Lonzo Ball Released a New Line of Shirts to Specifically Troll Nas Fans
Lonzo Ball is Illmatic
The most random beef of 2017 has been LA Laker Lonzo Ball’s (one-sided) beef with legendary rapper Nas.
Back in September, Lonzo publicly stated his hip-hop position: he claimed that rappers like Migos and Future were “real hip-hop,” while someone like Nas was “outdated.”
Nas didn’t say anything about the comments (he probably didn’t care.) However, Nas fans were furious about Lonzo’s “ignorance.” Then, in early December, Lonzo was seen wearing a shirt featuring his face on the Illmatic cover. Ball wore the shirt in New York City, before a game against the Knicks, something people saw as a diss. This included Nas, who responded subtly on Instagram after the Knicks won.
Yup, that’s definitely a hoodie of a Nas album cover but with Lonzo’s face on it.

Well, it turns out it wasn’t just a diss. It was the introduction to a line of shirts of hoodies from LaVar Ball’s Big Baller Band’s Zo2 collection. The line features five shirts and hoodies with the design. The price ranged from $55 to $85, which is not bad, we guess, considering Big Baller Band was selling a $500 shoe earlier in the year.
It will be interesting to see how Nas responds: He could come back with an IG post, a verse, or even a cease and desist letter. It’s up to him.
Check out some of the shirts below.
