Major League Lacrosse has criticized Jay Z for describing lacrosse as a "soft" sport on his verse from DJ Khaled's "They Don't Love You No More".
The first time you heard Jay Z's verse on DJ Khaled'sÂ "They Don't Love You No More", you may have speculated that Hov was dissing Drake in his final bars. One thing that likely didn't cross your mind as you were getting caught up in subliminals was the unapologetic shot he took at lacrosse in the process.
"Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my drawstring / Wrong sport boy, you know you soft as a lacrosse team".
Well, a spokesperson for Major League Lacrosse certainly caught the jab, and unlike Drake, he felt the need to respond instantly.
The league gave the following statement to MTV, setting the record straight on the sport, as well as challenging Jay to try it for himself.
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 donât think Jay-Z knows what heâs talking about when he calls Lacrosse 'soft.' I can guarantee you it is anything but a 'softâ sport.'
Mr. Carter would not lastÂ one minuteÂ on a lacrosse field during a match and he is more than welcome to come to any of our games and try.
