Trail Blazer Damian Lillard’s rap lyrics get their own shoes
Portland’s Damian Lillard has long posted 15-second raps on his Instagram account with the hashtag #4barfriday. The Trail Blazer also hosted a New Orleans #4barfriday rap battle during All-Star weekend in February.
The 23-year-old Lillard recently told CSNNW.com he plans to release a mixtape later this year before dropping his first album. The point guard also felt his musical talent could match his NBA success.
"If my profile continues to increase, I think I can go platinum with my music," Lillard revealed to CSNNW.com. "Not to knock anybody else who has done it, but I can actually rap. I have a story to tell. It’s not going to just be about basketball. I have more content than that. With the way I know I can get down, and the producers that I’ll align myself with, there’s no reason not to think I couldn’t go platinum."
adidas certainly feels Lillard’s lyrics speak for themselves, posting his #4barfriday lyrics on a pair of custom-made Crazy 1 kicks:
Though anyone who wants a pair for themselves are out of luck:

Maybe these rhymes are so raw they’re not meant for public consumption.
