVar would tell you, better than Biggie, Nas, and Tupac rolled into one.

This isn't Lonzo's first time expressing himself through rhyme for the masses, though. Back in August 2016, he dipped into the "So Gone Challenge" and posted the results on Twitter, featuring little brother LaMelo in the back seat.

Let's hope, for the sake of his dad's company Big Baller Brand, that he operates better on the NBA floor than he does over a beat.
