As you may know, there has been a longstanding feud between Bay Area rapper Lil B and Kevin Durant. The beef started a few years ago with the Based God placing a "BASEDGODS CURSE" on Durant stating that KD would never win the an NBA title. Coincidentally, B placed the curse on Durant in 2011. Mavs fans know all too well how the Western Conference Finals turned out that year. Coincidence? I think not.
Now, B has rekindled his feud with Durant and has a new video. It's v. based (NSFW).
Did you catch that? "Three point on a bitch like Dirk Nowitzki/Up in the club like Dirk Nowitzki." V. RARE.
Who can blame B for admiring Dirk's game, though? Nowitzki's threes, especially in transition, are to be feared. And Dirk in the club? Yeah, we all remember him drinking that $110,000 bottle of champagne in the club in Miami after winning the title. Game recognize game.
This isn't the first time that Dirk has been referenced in a rap song, though. Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill mentions his shooting ability in a track with Waka Flocka Flame titled "Let Dem Guns Blam." (3:24)
Seems like Dirk is really leaving his mark on popular culture despite avoiding the spotlight. However, being mentioned by the Based God could be the ultimate achievement.
THANK YOU BASED GOD!
THANK YOU BASED DIRK!
