The unbreakable bond between basketball and hip-hop hit a fever pitch on Saturday night in advance of the NBA All-Star game today at 8 pm, from Philips Arena in Atlanta (Team LeBron vs.Team Durant).
The dynamic duo of Quavo and Jack Harlow defeated 2 Chainz and Lil Baby in the inaugural NBA All-Star 2v2 celebrity game.
After the win, the rap and rock stars were presented with a banner to commemorate their victory, and it prompted quite an emphatic reaction from Quavo.
“WE DID IT FOR THE NORTH”

Quavo, a former,multi-sport athlete in HS, is widely credited as currently being the best rapper to grace the hardwood.
The former Migos member, who was awarded MVP of the 2018 All-Star Celebrity Game, had another epic performance on Saturday in the 2v2 match.
He dropped 17 points, 14 rebounds, and four blocks as he led his team to a dominant 21-7 win in the B/R OpenRun game against Lil Baby and 2 Chainz.
2 Chainz, to his credit, flashed some nice ball-handling skills and had some offensive punch. Lil Baby’s lackluster play garnered him some flack from Twitter. The music-moving orator has never been criticized to this extent in his role as a rising rap star, and that was after Lil Baby was talking greasy to Harlow.
Aside from the banner immortalizing the victory, Quavo and Harlow have also won themselves 500K, which will be donated to an HBCU of their choice.
Now that’s making your skills and celebrity work for you.
