— Coming fresh off the release of his third studio album, Big D.O.L.L.A, Portland Trailblazers All-Star Damian Lillard has shared his desire to win a Grammy award.
As the saying goes, “ball players want to be rappers and rappers want to be ball players”. The bad news is that most people on either side lack the actual skills to cross over to the other. But, every once in a while, we get a talent such as Damian Lillard, A.K.A Dame D.O.L.L.A, and we have to legitimately give credit where it’s due. Dame is easily one of the most elite players in the NBA and he’s also got BARS… but are they Grammy worthy?
In a recent interview with TMZ, Dame stated that when all is said and done, he’d love to have a Grammy under his belt, or at the very least, a performance at the BET Awards. Lucky for us, we get to see a current showcase of his musical talents since his latest album, Big D.O.L.L.A, was just released this past Friday.
Big D.O.L.L.A was released through Dame’s independent record label, Front Page Music and includes features from well-known artists like Lil Wayne, Jeremih, and Mozzy. The album also features his own artists Brookfield Duece and Danny from Sobrante.
