3:42 PM PT — Lillard just spoke about the rap battle with reporters … but claimed he and Shaq have NO beef — and he considers their lyrical squabble now over.
“I said what I had to say about it. He’s retired now and I’ve still got to play,” Lillard said … “It’s no beef or nothing like that, he just dissed me and I dissed him back.”
Damian Lillard just dropped a new diss track to respond to Shaq … and it GOES HARD.
The song is called “Reign Reign Go Away” and it’s pretty solid. He clowns Shaq’s movie career — from “Blue Chips” to “Kazaam” — makes fun of Shaq’s physique and then mocks his NBA championship count, with a strong Kobe Bryant reference.
“Kobe won you those rings though.”
You’re gonna want to listen to this!! Here are some choice lines …
— “I finna tangle with the Diesel. You’re jealous of me and I see you.”
— “All the money in the world but they traded you for Penny.”
— “I’m new school, got new hits. Space Jam, not Blue Chips. Hangman, your shoe’s sh*t.”
Remember, this all started because Shaquille O’Neal put out his own diss track aimed at the NBA superstar … after Lillard said people don’t consider O’Neal as a “real rapper.”
In Shaq’s track, the NBA Hall of Famer brags about having more money and rings than Lillard … saying, “You ain’t even Trevor Ariza” and will never be Steph Curry.
Shaq calls himself a Lamborghini and says Dame is a “barely charged Tesla.”
At the end of the day, we’re told it’s all in good fun — it ain’t like Biggie and Tupac — there’s mutual respect between the two.
Will Shaq respond again?!!? God, we hope so.
