NEW YORK — Stay in yo lane! LaVar Ball, father of Lakers star Lonzo Ball and contentious patriarch of Big Baller Brand, is garnering financial aid from an entertainment tycoon who knows a thing or two about operating a remunerative business. After proclaiming he’s 100 percent behind the Big Baller honcho, rap mogul Jay-Z purchased three pairs of ZO2 shoes — priced at $495 each. Why? Because the 47-year-old music icon believes African-American companies deserve more support, especially from blacks.

“Why wouldn’t I support him?,” Jay-Z retorted during a recent interview released on the Rap Radar Podcast on Tidal. “He feels like he could move culture and his son has a big enough name and a big enough brand that they can do it. Nike had to start somewhere. Why do we get so upset when we, us as a culture, want to start our own shit? That shit is puzzling to me.”

With affluent artists like Jay-Z on board, there’s no telling how far BBB can go.

    I have no problems with Ball starting his own brand, but 500 dollars is bugging. The price goes down, and the designs don’t look like something I would see at Payless or any other bargain brand stores in the hoods I’ll proudly support BBB. Until then I’ll pass.

  20. You people are so far stuck up your ass! You can see that Jay-z just gave Lavar Ball a stamp of approval! Which translates to, Kid walks into sneaker store and says quote “OH, this are the joints Jay-z was talking about, I’m getting them right now” end quote! Or placing an order on line to be the first one with them… Coonery never stops!

  21. Damn Jay, you bought $1500 worth of sneakers??
