The beef is over. 

Portland Trail Blazers star guard Damian Lillard announced Monday that he has a new mixtape on the way, with one of the tracks featuring Shaquille O'Neal

Lillard and O'Neal had previously been in engaged in a rap battle, with two exchanging digs on their own tracks. O'Neal said in October that it had all been in good fun, however.

"The thing that went on for me and him was just for fun," he said. "I think he's really, really good and he's very talented. We had fun."

Here's betting that whatever Lillard and Shaq collaborate on will be better than the recent trend of sportswriters rapping on Twitter. To be fair, it's a low bar to clear.
