Hip-Hop and hoops have long had a relationship. That love between both forms will expand to REVOLT as Sean Combs aka Diddy has partnered with The Crew league for an unscripted show, a first-of-its-kind basketball battle of hip-hop stars and their crews.
“The Crew League delivers REVOLT’s mission of creating meaningful content that shifts cultural norms and offers a fresh perspective – The Crew League is a dope way for artists to do something they love, while still giving back to causes that are important to them,” said Sean Combs, Chairman of REVOLT.
The show is set to premiere on Friday, February 19 bringing in Swae Lee, Russ, Jack Harlow, Lil Mosey, Lil Keed, G Herbo, The Kid LAROI, and DDG, along with surprise special guests, as they compete in a friendly basketball tournament. The show is hosted by Buster Scher, Druski, and 24KGoldn who will provide commentary.
“This show was created to showcase not only the celebrity talent involved but also the “crews” around them. The celebrities’ entourages’ are integral to the success of the entire group, said Elie Maroun, Co-Founder & Commissioner of The Crew League. “We had the idea to create this show after a few music industry friends decided to play a couple pick-up basketball games in L.A. After playing with PARTYNEXTDOOR, The Weeknd and their teams, I realized if we were to broadcast this, people would love it! That’s when The Crew League was born.”
The season 1 finale of The Crew League will coincide with the NBA All-Star Weekend in March.
