Now The Sole Focal Point Of The Portland Trail Blazers, Damian Lillard Has Started Perfecting His Craft...As A Rapper
Next Impulse- Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers have had a rough off-season, basically having to hit the reset button for their franchise when LaMarcus Aldridge joined the Spurs. Even though this next season may be a bit of a struggle, Dame has found a way to let a little steam off (and does so without any curse words). Lillard dropped a new track entitled “Soldier in the Game” this week and you can stream it in its entirety above.
You know what, that song wasn't half bad, and that does not bode well for Damian Lillard's basketball career. Look at the rap 'careers' of Allen Iverson and Ron Artest. The were so bad at rhyming words that they had no choice but to go back to basketball. You can only focus so much on music when the only people complimenting you are those in your entourage. The problem here is that Damian Lillard is actually worthy of some praise outside of his inner circle. How do you think Damian Lillard is going to use his free time when the Trail Blazers are inevitably like 15 games under .500 by the All-Star break? I guarantee it won't go towards working on his jump shot. Better put a mini-hoop in that studio. He's not playing to win anymore. The Blazers roster is cringeworthy. He's not playing for a contract anymore. He just got a 5 year max deal. A 5 year max deal that is going right to financing the production on his debut album. Fuck his footwork, Dame DOLLA needs to work on his ad-libs. Assist to turnover ratios don't earn street cred. Bad bitches and number one hits do. If he was smart he would give Gilbert Arenas a call. Every rap entourage needs a wildcard. Damian already mastered the whole professional basketball player thing. It's time to take the rap game by the balls, and that is no part time job. Time to turn 'Rip City' into 'Rap City' while the Trail Blazers head straight to the 'The Basement' of the Western Conference.
P.S. I got to say, risky maneuver to not curse. Only so many words to rhyme without pandering to the lowest common denominator. Doesn't Damian know that you can include Jesus in your rap-cronym and still spit reprehensible bars? Only God can judge you Dame DOLLA, and as long as the beat is bumping I am sure our Lord and Savior can overlook a questionable barb about fucking before marriage or using his name in vain.
