Lil B sure knows how to hold a grudge. In 2011, the Based God called out NBA star Kevin Durant, who the rapper said had called him “wack.” According to SBNation, Lil B put a curse on Durant and his team, the Oklahoma City Thunder, saying they would never win a championship, only to later relent. Then, in 2012, B took to Twitter to challenge Durant to a one-on-one game. Durant accepted but never made good on his promise, and the two traded lighthearted insults via Twitter in the following months. All was quiet on the Lil B/KD front until this year’s NBA All-Star Game, when the Based God tweeted, “AND F—K KEVIN DURANT LIL B FOR LIFE – Lil B.”
Now he’s upped the ante with a new song, “F*ck KD,” and a hilarious video to accompany it. Reworking DJ Khaled’s “Brown Paper Bag” for the “F—k Kevin Durant” chorus, B spends less time dissing the player than he does big-upping his own basketball skills. “Let’s play a game of 21, it’s really fun / I got half court shots and I’ll post you up,” he sorta-rhymes on the track, which will appear on his Hoop Life mixtape. He also makes a point to mention Durant’s agent, Jay Z, in the refrain: “I like Roc Nation and I love Jay Z / But on the West Side I’m screamin’ f—k KD.” The video, meanwhile, features Lil B training in what appears to be a hotel gym, drilling threes and missing lay-ups. He looks like he’s got some skills, but at 5’6″, he’ll probably have a hard time with the 6’9″ Durant, which is yet another reason we’d love to see this game happen. Make it happen, KD.
