Polo G’ s Dec. 18 MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre gig got canned, but here’s something of a makeup.

It happens when the 22-year-old Chicago rapper takes to the grounds outside Raymond James Stadium for a post-Turkey Day festival that not only includes a concert from Mr. G and another G (Herbo), but basketball-related activities including a sneaker convention, NBA 2K competitions, dance contests, 1-on-1 and more.

And no matter what happens, Polo G will walk away with a W as he just dunked on the Miami-Dade State Attorney which dropped two felonies and one misdemeanor against him because it didn’t have enough evidence to prosecute. 

Saturday, Nov. 27, 4 p.m. $50 & up. Raymond James Stadium Parking Lot, Tampa.
