Besides Tupac and Notorious BIG, the Blazers star also referred to Muhammad Ali and Tommie Smith in his video. There are also clear characterizations of a few historical figures in Atlas and Adam. Obviously, the song’s title is an ode to one of San Antonio Spurs legend Tim Duncan’s all-time greatest players.
Dame DOLLA is widely regarded as the best rapper in the NBA. He’s taking things to another level with his latest studio album, and it looks like he’s trying to make his way into some of the best rappers in the business, whether as an NBA player or otherwise.
