Flores responded to Stills by playing eight straight Jay-Z songs to open practice Tuesday.

Stills got back at his coach Wednesday by playing Nas in the Dolphins’ locker room. Jay-Z and Nas had a lengthy rap feud that included a number of shots and diss tracks. Jay-Z and Nas have reconciled, though it took many years.

Jay-Z isn’t the only person the 27-year-old Stills has criticized during the preseason. He also called out Dolphins owner Stephen Ross’ support of President Donald Trump. Stills took issue with Ross supporting the president and being part of a non-profit that promotes equality. Stills and Ross met, but “agreed to disagree” on the issue.

Given all that, it’s unclear what’s going on with both Flores and Stills right now. Are the two merely engaging in some good-natured trolling, or is this the start of a decade-long feud?
