Waka Flocka Flame, Pusha T and Soulja Boy are just some of the rappers that will in Atlantic City, New Jersey over the weekend to shoot hoops for a good cause.

As a result of the recent, violent acts involving guns in the tri-state area, founder of the legendary Rucker Park Tournament Greg Marius and colleagues have announced the partnership with the political forces of A.C. to host the First Annual Just Cause – Celebrity All Star Weekend, from September 23-25.

Along with Waka, Pusha, and SB, many more are scheduled to help address the gang and gun violence across the tri-state including Floyd Mayweather, Allen Iverson, Cali Swag District and Jae Millz, among others.

Atlantic City councilperson Frank Gilliam stated: “This game is an excellent opportunity to merge both sports and entertainment as an outlet to reach the youth. This weekend is a chance to show them individuals that came from their same background doing something positive and concerned about their well being”.

Activities for the Celebrity All Star Weekend, sponsored by McDonalds, Harrod’s and the Chelses Hotel, include an opening ceremony dinner and social hour, a basketball clinic, games and prize packs for children, a community park day that will exhibit local talents, and the main event – the celebrity basketball game, which will be followed up by an exclusive after party.
