Add YG to the list of celebrities who have stopped by Tempe to participate in the Arizona State Sun Devils' Curtain of Distraction.

YG, whose debut album "My Krazy Life" reached No. 1 on the U.S. R&B/Hip Hop charts in 2014, stopped by Wells Fargo Arena during ASU's men's basketball game vs. UNLV on Saturday to make an appearance in the Curtain, which was created by the Sun Devil student section to distract opposing free-throw shooters.

The Curtain has gained national attention since it was featured in the New York Times and on ESPN SportsCenter last year. In January, record-setting Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps made an appearance wearing nothing but a Speedo.

ASU went on to rout UNLV 97-73 as the Devils tied a school record with 18 3-pointers, including 13 in the first half.
