In the slog of the NBA offseason, Damian Lillard doesn't miss a beat.   

The Portland Trail Blazers point guard released a 10-track album titled Big D.O.L.L.A. late Thursday night. Lillard's artist name is Dame D.O.L.L.A.

Previously, the 29-year-old All-Star has released albums titled The Letter O (2016) and Confirmed (2017). In late June, Lillard engaged in a brief rap beef with Sacramento Kings forward Marvin Bagley III.

Bagley had said on ESPN's First Take that he was the best rapper in the NBA. When asked by Max Kellerman if he would battle Lillard, Bagley responded, "Yeah, for sure." He then uploaded a track to SoundCloud called "No Debate."

Lillard responded soon after with a not-so-subtle clap-back titled "MARVINNNNNN???" The song begins with Lillard laughing and calling Bagley's bars "amateur." 

Plenty of others in and around the NBA, including Portland teammates C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic, have shown Lillard support on his new album:

Lillard is focused on something bigger as hip-hop stars such as Lil Wayne and Jeremih are featured throughout the project. 

On the lead track titled "Sorry" that features Lil Wayne, Lillard raps in the first verse, "Humble, but sorry not sorry." 

Big D.O.L.L.A. can be listened to in full on all musical platforms.
