Several high-profile figures in the hip-hop community are sharing their thoughts on Ja Morant facing another suspension for once again brandishing a gun on social media.

Over the weekend, the Memphis Grizzlies star, who back in March was suspended for eight games without pay after flashing a gun on Instagram Live, showed off what appeared to be another weapon during an Instagram Live session. 

Shortly after the clip went viral, the Grizzlies suspended Morant indefinitely.

“We are aware of the social media video involving Ja Morant,” the organization said in a statement on Sunday. “He is suspended from all team activities pending League review. We have no further comment at this time.”

Fat Joe hopped on Instagram on Sunday to offer some advice to Ja, as the Bronx rapper warned Morant that he needs to keep his circle tight.

“That man is trying hard to go play [in] Turkey or China or Serbia-Montenegro,” Joe shared. “He’s trying hard to get kicked out the NBA. And those guys that’s with you? They not your peoples, Ja. They don’t care!

“This is a problem we have with our community becoming famous because the people around you, they like the girls that’s watching, they love the lifestyle — but they’re not you! They didn’t dribble the basketball in the snow on Christmas trying to figure out the Kobe moves or the Jordan moves. They didn’t put in the work like you!

He continued: “And guess what? If you get thrown out of the NBA, these are the same guys who are gonna say, ‘Yo, you wasn’t shit anyway. It is what it is.’ Ja, these are not your people! Anybody telling you or pointing you in the direction of ignorance is not with you!”
