Last night, 9-time NBA All Star, entrepreneur and music executive, James Harden, and Spotify hosted a special charity concert event at the Bayou Music Center in Houston, TX.
The night was filled with some of the biggest names in hip-hop and sports, featuring performances and special appearances from Travis Scott, Lil Baby, Young Thug, Don Toliver, Lil Tjay, Maxo Kream, Trae Tha Truth, Monaleo, Kevin Durant, and Russell Westbrook.
All proceeds from the event went to Harden’s charity organization, 3 The Harden Way.
The event came on the heels of Harden’s takeover of Spotify’s Taste playlist – a new Hip-Hop and R&B playlist designed specifically for cultural tastemakers with the most sophisticated palates. The playlist features tracks personally selected by Harden to fit his taste – some of which were performed at this evening’s event: “All In” by Lil Baby, “way back” by Travis Scott, and “Candy” by Don Toliver.
“Music is the driving force behind my day to day motivation,” said Harden. “On the days that I lack, music helps me get the job done, in every area of my life. Curating a playlist for Spotify is an extension of what I do in my daily life. I find music I believe in, and I put people on.”
