NBA All-Star Weekend goes down February 13 to February 16, and Hip-Hop will be making it presence felt in New Orleans and at the game. Today (February 6), the NBA announced its line up of musical acts and they include the red hot Pharrell Williams and Kendrick Lamar.

Williams will be performing during the player introductions during the All-Star game on Sunday, Feb 16., while Lamar will headline All-Star Saturday by rocking the mic right before the Sprite Slam Dunk contest.

Reports Billboard:

The NBA has unveiled the list of headlining musical artists at its All-Star Weekend in New Orleans later this month, with Pharrell Williams continuing his hot streak by headlining the Entertainment Series presented by Sean John at Macy’s. The NBA All-Star Game will take place at New Orleans Arena on Feb. 16.

Pharrell, whose solo hit “Happy” enters the Top 10 of the Hot 100 this week, will perform during the player introductions, and will be bringing out some special guests. The producer scored two of last summer’s biggest hits with Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” and Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky,” and has also been confirmed to perform “Happy” at the upcoming Academy Awards.

Other performers throughout All-Star weekend include Earth Wind & Fire, Gary Clark, Jr., Janelle Monae and more.
