Last Friday we decided to try something new by giving a popular hip-hop line some substance. Ballin' in the club – we made it happen for real. 16 Braves basketball players went head-to-head for a heated 1x1 tournament on the dancefloor-turned-court of E4 club.

Hype man Mr. Mo' Money kept the energy up on the court while DJs Dreea, Sugaboy, Haizel, and Bafouboy dropped the flow from the sidelines. Berlin rapper Chima Ede hit the floor before the championship matchup for a live performance to build anticipation... and an opportunity to hit the bar.

The final saw Marley take on Kareem, who was on the winning team of last year's 3v3 tournament. Both put on a show for the crowd, with Marley taking the crown and bragging rights until the next tournament.

To top it all off, Kana & Mavie of Kornkreis Mafia spit some fire to celebrate their recent debut and Marley’s victory. Big up for the gute laune and (live) performances, homies.

A special thanks goes out to Tiny Tim and his delicious delights behind the pizza counter, as well as Kevskutz who kept the crowd so fresh and so clean with his barber skills.

Most of all, thanks to those who showed their love for the game – as the saying goes, ball don't lie.
