Phil Jackson Fires Back At Kendrick Lamar … You Need a Mentor

Breaking News 0810-phil-jackson-kendrick-lamarYou tag Phil Jackson in a rap song, he”ll tag you right back — just ask Kendrick Lamar … who got a free lesson in ego management from the Zen Master after droppin” his name in a new song. 

67-year-old Jackson was definitely listening when 26-year-old Lamar called him out in Big Sean”s new song, “Control” — a song that includes the lyrics:

Who the f**k y’all thought it’s supposed to be
If Phil Jackson came back, still no coachin’ me
I’m uncoachable, I’m unsociable.

Jackson — who”s no stranger to dealing with egomaniacs (or people named Lamar) … shot back on Twitter moments ago … with a message aimed right at Kendrick:

“@kendricklamar it’s okay to be cocky and sure, but we all need somebody to lean on. Let’s just call it mentoring.”

Can”t argue with zen.
