O'Neal's "Second Round Knockout" is set to Diddy's "Victory" instrumental and belittles Lillard's historically not-so-great performances in the NBA playoffs.
"Talking crazy ain't gone get you nothing but smoke," he raps. "Like when we see you in the playoffs every year when you choke."
Then O'Neal gets creative with some vulgar insults. "First of all little boy, this ain't beef/You just a [expletive] talking while I'm hitting/Call it a queef," he spits. "You rap because you need to, dog. I do it for sport/When you run I see the tampon string in your shorts."
The nearly four-and-a-half minute verbal assault continues with more brutal burns like "I can tell in your flow that you're rattled. How you a battle rapper when in your real job you ain't win no battles," and "You shoot too much. Dudes on your team hate it. Keep talking, [I'll] make a phone call, get you traded." Shaq concludes with a blatantly sarcastic "Good luck this year" and a menacingly hearty laugh.
In case you you haven't been following this baller beef, it was ignited when the Lillard claimed to be a better rapper than O'Neal on Joe Budden's podcast, according to CBS Sports.
Shaq then responded with four minutes of bars arguing the opposite. He began with "Daddy has to come out of retirement to spank one of these undisciplined children," before attacking Lillard directly, calling him a worse player than the Sacramento Kings' Trevor Ariza.
Complex has a good summary of what ensued.
Shortly after Shaq issued the challenge, Dame responded with a diss track of his own. He then channeled his inner Drake and decided to get two response songs out before Shaq could answer the first one.
In Dame's second diss track, he accuses Shaq of having ghostwriters and keeping the feud going for clout. "I'mma get the tommy and do the Diesel like Proctor," Dame spits on "I Rest My Case" in a Power reference. "Your pen kind of sketchy you should've left me/Sensitive I almost confused you with Lisa Leslie."
Now that the ball is back in Lillard's court, don't be surprised if there's yet another diss track in this epic war of words.
