He just dropped a new song, but NBA superstar Damian Lillard says there’s a lot more to come — ’cause he’s planning on dropping his very own ALBUM in the very near future … TMZ Sports has learned.
The Portland Trailblazers guard is widely considered the best rapper in the league — and famously created “#4BarFriday” — which became a freestyle hip-hop phenomenon on social media.
In fact, he put out a song called “Soldier in the Game” on Monday — and we’re told it’s just a taste of what he’s got cooking in the studio.
Dame tells us he’s been working on a solo project — and is hoping to release it very soon.
“It’s definitely in the works. Rap is another passion of mine.”
Don’t worry Portland — Dame says his primary focus is still BASKETBALL … and his rap career doesn’t get in the way of his training.
“I spend 80% of time thinking about and working on basketball things. A percentage of what’s left goes into me expressing my story through music.”
