The iconic group will throw the first pitch of the Miami Marlins and Colorado Rockets game that takes place that same day.
Both hip hop acts have been busy performing and working in the studio. Towards the end of last year, Busta Rhymes collaborated with Joell Ortiz and Hodgy for guest verses as well as linked up with Swizz Beats for his own single called "AAAHHHH!!!” Salt-N-Pepa performed at Alicia Keys' 2016 Black Ball and received a tribute at the 2016 VH1 Hip Hop Honors.
