NBA All-Star Weekend is getting closer. Fans are eagerly waiting. Hip Hop culture will want to show its power and influence in the NBA, as in all festivals. On February 16, DJ Khaled said he would be interested in State Farm All-Star Saturday Night performances and would bring some famous friends with him.
According to the press release, DJ Khaled will perform with Gunna, Lil Baby, Lil Wayne, Ludacris, Mary J. Blige and Migos just before the AT&T Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday, February 19th.
Hip Hop reps will be sharing the event with other A-List artists that weekend, so they will do anything to raise the level.
On Sunday, February 20, the NBA will hold a special halftime presentation celebrating its 75th anniversary, the players who defined and shaped the NBA in those years. Usher, Spike Lee, Tiffany Haddish and Anthony Anderson will serve as narrators. Earth, Wind & Fire, a nine-time Grammy Award-winning group, will be performing their hit “Shining Star” to close the celebration.
Also, R&B and soul legend Macy Gray will sing the United States national anthem at the All-Star Game. The State Farm All-Star Saturday Night festivities will begin at 8 PM. ET, the 71st NBA All-Star Game will be broadcast simultaneously, both on TNT. Millions of viewers, who will be on both State Farm and their screens, will watch an amazing show.
Dj Khaled Was at Miami Heat Practice
He didn’t neglect to show off some basketball skills before setting up the fun for NBA All-Star Saturday Night with an Instagram clip. DJ Khaled tried to play at the Miami Heat training facility and knocked down a jumper from the three-point zone.
“Call me MJ, they call me MJ,” he repeated after drilling the three-ball. “Love to D-Book, but they call me MJ. NBA 75, make sure you get the walk-off.”
