With the Blazers season over, Damian Lillard is back in the studio. Last summer, Dame put out some serious heat and solidified himself as a real rapper and it appears as if he is ready to take things to another level this year.
Check out his latest track “Talk To Em” in which the Oakland-native absolutely goes off. According to TMZ, Lillard has been approached by many major labels about signing with them.
There’s a war over Damian Lillard … with several “major” record labels vying to sign the NBA star to a serious rap deal, this according to his agent.
Lillard’s already established himself as one of the best (if not THE best) rapper in the NBA — and famously started the 4-bar Friday freestyle rap challenge on social media. He’s also racked up more than 4.5 million plays on his SoundCloud page.
Now, the record labels want a piece of the action — with his agent, Aaron Goodwin, telling TMZ Sports they’ve been approached by “several major labels” … though he wouldn’t specify which ones. Goodwin says Lillard is interested — but doesn’t want go down that road until after the NBA season is over.
“We’ve put it on hold until the summer,” Goodwin says … “We will explore those options versus starting his own label. A distribution partner is really what’s needed.”
