In case you weren’t aware, Damian Lillard loves to be the man behind the microphone. The Weber State-product has always loved producing his own rap music, even releasing his very first album The Letter O last year. It seems his rap career can certainly gain some traction, especially with his developing relationship with Adidas, a clothing company who works closely with Kanye West.
“Definitely,” Lillard confirmed to SLAMonline when asked about a potential collaboration with Kanye West down the road. “I think with us both doing music and him obviously being who he is and also being with Adidas and having a shoe line, I think it’d be a cold collaboration if we did music together and a shoe together. That’ll be real cool to do.”
Although we have seen Kanye fluctuate in and out of the rap game when comparing his efforts to the likes of College Dropout and Late Registration, but maybe a collaboration with Lillard is still a slight possibility. Both of them being under the Adidas umbrella may lead to something great in the future, but either way, Lillard has many other talented rap artists he would also like to work with one day.
“In the future, I would like to work with more artists that I’m a fan of,” Lillard added. “A lot of the artists I work with I’m a huge fan of, so going forward that’s who I want to work with. I had Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Jamie Foxx on there. It’s the artists I listen to on my own time—Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, NaS, J. Cole.”
