Young Thug and Kevin Liles have announced today, the “Hot” Battle of The Bands Challenge. The digital campaign invites all historically black colleges and university (HBCU) marching bands to produce a short video posted to TikTok and shared on social media (Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook) showcasing their school spirit and talent with their best marching band rendition of Young Thug’s “Hot”.

The school that receives the highest engagement on their video will receive a $25,000 donation total to the winning school’s music department/Band Program from Young Thug’s record label Young Stoner Life Records and Kevin Liles and 300 Entertainment.
