Today, Portland Trail Blazers point guard, 5X NBA All-Star and hip-hop artist Damian Lillard, aka Dame D.O.L.L.A., drops “Home Team,” celebrating the people that have always been by his side and remembering those who are no longer, via Empire and his label Front Page Music.
Family, friends and loyalty. “Home Team” is Dame’s pledge to remain true to his belief in “day ones over day millions.”
The visual for “Home Team” highlights the long-term roots of these relationships and what Dame’s “day ones” are currently building as entrepreneurs and pillars in the community of Portland, OR. The past to present format of the visual celebrates the strength and resilience of Black families in America, and shows never-before-seen family and childhood pictures of Dame with family and friends that are still heavily involved in his life today.
“Home Team” was directed by Dame’s cousin Brookfield Duece, co-directed by Dame himself and shot and edited by Portland filmmaker, Riley Brown. The video is dedicated to Dame’s late cousin Brandon “Chef B” Johnson, who recently passed away.
“Home Team” features Los Angeles based artist Dreebo on the hook and production from Nonstop Da Hitman.
Last month, Dame made national headlines for the release of BLACKLIST, a powerful spoken word song he wrote in the midst of the national unrest around police brutality. The song is a tribute to George Floyd and the countless black lives lost due to police brutality. Days later, Dame followed up with the release of “GOAT Spirit” featuring Grammy Award winning artist and producer Raphael Saadiq.
