West Coast rapper Lil B is taking his issues with Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant to the next level by announcing plans to try out for a local NBA basketball team.
Lil B announced his determination to make the Golden State Warriors team earlier this week.
"I wanna let you know ima be trying out for the nba golden state warriors in october lets stay #based and positive - Lil B," he tweeted September 26th. (Lil B's Twitter)
"WHOS SOME OF THE BEST BASKETBALL PLAYERS IN MINNEAPOLIS ??!!!! I WANNA HAVE SOME FULL COURTS DM ME IF YOU NBA OR TOP IN STATE - Lil B" (Lil B's Twitter)
Earlier this month, the Based God called out Kevin Durant and accused him of dodging his b-ball challenges.
"This is the second time KD backed down playing one on one game with Lil B Keep it forellllaa i dont no who really bout that hoop li - Lil B," Lil B tweeted September 2nd.
"If u serious bout dat hoop or nba DM me - Lil B," he tweeted September 3rd. (Lil B's Twitter)
Reports claim tensions between the basketball star and rapper sparked back in late spring.
It started during the playoffs last year when KD called Lil' B a "wack" rapper. You know how rappers love them a celebrity beef to up their profile, you had a feeling this was not going to die Now Lil B has a new video out called "Warm Ups" on which he calls out Durant. So Durant took to twitter and said "Yo shut up." I like it. I think the "yo" really makes it. Durant stuck with that theme in his next tweet: "Yo leave me alone lol, if you wanna play me you gotta come to OKC I'm not coming to Oakland." Actually, Durant will be in Oakland on Jan. 23 because Golden State's Oracle Arena is in Oakland, but that's nit picking. Besides, Lil B was all down with coming out to the OKC to play and tweeted: ""So book a ticket to OKC for this Monday? @KDTrey5 I WILL BE THERE FLIGHT IN THE MORNING, AND PREP."

Recently, KD revealed what hip-hop artists he would ink if given a record label.
"If I started a record label today I would sign Drake, I would sign Wale and Rihanna," said KD. "Drake, just because he has that icon type of status now. Wale, hometown guy on the come up. Just like me, a young guy that's trying to find his way. Rihanna is just -- she's like the new thing for the women side of what she does and she's doing a phenomenal job." (SWAG)
