Damian Lillard aka Dame D.O.L.L.A. Talks Getting Q-Tip & Blxst For Self-Titled Album

NBA star guard Damian Lillard is a force to be

reckoned with on the basketball court, but he’s

also skilled with a microphone. When he’s not

torching teams with his limitless shooting range,

Lillard is putting in work on his music as Dame

D.O.L.L.A, and it looks like he’s about to embark

on the next phase of his music career. 


During a recent interview with Ebro Darden on

Apple Music, the six-time All-Star spoke on his

upcoming album and revealed who’s on it as well

as the proposed release date. 


“It’s a self-titled album, the next one,” Lillard told

Ebro. “I’m going to drop it in August probably,

and on that, I got Q-Tip on there, Blxst, Jane

Hancock, I got my boy OG Tree from Oakland too.

I think this album I went much deeper.”


He added, “I went from making it fun, or trying to

have people like it, but I went more into like I got

more information now, more understanding of

how successful I am and what it means to have the

experience I have, and why it’s valuable in the

business that I’m in and why I can carry things

this way.” 


Rappers are taking notice of Dame D.O.L.L.A,

such as J. Cole, who recently sampled him on his

latest album, The Off-Season. On the track

“punchin’.the.clock,” Lillard’s postgame interview

following his 61-point performance against the

Dallas Mavericks in the NBA bubble on Aug 11,

2020, was used on the song.


 Before he can officially focus on the rollout for

his upcoming self-titled album, though, Dame has

to worry about Team USA’s lukewarm

performance during the 83-76 loss to France in

the basketball group stage opener at the 2020

Olympic Games in Tokyo.


The team faces Iran on Wednesday (July 28) and

the Czech Republic on Saturday (July 31), two

games they need to win if they want to move on to

the quarterfinals. It’s Dame time.
