The Ja Morant suspension has been one of the most divisive and hotly discussed debates in the NBA in recent memory. While many figures within the league get into enough arguments over it, even those in the wider pop culture world gave their two cents. Of course, the rap sphere is no different, with various MCs and industry leaders chiming in with criticism, concern, or defenses. The latest to do so is Memphis' own Moneybagg Yo, who apparently spoke to the Grizzlies player concerning his gun-toting incident. During an interview on the Complex show 360 With Speedy, he said that Morant still has a lot of growing to do.
"Unfortunately, the situation going on with it right now... he 23, I feel like it's just a phase," Moneybagg Yo shared concerning Ja Morant. "He probably don't even understand. When I was exactly 23, 24... it was like I was just doing stuff and people had to tell me, or I had to bump my head. So I'm grateful to make it out those situations. Some people don't even shake back from certain situations, you feel me?

"I feel like he don't even know what it is right now," he continued. "He probably don't believe this is life. You have those stages.

I done went platinum, I done this show, I done been with this person, I've been on interview with you and everything, I still go back to Memphis and I'm in the trap. I'm in the hood, I'm pulling up on the block, smoking, chilling. Like, 'Bro, what you doing?' I had homeboys like, 'Bro, what you got going, bro, get out of here. You blowing the spot up,' you know what I'm saying?
"So I just look at it like, 'This one of them phases,'" the Hard To Love artist concluded. "Ja gon' snap out of it, and of course I gave him encouraging words.
