In what very well could be a first, lacrosse was mentioned in a hip-hip track. Lacrosse was not happy.

On DJ Khaled’s new single, “They Don’t Love You No More,” megastar Jay Z spits the following line, apparently directed at fellow artist Drake:

“Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my draw string/ Wrong sport, boy, you know you’re as soft as a Lacrosse team.”

In stepped Major League Lacrosse, an eight-team league that includes a team in Annapolis.

“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,” a MLL spokesperson told MTV News in a written statement issued on Tuesday (April 29).

“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,” the statement continued.

To top it all off, MLL issues a challenge to the battle-tested MC. “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 statement read in closing.

Jay Z has yet to respond to this challenge, but he and wife Beyonce will perform in lacrosse hotbed Baltimore on July 7. No word on if any protests are planned.
