Portland Trail Blazers Point Guard Damian Lillard Is Looking To Release An Album

Damian Lillard may be the reigning rookie of the year, and one of the more promising point guards in the league.

But the boy got bars!

Speaking to CSNNW.com he said that he is planning to release a mixtape later this year before a full featured album.

“If my profile continues to increase, I think I can go platinum with my music. Not to knock anybody else who has done it, but I can actually rap. I have a story to tell. It’s not going to just be about basketball.

“I have more content than that. With the way I know I can get down, and the producers that I’ll align myself with, there’s no reason not to think I couldn’t go platinum. Shaq proved it’s possible.”

Shaq proved you can have a platinum album. Chris Webber proved that it could flop. Allen Iverson proved that it can get you into a lot of trouble.

Lillard does seem like he has some skills though, so maybe it will work out. I’d be curious to hear some material from him.

As long as it doesn’t come out like this… (sorry Kobe).
