Since he made his NBA debut in 2012, Damian Lillard has been open about his interest in rap music. He started the Instagram hashtag #4BarFriday a few years ago, and has released various songs online in the last year under the name Dame DOLLA (which stands for “Different on Levels the Lord Allows”).
On Monday, TNT premiered his new video “Bigger Than Us” during their pregame special for their Martin Luther King, Jr. Day broadcast of the Cavs-Warriors game. It’s an appropriate video for the occasion, with footage of Ferguson protesters intercut with Lillard in the studio. Watch it above.
