Wow! Yes, you read the headlight right. Lonzo Ball dissed Nas, essentially calling him irrelevant, while naming off Migos and Future as “real hip-hop.”
During the first episode of the Ball family’s docuseries Ball in the Family, the 19-year-old Los Angeles Lakers rookie was asked about hip-hop… and he made the controversial statement.
In the clip, Lonzo is told that he would be encouraged to listen to “real hip-hop” during filming. Immediately realizing that meant music from before his time, he replied, “That’s not gonna happen.”
“Y’all outdated man. Don’t nobody listen to Nas anymore […] Real hip-hop is Migos, Future.”
The internet responded just how you think they would. Most called it blasphemy, though many young fans appeared to agree.
The realest shit Lonzo Ball ever said is "No one listens to Nas anymore."
