If having a Lambo, reality show, over a million followers on IG and your own signature shoe by the age of 16 isn’t enough to brag about and be a shoe-in for “Most likely to succeed” in a yearbook, how about having an extremely talented rapper/big brother drop a song about you and your shoes? Well, Lil Dicky — the unofficial fourth brother in the Ball family — didn’t drop a song about Melo and his $395 kicks but his Lakers rookie/big brother Lonzo did.
“On the ball, that’s just what it is. I’m a king, lil bro a prince. Throwin’ racks and you throwin’ fits. How you hatin’ and you bangin’ this?”
So, if Lonzo is king and Melo is the prince, what is LaVar and mid-brother LiAngelo?
I’m just kidding and I can see how a lot of his fans will find this song hot but don’t expect too many compliments from hip-hop fans that still listen to Nas.
I don’t know if this is a coincidence or not but half of the NBA players to ever release a full rap album were also once Lakers: Shaq, Metta World Peace, Joe Smith and Kobe Bryant. Actually, you can scratch Kobe because the label decided it was best for Kobe to never let his fans hear his K.O.B.E album.
