Finally, the people of Ferguson, MO will be able to take their minds off police brutality for a moment, and enjoy a day of watching some famous musicians, actors, and athletes showcase their basketball skills.
Hip-Hop promoter and rapper Loose Cannon S.L.I.M visited Ferguson on Saturday as hundreds of people were waiting in line to get tickets for the 4th Annual Celebrity Basketball Game. He surprised the crowd by handing out more than two-hundred free tickets to the local residents, which would ordinarily have cost anywhere from $29 to $125.
S.L.I.M. will be bringing with him Young Money, including Lil’ Wayne to the Chafitz Arena in St. Louis for the game. Other stars include Rapper Kirko Bagz, producer/reality TV Star Stevie J, and Michael Vick. But the person we’re most exited to see is NBA Legend Allen Iverson.
The event, organized by Headliner Market Group, is being billed as LooseCannon vs. Young Money, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated.
