Damian Lamonte Ollie Lillard, stage named ‘Dame D.O.L.L.A’ was born on July 15, 1990, in Oakland, California. Damian is most well known as the point guard for the Portland Trail Blazers and has been given nicknames such as Big Game Dame for his proficiency on the court. For the short moments, he’s not on the court, Damian is honing his second talent in the realm of hip-hop.
His music career started with the release of his debut album ‘The Letter O’, which dropped on the 21st of October 2016. The album was successful as it finished it’s opening week 7th on the Hip-hop and R&B chart. It featured Jamie Foxx on the track ‘Plans’ and even Lil Wayne on the track ‘Loyal to the soil’.
Damian promptly followed up just a year later, to release his second studio album ‘Confirmed’ on the 6th of October 2016. The album excited many with the involvement of Lil Wayne on the track ‘Run it up’, and 2 Chains on the track Anomaly, giving listeners something to look forward to.
Damian Lillard’s passion for music is clear, with money most likely not being a factor considering what he makes from the NBA alone. Damian’s initial contract with the Portland Trailblazers was for $139 million, the 45th largest sports contract in the world. It doesn’t end there, earlier this year it was announced that Lillard signed a 4-year Super-Max contract extension for $196 million, the biggest contract in Portland Trailblazers history.
The NBA star is now hyping the release of his third album today titled “BIG D.O.L.L.A.” The title is a play off of his name Dame D.O.L.L.A which stands for ‘Different on Levels Lord Allowed’. The album has features from with yet another Lil Wayne collaboration on the album, as well as Jeremih and Mozzy, we are sure this project won’t disappoint.
