It looks like Lonzo Ball isn’t happy about the Lakers’ decision of trading him to the New Orleans Pelicans in the blockbuster move that sent Anthony Davis to Los Angeles. On Thursday, Lonzo released his second mixtape titled ‘50&30’ after the 50 points and 30 rebounds his manager, Darren Moore, dropped in a charity game.
On the very first track, “Last Days,” Ball dissed the Los Angeles Lakers and his former Big Baller Brand business partner Alan Foster.
He was quick to talk about it, as the song opens with the hook, in which Ball repeatedly says the Lakers will regret trading him:
You know I’m all about business
L.A. is going to regret their decision
Straight to the money, you know how we get it
We count up the cash and add up the digits
Getting drafted with the second overall pick in 2017, Lonzo was expected to be the point guard of the future for the Purple and Gold, but that fell apart in July when he was shipped to the New Orleans Pelicans in the aforementioned blockbuster trade for AD.
Even though he has some hard feelings towards his former team, that doesn’t compare to the things he had to say about Alan Foster, who allegedly stole an excess of $2 million from Ball’s business and personal accounts.
The 21-year-old shared his thoughts on the situation in the song:
Situations in my life will turn a boy to man
You see, I was 19 when I first met Uncle Sam
Put my trust in the wrong person, lost out on some Ls
Put that on a side bet the next day at the MGL
Money not a problem in my life, I just live and learn
I ain’t trying to patch relationships, I just let them burn
The former UCLA player filed a lawsuit against Foster, who is under investigation by the FBI, back in April.
This season Ball will start a new chapter in his career with New Orleans, a team with an interesting group of players that can make some noise next season and the ones after that.
