ENSPIRE Contributor: Aricka Croxton
YouTube Originals premiered “Home Courts.” It’s an all-new special featuring the Migos rapper and basketball lover, Quavo, exploring the city of Atlanta through the lens of famous local basketball courts. With the help of local athletes and public figures who call the city home, including artist Killer Mike, Atlanta Dream Co-Owner and Vice President Renee Montgomery, former Mayors of Atlanta Andrew Young and Kasim Reed, and former NFL star Walter Stith.
Viewers will learn about the role basketball courts play for local communities at large, important historical locations centered around the city, as well as the little-known stories of the players who left the small swath of asphalt to go pro. The special is based on a Quavo original idea and produced by Critical Content, with Tom Forman, Jenny Daly, Quavo, and Brian Sher serving as executive producers.
The documentary comes shortly after the release of “Ice Cold,” a four-episode docu-series from executive producers MIGOS that touches on another thought-provoking subject pertinent to the rap trio. The series uses the prism of hip-hop jewelry to explore deeper issues around racial inequity and the American Dream. You can watch “Home Courts with Quavo” now on Migos’ YouTube Channel here.
