Damian Lillard isn’t forgetting about his day job in the NBA, because championships are still his focus … but says he’d definitely be stoked to win a Grammy for his 3rd album.
Dame just dropped his 3rd album, “Big D.O.L.L.A.” and the early reviews are good … so good that some people are saying the NBA star has a shot at rap superstardom.
So, when we talked to Dame we had to know how far he wants to take this rap thing … and if he cares about the accolades that come along with it …. like a Grammy.
“I don’t care about it maybe to the level I care about being the MVP or winning a championship.”
So, there you have it Trail Blazers fans … you can breathe, Dame isn’t going anywhere. He did point out though, that he thinks he has a chance to do something no other hooper has, and that intrigues him.
“I care about in the sense that how many NBA All-Stars or max contract players can say, ‘I legitimately won a Grammy.'”
None that we can see … but if we’re being real, none have been as good as Dame. The man’s gotten props from some huge names in hip-hop, and is widely regarded as the best pure rapper the league has ever produced.
Question is now … how does he get to the Grammys?
“I think it all comes down to the support. I know how big play listing, and being able to get on those playlists is. I’ve gotten the support from my peers. I know they’re listening and really respecting it.”
