“I love the opportunity to bring the sports and Hip Hop worlds together, and getting to bring Boardroom into the mix with this year’s All-RapCaviar campaign was a no-brainer,” stated Kevin Durant.

The former NBA Most Valuable Player added, “It was great to get the chance to mix it up with Taylor [Rooks], Boi-1da, and Hit-Boy, and I can’t wait to see the debates fans have about this year’s list.”

This year’s All-RapCaviar 1st Team consists of Metro Boomin, Drake, 21 Savage, Lil Uzi Vert, and Lil Baby. The 2nd Team is made up of Tyler, The Creator, Coi Leray, Lil Durk, Ice Spice, and Youngboy Never Broke Again.
