"We can't imagine a more entertaining combination of hip-hop music and smash mouth basketball. Get ready to see these talented artists and their entourages compete to be crowned champion of 'The Crew League'," said Peter Jideonwo, 'The Crew League' Co-Founder.

'The Crew League' is a unique alternative to current content offerings and we're excited about its potential." said Jordan A. Stern, Co-Founder of Grey Space Group & 'The Crew League'
"The music artists and athletes on TikTok have touched so many people across the country and around the world. Our partnership with 'The Crew League' celebrates the long-standing connection between basketball and hip-hop and how this community is driving culture on the platform."
