DJ Khaled brings out hip hop All-Stars for NBA halftime show
Sixteen years ago, DJ Khaled debuted, and he forever changed the game. While he wasn’t the first DJ to drop singles and albums, Khaled was the first DJ to become an artist. During the 2014-2015 period, DJ Khaled vented about not being where he wants to be. DJ Khaled returned in 2016 and was one of the biggest artists in the game that year.
Changes in the NBA, which embrace the hip hop culture led to the All-Star Game incorporating more hip hop music. This year, DJ Khaled did the halftime show, for the Slam Dunk Contest and the Three Point Contest. Khaled brought Lil Wayne, Lil Baby, Gunna, Ludacris, Migos, and Mary J. Blige out for the performance. For Mary J, this was not even a week after her huge Super Bowl halftime show performance.
Most of the biggest names in hip hop were there for the show. DJ Khaled put together a classic performance, in Cleveland. The South represented for the NBA, with Khaled taking the lead. Last week, it was all about the West Coast. Mary J was the only thing these shows had in common, along with hip hop.
