    I'll take Shaq's over Lillard's easily. But then I think Tupac > reading a report to music.

    Dame killed Shaq.

    He's trying to hard to sound like Xzibit on his "diss track".

    Stylewise, Shaq is more boombap.
    Dame, more modern with some triplets on his bars.

    Unfortunately Shaq tries to do a bit too much Xzibit and 2pac, but he's got a solid flow, which I didn't expect. I don't know WTF that song by Dame is supposed to be, clearly copying and making a voice ala Lil Wayne. His flow was off too at times. I just don't know why he went that way, since he's got skills, but it definitely didn't come out on this song. Can you imagine him doing that fast 'bigger than us' style in a diss? Shaq wins this one easily, mainly because he just spits more truth. I don't know how anyone can think that this particular track by Dame sounds good or that he had better lines than Shaq.

    this was an easy dub for Shaq

    Dame had to resort to ridiculous reaching by saying that Kobe won Shaq his rings. Lol, really Dame? That’s just an ignorant statement, so u take the L based on that alone. Spit facts.

    I had never listened to anything from Dame before this because I just can’t take basketball rappers seriously. However, after this, I just might listen to Dame’s album that he dropped over the summer just to see what he’s got.

    Dame was good but I liked Shaq’s better. “Why would I wanna be a rapper, rappers want to be Shaq!”

    Shaq wastes no time on the new diss track before dismantling Lillard while hyping himself up. “The sun gonna shine forever on my statues and retired jerseys / Imma live forever/ Better now or never / Kill Damian that’s my pleasure / I see you lose every day / Nobody do it better / Yeah right weak-ass bars you ain’t tight / If you spit something make sure you spit it right.”

    Following his previous Shaq diss track, “Reign Reign Go Away,” Lillard continued Saturday by dropping a new one, “I Rest My Case.” “I know you only competing for some attention / You was hot then, but today you honorable mention,” he rapped.

    Ow Shaq ended it right there, much more lyrical and again spitting facts. If this was a battle live, Shaq would just walk away and drop the mic.

    just listened to Shaq’s clap back...I’m sorry Dame, just stop...Shaq’s lyrics cut deeper than whatever you’re saying

    and I’m still not letting that ridiculous statement talking about how Kobe won Shaq his rings slide...take your L and start preparing for the regular season

    Easy WIN for Shaq even though Dame's flow is better. Dame is just spitting hot bars with no real substance. Shaq was giving everybody verifiable facts:

    -Statues/Trophies/MVPS for Shaq? Check

    -Dame choking in the playoffs? Multiple checks here

    -Kobe winning a title for Shaq? Big negative here, how bad were the Lakers once Shaq left?

    -Dame crying for all-star votes? HUGE check here. The one year he made it over George (who I think was an injury replacement later on) was almost exclusively based on Dame doing interviews complaining about lack of recognition...something Shaq never had to do.

    -Shaq an "honorable mention"? Big negative here. Shaq is easily a Top 50 player all-time and Top 3-5 at his position. You could argue that Dame may not be top 3 at his position in today's NBA.


    Dame needs to just prepare for the season so he doesn't choke again in the playoffs (just like Shaq said lol)

    I think Damian won, but what do I know? My favorite rappers are Froggy Fresh and Eli Porter.

    The problem with this whole battle is that Dame has nothing basketball-wise to keep up with Shaq... championships, mvp's, stats, etc. Doesn't matter. So now Dame's saying none of that matters because it's all in the past and ends it with all the people he knows and talked rap with. Wow. It's like he's got a pretty gun but ran out of bullets. Shaq's still firing. The Big Oaf was still flinging dynamite in this latest track.
