Shaquille O’Neal Throws Shots at LaVar Ball in Heated Diss Track [LISTEN]
LaVar Ball has been feuding with Shaquille O'Neal ever since he released his expensive Big Baller sneakers into the marketplace. Shaq took issue with LaVar charging $495 for his kicks. In response, Ball said that he and and his son LaMelo, a top recruit in high school basketball, would “kill” Shaq and his son Shareef in game of 2-on-2. On Friday (July 28), Shaq-Fu dropped a diss track against Ball to remind him of his legendary status in the NBA.
Over JAY-Z’s “Blueprint (Momma Loves Me)” track, Shaq delivers punchlines and statistics of his overall reign on the basketball court and in the sneaker game. "I’ve been doing this a long time / When you was averaging two points, riding the pine," he raps. "You see my T-shirts / You see my feet work / Big Baller Brand, that was me first."
Elsewhere, Shaq addresses LaVar's claims that he and his son would annihilate him on the hardwood. "You beat me? That’s a bunch of bologna / You think you’re Mailman, you ain’t even Jeff Maloney," he rhymes. "Listen here, they call me Steph Harden / I make the same salary as Steph and James Harden / Two hundred plus, two fourty eight / You do the math man, damn my life is great."
He then adds, "You want to battle me, you better have endurance / Before you crash man, get that general insurance / Or get some icy hot, rub it on your back / Before you break that f---in' around with Shaq."
LaVar appears to be unfazed by Shaq's diss. When a fan asked him about the former Laker's diss song, he scoffed at it. "People are still doing diss tracks?" he asked. "That all he is...a shack. He needs to stay in his own lane."
"His career been over for a long time so it's time for him to jump on the Big Baller Brand coattails," he continues. "I get it, it's entertainment. He's a good rapper though, for somebody who doesn't like rap."
