Over the last year or so, Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard has taken on a second persona as Dame D.O.L.L.A. The Oakland native has dropped numerous hip-hop tracks on his SoundCloud, and his debut album dropped Thursday.
Lillard has bars–there’s no question about it. The singles that he dropped over the summer had excellent production, lyrics, and painted vibrant pictures of Lillard’s life before blowing up as an NBA superstar.
At midnight EST on Thursday morning, Dame dropped his debut hip-hop/rap album, The Letter O, on iTunes, Apple Music, and Spotify. And it’s http://laparkan.com/buy-sildenafil/ very impressive.

With the help of big-name music stars Jamie Foxx, Lil Wayne, and Juvenile, Lillard’s 12-track project touches on a myriad of different issues, and it does so without an expletive, which is just as impressive.
At one point, #TheLetterO was trending on Twitter, and guys from around the NBA showed much love to the league’s most overlooked star:

Being from Northern California, maybe Lillard will team up with likes of Too Short, E-40, and G-Eazy for a Bay Area collaboration.
