Boosie Badazz, D.C. Young Fly and Ja Morant‘s father had quite the time at a recent Memphis Grizzlies game, making it to the jumbotron as they hit the Swag Surf while courtside.
The jubilant moment went down in Atlanta on Sunday (March 26) as the Hawks went up against the Memphis Grizzlies. The following day, Boosie shared a clip of their dancing to Instagram.
“WE CUT UP BAD LAST NIGHT,” he wrote in the caption.

The game was only Ja Morant’s third since returning to the court following an eight-date suspension for brandishing a gun on Instagram Live on March 3. In his time away from the organization, Morant checked into a Florida counseling program for a brief stint.
He made his long-awaited return on Wednesday night (March 22) as the Grizzlies took on the Houston Rockets. The team has won all three games since Ja’s been back on the court.
Just before his first game back, the NBA star crashed his teammate Santi Aldama’s postgame interview after defeating the Dallas Mavericks and shouted a bar from NBA YoungBoy’s 2022 track, “Fresh Prince of Utah.”
“It’s a parade inside my city, yeah,” Morant shouted while his teammate joined him in repeating the bars. Aldama finished with 22 points and 14 rebounds in helping lead the Grizz to a 112-108 victory over the Mavs.
Skip Bayless wasn’t a fan of Ja’s quote of choice, however. The sports pundit saw it as a lack of maturity considering the nature of what happened weeks earlier.
“If I just take quoting a rap lyric in a vacuum, it’s like so not a big deal that it’s laughable that we’re even discussing it,” Bayless said to Undisputed co-host Shannon Sharpe. “But we can’t, when it comes to Ja, take it completely out of the context of what he just went through. So, I’ll just say this, it was not a good sign that he quoted that rap lyric.
“Ja jumps right in the middle of it because he can’t restrain himself. And he quotes a rap lyric, ‘It’s a parade inside my city, yeah!’ And it’s just straight jubilation … The problem is that line comes from a song that’s just rife with gun violence, well a lot of rap lyrics have [gun violence].”
Skip continued: “But then, said rapper, if you go back and look at his recent past, he’s been in jail several times for robbery and attempted murder and all kinds of assault charges, so he fits the part of the song, he’s actually playing the role of the song. It’s not the best look to quote that rap lyric just as you’re coming back from dangling a gun. In a vacuum, it’s the smallest deal. In context, it’s a reasonably big deal, to me.”
