Lakers rookies Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma have an interesting relationship off the court, as the two — along with Josh Hart — regularly spend their time busting on each other on social media. Kuzma and Hart often make jokes about Ball’s efforts as a rapper, while Kuzma’s fashion sense is often a target for Ball.
On Monday, Ball took things to a new level by posting a new diss track about Kyle Kuzma titled “Kylie Kuzma” to iTunes, featuring an album cover with Kuzma in a cowboy hat. The song, which will cost you $1.29 to listen to, was promoted by Ball on Instagram who found the whole thing quite funny.
The two have the relationship one would associate with two brothers, constantly antagonizing one another, and Kuzma responded in kind in Ball’s Instagram comments by saying he wouldn’t be coming back with a Pusha T like response, but would instead be “whoopin yo a**” on Wednesday, presumably when the two will see each other next.
Jordan Heck of Sporting News transcribed the lyrics, which you can find here, but there are a few lines that are coming into question for some about whether Ball went a bit too far.
Don’t know who your daddy is, well your ass is getting sonned
We both taking shots, the only difference is you ain’t hitting none
Usually do this s— for fun, but trust me boy I’m not the one
If you the bullet, I’m the gun, If you the pot, I’m cooking some
Kuzma, as Heck notes, has never met his biological father, so the “don’t know who your daddy is” line certainly is an aggressive choice for what one would expect to be a somewhat friendly diss track between teammates. Now, this might be all in good fun and Kuzma will see it that way, but it’s definitely an escalation from their usual line of jokes.
