Lonzo Ball Celebrates 20th Birthday With New Song “Get Off”
Lonzo Ball and the Los Angeles Lakers may be six games into the 2017-18 NBA season, but the rookie point guard isn't putting his rap career on hold.
In celebration of his 20th birthday, the Lakers' rookie dropped his birthday single, "Get Off." Produced by EBE, "Get Off" finds Lonzo rapping about improving his game on the court. "I put in early mornings, yeah, and I'm grinding late night/Shooting 2s and 3s, but nah homie, I ain't talking dice/Working on my game, I tune it up just like a bike/But you can catch me in the G, and you know it's all-white/On the court I'm making plays, and in the booth I'm making slappers/I always kept it real, I ain't never been no actor," he spits.
"Get Off" is just the latest song released by Zo. In September, the NBA rookie dropped the track "Zo2," in honor of his newest sneaker of the same name. Like "Get Off," the lyrical content of "Zo2" stuck mostly to basketball. ""What you rockin'? Zo2s/I'm home, pass the Zo2/You know I got it, Zo2/Pay respect and pay your dues/Switchin' lanes, Zo2/I change the game, Zo2," he rapped."
During an interview with XXL, Lonzo revealed he and the Ball family created a record label so they drop more projects and said more stuff was coming in the future. "Yeah, so we actually set up a label and there's definitely stuff coming in the near future. I can't really talk about the upcoming stuff, but more is to come."
While the point guard won't be able to run the label himself, a close friend of his dad Lavar would. "I won't be able to do so since I'm focused on the NBA season ahead, but definitely one of my dad's close people that he works with will handle the record label [Big Baller Music Group]."
