From Ashanti to Snoop Dogg, there were plenty of star sightings on and off the court at the 2014 NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans on Sunday. Drake, Diddy, Ludacris, Kendrick Lamar, 2 Chainz, and Busta Rhymes piled into the Smoothie King Center to watch the East claim victory over the West.

After participating in the Sprite Slam Dunk contest on Saturday, October’s Very Own showed his hometown pride by singing along to the Canadian National Anthem. Rocking black Timberlands and a leather jacket, he traded photos and jokes with About Last Night star Kevin Hart.

“@kevinhart4real has so much food under his seat it’s almost weird,” tweeted Drizzy.

Fresh off his performance at All-Star Saturday Night, Kendrick kicked back and watched Pharrell and Janelle Monáe entertain the crowd.

2 Chainz, sporting his own “2 G.O.O.D. 2 Be T.R.U.” adidas high-tops, enjoyed courtside shots with Drake, Kevin Hart, and Diddy.

The Bad Boy mogul brought his sons Quincy and Christian, while Ludacris and his girlfriend Eudoxie made it a date.

He has launched his own limited edition sneaker with adidas and is readying the next chapter in his B.O.A.T.S. series, B.O.A.T.S. III.

B.O.A.T.S. is like a real healthy timeline of Tity Boy [or] 2 Chainz,” he told MTV News. “When I say, ‘I started from the trap, now I rap,’ it’s basically that.”

His tour with Pusha T and August Alsina continues through March with stops in Chicago, L.A., Miami, and Houston.

2 Chainz Gives Back for the Holidays

2 Chainz

2 Chainz is sharing his good fortune with others. The “Feds Watching” rapper spent Christmas giving back to his community. In his latest vlog, entitled “Give the Way That You Receive,” he spreads some holiday cheer at his annual toy giveaway.

In partnership with his T.R.U. Foundation, he hosted a basketball tournament at his old high school and his annual charity concert, where he collected toys. He then loaded a U-Haul with the toys and passed them out to young kids in the College Park Projects.

“My work ethic is due to the fact that I lost my pops,” said 2 Chainz, whose father passed away on Christmas Day. “I don’t like to sit around, be stagnant, doing nothing, wasting talent that God gave me, so I had to keep going before I start daydreaming and thinking about my pops.”

On February 4, 2 Chainz will kick off his “2 Good to Be T.R.U. Tour” in Boston with supporting acts Pusha T and August Alsina.
