808s and Fastbreaks

Shad Gregory Moss, the artist formerly known as Lil’ Bow Wow, is a man-child of many talents. He raps, he acts, he twitters while driving drunk through the streets of Miami Beach. And Sunday, Bow Wow’s gonna show off his on-court skills (see: 2002’s orphan-becomes-NBA-superstar flick Like Mike) in a game of Celebrity Basketball against fellow hip-hoppa turned thespian Nelly.

Back when Nelly first challenged Bow Wow to a b-ball battle, the younger rapper responded in rhyme: “I accept your challenge/Imma get in your ass/Grown men in the paint/Pin your shit to the glass.” It wasn’t especially classy, but will the psychological warfare pay off? Come catch Mr. Wow and his Cash Money Millionaires versus Nelly’s Derrty Entertainment at the BankUnited Center (1245 Dauer Drive, Coral Gables) to see whether trash talk really works. The balling will begin at 5 p.m., and tickets cost $10 to $100. Call 305-284-8686, or visit bankunitedcenter.com.
