3 best songs of Damian Lillard
The Portland Trail Blazers not only need to keep other teams at bay when it comes to Damian Lillard, but his passion for music as well.
Not only is he underrated on the pitch, but he’s also seriously underrated on the mic. While even casual NBA fans know Lillard works in the moonlight as a rapper, few have really listened to his music.
The superstar playmaker spits as he hoops, with purpose, aggression and a small advantage to him. His gruff voice matches his simple yet punchy bars perfectly. His rhythms and instrumentals are purposely simple, a callback to the hip-hop era he grew up with, to emphasize and complement the lyrics and delivery without overpowering the MCs. His flow is deliberate and unmistakable, in the same way he attacks the field with full substance and minimal flash.
