Just because I morant flashed guns on camera while listening NBA Young Boy and rap music don’t blame hip hop…say so Mainowho tells TMZ Sports the blame for Morant’s misfortunes lies entirely with the Grizzlies superstar – and no one else.
We took the “All the Above” rapper out in Los Angeles this week days after Morant was seen again on a social media live stream waving around a gun… and he told us right away that Morant had to pull himself together quickly.
He said he was concerned about the people Morant surrounded himself with … telling us he was worried they weren’t advising the basketball player to make smart decisions – and he suggested Ja bring others in his circle as soon as possible.

“He must have people around him who don’t care what he has to say,” Maino said.
As for those who think rap plays a role in all of this… Maino made it clear, that’s just not an excuse he thinks Morant can use.
“We know you love music, you come from a culture, but mate, truth be told, you have way more opportunities than the average person,” Maino said. “Don’t miss the chance to try and follow what’s going on.”
Maino tells us he speaks from his personal experience… as the Brooklyn native spent time behind bars earlier in his life, before turning things around.
“I’m the last person to try to condemn someone for making mistakes because I’ve made a lot of them,” he said. “Trust me!”
“He has age on his side,” added the 49-year-old. “He has time on his side. I want to see him do much better than that.”
Memphis has suspended morant team activities indefinitely on the latest video. NBA commissioner Adam Silvermeanwhile, said earlier this week that he was disappointed as announcing the league has already begun an investigation into all of this.
For his part, Morant said of the latest drama that he takes “full responsibility” for his actions … and pledged to work on himself more.
