Gibson: Blazers G Damian Lillard Raps 20 Bars In Interview

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard recites some of his rap lyrics in an interview.

Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard tells Matt Gibson of Dime Magazine that he can rap and then proceeds to recite 20 bars to prove it.

"I built a reputation on living right with some decency,
cold days got me ready, never been an easy street.
Giving good ---- and offering a change of scenery,
self made- boy I operate machinery.

Shinin' ain't a thing, I'd rather be a secret,
got a whole lot of bread and still they saying I'm the cheapest.
Wanted to be a millionaire but I ain't find Regis,
now I'm here to shake the game up and ‘bout to cause seizures.

Hella flight miles and it's business class only,
the business that I'm in is rich and still it's mad phony.
Watching out for all the snakes, I'm seeing world class Kobes,
rising to the top and my vert looking like a 40.

Money come with dirt, success come with hurt,
this ---- supply and demand, I give a smurk for what it's worth.
Trips out the country, my passports stamped up,
real dudes with me, when I made it they was amped up.

Really flex my muscle that's how ------ getting cramped up,
but when the pressure on I come up big, I'm a champ bruh.
Stupid how I shine bright, spring it to the limelight,
and all my bars is what these dudes need like a Klondike."

Perhaps former Blazers guard Brandon Roy can make a cameo in Lillard's first video. Or, maybe Dave can set up some sort of duet.

PS Thanks to @raja_cholan for the fix.
