Clippers enters partnership with Ty Dolla $ign, will perform at opening night vs. Lakers
The Los Angeles Clippers and Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, and music producer Ty Dolla $ign announced a partnership on Wednesday afternoon.
The 34-year old singer will be at Staples Center for opening night when the Clippers play host to the Los Angeles Lakers. He’ll be performing his hit song, “Hottest in the City” at halftime.
In addition to the halftime performance on opening night, the Clippers and Ty Dolla $ign’s partnership will include exclusive, co-branded “Ty Dolla $ign x Clippers” merchandise, which will be available at the Team LA store starting opening night. Select fans will also have a chance to meet the singer and get additional giveaways throughout the first game of the season.
Barring any changes, Kawhi Leonard is set to make his Clippers debut on opening night without any restrictions against LeBron James, Anthony Davis, and the Lakers. The star-studded game will continue to be star-studded throughout halftime with the big performance.
“Los Angeles is my home and a huge part of who I am,” said Ty in a release about the announcement. “It influences everything I do; from my style to my music to the cars I drive, so to partner with the Clippers for opening night is huge.
“My 14-year old daughter is one of the best basketball players I know, so to have her be there with me is going to be extra special. It’s a big moment for LA. The L.A. Clippers vs. the Los Angeles Lakers, and Dolla $ign, the King of LA. What more do you need? Shout out to the Clippers for the honor. It’s going to be a fun night.”
The Clippers and Lakers will tip off on Tuesday night at 7:30PM EST on TNT.
