Nas has yet to make any comments on the Lakers rookie, and Nasir’s manager claims the rapper doesn’t even know who Ball is.
But last month Ball made his feelings on Nas known during a recording of his reality show Ball In The Family.
“Ya’ll outdated, man,” said Lonzo. “Don’t nobody listen to Nas no more. Real Hip-Hop is Migos and Future.”
As you can imagine, there was a lot of pushback, with artists like T.I., Kid Cudi and Lil B blasting Ball for his disrespect of a legend.
But Lonzo remained unfazed. In fact, he seems to be trolling Nas and those critics with this Instagram post from last night.

The photo features Ball and some of his buddy, including fellow Laker Brandon Ingram. Smack in the middle is Lonzo’s manager and trainer Darren Moore. He is wearing a shirt with Nas’s cover art (it’s hard to tell if it’s Illmatic or It Was Written because they are so similar) but with Lonzo’s face instead of Nas’s.
