Rolling Loud is partnering with the basketball league, Overtime Elite, to launch a new team that features two top prospects from the Class of 2024. Rolling Loud previously worked with WWE and the Miami Heat through their iconic music festival. The league, which is based in Atlanta, Georgia, showcases players from the ages of 16-20.
“The sport and spirit of basketball is an important part of the Rolling Loud experience, so we’re excited to expand that connection beyond the festival grounds with Overtime Elite. We’re proud to join with this exciting new league and help support the next generation of athletes in Los Angeles — our second hometown,” Matt Zingler and Tariq Cherif, co-founders at Rolling Loud, said in a statement provided to Billboard.
