Kodak Black might be one of the biggest and most successful new rappers right now, but the Pompano Beach rapper has got other talents up his sleeves. Kodak will be joining the lineup of Master P‘s forthcoming celebrity basketball game, which will take place later today (June 29) before the 2017 Essence Festival kicks off this weekend. The “Tunnel Vision” mastermind will join a stacked lineup on the court at Xavier University Convocation Center, which includes Ray J, Master P’s son Romeo, Trey Songz, Yung Joc, Mystikal, Juvenile, Curren$y, as well as NBA veterans Robert Pack, Caron Butler and Ben Gordon. Sponsored by Coca-Cola, they are playing to benefit Master P’s Team Hope NOLA organization, which has a scholarship fund to aid New Orlean’s inner city youths.
Kodak Black is also currently taking part in business initiatives with Master P and getting his hands into philanthropy and giving back to the inner city youth. In a statement, Kodak shared that he want to help inner city kids because he “got a second chance” and is “a work in progress” himself. Stay tuned for more on the basketball game and learn more about it on its official website.
