As all we know, Portland Trail Blazers all-star guard Damian Lillard loves making rap and he trying to stay standing in his rap career. He is aware that his talents have an important place in the rap industry.
In a recent interview with Hot New Hip Hop, Dame D.O.L.L.A. has explained what he hopes to accomplish in hip-hop. He wants to break the barries as a hip-hop artist. He said:
“Honestly, it’s not about making money. It’s strictly about my music. I want people to listen to my music and say “This dude broke the barrier. He really did it.” My stuff is getting played everywhere and people are listening to my music. I’m doing shows. I’m doing a tour and I’m an NBA star and a rap star at the same time. I want to be the person to break that barrier and open the door for people to really take it seriously.”
He also explained what fans should expect on this project. Dame stated:
“Expect a more up-tempo, more fun, album. My first two albums required a lot of listening to get it. I think this one feels better. If you out and you hear it come on, the production is better. Overall, it’s more relevant and recognized. It’s almost like a humble flex, the whole album. It’s like me and the truth but what the public knows.
They know I just signed a max extension. They know that I live in a big house. They know that I have nice cars. They know all this stuff but they don’t know it about me. They don’t know my attachment or my connection to it because I’ve never spoken on it. Now, I’m letting them know. I’m letting them in on the fun side instead of the “I come from the neighborhood and I had to struggle and I had to do this,” it’s more on the fun side than that.”
