Rich Homie Quan, who rocketed to international fame off such hits as “Lifestyle” and “Ain’t About the Money,” will perform at the Atlanta Hawks home opener on October 27 against the Detroit Pistons.
Quan told his fans “I will be there to sing my latest single, ‘Flex,’ so make sure you’re there,” says the rapper in a video to fans.
The Hawks have enlisted the talents of hip hop and R&B stars frequently the last few years. Ludacris was the last artist to perform at Philips Arena
The young rapper adds, “The Hawks have made Oct. 27 a can’t-miss event and I’m super excited to be the headline performer,” said Rich Homie Quan. “I think it’s great how the Hawks combine music and sports to give Atlanta fans a unique entertainment experience, and I can’t wait to hit the floor on Opening Night when we take on the Pistons.”
Rich Homie Quan will perform thrice — before tip-off, at halftime and when the game has concluded.
“We remain committed to bringing our fans an experience unlike any other in the NBA,” says Hawks CEO Steve Koonin. “Partnering with Rich Homie Quan to bring more hometown energy into our building is exciting, and another example of our promise to stay ‘True to Atlanta.’”
Arena doors will open at 6 p.m. for the contest, scheduled to tip off at 8 p.m.
