As ice-cold as he is running the point for the Portland Trailblazers, Damian Lillard brings the heat off the court each time he steps into the booth as Dame D.O.L.L.A. With three studio albums and some Shaquille O'Neal diss tracks under his belt, Lillard has now joined Nardwuar the Human Serviette for a new interview. 

Getting together over a video call, Nardwuar speaks with Lillard about his rise through the basketball world, rap in Portland and his native Oakland, the Vancouver Grizzlies and plenty more. At one point, Lillard also revealed that he and Shaq put their diss records on the shelf to work on a new song together in quarantine.

Gifts for Lillard include a 3-LP set of Malcolm X speeches, Mac Dre and Biggie bobbleheads, a "Shaq Attack" action figure, and 1994 compilation B-Ball's Best Kept Secret, which features songs recorded by NBA players including Gary Payton, Jason Kidd, Dennis Scott and more.

Not unlike his recent interview with Westside Gunn, Nardwuar is using the sit-down to raise funds for good, donating to national non-profit Black Women's Health Imperative. You can make a donation through the links present on the YouTube page.
