Move over, Shaq: Damian Lillard A.K.A. Dame D.O.L.L.A. is the best NBA player/rapper ever. Yesterday (Oct. 11), the Trailblazers point guard shared a new song with Raphael Saadiq called "Hero."

Oakland native Lillard spits thoughtful, wordplay-filled bars throughout the nearly four-minute track. The soulful record is a part of adidas' #SongsFromScratch series. D.O.L.L.A. spreads a positive message on "Hero," kicking off his first verse by rapping, "I wanna see us all rise above that poverty line/Teach 'em how to cross the Ts, put a dot on them Is/Lot of folks fell victim high, lot of 'em die/Swallow pride to survive." Fellow Bay Area musician Saadiq handles the chorus, singing, "Everybody needs a hero."

You can listen to "Hero" above via SoundCloud. Pretty crazy that an NBA All-Star is rapping better than a lot of aspiring artists out there. In other Lillard news, adidas recently unveiled his new D Lillard 2 colorway. The adidas D Lillard 2 “Dame Time” is set is available at select adidas retailers and at for a retail price of $105.
