New York City and MSG are considered the Mecca of basketball, but we all know New York is the Mecca of hip hop as well. With that said, what other better way to set this night off than with a performance from one of the greatest ever, NAS!!

Nothing like hearing “New York State of Mind” at an event that has the focus of the world right now. With the opening performance so dope, hopefully it’s a prelude to the rest of the night being amazing as well.
