Hip-hop represented over the weekend in Atlanta for “Converse Takeover Weekend.” The first event was the Converse Tip-Off, which was held at the Georgia Freight Room Friday (Apr 30) and was attended by Jermaine Dupri, Young Money artist Shanell, model/actress Melyssa Ford and more.
The following day (Sat. May 1), rappers Cam’ron and Jim Jones put their differences aside and suited up as “The Jones Family” team at the Converse Band of Ballers celebrity basketball tournament at Clark Atlanta University. The pair confirmed to Miss Info that they were trying to work things out and reconcile their differences:
“Above all, me and Cam, we still brothers. And we’re building on getting back on track but first, I apologize for being a rude brother, for saying things publicly without first trying to handle them privately…”
Other celebrity bball players at the game were Jermaine Dupri (who headed the “So So Def” team) and rappers Shawty Lo (who led the “Southern Hospitality” team) and O.J. da Juiceman. O’Zone magazine founder Julia Beverly, Sirius XM Shade 45 radio personality Angela Yee and TV/radio host Kenny Burns were also spotted at the game. The final competing teams in the championship game was Jim Jones’ the Jones Family versus Shawty Lo’s Southern Hospitality team with the Jones Family taking the win with a final score of 10 to 5.
