Quavo wore the sneakers as part of his uniform before heading on court and playing for Team Stephen A. during the 2020 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game Saturday. The rapper’s former collaborator Chance The Rapper served as team captain, but they couldn’t beat the home team, Team Wilbon. Headed by their captain, rapper Common, the team went on to beat the away players 62-47 at Wintrust Arena in Chicago.
Despite Quavo's status as a hit-making rapper, he isn't a stranger to basketball. He scored 19 points during the 2018 Celebrity All-Star Game and was named the MVP. Last year, Quavo told Business Insider he grew up playing basketball, but was led to a rap career.
“I played in and I'm a student of the game. I love the game. I'm from the game. The game been taken away from me due to decisions I made in the streets, the decisions I made in life, and I chose another route in rapping,” he said.
