The NBA All-Star weekend is one of the most star-studded celebrity events every year. One of the events that takes place on All-Star Saturday Night is the celebrity basketball game. Hip-Hop will have great representation in Common and J.Cole announcing that they’ll be participating in this year’s competition.
Neither artist is a stranger to the hardwood, as Common’s played a New Jersey Nets point guard named “Scott McKnight” in the 2010 romantic comedy Just Wright, while Cole’s reminisced on his playing days throughout his mixtapes. Cole also shot the visual for his platinum single “Work Out” on the blacktop.
NBA All-Star Weekend kicks off February 24th.
