Filipino rapper to organize unique hoops event

By Dugout Philippines

TAGUIG--To kick off an advocacy for 2016, rapper Mike Swift will organize a fun day of hoops and entertainment on Jan. 31 at the Tenement Court.

Called the Picnic Games 5, the event will feature basketball challenges, rap battles, dance showdowns, and more.

To make it even more fun, Swift partnered with Nike for the said event, making Picnic Games 5 the launching event of the apparel brand's "Bring Your Game" campaign in the Philippines.

Nike already launched a basketball clinic in the said venue to kick off its "Rise Beyond Belief" campaign last year.

Prior to its start, Paul George and LeBron James paid a visit to the said court, which has been repainted with the latter's image.

"We are calling this a basketball and art festival!" Swift describes the Picnic Games event.
