Lonzo Ball Says Nas "Had Its Moment"
The L. A. Lakers' point-guard also confirms that he thinks of the Future and Migos are "real Hip Hop".
L. A. Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball is standing by controversial comments he made about Nas, confirming that the future of Hip Hop is Migos and Future, at least for him.
In a recent interview with Marcellus Wiley and Kelvin Washington of ESPNLA, the NBA rookie attempted to clarify his controversial statements, but ended up only solidifying them.
"They told Me that the goal for the next two months was [to get me to listen] to real Hip Hop, I answered, "That's not gon' happen'", he explained. "And the first person that came to mind was Nas, because it is obvious that he is real Hip Hop.
"So I'm like, 'No one listens to Nas no more", which I think is true, because my friends don't collide with anyone Nas no more," he continued. "There is not a lack of respect for him. He had his time, I just think it's a new time. And, then, the next question was, what is real hip-hop? And I said, 'Real hip-hop is the Future, and Migos.' This is how it all went down ... all over the world went crazy with it, but at my side."
Last week, Lil B threatened to put one of his famous curses on the Ball by his comments, but on Thursday (7 September), The Pack rapper acknowledged that it was a simple difference of opinion and as revised in not respecting the culture.
"Big baller is the mark of the family all have opinions lonzo ball was not wrong what he said.. just please respect hip hop. thank u love u," Lil B, he wrote.
