Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard is pretty fucking talented, guys.
While he had an absolute gripe to pick for not being selected to his third All-Star Game this year—the dude is sixth in both points and assists per game in the NBA—he didn’t seem to sit around and let All-Star Weekend in Toronto get him down. In fact, he did the opposite, dropping a fucking banger of a track entitled “The Sleep,” which was produced by Jahlil Beats.
Take a listen:
Lillard has shown his hip hop skills before, so this isn’t anything new, but “The Sleep” almost seems like a giant fuck you to the NBA for still not getting the respect he deserves, with favorite shot coming with the lyric: “I ain’t make the All-Stars, but I’m flu game sick/last time they count me out, what I do, Game 6?”
For those who forgot what Dame is talking about, this might refresh your memory:
Lillard might be considered a poor man’s Russell Westbrook, but it’s time to start respecting his game—on, and off, the floor.
