A rapper who was booked to perform at an NBA All-Star Game event this weekend in Atlanta was killed in a drive-by shooting along I-85, police say.

Houston's Chucky Trill, best known for his rap single "Keisha," was shot in the head while driving on I-85 near Jimmy Carter Blvd around 3 a.m. Friday.

Police responding to a report of shots fired found the gunshot victim in a stopped car alongside I-85.

Trill, real name Corey Detiege, 33, was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Passengers in Trill's vehicle were not injured. They could not describe the suspect or the suspect's vehicle, police tell 11Alive.

The aspiring rapper was scheduled to perform at one of the many NBA All-Star weekend events in Atlanta, his manager with Boneafide Entertainment told 11Alive.

Thousands of people have descended on Atlanta to take part in the NBA All-Star weekend festivities.

The NBA All-Star Game at State Farm Arena is closed to the public due to Covid, but that hasn't deterred visitors who ignored Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms's pleas to stay home.

"This pandemic has been going on for a year now. People are tired of staying in the house," NBA fan Kevin Hines told Channel 2's Michael Seiden.

Hines, who is visiting from New Jersey, said he is excited to attend this weekend's parties. "It's all on the internet. Parties everywhere. Celebrities. All the celebrities are down here."

Police agencies and Fulton County's top prosecutor have issued stern warnings to out-of-town visitors, according to the AJC.

"You decide to come here and commit crimes, we will give you a free ride and assist with accommodations at the Fulton County Sheriff's Office Jail at 901 Rice Street," the South Fulton Police Department posted on social media. "Don't come here to fight, take other people's things, or drive under the influence."

Fani Willis, Fulton County's district attorney, wrote on Facebook: "If you come to Atlanta for All-Star Weekend and commit an act of violence, please plan to stay. 901 Rice Street awaits you."

Atlanta Police Department officers will work 12-hour shifts throughout the weekend, according to Deputy Chief Michael O'Connor.

Officers will set up road blocks near NBA All-Star events and will be on the lookout for drunk drivers, street racers and anyone hosting illegal house parties.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms expressed concerns about the NBA All-Star game coming to Atlanta.

The 2021 All-Star game is scheduled to take place on March 7 in Atlanta. But Mayor Bottoms has concerns about out-of-towners coming to a city already struggling with high crime.

Atlanta was wide open when other Democratic cities were locked down tight during the Covid-19 outbreak.

While other cities shut down businesses and nightclub venues, clubs in Atlanta are packed with maskless patrons every night.

Atlanta is battling a violent crime wave that shows no sign of slowing down. Out-of-towners are responsible for the spike in crime.

"I'm open to suggestions," Bottoms said after a 7-year-old girl was shot outside an upscale shopping mall in affluent Buckhead.

A woman was shot in a movie theater after she shushed two patrons in January. Camryn King, 20, and Yvonne Crawford, 22, were arrested by U.S. Marshals on Wednesday, Feb. 17. They will be extradited from Indiana to face trial.

The victim, who had been shot in the shoulder, was treated for non life-threatening injuries and released from a hospital.

Mayor Bottoms is concerned that the All-Star game will attract even more criminals to her besieged city.

"Under normal circumstances, we'd be grateful for the opportunity to host the NBA All-Star game, but this isn’t a typical year," Mayor Bottoms tweeted. "I have shared my concerns related to public health and safety with the NBA and Atlanta Hawks. We are in agreement that this is a made-for-TV event only, and people should not travel to Atlanta to party."

Singers Jennifer Hudson (left) and Queen Latifah honored the late NBA star Kobe Bryant before the 2020 All-Star game in Chicago over the weekend.

Latifah, 49, performed Stevie Wonder's hit song "Love's in Need of Love Today" at the NBA's Saturday Night Skills competitions. She added a rap verse in honor of Kobe, who died along with his daughter, Gianna, 13, and seven others in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California on January 26.

Latifah added the verse "Give love a shot / When you do, say 'Kobe' / 24 hours, eight days a week, trophies."

Jennifer Hudson performed a stirring tribute to Kobe during the NBA All-Star pre-game at the United Center in Chicago on Sunday.

Hudson, 38, was introduced by an emotional Magic Johnson, 60, who led the audience in 8 seconds of silence for Kobe and late NBA Commissioner David Stern, who died in January from complications of a stroke.

The Grammy and Oscar winner performed in front of a giant screen that flashed photos from Kobe's stellar career with the Los Angeles Lakers and touching images of the NBA legend with his daughter.

Hudson wore a floor length crushed velvet gown as she performed "For All We Know." Afterwards, she posed with celebrities such as rapper Ludacris, center, and actor Chadwick Boseman, right.

Rap producer Dr. Dre also performed a tribute to Kobe's greatest moments in sports. The Staples Center was temporarily renamed KOBE Center in his video.

Rapper Common performed a song before introducing the All-Stars for Team LeBron James and Team Giannis Antetokounmpo. The team members wore the numbers 2 and 24 for Gianna and Kobe respectively.

A public memorial service will be held for Kobe and Gianna at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 24. But the service is marred with controversy because tickets are being sold for as much as $250 with the proceeds going to Kobe's charity.

Watch Hudson's and Latifah's tributes below.

Stephen Curry's female fans woke up to find his nudes all over their Twitter timelines this morning. Suffice it to say they are not impressed by what they see.

The NBA superstar has some explaining to do after his nudes were allegedly leaked online by a former lover who attempted to shop the pics around, but received no bids.

It's unclear if Curry's former lover is male or female or whether he cheated on his wife, Ayesha Curry.

The collection of photos shows Curry in various stages of arousal. In one suspect photo, Curry stands against a wall facing a man while holding a towel over his genitals.

Curry is the second celebrity to be the subject of ridicule and scorn because he doesn't measure up to his fans' expectations.

Rapper A$AP Rocky deleted his sex tape after he received terrible reviews for his "weak" stroke game.

But no one expected to see the day when Curry's nudes would leak. The NBA MVP is well-respected as a family man and a Christian.

A male Warriors fan tweeted:

"Saw Steph Curry was trending, and thought he was making progress from his injury, so I clicked on it. Worst decision of my life. I'm getting a lobotomy now."

And another user tweeted, "Steph Curry Nudes Leaked before Ayesha's."
