He’s got a long way to go before he catches up to Iman Shumpert, but Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is trying to make a name for himself as a rapper.
After years of talking about releasing a mixtape, Lillard dropped his first full-length rap song on Soundcloud on Monday, called “Soldier in the Game.”
Lillard has been dropping little 15-second verses on Instagram since he was a rookie, starting a trend called “#4BarFriday.”
“It’s something that comes easy to me,” Lillard told CSNNW in 2014. “It’s another talent that I have.”
Now he’s got some fresh lyrics to put on his next pair of shoes.
