Drake, LeBron James to Host All-Star Weekend Event
Young Money rapper Drake and NBA star LeBron James will co-host the NBA All-Star Weekend’s “All-Star Celebrity Experience.” The event takes place Feb. 12 at the AMPM Lounge, an upscale club in Dallas, which boasts seven party areas, 10 V.I.P. bars and two penthouse suites. The music will be provided by “four renowned DJ’s,” though the promoters have yet to disclose their names, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit LeBron James’ non-profit organization, the LeBron James Family Foundation.
This will be the third time Drake and LeBron have been co-billed; Drake previously recorded an all-star collab entitled ‘Forever’ for the Cleveland Cavalier guard’s documentary, ‘More Than a Game.’ Drake also appeared at LeBron’s 25th birthday party in Cleveland on Dec. 30.
The “All-Star Celebrity Experience” is one of a series of events scheduled around the 59th NBA All-Star Game, which tips-off on Feb. 14 at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. LeBron James is scheduled to be a starter for the East in the All-Star game, along with fellow forward Kevin Garnett, guards Dwayne Wade and Allen Iverson and center Dwight Howard. Drake’s much-anticipated debut, ‘Thank Me Later’ is scheduled to drop in March.
