Future, Rick Ross, 50 Cent, Lil Baby, Young Thug and many more are lined up to perform in Atlanta for the NBA All-Star Weekend.
Though the Coronavirus pandemic has made it difficult for musicians to ply their trade in a live concert setting, some rappers have decided to move forward unimpeded by the threat, provided the state allows for open venues. And with Atlanta currently slated to host the NBA All-Star Weekend and many of the accompanying festivities, a slew of parties and concerts have already been booked and scheduled. In fact, a complete list reveals that many hip-hop heavyweights are looking to get back into the game this coming weekend, a judgment call that may raise some eyebrows.
