J. Cole & Meek Mill Set To Perform At The 2019 NBA All-Star Game
J. Cole has been on a roll since last year when he touched down with KOD. Since then he has slaughtered a plethora of features and orchestrated the meeting of the minds last month for Dreamville’s Revenge Of The Dreams III. He also dropped the scorcher “Middle Child” last week. The hot streak will continue for Cole, as the NBA just announced that the Dreamville boss is set to headline the All-Star Halftime show this year.
The All-Star game will take place in Charlotte, North Carolina on February 17. Cole famously set up a basketball-themed narrative for his mixtapes The Warm Up and Friday Night Lights. He kept the theme going for his debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story. Now, Cole’s passion for basketball will collide with the biggest event in the NBA prior to the Finals. Meek Mill will also perform for the introduction of the All-Star teams. Anthony Hamilton, a native of Charlotte, will perform the national anthem while Carly Rae Jepsen will be performing the Canadian national anthem.
LeBron James is the captain for the West, while Giannis Antetokounmpo will lead the East. The remainder of the Western All-Stars starting line up includes James Harden, Steph Curry, Paul George, and Kevin Durant. For the East, Kyrie Irving, Kemba Walker, Joel Embiid, and Kawhi Leonard will join the Greek Freak. The All-Star Game draft (for the remaining rosters) will be televised live on TNT February 7 at 7 PM ET.
