A newly wedded couple in Portland, OR received a more-than-pleasant surprise from an NBA star during their special ceremony. On Wednesday (Sept. 6), TMZ shared a video that showed Damian Lillard crashing the nuptials between Jay and Kelly Virdee, which reportedly took place during Labor Day weekend. In addition, the Trail Blazers point guard performed music for the crowd, a quick reminder of his success as a recording artist who goes by the moniker Dame D.O.L.L.A.

As the outlet explained, the moment was possible thanks to a Los Angeles-based rapper named Dreebo, who collaborated with Lillard in the past. Jay also grew up in the Bay Area — where Lillard is from — before moving to the City of Roses.

Back in 2016, the seven-time All-Star liberated his debut LP, The Letter O, a star-studded effort with collaborations alongside Marsha Ambrosius, Jamie Foxx, Juvenile, Lil Wayne, Raphael Saadiq, and more. He followed that with 2017’s Confirmed and 2019’s Big D.O.L.L.A., both of which landed within the top 20 of Billboard‘s Independent Albums chart. His most recent album, Different On Levels The Lord Allowed, arrived in 2021 with appearances from the likes of Lil Wayne, Mozzy, Blxst, Q-Tip, and Snoop Dogg.

In an interview with REVOLT, Lillard spoke on how being an emcee serves as an escape from the hoopla that takes place in his professional sports career. “When you focus on basketball, what the media’s saying, winning and losing, playing well and not playing well, it can be a lot,” he said. “It helps give me something else to have my mind [on], something else to feel good about.”

He also spoke on how important his hometown is to him. “Oakland means everything to me. I learned so much from Oakland, it’s where I grew up. My most traumatic and best experiences were in Oakland. It’s a big part of who I am. Why I’ve become who I’ve become,” he explained.
