Lonzo Ball: Nobody Listens To Nas; Migos & Future Are Real Hip Hop

The new Los Angeles Lakers point guard once again offers his opinions about a rap icon.

(AllHipHop News) Lonzo Ball's opinions about Hip Hop have led to some older fans of the culture to give the Los Angeles Lakers rookie the side-eye.

In July, Ball caught some backlash when he tweeted that 21 Savage's Issa Album is superior to Jay-Z's 4:44.

The 19-year-old point guard should expect even more negative reactions from 90's heads after his statements about another rap icon from the era.

During the premiere of the Ball in the Family reality series, someone from behind the camera said they were going to get Zo to listen to "real Hip Hop" over the course of the show.

"Y'all outdated. Don't nobody listen to Nas no more," replied Lonzo.

The former UCLA Bruins player added, "Real Hip Hop is Migos, Future."

I like when these east coast dick rider prove a point . The young dude said No one listens the nas ANYMORE. Meaning you did listen , now you don't. So now the old heads that still like to to listen to the boom clap style of rapis trying to prove Lonzo wrong by bring up all of nas OLD SHIT. If niggas still listen to nas ,he would be putting out some new music, some new shit that played on the radio. Stream off the internet. Sorry for the grammer and any misspelled word . I don't remember the last time I wanted to listen to nas never liked his music .

Sometimes you have to ignore the comments of the ignorant. Yea Migo's and Future are okay but they don't have shyt on real hip hop artist. These emcee's like Jay and Nas are not letting the beat make them... They make the song. That is the difference between the two. You can understand everything word for word. These dudes are wild!!!!

This cat lost his mind. We are taking about hip hop not this pop shit. He does not understand the difference as a result of how he was raised. He went to school with white kids that don't know shit about HIP HOP so how can you blame him? He lived in a privileged neighborhood and probably did not get exposed to underground so there it is. I know kids that live in nice neighborhoods and know about Pac because their mom or dad lived in the hood and passed the music down. The white kids that know about Pac or Nas got exposure from non white friends or their parents hung around brothas.

Well, he's correct when he says people don't listen to Nas any more. Nas isn't exactly popping on the radio this day and when was the last time he made an album? He's wrong in saying Migos and Future are real hip hop though. These guys are trappers and I feel at this point, trap has moved away so far from hip hop it may as well be its own genre.

He will find out everything gets old. Difference is the greats last. Like Nas. The fact he knows Nas should let him know. But hey he likes what he likes. He's wrong, but he likes what he likes. Time will teach him. Keep living young fella. Great ball player too.

smh....comparing Nas to the migos is like comparing michale jordan to a paraplegic in basketball. How ignorant are kids these days? I can even understand if you like migos over nas for some odd reason, but to say they ARE hiphop and he is NOT when he is MORE hiphop then anyone out right now as well as the past 20yrs!

This dude is not what's happening. His dad is a buffoon, he has a major acne problem, and on top of that, he listens to inferior, "dumb it down music". This youngsters show no respect. I hope Nas burns him and everybody this young punk just mentioned who is supposedly "hot". The beats that they rap on needs to be delivered to Nas, and he "ETHERS" Future, and Migos. Show him what hip was and IS now TODAY.

I know what the real issue w/ this generation is. They know they can't compete. I come from the Pac/Big/Nas era and never once did we knock KRS or Big Daddy Kane. We strived to make shiit that was greater than what they made, but always paid homage. These crack babies have given up trying to push the genre to higher levels. Instead they make straight garbage and diss their predecessors every chance they get. Why did Lonzo say K. Dot and J Cole? He mentioned two acts that are of the utmost shittiness to go against anything creative and lyrical. Good thing I happen to know a couple 17 year olds who love lyricism and hate that mumble bs.

That's pretty much all of the young hip-hop fans these days. They're wrong, but they believe the icons are irrelevant.
