Music Rumors

Say what you want about Lonzo Ball but the kid is taking the usual order of operations and throwing them in a blender. The former UCLA star didn’t wait to be drafted before becoming the face of a $495 shoe. He didn’t wait until playing a single meaningful minute in professional basketball before going on a full-on media tour. So it’s really no surprise that he didn’t wait to release a rap song. Here it is. The freestyling Ball is using the name ZO2 and using Drake’s “Free Smoke” as the beat.
The song ESPN is using during the NBA playoffs, Kendrick Lamar’s single Humble, has now been turned into a parody video with a Warriors twist. Athletes Underground posted the video this week that features a cartoon Draymond Green as Lamar. He raps about the doubters, the Raiders, and mostly just about how the Warriors are so great that “it’s hard to be humble.”
Granted, I’m from California, but when I think country music, I think whiskey and exes who live in Texas. Why does it speak to you? Jimmy Butler: It’s really laid back and mellow. And there’s always a story behind it, some truthful story that happened to you. People say it’s sad, but I’m getting to learn about you through your music, just from what you wrote in the song. I’m friends with a lot of them now — Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Russell Dickerson. I try to support them as much as I can in the offseason, traveling to different cities. I respect the hell out of what they’re doing.
