D.O.L.L.A. gonna make you holla. Big Game Dame on center court. We could continue with these rather weak references all day long. Alas, we won’t.

Portland Trail Blazers star guard Damian Lillard is set to perform in concert during 2020 NBA All-Star Game festivities in Chicago.

This is not a drill.

A native of Oakland, Lillard (aka D.O.L.L.A.) is known for his mad hip-hop chops. Heck, he’s gotten into rap wars, “8 Mile” style, with fellow NBA players in the past.

No word yet on whether Chicago-based hip-hop artists Chance the Rapper and Kanye West will join Lillard on stage.
