New York City-based radio station Hot 97 will host what they’ve described as “the premier event to be at” during NBA All-Star Weekend.
Hot 97 personalities Ebro, Laura Stylez, and Peter Rosenberg will take the helm as hosts for the one-day event, which will take place at the Theater At Madison Square Garden.
“With such a momentous event coming to New York, HOT 97 definitely had to be a part of it,” Deon Levingston, HOT 97 General Manager said in a statement. “HOT 97’s ‘The Tip-Off’ not only brings two of Hip Hop’s legends together on one stage, but also sets the electrifying tone for basketball’s biggest weekend.”
In addition to performances from Snoop and Puff, the event will also welcome sets from Hot 97’s own DJ Camilo, DJ Enuff, and Funkmaster Flex.
Tickets for “The Tip-Off” start at $59. They are currently available for purchase on Ticketmaster.com.
NBA All-Star Weekend takes place in New York City this year. The annual celebration has welcomed a number of events hosted by Hip Hop artists in the past.
In 2010, Drake and the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James hosted an event at NBA All-Star Weekend in Dallas, Texas. And last year, along with Juvenile and Rick Ross, James was in attendance at a NBA All-Star Weekend GQ event in New Orleans, Louisiana.
