New Orleans, LA

With NBA All-Star Weekend having taken place in New Orleans this year, the star-studded weekend, which ran from February 17-19, was one filled with several Hip Hop highlights.

One of grandest moments was an impromptu reunion between the Hot Boys, the New Orleans-based group comprised of Lil Wayne, Juvenile, B.G. and Turk.

B.G. was absent from the meetup due to his current incarceration, but the other three members did welcome Mannie Fresh during their onstage reunion.



Prior to gracing the stage with their performance, the Hot Boys received a gracious welcome from LeBron James, who served as host for the BeatsXNOLA event and doted on growing up on the music of Hot Boys.

“I don’t know that these people fully appreciate what’s going on tonight,” James said. “We got mothafuckin Hot Boys in this mothafucka right now. I got to make sure—because this is my party—I got to make sure that people fully understand what’s going on tonight…I grew up on these boys right here.”
