Lonzo Ball pretends to be rapper on ‘Lip Sync Battle’


Feb. 12 (UPI) — Big Baller Brand duo Lavar Ball and Lonzo Ball will compete on Lip Sync Battle on Thursday.

The famous father and son will perform at 10 p.m. EST on Paramount Network.

Previews of the episode show the Los Angeles Lakers rookie pretending to be a rapper in front of dancers while mouthing Migos’ “Bad and Boujee.”

Lonzo Ball sports a studded black leather jacket, some sunglasses, silver chains and dreadlocks during the performance. The 20-year-old was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft out of UCLA. He is averaging 10.2 points, 7.1 assists and 7.1 rebounds during his rookie campaign. He is currently benched due to a sprained left MCL.

“When the camera is rolling, he gotta know he going to go down,” LaVar Ball said in a clip for the episode. “The Big Baller ain’t gonna let you stay around. Because there are only two bad suckers and I keep telling them, I’m both of them.”

While the boisterous father has gained plenty of notoriety for his flurry of words, the oldest Ball brother is trying to make a lyrical name for himself. Lonzo Ball has released several rap singles.

On Friday, Lonzo announced he is releasing his first mixtape — titled Born 2 Ball — on Thursday.

His previous songs have included lyrics referencing police brutality, his brothers, diamonds and the Lion King.
