Portland Trail Blazers’ Damian Lillard is a lot of things: a star player, a leader, a father, and a rapper. Jonathan Landrum, Jr. of the Associated Press reports that Lillard will continue to be making music while in the Orlando bubble. Landrum, Jr. explains that Lillard wishes to pursue a career like that of Donald Glover, also known as Childish Gambino.
“That’s the point I want to get to,” he said. “I admire him with how he’s established himself into two different lanes. People respect him in each lane. That’s my goal.”
Lillard recently dropped several tracks, including “Goat Spirit,” “Blacklist,” and the most-recent, “Home Team,” which took a look at his friendships and connections.
“They do all these things and those are the things that I’m investing in to make my people deeper and stronger,” said Lillard of his friends who have become a businessman, chef, handyman and even a farmer. “It’s not an entourage of people that hangout with me, because I’m an NBA player. It’s my strong circle.”
