Lillard, aka Dame D.O.L.L.A., previews new single featuring Lil Wayne

With NBA players starting to ramp up their preparations for the season, Damian Lillard is looking to put a bow on his offseason project.

The Trail Blazers star, also known as rapper Dame D.O.L.L.A., is set to release his new project "CONFIRMED" Oct. 6.

But before the entire album drops next month, the multi-threat entertainer gave fans a taste of what's to come with a major collaboration with rap royalty, teaming up with Lil Wayne on his lead single "Run It Up," which was previewed on "Sway in the Morning" on Wednesday.

Lillard’s debut album, “The Letter O,” was released a year ago and garnered acclaim atypical for an athlete-turned-rapper project. That album also featured a guest spot by Lil Wayne, as well as Jamie Foxx, and reached 119 on the Billboard 200.

Lil Wayne Hospitalized In Chicago After Seizures, Vegas Show Canceled

Lil Wayne suffered yet another health scare after he was found unconscious in his hotel room in Chicago over the weekend. The Young Money’s battle with epilepsy led to his hospitalization, leading to the canceling over this upcoming Las Vegas date.

TMZ reports:

Lil Wayne was hospitalized yet again this weekend for his ongoing bout with epilepsy and the seizures that come with it, TMZ has learned, and this time it might have torpedoed Sunday night’s Vegas gig.

Multiple sources tell us Wayne was hospitalized Sunday in Chicago after he was found unconscious in his hotel room at the Westin on Michigan Avenue after suffering at least one seizure.

He was rushed to Northwestern Memorial, where we’re told he suffered yet another seizure. Our sources say his team tried to have him discharged late Sunday afternoon so he could make it to his Vegas show.

However, doctors advised against the discharge, saying he should be grounded for a few days. Wayne has suffered seizures while flying before, and the doctors felt it was too risky. He very well may still be at the hospital.

The New Orleans rap superstar has been hospitalized for seizures in times past with many speculating the Weezy’s partying lifestyle had much to do with it but he denied that rumor last year. Whatever the case, let’s hope the Young Moolah boss recovers quickly.
