Although the 2019 NBA All-Star Weekend is a huge weekend for sports, it’s also an annual event that’s celebrated by the hip-hop community. This year, the NBA brought their annual weekend festivities to J. Cole’s home state of North Carolina. The rapper is slated to perform at the halftime show during the All-Star game, the NBA tapped Meek Mill to open up the show.

Meek Mill kicked off the NBA All-Star game with a high-energy performance. The rapper, who was draped up in a massive yellow jacket while surrounded by several back-up dancers, delivered a medley of some of his hottest tracks. The rapper started off with the Championships “Intro” before jumping into his top 10 single featuring Drake, “Going Bad,” which he recently released visuals for. Afterward, the rapper jumped into “Uptown Vibes.” 

The rapper left the stage for the 2019 All-Star game introduction for Team Giannis. The players were introduced with instrumentals of Meek’s biggest records played in the background. Meek later made his way back to the stage to perform the second half of the Dreams & Nightmares  “Intro” before the introductions for Team Lebron.

Meek’s relationship with the NBA is much deeper than the game of basketball. The rapper received a massive amount of support from the NBA while he was incarcerated especially from 76ers players.
