It's still more than five months, but plans are already in motion for the weekend of February 12 through February 14--or, as we've already called it, the most important weekend in Dallas hip-hop history--when the 2010 NBA All-Star game rolls through town.
So far, at least one hip-hop party plan is in place: On Friday, February 12, DJ Dre and friends of his from the DJ Drop-led Definition DJs crew will host a party at Union Station--no doubt a sign that the crew that brought the Boogie to the forefront of the Dallas scene is hoping to make some big plays during the annual event, which often doubles as a magnet for the music industries biggest hip-hop moguls.
