Shaq Drops LaVar Ball Diss Track
The feud between Shaquille O'Neal and Lavar Ball is only heating up more, as the NBA commentator takes new shots at the Big Baller Brand founder on a new diss track. Shaq releases the diss through TMZ, which hears him attacking Ball's former basketball career, as well as his merchandise company that has been the center of sports headlines this year.
On the diss track, the veteran basketball star makes references to Lavar's past as a ball player, pointing out his 2.2 points per game average while playing for Washington State in 1987-1988.
"I've been doing this a long time, when you was averaging two points, riding the pine," Shaq rhymes.
Being that Lavar's son, Lonzo Ball, was recently drafted by the L.A. Lakers, Shaq fired off a shot by telling him to "look up in the rafters" when he comes to the games.
"And when you're watchin' Zo play, look up in the rafters," O'Neal raps.
Shaq's music video for the song displays a bunch of throwback footage of him while he was a superstar in the league, as well as some cameos of Ball himself from back in the day. The two originally began their feud when Shaq criticized Lavar for the high price of his Big Baller Brand shoes.
After being told that O'Neal sent out a diss track at him, Ball responded to a cameraman by questioning Shaq's relevancy.
"Hey man, people still doing diss tracks?" Ball can be heard asking. "Ain't he like 50? To remain relevant, he gotta put my name in whatever he doing."
