Michael Jordan's Son Laughs Off Kanye West's Jumpman-Referencing Nike Diss Track 'Facts'
Michael Jordan’s son, Marcus Jordan, is laughing off Kanye West’s new Jumpman-referencing diss song “Facts.”
In the song, which dropped on New Year’s Eve, West references Future and Drake's hit "Jumpman,” rapping, "Yeezy, Yeezy, Yeezy just jumped over Jumpman." The lyric is clearly dissing rival Nike, which owns the Michael Jordan-related merch logo Jumpman. West, of course, has his own shoe line Yeezy with Adidas.
Marcus Jordan took to social media on Saturday (Jan. 2) to respond to the diss track. "Yeezy just jumped over @Jumpman23 ??” LOL I needed a good laugh to start my #2016,” he tweeted. The younger Jordan followed with another tweet containing a GIF of his legendary father cracking up.
Listen to “Facts” on West’s SoundCloud page.
