Chance The Rapper, DJ Khaled, Quavo and Lil Wayne Deliver Star-Studded Halftime Show At The 2020 NBA All-Star Game
Chance, a native of Chicago, where this year's NBA All-Star Game is being hosted, kicked off the halftime show with an energetic performance of "No Problem," a featured track off his 2016 GRAMMY-winning mixtape, Coloring Book. He brought out special guest and collaborator on the original track Lil Wayne, who dedicated a few lyrics to late NBA icon Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna who, along with seven others, died in a tragic accident last month (Jan. 26).
DJ Khaled and Quavo then partied onstage next to Chance, performing their collaborative track "I'm The One," featured on Khaled's 2017 album, Grateful.
The show marks another major televised performance from DJ Khaled this year. Last month at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards, the DJ/producer joined an all-star lineup, featuring John Legend, Meek Mill, Kirk Franklin, Roddy Ricch and YG, to remember late rapper and activist Nipsey Hussle, who was fatally shot last March.
Chance closed out the jam-packed halftime show with a moving tribute to Bryant. Emotionally distraught, he performed "I Was A Rock," a tribute song he originally performed in memory of late boxing legend Muhammad Ali at the 2016 ESPY Awards show, as images and videos of Bryant played on a screen behind the rapper.
The halftime show closed out the stacked musical lineup at the 2020 NBA All-Star Game and Weekend, which included performances from: Jennifer Hudson, who paid tribute to Bryant; Chaka Khan, who sang the national anthem to officially open the game; and Queen Latifah, who covered Stevie Wonder.
