Basketball season is still months away, but Dame D.O.L.L.A. is already back in the game.
Following up on 2017's Confirmed, Blazers star and noted rapper Damian Lillard announced on Twitter that he's dropping a new full length album this Friday, August 9. Titled Big D.O.L.L.A, the 10-track album once again includes features from Lil Wayne, Danny From Sobrante, and Brookfield Deuce (Lillard's cousin) and adds Mozzy, Jeremih, Marley Waters, and Derrick Milano.
Most notable: the cover photo features Lillard and his son, posing shirtless on matching (if differently sized) Bentley's.

It's been a big offseason for Lillard. Not only did he sign a 4-year, $196 million "supermax" contract extension, he was also briefly embroiled in a rap battle with fellow player-turned-rapper Marvin Bagley III of the Sacramento Kings. Bagley claimed on ESPN's First Take that he was the best rapper in the NBA—leading to follow-up diss tracks from both Bagley and Lillard. By most accounts, Lillard emerged the clear winner. Was there ever any doubt?
Big D.O.L.L.A will be available for streaming on Spotify, TIDAL, and Apple Music.
