Damian Lillard continues to assert himself as the most accomplished host to ever play in the NBA.
Lillard, under her music pseudonym Dame DOLLA, released their highly anticipated fourth studio album on Friday, Different on the levels that the Lord has allowed.
The Trail Blazers superstar started teasing his latest music project earlier this summer. On August 5, he released a full music video for “The Juice,” the opening track for Different on the levels that the Lord has allowed with Jane Handcock.
Lillard’s latest album is his most starred yet. The 12-track set includes features like longtime collaborator Lil ‘Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Q-Tip, Raphael Saadiq, and Blxst, among others.
The album is littered with references to Lillard’s family and friends and her beloved hometown of Oakland, as well as the attributes and luxuries of success. Although Different on the levels that the Lord has allowed full of NBA-centric rhymes, a few retired basketball luminaries receive special mention.
“Him Duncan,” the seventh song on the album, is a play named after five-time NBA champion San Antonio Spurs icon Tim Duncan. The album’s penultimate track, “Kobe,” a tribute to the late Los Angeles Lakers legend and her daughter, Gigi, starring Snoop Dogg and Derrick Milano, first appeared on the tracklist of NBA 2K21.
Different on the levels that the Lord has allowed is Lillard’s second album produced through her label, Front Page Music, after 2019 Large DOLLA Lillard releases his first album, The letter O, in 2016, and dropped out Confirmed one year later.
