Portland, OR - 

Lots of basketball players rap, but Damian Lillard is taking his music career seriously.

The Portland Trail Blazers point guard, who raps under the name Dame D.O.L.L.A., will be performing a concert at Crystal Ballroom in the Oregon city next Friday — the same day as his 26th birthday. Tickets sold out for the 1,500-person venue less than 24 hours after the announcement.

The show comes after the release of his “Talk To Em” single in May. Earlier this year, Lillard dropped a video for “Bigger Than Us,” a call for social justice.

The NBA All-Star shares his passion for rap through the weekly 4Bar Friday Instagram contest where fans submit their rhymes and he posts his favorite entries.
