Shaquille O’Neal, Lupe Fiasco and others are set to participate in  the ELEAGUE Street Fighter V celebrity tournament for charity!

Hosted by Turner Sports and WME|IMG, the video game showdown is happening in Atlanta on April 28, and will be aired live on TBS. In addition to Shaq and Lupe, Reggie Bush and Natalie Eva Marie will also be playing. The players will go head to head in Street Fighter V for the chance to get a piece of an unannounced prize pool and will donate their respective winnings to a charity of their choosing.

“On any given night, you are likely to find me and my husband on the couch battling it out over a video game,” Natalie told ESPN. “It’s something we enjoy doing together, so I jumped at the opportunity to show my skills during the Street Fighter Celebrity Showdown.”

The tournament format will consist of two semifinals match ups with the winners facing off in the final.

Shaq will be playing for Odessa Chambliss Quality of Life Fun, while Reggie is gaming for the 619 Charitable Fund. Lupe is playing for M.U.R.A.L. (Magnifying Urban Realities and Affecting Lives), and Natalie is playing for the American Cancer Society.

Super cool that they’re going to be battling each other for charity! Good luck to each of them.
