Damian Lillard is back as Dame D.O.L.L.A.
Already a problem on the basketball court as an all-star guard for the Portland Trailblazers, Dame is looking to officially plant his flag in the hip hop world with his new album, Confirmed. A follow-up to last year’s The Letter O.
Why the album title, Mr. Lillard?
“I named the album that because there’s always been something said about me spending time in the studio, even though I’ve always shown up and produced for my team every night,” says Dame. “I’ve never had issues with stardom. I’m also not new to music. I’ve always created music while playing at every level of basketball. But now this is no longer an experiment. This is my second album. I’m putting out respectable music yearly. I’ve invested in that. I’m settled in. I don’t feel the need to answer questions or address concerns. This is who I am and what I do.”
As far as the artwork, Dame wanted to pay homage to some of his favorite artists: the crown for Biggie, the gold rope and Rolex for Nas, and the praying hands for 2pac.
