Someone come get Lonzo Ball.
The 19-year-old championed by overzealous dad LaVar Ball has worked the nerves of Twitter users for claiming Nas isn’t a factor when it comes to hip-hop.
Now, Ball may be a Los Angeles Laker, but his hip-hop knowledge is severely lacking. He may get cut some slack since he’s only 19 years old, but true hip-hop heads know about the greats — regardless of their age.

Immediately, Twitter users held nothing back when it came to criticising Lonzo Ball.

Some folks, however, felt Ball kinda had a point.
The realest shit Lonzo Ball ever said is "No one listens to Nas anymore."

In all fairness Lonzo Ball is 19. Nas has never been poppin during his cognitive lifetime

Still, Ball has an idea of who some of the rap icons are and included them on a 2016 list of his favorite MCs. But he still had Future on the list, much to Twitter user’s chagrin.
Top 5 all time in order…
