There was a recent fight between Portland TrailBlazers’ basketball player Damian Lillard and former basketball star Shaquille O’Neal.
Dame D.O.L.L.A. and Dj Diesel had shared the songs they dissed each other in turn and then there be tension between them.
After all, Shaq brought clarity to this issue. At a recent Los Angeles event, Shaq confessed that his Damian Lillard diss track was a joke and it was not real beef between them. He said:
“The thing that went on for me and him was just for fun. I think he’s really, really good and he’s very talented. We had fun.
“We all come from the same place. My thing is, if you say you’re better than me, I accept the challenge. If he says ‘I look better than you,’ then okay, I gotta hit the gym and work out; if he says ‘My shoes are whiter than yours,’ then I gotta go to the store and pick out a better pair. Other people take that stuff personally but I don’t. If you challenge me, I’ll step up to the challenge.”
Also, In a recent interview with Uproxx, Damian Lillard said that the fight with Shaq was not real. He said:
“Obviously Shaq is the pioneer, the one that did it and went big and had a lot of shine on him about the fact that he was doing music. I’m trying to come behind that and do the same thing with the gold and platinum records and all that stuff.”
