Lonzo Ball Disses LaVar Ball’s Performance of Nas’ ”Hate Me Now” on ‘Lip Sync Battle’
Love him or hate him, when LaVar Ball appears on television, it's hard to turn away.
It's going to be especially difficult to look away when LaVar appears on the upcoming episode of Lip Sync Battle. A preview for the episode, which airs on Feb. 15 at 10 p.m., features LaVar going head-to-head with his NBA star son Lonzo Ball, as he performs Nas' "Hate Me Now."
A fitting song for two reasons, "Hate Me Now" perfectly captures LaVar's brash persona and could also be a dig at Lonzo, who has feuded with Nas in the past. "If I was Nas, I'd be mad he put on a performance like that on my song," Lonzo says during the clip.
"Nas told me that only a selected few can do this," LaVar fires back.
Over the summer, Lonzo caught heat from the hip-hop community over statements he made about Nas. The Los Angeles Lakers point guard then doubled-down on his comments saying, "Y'all outdated, man. Don't nobody listen to Nas no more... Real hip-hop is Migos and Future."
While Nas never responded to Lonzo's comments, the rapper's manager did. "Nas has never heard of you and Future thanks you for your support," Anthony Saleh tweeted. "That oatmeal face nigga thinks he can gain off my guys name before winning a game. I don't care what team you play for. Family first."
Although we shouldn't expect a diss track from Lonzo anytime soon, the NBA star appears to be taking his comments in stride. In a separate preview for the upcoming episode, Lonzo puts on a performance set to Migos' "Bad and Boujee."
