Both performances from the 2015 NBA All-Star Game have began with pop and ended with hip-hop. Before the game, we saw Christina Aguilera bring out Nas for an Illmatic "N.Y. State of Mind" performance, which you can watch here.
The NBA All-Star game has shown a concerted effort to honor its host city this year. Before tonight's game, Christina Aguilera started things off with a Big Apple-themed intro, performing a cover of Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York."
The NBA All-Star Weekend 2014 goes down later this month in New Orleans. Every year the weekend sees the biggest and brightest rappers and ballers come out, whether it be to perform or simply to party.
