Throughout history, athletes have tried to transition into the rap game, many failing miserably. Damian Lillard has proven to be an exception, as he has continually impressed with his skills on the mic, rapping under the name Dame D.O.L.L.A. He first turned heads with his Sway on the Morning freestyle over a year ago, and he's since shown his ability to put together his own original songs (his SoundCloud page runs deep). Still unconvinced? Well, Dame's latest track, "Talk to Em," is produced by Jahlil Beats, automatically warranting a listen.
This isn't Dame's first attempt at a Jahlil beat, as they teamed up February for "They Sleep." It's unclear how the Blazers all-star linked with the Philly producer, but he'd be wise to keep him in his corner. "Talk to Em" also features two of Lillard's close affiliates in V.I.P. and Bozzle. The next step for Dame is to get Jahlil to link up a collab with Meek Mill. Could be deadly...
That Porsche got a Hemi, look what God sent me
Pull up in my gate and see a Beamer, Benz, and Bentley
I hardly ever brag, and I hardly ever sag
But tonight my pants low, and 200 on my dash
