From the department of: Rats Ass, Who Gives A

Somewhere there is an AP sports reporter who, as a boy, dreamed of covering the Super Bowl or the World Series, and tomorrow morning he will pick up a newspaper to read his latest report and wonder when and why his career went so horribly horribly wrong:

The way Shaquille O’Neal sees it, he soars higher than Kobe Bryant, and he’s got the rap to back it up. And the Miami Heat center isn’t crazy about Detroit Pistons center Ben Wallace or the rapper Skillz, either.

O’Neal, when not dominating NBA games, has dabbled in hip-hop over the years. His latest effort is a collaboration with DJ Vlad on the CD “Hot in Here Part Five.”

On “You Not The Fightin’ Type,” O’Neal sets out to even scores with several people: Bryant, who he believes got him traded from the Los Angeles Lakers; Wallace, whose Pistons defeated the Lakers for this year’s NBA championship; and Skillz, whose rap “The Champs is Here” celebrated the Detroit victory.

“I heard your little interview and what Ben Wallace said. I ain’t got no response for spider-web head,” O’Neal raps.

“Even with wings you never as fly as me,” he continues. “You remind me of Kobe Bryant trying to be as high as me … but you can’t … even if you get me traded … wherever I’m at, I’m Puffy; you Ma$e and you’re still hated.”

[…]

“That upsets me. That angers me. That hurts me,” Bryant said in a story posted on ESPN.com this week. “They did what they had to do. That had nothing to do with me.”

The vast wasteland just gets vaster and wasteier…
