The intersection of hip-hop and basketball hasn't been more adamant than it is right now. REVOLT, the media company owned by entertainment and business mogul, Sean "Diddy" Combs, also known as "LOVE," has a suitable program on the meeting of the subjects, returning for another season of the television series, The Crew League.
The Crew League is a basketball celebrity competition that's newest season will consisted of entertainers like Jason Derulo, Tyga, Chris Brown and G Eazy. Diddy is also executive producer of the show along with Elie Maroun.
With The Crew League, each team captain is a celebrity that comes along the tournament with their "crew", a group of friends that they entrust in their abilities to hoop. They go head-to-head in a showdown and receive not only bragging rights but also a grand prize of $200,000, with half of the proceeds going to charity. The premise of the show is a nod to the 1990’s MTV Rock N Jock which aimed to disrupt audiences with curated content for Gen Zs and millennials. The first matchup begins this Friday, June 4th.
The last season, broadcasted earlier this spring, brought fun moments on and off the basketball court with commentating from comedian, Druski, and artist Jack Harlow. The two are returning for season two and will be joined by none other than Bobby Shmruda. Drake will be also making a surprise appearance sometime in the season so most definitely keep your eyes peeled for that. The season premieres on REVOLT with matchups and episodes dropping every Friday in June.
