Rapper Master P goes old school on LaVar Ball over feud with president: ‘Just be thankful’ to Trump

Rapper Master P had words of advice for LaVar Ball, whose feud with President Trump over his son’s release from China for shoplifting boiled over into a national controversy.

His son, college basketball player LiAngelo Ball, faced up to ten years in a Chinese prison for the alleged incident, which took place on a team visit.

LaVar Ball refused to give President Trump any credit for the extradition amid the criminal charges.

“It’s not like he was in the US and said, OK, there’s three kids in China, I need to go over there and get them? That wasn’t the thought process, right?” Ball said in an astounding CNN interview, while refusing to thank the president and implying that he himself was involved in getting the three players home.

The president wasn’t too pleased with Ball’s comments, to say the least.

“It wasn’t the White House, it wasn’t the State Department, it wasn’t father LaVar’s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence – IT WAS ME,” Trump tweeted on Wednesday.

Now, Master P has some words for advice for Ball, which come via a TMZ interview.

“I just think it’s a blessing to have your kids back at home, man,” he said. “You gotta just be humble.”

Master P didn’t hesitate to bring God into it, saying that showing gratitude is the Christian thing to do.

“I put God first, so I think that if somebody help you … that you be appreciative, that’s it,” the rapper said, suggesting that Ball end the feud, thank Trump, and be done with it.

It doesn’t appear that any thank you to Trump from LaVar Ball will be coming anytime soon, but he may want to consider thanking him for the nearly $13 million in free advertising time Ball has gotten since the feud began.
