Oh shit!!! Born Ready finna blow (and not in LeBron James ear this time)!!! Just when you thought Meek Mill couldn't possibly be having a worse day. All the sudden an enigmatic NBA player borrows his beat, and this may be a little bit biased, but absolutely CRUSHES it. If Meek Mill is still alive his first order of business should be to drop that Drake beef and worry about more pressing issues. Like the fact that Lance Stephenson AKA Born Ready AKA Slim Ross AKA Apollo Creed just beat up his beat like Sylvester Stallone at the end of the 'Rocky'. God, Philly just stays losing. Meek needs to do all he can to get the record off every shelf in America before people start realizing he's only the second best 'rapper' to use it. You think it's bad when the softest spitter in the game makes you look like Le Femme Nikita in front of your girl? You thought your anaconda couldn't snuggle up any tighter next to your own asshole? Just wait until a basketball player swoops in and drops a better record than you on the same damn day that you finally release your long awaited diss track. If there is a group of people less respected in the hip-hop community than R&B singers it's athletes turned rappers, yet both handed Meek Mill a death sentence on the same damn day. I wouldn't be surprised to walk past the local 7-11 and see Meek outside sitting Indian style, with his hat in hand, collecting bars. It's certainly better than his current hobby of collecting L's.
If I know anything about Lance Stephenson it's that he's socially aware. Rappers don't respect basketball players on wax, but they do when their song gets released immediately after the biggest train wreck of a diss record since Benzino's career passed away. Lance Stephenson is 'Born Ready' and Meek Mill is 'Ready To Die', or at least he should be with how this last week has transpired.
I know I hated on Damian Lillard for worrying more about rap than about basketball, but Lance has got to it all figured out. See, unlike Meek, you can actually understand Born Ready's bars, and this one struck a chord with Clippers fans everywhere, “I’m just tryna be the best baller I can be / Rapping is a hobby I just do it when I’m free.” Basketball? Hip hop? We are taking the game by storm this year! Even is Lance brings his 17% three point shooting with him, at least he'll provide some in-game entertainment both on the floor and through the speakers. He's the captain now...
...and apparently he took some tips from Aubrey (no homo).
