Portland Trail Blazers’ all-star guard Damian Lillard proved to be talented in basketball as well as talented in his rap career.
In a recent interview with Hot New Hip Hop, Dame D.O.L.L.A. has revealed how he found time for rap music. He stated:
“We make time for stuff that we wanna make time for. Music is a passion of mine. I’ve been telling people that for a long time. Obviously, basketball is my number one priority because it’s my number one career, it’s what I’m known for but, I’m as passionate about music.
I listen to a lot of music. I’m always writing. I’m always in that mind frame of being an artist. This is something that I want to do. Usually, when I’m recording, I’m in L.A. I’ve recorded in Arizona. Wherever I’m at, I’m trying to find somewhere where I can lay some music down.”
He also explained that the people who in the studio helped him for songwriting. He said:
“It helps a lot. I have a much clearer mind. Before, I wanted to create an environment of people. We would have people in their just hanging out and the music was playing. It was a good time. This time, it was much more efficient. I was able to go in. I would literally record one thing to a beat, be like “No,” and I would start over and do something else.
I would have like two songs to one beat and halfway in, I would choose the one I liked and then finish that one. It was a real process of taking my time but not wasting time.”
