Los Angeles Clippers star Lou Williams is balling this year, averaging 19.5 points — off the bench! However, even while helping his team boast a 37-18 record going into the 2020 NBA All-Star Weekend, the three-time 6th Man of the Year found time to grind in the studio and the end result is his Syx Piece EP.
The six-song project owes its clever titling to the newest member of his household: a baby boy. One track, “Underground Goat,” features vocals from fellow NBA player Evan Turner while another, “24,” is a self-explanatory Kobe Bryant tribute.
“I just wanted to write an open letter to a dear friend of mine,” he told Complex about the emotional record.
