In what is becoming an offseason tradition, not-quite-b-list rapper Lil B has threatened to “curse” a young Los Angeles Lakers point guard.

After putting one of his famed “curses” on D’Angelo Russell last offseason before quickly lifting it, the attention-seeking Twitter personality who also apparently raps sometimes has threatened to do the same to Lonzo Ball.

Ball drew some criticism on the internet this week for having the audacity to (gasp!) not listen to the same music people 10-20 years older listened to when they were his age.

“That’s not gonna happen,” Ball said during the first episode of his family’s new reality show, “Ball in the Family,” that premiered this week. “Y’all outdated, man. Don’t nobody listen to Nas no more. Real hip-hop is Migos, Future.”

Because this is the internet, people got pissed off about that, including apparently Lil B, who decided Ball would be the latest NBA player he’d threaten with a “curse.”

Also, in case you were wondering, no, he still has not learned how to spell D’Angelo Russell:

For those who don’t know who Lil B is or why this is an article, here is my explainer from last year:

For those who are unaware, Lil B is a Bay Area based rapper who is best known on the basketball internet for putting a "curse" on Kevin Durant for insulting his music, and then doing the same to James Harden for mimicking a cooking gesture he used in a music video as his signature celebration (No, I'm not kidding. That's really what he's famous for.).
