Lonzo Ball will be spitting some bars in Lithuania this summer.
The Ball family has taken Lithuania by storm, with Lonzo's two younger brothers, LiAngelo and LiMelo already lighting up the domestic pro men's league with their play. However, this summer's going to be big for the Ball's stay in Lithuania is about to be big for an entirely different reason.
According to TMZ, Lonzo Ball announced that he'll be performing his first ever rap concert (yes, you read that right), as a headliner, this summer in his family's newfound home country. A date and venue haven't been confirmed yet by Lonzo himself or any of his reps, but it's clear that the Los Angeles Lakers' rookie is bent on expanding his profile to passions outside of the sports realm. You can check out a screencap of his announcement, which happened on Lithuanian TV, below.
TMZ has clarified that the telecast on which Lonzo made the announcement is called the "M.A.M.A. Awards," which is supposedly Lithuania's equivalent to the Grammys. LaVar Ball was presenting the award for Hip-Hop Act of the Year and introduced Lonzo's prerecorded video that contained the news. Lonzo raps under the name Zo and has already dropped multiple singles, including "BBB" and "Super Saiyan."
Obviously looking to capitalize on the growing publicity surrounding his brothers' presence in Lithuania, Lonzo's first rap concert will undoubtedly be a highly-anticipated event, both by his fans and his detractors.
