Patrick Beverly Blames Hip Hop For Ja Morant Controversy

Lyndon Abioye |

Patrick Beverly says Hip hop is the reason for Ja Moarant’s latest scandal.

The league officially suspended Morant for eight games due to a video he posted of himself holding a gun in a nightclub in Colorado. He says he wanted an “escape.” Morant has had several brushes with the law.

“It’s the music we listen to is real big what the rappers are [saying]. It’s crazy to say this but Charleston White was absolutely correct. The music we listen to and how that is the new brand. The music say I keep pipe, I do this and I do that. That turns into, ‘I need a pipe.’ A pipe meaning gun,” Beverly said on his podcast.

“I think it’s the music, man. I ain’t bashing the music cus I’m listening to that shit too. I’m not up at 9 a.m. listening to it though, I’m gameday listening to it. It’s not part of my life. It’s a part of a lot of people I know though, so I can relate. My homie used to do that, my homie got locked up for doing that, or my homie in jail for doing that or my homie died from doing that.”

Morant claims he did not own the weapon.
