Ja Rule’s performance during halftime of a recent game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Minnesota Timberwolves did not go well. The crowd wasn’t into it, and Giannis Antetokounmpo even went so far as to head to the floor during the concert to get shots up.

This drew commentary from many on Twitter, including the Timberwolves’ own account, which fired off a tweet making fun of Rule’s performance.

That then prompted Ja to go after the Wolves in a way many recognize as being attributed to rapper Lil’ B — he cursed them.

Via Twitter:

Ja has been in the news lately thanks to his part in the disastrous Fyre Festival and the subsequent documentaries released on Netflix and Hulu this year, respectively. Perhaps he’s just trying to capitalize on that?

This is an extremely “How do you do, fellow kids?” moment from the 42-year-old rapper. If you’re going to be a weirdo who curses NBA players and teams on Twitter, you’ve got to be the first one to do that. No sense in being the second.

Then you just look crazy.
