Jay Z was trying to diss rapper Drake with a lyric on DJ Khaled’s new track They Don’t Love You No More, which also features, Meek Mill, Rick Ross and French Montana. The lyric goes as follows:
“Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my drawstring/ Wrong sport, boy, you know you soft as a lacrosse team.”
Having grown up in New England, I can tell you that Lacrosse is a violent sport and anything but soft. Rightfully so, Major League Lacrosse wasn’t thrilled and released the following statement, via MTV News:
Lacrosse is often called the fastest sport on two feet. Players are on the field dodging and shooting balls at over 100 miles per hour. With that said we don’t think Jay-Z knows what he’s talking about when he calls Lacrosse ‘soft’ I can guarantee you it is anything but a ‘soft’ sport. Mr. Carter would not last one minute on a lacrosse field during a match and he is more than welcome to come to any of our games and try.
I can’t believe they didn’t bring up some of Lacrosse’s violent history dating back centuries. Maybe they could team up with Drake to get the inactive Hamilton Nationals of Hamilton, Ontario up and running again.
