Dame DOLLA, Saweetie and Chance The Rapper title the soundtrack of “Space Jam: A New Legacy”
The soundtrack of “Space Jam: A New Legacy” sees the soundtrack from the movie OG Seal, Quad City DJ’s, Busta Rhymes and Coolio and student Chance The Rapper, Lil Uzi Vert, Saweetie, John Legend, the Jonas Brothers and a Dame DOLLA, aka Damian Lillard, star of the Portland Trail Blazers.
The soundtrack of the highly anticipated new film and its much-acclaimed predecessor have one thing in common – aside from artist Salt-N-Pepa, who appears on both albums – and that is the desire to be legendary.
“We knew that with the soundtrack of it, the whole idea of making a soundtrack for this generation, but still having that melting pot, was something we all really wanted,” Spencer Beighley, director of the film at LeBron’s production company James SpringHill, said in an article for Billboard.
It wouldn’t be unfair to say that the new soundtrack has a bigger legacy to uphold than the new movie. As someone who is always irrationally aroused upon hearing the words “this is your chance, do your dance”, it’s good to know that Beighley understands the gravity of the situation.
Dame DOLLA, who plays Chronos in the film, is the only actor (and athlete) to also appear on the album with the original song “About That Time” with G-Eazy, P-Lo and White Dave. While news that Lillard has an important role in the film was first announced in May, it wasn’t until June 17 that Dame Time took to Twitter to share that he would also be on the album.
🪐 I have already told you that I am in the movie, but I am also delighted to announce that I will be on the @spacejammovie soundtrack. I have a track with @G_Eazy, @PLO and @white_dave called “About this time.”

It’s no surprise to anyone familiar with Lillard’s music that the hoops star would do both. Lillard has gained respect in the hip-hop world as a socially conscious lyricist like Dame DOLLA, which stands for Different On Levels the Lord Allows. He has recorded songs with some of the biggest names in the music industry including Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz and Jamie Foxx. He also played with Wayne on the NBA All-Star Weekend in 2020. Last year, in the NBA playoff bubble, Lillard spent time scouting when he was not busy with. basketball, transforming part of his suite at Walt Disney World Resorts into a mini recording studio.
“Where I’m from, if you have it, they’re trying to take things. I was narrowing the circle before the cake came,” DOLLA raps on the new track – which you can listen to, along with the rest of the song. soundtrack, here:
