Shaquille O’Neal took his feud with LaVar Ball to the next level, dropping a diss track aimed at the head of Big Baller Brand.
The audio of the 3-minute track was released by TMZ on Friday afternoon, and Shaq can be heard lobbing insults at Ball over the beat to Jay-Z’s “Blueprint (Momma Loves Me).”
Some of the lyrics that stand out poke fun at Ball’s playing career, which he often mentions with great pride. Shaq also makes references to some of his own endorsements.
“I’ve been doing this a long time,
When you was averaging two points, riding the pine.”
“You’ve been caught up in the rapture,
And when you’re watchin’ Zo play, look up in the rafters.”
“You want to battle d’s, you better have endurance
Before you crash man, get that general insurance
Or get some icy hot, rub it on your back
Before you break that f****** around with Shaq.”
“Watch your mouth, don’t ever step outta line,
Shaq O’Neal, bro – greatest of all time.”
The bad blood between the two started when Shaq took a shot at the price of Lonzo Ball’s shoe, which came with a hefty $495 price tag. That was before Lonzo was taken with the No. 2 overall pick by the Los Angeles Lakers.

Ball responded by saying that he and his 15-year-old son LaMelo (a UCLA commit for 2019), would handle Shaq and his son Shareef in a game of 2-on-2.
