Big name stars hit the hardwood in ATL this past weekend for breast cancer awareness. The first annual “Ballin’ for Boobs” event held at Morehouse College, and hosted by Love and Hip Hop: ATL’s Karlie Redd and a local radio station raised  money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Hooping it up were R. Kelly, who put in work as a coach and player, Shawty Lo, Bobby Valentino, Q Parker of R&B group 112, R.L. of R&B group Next, Wingo of R&B  group Jagged Edge, Case and 2 Chainz, who also served as a coach.

Do you think after the game they combined melodies? Just sayin…that’s a lot of R&B singers on the B-ball court, take advantage of it.

But I guess they were too winded from the game to take the mic. Singing trios Bliss and Havok Jones performed for the crowd.

The event reportedly brought out hundreds of ATL-ans, including Momma Dee of L&HHATL, and was the vision of Pamela D. Hogan and Janet Jackson of Boss Chix, an event planning company. More photos below.

Happy post-Labor Day, post-BBQ, post-no white pants allowed season. Summer is unofficially a wrap–just don’t tell Mother Nature because she’s still beaming 80° weather over our heads in the Big Apple–and what better way to give it a fond farewell than having a ludicrously philanthropic blowout by the self-proclaimed man himself.

Ludacris kicked off his 9th annual Ludaday weekend, a four day binge on charitable events benefitting the ATL community through the Ludacris Foundation, with a strike! Nope, no one was out, the “Fast & Furious” star launched a celeb bowling tournament Thursday, which attracted Neyo, Lance Goss and Rev Run’s daughter Angela Simmons.

But, the actual winner of the night was producer Lil Ronnie.

The Ludaday weekend charity tour took over Banneker High School Friday, with a health talk and improv workout at the gym. Wonder which snatched bod will look the best in their back-to- school clothes…

ludacrisgreetingcrowdThe Ludaday weekend tour bus rolled onto Georgia State University. The new Frosh and upperclassmen were treated to a block party with free food and entertainment by Bobby Shmurda. **raised eyebrows** as nice as it may have been to get Shmoney dance lessons and watch his cap get stuck in the clouds, didn’t this up-and-coming rapper just dodge a drive-by shooting?!! Just saying…y’all be safe.

Rounding out the last two days of the Ludaday weekend was a celeb b-ball game, which Larenz Tate, Dwight Howard, Bow Wow Shad Moss, and Big Tigger suited up for to take to the hardwood at GSU gym Sunday. The victor was, of course Ludacris for the game and hosting a starstudded charity event.

The winning team!!!

Sitting courtside was “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” stars  Rasheeda and Kirk, no doubt taking a break from the show’s violently explosive reunion show.

And the Pied Piper of R&B, R. Kelly, chilled with Luda backstage.
