You know you’ve reached peak popularity, for better or for worse, when you make it into a rap song. Unfortunately for Ryan Lochte, it’s for worse.
Earlier this week, Lochte had a scary moment on the set of Dancing with the Stars, when protesters rushed the stage following his performance.
In the aftermath of the incident, Lil Wayne took a shot at Lochte during his performance with Chance the Rapper and 2 Chainz on Thursday’s episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show (the line happens around the 4:05 mark in the video below).
During his verse in the song “No Problem,” Wayne altered the original line to say, “And if Cash Money tries to stop me, I’mma let ’em rob me, yeah right, like Ryan Lochte.”
Man, when it rains it pours.
The line change definitely had the desired effect, as there was an increase in the energy level of both the performers and the audience afterward.
It appears that as much as Lochte may be done with the past, the past isn’t done with him.
