Here's to squeezing a lemon to the rind. 

Per a TMZ report (h/t Bleacher Report) Los Angeles Lakers rookie point guard Lonzo Ball will switch hats, and perform in a live rap concert in Lithuania.

LaVar Ball presented an award at Lithuania's M.A.M.A. Awards (something akin to the Grammys) he introduced Lonzo in a pre-recorded video where he announced he travel to the country to showcase his "Triple-B" flows. 

If youre a Lithuanian who just cant get enough of the Ball family, and also a rap fan, this has got to be great news! Im sure this is going just how Lonzo Ball always dreamed it would, with a crackling breakout concert performance in the hip-hop hotbed of, umm, Lithuania.
