Of all the NBA players who I think would take a shot at Canadian rapper Drake, Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young wasn’t one of them.
However, Nick took a parting shot at the rapper whose real name is Aubrey Graham in an interview that he did with Dime Magazine:
Dime: There’s a lot of buzz about Kendrick Lamar right now on the West Coast. Many people have been calling you two cousins, what’s the relationship with Kendrick and what did you think of the track “Control” with Big Sean?
NY: We cousins in real life, we family. I think “Control” was good for his side, I think he needed to clear it up a little bit and that’s what he did, he put the fire under these guys. The responses to the track were good, he even got Phil Jackson to respond. The responses from other rappers were cool. Meek Mill put something on Instagram and I wanna see what they rap about next. I still ain’t see Drake do nothing though (laughs).
If we have learned anything about Drake though, he won’t respond…
