Could this be the rap beef of 2019?
We have Nas vs Jay-Z. LL Cool J vs Canibus. 50 Cent vs Ja Rule. And now…. Portland Trail Blazers Dame Lillard vs NBA Hall of Famer Shaq.
The two set social media on fire yesterday (Oct. 1), after releasing diss tracks against each other.
It all comes after comments Lillard (who recently released an album under the name Dame D.O.L.L.A.), made about him on the Joe Budden Podcast, “people weren’t looking at it like he’s a real rapper,” Lillard said. “It was like, ‘That’s Shaq rapping.’ So, of course, it was a big deal.”
Shaq responded with a 4-minute track dissing the point guard.
Shaq dropped a 4-minute diss track on Damian Lillard!
