NBA All Star Weekend has taken over Los Angeles, and while Lebron, Kobe and the biggest names in basketball will go at it this weekend, we thought it would be cool to put together our own Hip Pop All Star Team.

We’ve split our favorite Hip-Pop celebrities into East vs. West based on their accomplishments and where they are from. So today we will give you our Hip-Pop East All Stars.

Jay-Z: As Shawn Carter is gearing up to release his next album ‘Watch The Throne’ with Kanye West, he does so on top of the world. The ‘H.A.M.’ rapper ranked tops on the Forbes Cash King list with a whopping $63 million.

Rick Ross has remained one of the biggest rappers in Hip-Hop. In 2010 he dropped more music than a clumsy record store clerk. From Teflon Don to Albert Anastasia, Ricky Rozay proved the summer was his.
