During this weekend's All-Star festivities in Los Angeles, international sneaker giant Adidas will put on a stacked celebrity basketball game, with Snoop Dogg's 'West Coast' team hosting 2 Chainz' 'East Coast' team.

It will be the tentpole event of the activities at Adidas' curated brand experience, named "747 Warehouse St.: An Event in Basketball Culture."

N.E.R.D. is scheduled to headline as lead musical act.

On February 16 and 17, Adidas will take over 747 Warehouse Street to create a series of fully immersive experiences that will "inspire creators to shape the future of the game whether it be through fashion, music or sport."
