Levi’s® kicked off its third annual Ball-B-Q at The Godfrey Hotel Rooftop in Chicago, Illinois. Don C of Just Don Clothing hosted the event with DJ sets by DJ Oreo, DJ Chase B, and DJ Esta.

In celebration of NBA All-Star Weekend 2020, Levi’s® teamed up with Chicago-based Don C’s brand, Just Don, on a limited NBA licensed collection inspired by the oversized warm-ups and tracksuits of the ’90s. The collaboration was featured during The Levi’s® third annual Ball-B-Q.

Mass Appeal Magazine was in attendance celebrating alongside with some major talent including Levi’s®, Don C, DJ Oreo, DJ Chase B, DJ Esta, Brandon Ingram (New Orleans Pelicans), Kemba Walker (Boston Celtics), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City Thunder), Paul Pierce (former NBA player), Al Harrington (former NBA player), Richaun Holmes (Sacramento Kings), Zaza Pachulia (former NBA player), Alex Bars (Chicago Bears) Fabolous, Rhuigi Villasenor, Sarunas Jackson, Dr. Woo, Jamal Trulove, Nate Robinson (former NBA player, BIG 3), Beckham, BJ The Chicago Kid, DJ Clue, Andrew Pitt, Mandii Rodgers, and more.

“The Levi’s project was inspired by the ’88 All-Star Game and different Chicago imagery that really represented the city,” says Don C. He incorporated the six-pointed star because he felt like that really represented the city. The Chicago flag has two blue horizontal stripes or bars on a field of white, each stripe one-sixth the height of the full flag, and placed slightly less than one-sixth of the way from the top and bottom. Between the two blue stripes are four red, six-pointed stars arranged in a horizontal row. Its six points represent the virtues of religion, education, aesthetics, justice, beneficence, and civic pride.
