Dwayne Wade had a phenomenal 16-year NBA career with the Miami Heat, winning three NBA championships. Ja Rule and Ludacris are both well-known for their popular songs from the 2000s. Ja Rule and Ludacris recently teamed up to rock Dwayne Jade’s birthday celebration.

Former NBA star Dwyane Wade celebrated his 40th birthday on Monday, January 17 with a celebration at Casita Hollywood in Los Angeles attended by family and friends. In clips that circulated on social media, fans witnessed D-Wade arrive with his guests to live performances by none other than Ja Rule and Ludacris.

In one footage, Ja grabbed the microphone to congratulate Dwyane Wade and mentions his love for playing against his hometown New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden before breaking into his 2004 smash track “New York” (sans Fat Joe and Jadakiss).

Wade, who was born in Chicago, couldn’t stop himself from dancing and singing along to the music, which made him feel like a New Yorker. In another video, Ludacris sang his Kanye West-produced “Stand Up” smash from 2003’s Chicken-n-Beer, while D-Wade continued to groove to his birthday party soundtrack.

Rappers from the early 2000s performing at birthday celebrations is not a new phenomenon. In August, Fat Joe had N.O.R.E. play his 1998 blockbuster single “Superthug” for Joey Crack’s 51st birthday.

With their amazing performance, Ja Rule and Ludacris made Dwayne’s big day memorable. It was also well received by the audience. Keep an eye on Thirsty for more information.
