SHIT IS REAL, YOU GUYS.
In the midst of yet another Drake snipe on today’s DJ Khaled song “They Don’t Love You No More,” Jay Z threw some shade at the NCAA and the sport of lacrosse. This has garnered some attention.
Fuck a NCAA n***a, let a young n***a get paid, n***a
N***as talking down on the crown
Watch them n***as you ’round got you wrong
Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my draw string
Wrong sport, boy, you know you’re as soft as a lacrosse team
While Mark Emmert is yet to respond, laxers did, dropping their spoons and taking to Twitter to passive-aggressively slam ‘Hova for his betrayal. (Because you don’t just soundtrack ACC games with “Run This Town” and then bash lax bros.)
One of the most common tweets went along the lines of “Jay Z wouldn’t last a minute in a lax game,” (see above) and, hilariously, the MLL—the sport’s highest level—chose that line of reasoning as their official response.
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.
As I previously said on Twitter, Lax Bros v. Jay Z is the defining rap beef of our time. It is. And I fear this will only end with an Amherst midfielder bashing Jay’s knees with a Warrior stick, Nancy Kerrigan style.
