The 2019 NBA All-Star Game will take place at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina on February 17 with a star-studded line of performers providing musical entertainment during the upcoming game.

Cole follows N.E.R.D, who headlined last year's All-Star Game alongside Migos. The Dreamville Records founder recently released a standalone single entitled "Middle Game", which was believed to be a diss track aimed at longtime nemesis Kanye West and Pusha T. Cole has also been working on his sixth studio album, though the title has not been confirmed.
Last year, the rapper indicated that he had been putting in work on both "The Fall Off" album and his Kill Edward project, but he didn't specify which project would serve as the follow-up to "KOD". For your information, Kill Edward is Cole's alter ego who is featured on "KOD" tracks "The Cut Off" and "Friends".
