The EA Sports Bowl brought out all of Atlanta's biggest stars. Go inside to see Ciara posing it up with her hubby Russell Wilson before she hit the stage alongside Ludacris, T.I., Migos, Jeezy, Gucci Mane and more...
Welcome to Atlanta! Listen, this weekend in Atlanta is going to be TOO lit with the pre-Super Bowl festivities.
Before the biggest game of the year kicks off on Sunday, Atlanta's finest came out to rock the stage at the 2019 EA Sports Bowl held at State Farm Arena last night.
Crunk 'N B Princess Ciara pulled up on the carpet in a sexy LBD that showed off her killer legs. Chick's bod looked amazing. And her hubby/Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson was right by her side. Since the Seattle Seahawks aren't playing in this year's big game, he can relax and watch the football madness in a luxury box with his wife, and his kids - daughter Sienna Wilson and step-son Future Wilburn - if they decide to bring them along.
After working the carpet, CiCi hit the stage with her ATL homie Ludacris, who was tapped to close the show. See the Wilsons work the carpet and clips from Ciara's performance - where she performed "Goodies," "1,2 Step," "Level Up" and "Ride" - below:
Luda had tons of surprises for an epic show where he shared the stage with ATL's biggest Hip Hop stars.
As the clock struck midnight, Luda kicked off his set with the perfect track, "Welcome To Atlanta," where he brought Jermaine Dupri out for the turn up. He ran through a few of his classic hits, including "Stand Up," "Money Maker," "How Low," and then he brought Lil Jon out to perform "Yeah."
Jeezy came out to perform a special tribute to late ATL rapper Shawty Lo where the crowd got hype as he performed "Dey Know." Luda then ushered T.I. out to perform "Bring Em Out," which resulted in the first time Luda, Tip and Jeezy hit the stage together. ATL stand up!
On Instagram, Tip posted a picture of the trio with the caption, "Be Clear.... these faces along with a host of others (that look like US) laid the foundation for the infrastructure/artistic ecosystem you now know as Atlanta. THIS OUR SH*T & WE RUN THIS CITY!!!! Don’t get it FU*K’d UP!!! We’ll adjust the temperature to make it as HOT or COLD as we see fit. If we ain’t wit it... it ain’t SH*T!!!! Sincerely - King"
It was a homecoming for Atlanta's hip-hop legends and current superstars. The New School of rap stars also had the crowd on 1,000:
Migos, 21 Savage,Lil Baby, and Lil Yachty also hit the stage to perform.
The Migos brought out ATL rap legend Gucci Mane.
