With no shame in his game, Portland Blazers star Damian Lillard is ready for all the smoke when it comes to rapping ball players–retired or not.
Earlier this summer, Dame and Sacramento Kings forward, Marvin Bagley III, traded diss tracksafter Marvin flexed some muscle on ESPN’s First Take, calling himself the best rapper in the NBA.
The beef was short-lived (although two rounds a piece is more than most rappers would do these days) and the two would go back to focusing on their respective lives and getting ready for the upcoming season.
However, the absence didn’t last long for Dame as he’s found himself in yet another rap beef, this time with NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal.
As for who sparked this battle, Dame is the culprit this time around thanks to his comments about Shaq and his rap career on a recent episode of The Joe Budden Podcast. Downscaling Shaq’s rap talent, D.O.L.L.A. said, “People weren’t looking at it like he’s a real rapper. It was like, ‘That’s Shaq rapping.’ So, of course, it was a big deal.”
In response to his comments, Shaq took to his IGTV page to let off a four-minute diss track over Dr. Dre’s “What’s The Difference.”
Never one to back down from a challenge, Dame wasted no time firing back with his own diss track, “Reign Reign Go Away.”
Who do y’all got so far? Do you think this bout will last long or will it blow over quickly? Let us know in the comments and stay tuned for more.
