Quavo and Jack Harlow Dominate 2 Chainz and Lil Baby in Open Run 2-on-2 Match


While most eyes are on college basketball and the NBA, fans got to see some of hip-hop’s biggest names show off their basketball skills over the weekend in the Bleacher Report’s two-on-two match on Saturday, March 6 as part of the All-Star Weekend. Artists Quavo and Jack Harlow faced off against Lil Baby and 2 Chainz with the first team ultimately emerging victorious with a final score of 21-7.

The event, presented by Modelo Beer,  featured the makings of the best basketball rivalries from the pre-game hype to on-court trash talking to post-game bragging rights.

Quavo was undoubtedly the game’s all-star, racking up an impressive 17 points, 14 rebounds, and four blocks. (Quavo was previously named MVP of the Celebrity All-Star Game in 2018.) Considering that he had boldly claimed the title of “Best Hip-Hop Basketball Player in the World” to Bleacher Report earlier in the week, he appeared to put his money (and his skills) where his mouth was.


2Chainz appeared to trash talk the refs throughout the game, but still out-performed his teammate by far, leading to light-hearted mocking on Twitter as well as what appeared to be an admission of defeat, tweeting “Been put that down basketball to go see what the field like” with a laughing emoji and snake emoji.

Quavo and Harlow received a cash prize of $500,000 in addition to the $500,000 that Bleacher’s Report pledged to donate to HBCUs of their choice. Harlow tweeted that money would be donated to Kentucky State University and Simmons College of Kentucky.
