Marvin Bagley III might think twice about mentioning Damian Lillard's name when it comes to rapping again.
Dame had time Thursday.
When Dame Dolla isn't sending your team home from the playoffs with 37-foot, series-clinching buzzer beaters, he's liable to be in the booth cooking up something serious. (Except this summer when he'll reportedly be shooting Space Jam 2.)
Marvin Bagley III also has an interest in rapping, and when talking on ESPN's First Take, he said he would be down for a potential rap battle with Damian Lillard.
He also dropped a song that featured Lillard in the artwork and was accompanied by a tweet with just a watch emoji, which is normally reserved for Dame Time.
The young man might not have wanted to open his mouth.
Because similar to Russell Westbrook, Bagley had to find out the hard way that Dame doesn't appreciate when you speak down on him.
So first of all, bold move choosing the same beat Drake used on "Duppy Freestyle" when he responded to Pusha T last year. Especially considering that Drake took a major L after hopping on this beat himself.
And then he added the perfect touch by going with "MARVINNNNNN???" as the name of the diss as if he's Soulja Boy on The Breakfast Club after feeling disrespected that Drake's name was mentioned in comparison to him.
Triple entendre, don't even ask me how.
Bagley responded to Lillard with a diss track of his own on Friday.
There's no telling how long this back-and-forth will last, but hopefully the content keeps coming. This is exactly the kind of rap beef the NBA needs.
