American professional basketball player Lonzo Ball recently spoke to XXL about who he grew up listening to and who his favorite rapper is.
The Los Angeles Lakers player revealed Lil Wayne has always been his favorite rapper and explained the reasons why.
You can read exactly what Lonzo said below. Earlier this year, Ball also called Wayne an influence!
So being that you’ve been a fan of rap music since you were young, who did you grow up listening to?
When I was little I definitely listened to a lot of DMX and 50 Cent. Those were probably the two main rappers I was listening to when I was young, but my favorite rapper has always been Lil Wayne.
Why is Lil Wayne your favorite rapper then?
Man, Wayne has been doing this for so long and has always been consistent with his music. Lyrically, he’s definitely one of my favorites to do it. I need him to be free so he could put that other album out for me, but he’s already put a lot towards the game.
