Major League Lacrosse Responds To Jay Z


Game On.

Hov knows lacrosse? On Khaled’s new single, Jay raps: “Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my drawstring/ Wrong sport boy, you know you soft as a lacrosse team” Major League Lacrosse caught wind of the lyric and challenged Shawn to 60 seconds on the field. Don’t want no one minute man?

“Lacrosse is often called the fastest sport on two feet. Players are on the field dodging and shooting balls at over 100 miles per hour. With that said we don’t think Jay-Z knows what he’s talking about when he calls Lacrosse ‘soft’ I can guarantee you it is anything but a ‘soft’ sport. Mr. Carter would not last one minute on a lacrosse field during a match and he is more than welcome to come to any of our games and try.”

    • alex

      I disagree, lacrosse isn’t one of the big 4 or 5 primetime sports in the u.s (if you count nascar) what do they lose by responding? Fans?

  • Michael Ibbett

    Haha…I was gonna say he cant even rap normal lines anymore…but then I remembered, lacrosse, the native American sport truly isn’t all that soft

  • yorapper

    Lacrosse way tougher than ball. It’s basically like hockey, you can check and fight.

    • Michael Ibbett

      Word, the same people that were scalping the pilgrims, didNT play soft sports….especially comparing it tho basketball

  • jimj87

    it was a lame diss I get it lacrosse is considered a Canadian sport and you wanna throw shots at drake but this one was weak cuz ppl been saying drake’s soft since 2010… and that song is lame
    You’re the so called “G.o.a.t” couldn’t find something more original?

    • TeRRiola

      • smoss44

    • TH

      How is lacrosse considered a “Canadian sport”?? Never heard that one, It was invented by American Indians and is pretty damn popular in most all East Coast major universities! This is where the stretch comes in of people attempt to analyze ever Jay-Z lyric as a dis towards Drake now, and vise versa. #JUSTSAYIN

  • BigBen

    jay always talking about shit he knows nothing about

  • el jim chapo guzman

    The owners of Canadian hockey arenasinvented a reduced-size version of the game, called box lacrosse,

    pretty sure jay was referencing the fact that lacrosse is a white ppl sport and that white ppl are generally soft. soft as in not bout that life not soft as in dont have balls

    • Peekay

      ‘soft as is in not bout that life’? Which life, the one where he’s living in his $10 million+ penthouse, doesn’t have to lift a finger and can buy anything he wants? FOH! White people are soft? Explain, cuz you sound racist.

      • PTK

        racism never has and never will have anything to do with a black person calling a white person “soft”.

  • Matthew Morgan

    Sigh once again fellas it’s n just entertainment

  • Peekay

    Says the guy who’s going on tour with his wife. This guy is so out of touch with what’s ‘hard’ these days. Basketball is ballet compared to lacrosse

  • NAS

    Hove can’t even run a mile without stopping with his out of shape ass… He to busy doing old folks stuff vacationing and all that rich shit . shouldn’t of said that lacrose is soft, ha

  • Nathaniel

    it’s just a rap lyric, niggas. damn. and why the hell would jay z (who doesn’t play lacrosse) go accept a challenge to ‘last on the field.’ nigga prolly don’t even know the rules. it’s JUST a rap lyric.

  • Int’l J

    Lol @ Nathaniel. Niggas get truly in their feelings when you talk about HOV. Yooooo calm down, he’s just flesh and blood! Yak panties be gettin knotted like shit!

  • tim

    It’s because lacrosse is seen as a ‘white rich privileged’ sport. The kids are “soft” and drive their parents Land Rovers….
