Two things are true about Lonzo Ball. He drops dimes and he drops bars.

There are already a handful of NBA players that spit fire. Damian Lillard, Andre Drummond and Iman Shumpert to name a few, but now that Lonzo Ball is in the league, we have enough players to ask for a dope ass cypher.

We already know about Ball’s music opinions when he hilariously said “Don’t nobody listen to Nas no more.”

I’m going to listen to Lonzo Ball’s song ‘ZO2’ and grade his lyricism thanks to the good friends at Genius.com.

[Intro]

Triple B’s man

People scared of change

We not

Zo


BIG BALLER BRAND OR GET LOST BECAUSE BIG BALLER BRAND IS OUT TO CHANGE THE GAME. DO YOU HEAR THIS BEAT?! THIS AIN’T NO ORDINARY BEAT! THIS IS A BIG BALLER BEAT.


[Chorus]

What you rockin’? ZO2s

I’m blowin’ past in ZO2s

You know I got it, ZO2

Pay respect and pay your dues

Switching lanes, ZO2 (skrrt)

I changed the game, ZO2

They know my name, ZO2

Pay respect and pay your dues


This hook is catchy and I like how he rhymes ZO2 with ZO2. These are Big Baller Bars!


Shouts out out to Future keep guap on me

Shout out to beast because I keep me a lot on me

Shout to to everyone doubting me

Changing the game and they mad ’cause I’m charging fees

Know the name and see the fame

All my socials got the check

If you’re talking out of line

Put three stripes across your neck

And my Under Armour X-Men

X-Men without the “X”Man


In this verse, Lonzo makes references to Nike, Adidas and Under Armour. All good brands… but are they Big Baller Brands?

The haters are just mad that they don’t have a signature shoe like Lonzo does. It’s called Big Baller Brand, not Broke Baller Brand.


What you rockin’? ZO2s

I’m blowin’ past in ZO2s

You know I got it, ZO2

Pay respect and pay your dues

Switching lanes, ZO2 (skrrt)

I changed the game, ZO2

They know my name, ZO2

Pay respect and pay your dues


JUST IN CASE YOU FORGOT WHAT YOU WAS ROCKIN’


Pass me the ball and I’ll shoot it

I hop on the beat just to geek and go stupid

Don’t talk if you clueless

Just stay in yo lane ’cause my people is movin’

With them Bs, issa movement

And I dropped out of school ’cause I’m smarter than student

Only one year I was done with the Bruins

Slavin’ for free, I was offered to move it

Millions of dollars, I took it, I’m human

I’m taking that case, I don’t care if I lose it

Brodie on beats, and it’s sounding so fluent

Trust in the brand, ’cause you know what we doing


LONZO WASN’T GOING TO KEEP BALLING FOR FREE AT UCLA. IT’S NOT BRUIN BALLER BRAND.

Y’all can deal with biology. Lonzo has more important things to deal with like getting the Lakers to the playoffs.

REMIND THEM WHAT YOU ROCKIN’ THOUGH.


What you rockin’? ZO2s

I’m blowin’ past in ZO2s

You know I got it, ZO2

Pay respect and pay your dues

Switching lanes, ZO2 (skrrt)

I changed the game, ZO2

They know my name, ZO2

Pay respect and pay your dues


In closing:

Lyrics – Not the best, but definitely not even close to the worst lyrics I’ve heard this year. He should quit basketball and change his name to Lonzo Bars, to be honest.

Beat: Beat is fire.

Overall: Not a bad song I’ll give it a BBB/10
