50 Cent & Lil Wayne To Serve As Nba All-star Celebrity Game Assistant Coaches

Weezy and T-Pain will also perform during All-Star weekend in Indianapolis.

50 Cent and Lil Wayne after Mayweather Jr. defeats Miguel Cotto by unanimous decision in their WBA super welterweight title fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 5, 2012 in Las Vegas.

50 Cent and Lil Wayne have been mentoring rappers for decades, and now, they’ll exchange a microphone for a basketball and put their hoops knowledge to the test.

The pair of hip-hop icons will line up on opposing sidelines, as the NBA announced on Wednesday (Feb. 7) that they’ll serve as assistant coaches in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game.

Kicking off NBA All-Star weekend, the Celebrity Game is set for next Friday (Feb. 16) at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN, when the Association will take over Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium.

50 will be coaching Team Shannon, which is led by NFL legends Shannon Sharpe and Peyton Manning. Weezy is slated to assist ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith and WNBA superstar A’ja Wilson.

“I’m coaching, you know my team is gonna win. @liltunechi is probably gonna get high and not show up ! LOL,” 50 joked in his Instagram caption, while fans voiced their hopes he’ll be mic’d up for the game.

Participants in the Celebrity Game include streamer Kai Cenat, SiR, Anuel AA, Metta World Peace, Dallas Cowboys superstar Micah Parsons, actor Quincy Isaiah, Houston Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud and more.

Lil Wayne will be on double duty, as he’ll be taking the stage during All-Star weekend, which will be filled with performances from Weezy, T-Pain, Zedd and Keith Urban as part of the NBA Crossover Concert Series.

LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Nikola Jokic and more NBA stars are coming to Indiana for the main event, where the NBA All-Star Game tips off Sunday, Feb. 18.

The league has enlisted Babyface to sing the national anthem prior to the ASG, while Jennifer Hudson will provide entertainment as the halftime performer.
