Lonzo Ball hasn’t taken the floor in a while as he’s dealt with an injury that has kept him sidelined for the Los Angeles Lakers‘ last 12 games. In that time, a lot has happened, as the Lakers have acquired a new backcourt mate for him in Isaiah Thomas and word came out that he’s going to become a father for the first time.
It was also announced that Ball’s rap career will take a step forward, courtesy of a concert in Lithuania where he’ll perform over the summer. And late on Friday night, Ball dropped a massive piece of news, as he plans on releasing his debut album later this month.
Ball posted a pair of pictures on social media with a caption announcing that his first album, “Born 2 Ball,” will drop on Feb. 15, 2018. The two pictures include the album’s artwork, an old picture of Lonzo and LaVar Ball with a Big Baller Brand crayon photoshopped in, along with its set list.
The fact that he kicks this album off with tracks titled “LaVar,” “ZO2,” and “BBB” is tremendous, and we’ve actually heard a “ZO2” in the past. A number of NBA players have released music over the last few months, and on the same day it was announced that Big Baller Brand would release its own line of water, it looks like we’re only a few days away from adding the Lakers’ rookie point guard to that list.
