LOS ANGELES, June 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, REVOLT, the leading Black-owned multi-media platform, announced the star-studded lineup of heavy hitters, on both the stage and basketball court, to join the second season of The Crew League.

This line up will compete in a sports showdown for bragging rights and a grand prize of $200,000, with half of the proceeds going to charity. With the talent on and off the court, Season 2 of The Crew League is going to ensure a never-before-seen level of competition.
"REVOLT continues to be a platform that empowers artists by giving them equal opportunity to showcase their talent on and off camera," said Detavio Samuels, CEO of REVOLT. "After a successful Season 1 blurring the lines between music and basketball, we're excited to continue the momentum with a fresh, new crew of your favorite celebrities going head-to-head."
The newly added roster to the unscripted basketball series features Chris Brown as both a player and an Executive Producer alongside Sean "Diddy" Combs. Brown and his team "OHB" will face off against Rowdy Rebel's "Shhh Gang" and "The Tycoons" led by G-Eazy, plus more. Comedian Druski will return as a host alongside Jack Harlow and many other surprise guest hosts who will be providing commentary throughout the season.
The Crew League Season 2 is a follow up to its premiere season, which aired on REVOLT in February and featured rap stars such as Swae Lee, The Kid Laroi, G Herbo, DDG, Russ, 24KGoldn and more. Season 1 was eventful, entertaining and highlighted Swae Lee's "Firefighters" squad championship-winning campaign as well as multiple heated trash-talking confrontations between the squads.
