"Mr. Carter would not last one minute on a lacrosse field during a match"

Jay Z and Drake's beef is currently being played out in the Brooklyn Nets-Toronto Raptors NBA playoff series, although it took an unexpected twist into another sport when the DJ Khaled's posse cut "They Don’t Love You No More" dropped last night.

Jay Z's verse is the source of the outrage, but not (yet, at least) from Drake, his target in spitting, "Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my drawstring. Wrong sport, boy, you know you soft as a lacrosse team." Instead, Major League Lacrosse fired back at Hov, pointing out in a statement to MTV News their sport's apparently unheralded toughness:

“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 don’t think Jay Z knows what he’s talking about when he calls lacrosse ‘soft.’ I can guarantee you it is anything but a ‘soft’ sport… Mr. Carter would not last one minute on a lacrosse field during a match and he is more than welcome to come to any of our games and try.”

The beef between Jay Z and Drake began when the latter commented to Rolling Stone, “It's like Hov can't drop bars these days without at least four art references!”

Subsequently, Jay Z fired back with his "We Made It" freestyle and Drake came back with his "Draft Day" freestyle and by commenting during the NBA Playoffs (watch below), "Jay Z is somewhere eating a fondue plate.”

The Mike Zombie-produced cut also features Rick Ross, Meek Mill and French Montana.
