According to an interview with CSNNW, Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard loves rapping so much that he is seriously considering to release a rap album in the future.
Last year, Lillard even created a rap competition on Instagram called #4BarFriday.
Here’s a sample of one of his #4BarFriday submissions:
Lillard plans on dropping a mixtape later this year and said that he hopes to collaborate with J. Cole on his major project.
“If my profile continues to increase, I think I can go platinum with my music,” he said. “Not to knock anybody else who has done it, but I can actually rap. I have a story to tell. It’s not going to just be about basketball. I have more content than that. With the way I know I can get down and the producers that I’ll align myself with, there’s no reason not to think I couldn’t go platinum. Shaq proved it’s possible.”
“[Dropping an album] is something that I’m excited about because I know a lot of people don’t expect much from me because they feel they’ve seen this before,” he said. “But I’m not like the other players that have done it. They’ll see in time.”
Do you think Lillard has what it takes to make it in the music industry?
