Jay Z Calls Lacrosse "Soft," Major League Lacrosse Responds

Posted by - 12:17 PM on 04/29/14
Welcome to hip-hop in 2014: on the newest DJ Khaled track "They Don't Love You No More," Jay Z raps "Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my drawstring / Wrong sport boy, you know you soft as a lacrosse team," in a possible Drake diss. This didn't go over well with Major League Lacrosse, who took the opportunity to lambast Hov, claiming that he "wouldn't last one minute on a lacrosse field," and go on to say "he is more than welcome to come to any of our games and try."
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.

Good part of the song is calling him calling out the NCAA. I dont care about Lacrosse at all and iv'e never played it but it's laughable he calls that the softest sport with his association with professional basketball. Also, his first 8 lines or more and rhymes are just so, so bad, youre better than that Jay. and i really cant stand his overuse/repetition of "*****" here it's cringe worthy to me.

Yeah I don't really understand why he would call it soft considering his association with basketball. Half of what those guys do is flop around on the ground.

Pretty sure Jay Z isn't referring to the toughness of the sport, just that stereotypically its players come from an upper-middle class background, like Drake. He's not talking about lacrosse as much as the difference between he and Drake's backgrounds.

guess the lacrosse organization saw it as a nice opportunity for publicity
