This year’s NBA All-Star Game has finally kicked off, seeing LeBron James and his West coast teammates taking on Giannis Antetokounmpo and the East. Kicking off the big night, Philadelphia native Meek Mill took opening performance duties in Charlotte, N.C.’s Spectrum Center by performing a medley of his hits.

Mill, dressed in a massive yellow jacket and surrounded by several back-up dancers, started off with the Phil Collins-sampled “Intro” from his Championships album. From there Mill continued with the Drake-assisted “Going Bad” and “Uptown Anthem” as Team Giannis was being introduced. Afterwards Meek jumped into “Dreams and Nightmares (Intro)” as Team LeBron took their introductions.

Mill’s performance followed Anthony Hamilton’s “The Star-Spangled Banner” and Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Oh, Canada.” Keep it locked here for J. Cole’s halftime show and the final score of the NBA All-Star Game.

Last month, Meek Mill, Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, JAY-Z and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft launched their REFORM Alliance Foundation at New York City’s John Jay College which is aiming to raise awareness for criminal justice reform. Mill recently fought a two-to-four-year sentence after Philadelphia judge Genece Brinkley found him guilty of violating parole connected to a decade old gun and drug case.

For more news coming out of this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend, Adam Silver awkwardly introduced NBA’s new smart jerseys.
