2 Chainz Becomes Part Owner Of The Hawks’ New College Park G League Team
2 Chainz is making major moves! The rapper recently announced that he is now part owner of the Atlanta Hawks’ NBA G League affiliate, the College Park Skyhawks!
The Grammy-nominated rapper will join an ownership group led by Principal Owner Tony Ressler and Vice Chair of the Board and Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer Grant Hill. Speaking on his big move, 2 Chainz said,
“It’s exciting and a dream come TRU to be a part of a sports team, especially one in my community,” 2 Chainz said. “Being able to give back, create opportunities for the youth, inspire and show people what you can do if you believe in yourself and work hard makes this opportunity so meaningful to me.”
Now, The Hawks and Chaniz have collaborated multiple times in the past. 2 Chainz performed as part of the popular Hawks In-game Concert Series twice; back in March 2015 and then again in December 2016. Atlanta Hawks CEO Steve Koonin also shared his excitement with 2 Chainz being on board in a statement saying,
“College Park is a place where stars are born, and we are excited to welcome one of the city’s biggest – 2 Chainz – as an owner of the College Park Skyhawks. It is truly a perfect match. Nobody represents College Park better or is more invested in that community than him and his passion and knowledge for the game of basketball is well-documented. He will be a great ambassador for the Skyhawks – the next generation of College Park stars,” Atlanta Hawks CEO Steve Koonin said.
