One of the most-talked about lines from the song comes from Hov (“Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my drawstring/ Wrong sport, boy, you know you soft as a lacrosse team/”); which is being questioned as a subliminal shot towards Drake in response to his multiple digs.
In a written statement to MTV, a Major League Lacrosse spokesperson responded with the following:
Lacrosse is often called the fastest sport on two feet. Players are on the field dodging and shooting balls at over 100 miles per hour.
With that said we don’t think Jay-Z knows what he’s talking about when he calls Lacrosse ‘soft’ I can guarantee you it is anything but a ‘soft’ sport.
Mr. Carter would not last one minute on a lacrosse field during a match and he is more than welcome to come to any of our games and try.
As a fan of pretty much every sport, I have to agree. Those Lacrosse dudes get down! That and the fact that Hov isn’t the most athletic person doing it haha.
