It's not often that local artists get dragged by the American faction of Black Twitter but Da L.E.S found himself on the receiving end for an outfit he wore to a basketball game.
This came after US basketball publication SLAM Magazine posted a video of Da L.E.S. wearing a head-to-toe Cleveland Cavaliers uniform at the game over the weekend captioning the post: "Whose mans pulled up in the head-to-toe LeBron fit?".

It didn't take long for tweeps to throw shade and read the 'Lifestyle' rapper's outfit for filth.
With American tweeps commenting on his choice of wearing a fanny pack and question why he was wearing an armband.
I can’t excuse the whole uniform. But it’s worse because this man is also wearing an armband. WHEN ARE YOU PLANNING ON GETTING ON THE COURT MAN pic.twitter.com/nCMCdSz3LH— KWhitPlayin (@kayjay812) June 9, 2018

Lmaooo the fanny pack makes it worse. At least he got some good seats tho. It’s his 3rd grade gym teacher I’m hearing from sources.— Swagzilla #DramaWorld (@SlutsLoveMe) June 9, 2018

Fortunately, South African tweeps came to the rapper's defence and tried to negate some of the harsh criticism Da L.E.S was recieving.
