Kodak Black Added to Master P’s Celebrity Basketball Game in New Orleans
Kodak Black is focusing on reinventing himself as a bigger artist and better person, and it looks like he may be out to prove he also has some skills on the basketball courts. The "Tunnel Vision" rapper is joining the lineup of Master P's celebrity basketball game taking place in New Orleans tomorrow (June 29) before the 2017 Essence Festival this weekend.
Kodak will be joining the already star-studded lineup on the court at the Xavier University Convocation Center, who are all playing to benefit Master P's Team Hope NOLA organization and their scholarship fund for the youth of New Orleans.
So far, the rest of the superstar lineup includes Juvenile, Curren$y, Romeo, Trey Songz, Silkk The Shocker, Ray J, Terrence J, Trombone Shorty, Doug E. Fresh, Mystikal, Anthony Mackie, Raymond Brothers, Kidd Kidd, Scrappy, Jacoby Jones, Yung Joc, and former NBA ballers Robert Pack, Caron Butler and Ben Gordon. The game is being sponsored by Coca-Cola.
Not only is Kodak Black playing in the celebrity game, but he's also currently being mentored and taking part in business endeavors with the No Limit CEO. The Florida native is also planning to give back to the inner city youth by helping other kids with his real life testimony.
"Nobody's perfect, I'm a work in progress myself. I got a second chance and I want to help inner city kids," Kodak said in a statement.
