Nelly, Ja Rule, Jermaine Dupri, the Clipse, and Nappy Roots are among the wide array of artists confirmed to appear on the Club NBA live music stage during the National Basketball Association's (NBA) four-day All-Star Jam Session in Atlanta. The Feb-6-9 event at the Georgia World Congress Center will offer the concerts at no additional cost to the admission to the family-oriented basketball festival, which leads up to the Feb. 9 NBA All-Star Game at the city's Phillips Arena.

Others slated to appear at the Rbk- and Sprite-sponsored Club NBA are Amerie, Jagged Edge, B2K, Mr. Cheeks, Cee-Lo, Floetry, Marvin Winans, Nivea, K. Mike, Field Mob, and Zane. A host of local talent will round out each day's concert bill.

While the music will be a big feature of the Jam Session, the event will be focused squarely on basketball activities and games. Fans can test their jump shot and passing skills, as well as meet NBA and WNBA players during autograph sessions and clinics. Tickets priced at $15 for adults and $10 for children (3-12) and seniors are available via Ticketmaster.

As previously reported, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, B2K, and LL Cool J are all in line to perform at the NBA's Feb. 8 "Read To Achieve" charity event. The hour-long festivities will be televised on ABC, and simulcast on a total of 12 television networks, including TNT, Disney, Nickelodeon, BET, Telemundo, and Canada's MuchMusic.
