The Hip Hop and video game industry synergy is strong within the announcement of The Green Room, the new joint venture between Xbox and Atlantic Records.
On Thursday (July 22), it was revealed that Hip Hop artists A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Bizzy Banks, Childish Major, Bankrol Hayden, Jucee Froot, Sueco The Child, and MILES would be mirrored against top-rated streamers (Vikkstar, HusKerrs, Clutch Belk, Destroy, etc.) and pro athletes (newly minted 6ix9ine supporter Sean ‘Suga’ O’Malley, NBA player Seth Curry, WNBA player Aerial Powers and NFL player Marquez Valdes-Scantling, among others).
“When I’m not in the studio, gaming is something that I enjoy. It’s a pleasure to be part of this event,” A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie said of the look.
“Gaming clears my mind. Whenever I’m stressed, going through anything, it helps me relax and get my mind off things,” Bankrol Hayden added. I’m a big fan of Gary V and Vaynersports, and am excited to be a part of this.”
With 10 teams in total, the top three winning squads will battle it out for a $10,000 cash prize pool and a customized Xbox championship belt. The first game on the chopping block will be Call of Duty®: Warzone™.
Acclaimed streamer Mitch ‘OG Pickle’ and radio DJ “Joey Franchise will serve as the hosts, as the event will combine the might of gaming giants VaynerSports and eFuse.
