Lonzo Ball Channels His Inner ‘Migo’ On ‘Lip Sync Battle’
Lonzo Ball has been taking some time away from the ball court after being sidelined with a strained MCL, but that doesn’t mean that he’s had to sideline his side gig as a rapper.
Aside from announcing his debut mixtape Born 2 Ball on Saturday, the Los Angeles Lakers guard continues to (sort of) get his rap on in a preview of the upcoming episode of Lip Sync Battle.
In the clip of Thursday’s episode — in which Lonzo will take on his father LaVar in a Big Baller Brand showdown of epic proportions — the athlete hit the show decked out in a flashy leather jacket, dark shades and some dreadlocks to get his best Migos impression on, performing the Atlanta trio’s smash hit “Bad and Boujee.” Ball bounced around a crowd of dancing women, in a diner serving gold chicken drumsticks.
The trailer also featured a quirky back-and-forth between co-host Chrissy Teigen and Zo after his performance; the model said she liked his “Twerking diner” during the performance. Lonzo cheekily responded, saying, “You can be in the next one,” to which Teigen replied, “I gotta gain a few…I have nothing back there,” in between laughs.
Lip Sync Battle airs Thursday nights at 10 p.m. ET on Paramount Network.
