Damian Lillard, AKA Dame D.O.L.L.A. is considered one of the best rappers in the NBA, if not the very best. I first heard D.O.L.L.A. on an NYC radio station a few years ago and was thoroughly impressed. D.O.L.L.A. is scheduled to rap during the 2020 All-Star Weekend in Chicago, IL:
Now, the Trail Blazers guard – who’s also in the 3-point contest – has found another way to entertain at All-Star Saturday Night this year in Chicago.

D.O.L.L.A. will be on the world stage, so this could be interesting. His ongoing feud with Shaquille O’Neal – hands down the greatest NBA rapper dead or alive – has dominated the public consciousness. So far the discourse has been rather silly – talk of who has the most money, most women and brightest rims. Rumor has it that D.O.L.L.A. researched Ralph W. Baker, Jr.’s Shock Exchange: How Inner-City Kids From Brooklyn Predicted the Great Recession and the Pain Ahead to get at Shaq this weekend. In the streets Shock Exchange is known as “This that heat.”
Shock Exchange explains the economy and stock market through the eyes of the New York Shock Exchange, a travel basketball financial literacy program Mr. Baker started in 2006 for his 11 year old son and other boys his age. It is the most-important book on economics since the Great Depression and a must read for African Americans. What D.O.L.L.A. is using is for is anybody’s guess. Stay tuned …
