The home game at State Farm Arena on Thanksgiving Eve (November 23) saw the Hawks take on the Sacramento Kings – and Tip and Domani may have brought just the right ATL energy as the Hawks took the W by 115 to the Kings’ 106.
The pair performed their fan-favorite single “Family Connect,” which currently has over 2 million views on YouTube.

In a press release prior to the performance, Domani called the experience a “bucket list moment” as he expressed his excitement about hitting the field with his pops.
“Growing up in Atlanta, the Hawks run through my DNA and going to tons of games throughout my life with my family,” he said. “We have a lot of great young talent on the team, so I definitely continue to have high hopes for the Hawks. Being able to perform with my pops at State Farm Arena is definitely a bucket list moment for me.”
The halftime show was part of a collaboration between The Hawks Shop and the Tip’s Trap Museum and included limited edition merchandise along with a pop-up curated by both the Hawks and the museum.
The happy family moment comes in the middle Tip’s escalating beef with comedian Charleston Whitewhich he recently brought to life on his feature on Jucee Froot’s new single “Step.”
“First your master got you/ Then the white people in Charleston bought you/ To the point you think people on IG care about you,” Tip raps at the beginning of the verse.
Elsewhere, he continues his jabs with: “I tell my son, ‘Tell that damn n-gga he got it if he was the opponent'” and: “See how far he’s done hanging himself/ Give him enough rope, he’ll surely finish hanging himself.”
And just to make sure his point was made, Tip closes the track with: “Someday my son reacts to what a fuck n-gga says/ I end up on the internet going back and forth with a J/ You’re a neva var, suck-a-dick-to-get-a-dub n-gga.”
The beef originates from White’s social media posts in October mocking TI’s son, King Harris and his friend Tootie Raww, son of Boosie Badazz, for being arrested the month before. The comedian has since released his own diss track In response.
