May 10 (UPI) -- The Big Baller Brand has at least one famous fan. Rapper The Game posted his receipt Wednesday after buying several pairs of Z02 Prime basketball shoes.

He posted a screenshot of his order from the Big Baller Brand on social media. According to his total of $1,995, he likely bought four pairs of the Lonzo Ball Z02 Prime signature shoes. Ball's sneakers retail for $495.


But there is a slight hitch.

The shoes, which already had a delayed shipping date of Nov. 24, will take even longer to arrive now.

In The Game's photo, his receipt reads: "Because of high demand, our fulfillment center is experiencing a 1-2 week delay (in addition to shipping time). Please take this into consideration when purchasing for gifts, etc. Thank you for your business consideration."

The Game referenced the haters in the caption for his social media post. He also pledged to buy 10 more pairs of shoes for kids "who's parents can't afford them."

"Just bought my son @hvrlemtaylor & a few of his friends the "Lonzo @zo Ball's" #Z02 kicks just on the pure fact that I've spent over a million dollars, [expletive] probably more on Nike's, Jordan's & other big name sneaker brands in my lifetime so why not support a family brand & a rising stars shoe," The Game wrote. "Funny how [expletive] will go & buy Gucci flip flops for $300-400 with no complaints but then complain & [expletive] when a kid & his family is making a name for themselves & trying to grow their own brand..... I also think about all these $500 duplicate Jordans [expletive] out here going broke & dying over just trying to keep up with Jones's.... While MJ, as much as I love & support him & his legacy ain't really ever did much for the black community other then tax our [expletive] for the same shoes over & over as well as charge these kids parents hella money to get in these camps. & again, no hate... MJ is MJ but today I chose to support @Zo & his family.... [expletive] how anybody feel about it... keep making memes if that's all yo broke hatin [expletive] can do..... maybe sometimes, people need to delete the meme app off they phone & start creating their own legacy instead of picking apart someone else's..... I will also be buying 10 more pair of @Zo's kicks for 10 kids who's parents can't afford them..... on behalf of myself & @therobinhoodproject #DatWay #TheRobinHoodProject#BigBallerBrand #itAintTrickinIfYouGotIt."

After a sensational freshman season at UCLA, Lonzo will enter the 2017 NBA Draft. He is expected to be a lottery pick.
