Lonzo Ball might be out with a leg injury, but he’s still been keeping himself remarkably busy. After toying with the idea of a rap career for a while, he’s finally diving in head-first with his forthcoming debut album, Born 2 Ball.
While he might not be the first basketball player to try and enter the rap game, he’s definitely one of the most dedicated to do it. His album is set to drop on Feb. 15, but judging from newly released clip from an upcoming episode of Lip Sync Battle, he’s already living out his rap fantasies.
Appearing on an episode that’ll see him go up against LaVar Ball for the first ever father vs. son Lip Sync Battle, Lonzo chose to perform Migos’ hit single “Bad and Boujee.” During the preshow, Lonzo said, “I feel good, I know my dad’s going to come with a lot of energy so hopefully I can hopefully, you know, match that onstage.” Looking at the preview of Lonzo’s performance, it’s clear he definitely committed to the bit.
“He’s pretty old, so I figure he might get a little tired up there,” Lonzo said when asked what his opponent’s biggest weakness was. Fighting words, indeed. It’s not clear what song LaVar did just yet, but considering how big his personality is there’s little doubt it’ll be entertaining.
