Damian Lillard PT 2: An Oakland Hero, Portland Trailblazer, SPITTER & Humanitarian

From growing up in the city of Oakland to making NBA history, Damian Lillard is back on Sway in the Morning.

After dropping the illest freestyle over the classic Dead Presidents beat, Lillard opened up about giving back to his Bay Area community and why he prefers cameras to not be around.

Interestingly enough, Dame and Sway went to the same High School — Oakland High — and had more in common than we thought.

Watch below as Dame talks about how and why he created #4BarFriday + catch up to his BARS!


Icon of hip-hop culture and a pivotal part of the MTV News team, Sway has been a staple of the music-news arena for more than a decade. From giving Eminem, Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac their very first radio airplay on his local show in the mid-’90s to providing television viewers with their first good look at some of today’s hottest celebrities in music, film, fashion and sports. Sway has been there for some of music and the world’s biggest moments.
