It's always entertaining to see rappers go head-to-head on the basketball court, especially given how many artists are actually quite adept at it. For example, 2 Chainz originally had hoop dreams long before picking up a microphone, and he's far from the only one. We've seen Quavo of Migos fame shut it down at the NBA celebrity all-star game on several occasions, taking home the MVP title in 2018 and scoring a game-high 47 points in 2019.

Now, 2 Chainz and Quavo are gearing up to go head-to-head in a two-on-two game of basketball, one that will benefit historically Black colleges and universities. Presented by Modelo Beer, Bleacher Report’s Open Run will find Quavo and Jack Harlow engaging in a competitive match-up against 2 Chainz and Lil Baby.

The winning team will have the earnings gifted to a historically Black university or college of their choosing. On that note, Harlow has selected Simmons College of Kentucky and Kentucky State; Baby has selected Morehouse College and Spelman College; Quavo will rep for Clark Atlanta University and Spellman College; finally, 2 Chainz will hold it down for Alabama State University, where he once played division 1 basketball.

Be sure to keep an eye out for this one, and sound off with your predictions on which team will take home the prize -- Quavo and Jack, or Lil Baby and 2 Chainz?
