The Stars Came Out To Play for Harden’s Celebrity Basketball Game

In case you missed it, James Harden held his annual JH-Town Weekend this past weekend which kicked off on Friday, August 17th with a Comedy Show featuring Deray Davis, D.C. Mcfly, and a host of other hilarious comedians. The festivities continued on Saturday with the Celebrity Softball Game, but the highlight of the weekend was the Celebrity Basketball Game on Sunday. IMG_6930

With appearances from the MVP himself, Russell Westbrook, Meek Mill, 21 Savage, and home town favorite Travis Scott, the event was full of highlights that paralleled the All-Star Game. The weekend was much more than a celebrity filled event as the true purpose of the weekend is to raise money for Harden’s foundation which mentors students and provides scholarships to support the next generation. With a great cause serving the foundation for a fun filled weekend, this is not an event that you want to miss! Mark your calendar for next years festivities and stay tuned as the Rockets are poised to make another great run this year.

Houston’s Rise: DKEELA’s Hit “Do You Mind”

Brand New Houston invites all our hip hop music fans to meet up and coming artist DKEELA, because if you don’t know him… you ‘bout to be late!

The Dirty South always knew it was only a matter of time before Houston took back the reigns of the hip-hop world and DKEELA is here to help make sure that happens. Hailing from Kenner, Louisiana, DKEELA came to our third coast city in 2006 bringing with him a legacy of family music, which has clearly inspired his versatile and witty style that we’ve all been waiting for. His #BrandNew single “Do You Mind” unmistakably Image-1shows his ability to make powerhouse hits. This single is definitely a club banger late-summer anthem and perfect for the ladies with its Chris Brown influences. If you haven’t heard it yet, we’re telling you.. you’re ‘bout to be late!

It’s no surprise that DKEELA just graced us with a potential chart topper because he’s really not new to the game. You may have seen him performing at The Secret Group or opening up for Paul Wall, and if you search him on Vevo you’ll see he’s even a verified artist. The city of Houston stands behind one of our newest talents rocking the industry and Brand New Houston will for sure keep you posted on all the new moves of our top players!

Check out Do You Mind on all your favorite streaming sites and make sure you check him out at The House of Blues soon!
