Everyone's Losing It Over Lonzo Ball's First Official Rap Single, 'Melo Ball 1'

Reactions range from "just play basketball" to "lemme find out Zo got Big Baller bars."

Published September 8, 2017

The Ball family sure knows how to get people talking.

Just over a month away from the start of the 2017-18 NBA season, Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball jumped onto his Twitter account last night and teased his first official rap single, "Melo Ball 1," named after his brother.

The track, being posted on iTunes today, set off a whirlwind of reactions, ranging from people telling him to "just play basketball" to "lemme find out Zo got Big Baller bars" and everything in between. Take a look at the no-chill responses to Lonzo's single.

  1. Does Lonzo Have Big Baller Bars on this track, or nah?

    Any way you look at it, people lost it reacting to the single.

  2. With or without hearing the song, plenty of people told Zo to stick to basketball

    Do you agree?

  3. Others brought up how Shaq and Kobe rapped early on during their respective careers, and they turned out just fine

    Lonzo Ball following in line as the next great Laker who rapped early on, and proved to be one of the greatest players of all time? We'll see about that.

  4. Some instantly let Lonzo know exactly what they thought of the record

    More reasons why the internet is undefeated. No chill whatsoever.

  5. But others were feeling the track or were at least entertained by the idea of it

    Big Baller Bars ... we see what you did there.

  6. After Lonzo dissed Nas last week, people couldn't help but bring up God's Son

    People ethered the 19-year-old Ball for saying "ain't nobody listens to Nas, anymore" during the debut episode of the basketball family's reality show, Ball in the Family.

  7. Whatever people think about the track, you already know LaVar Ball is like ...

    We're done.
