Rap duo the Youngbloodz are teaming with the YMCA to launch a youth basketball league in their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.

Sean Paul and J-BO are hoping their local sporting efforts will have a range of benefits for the community.

They say in a statement, "The main focus of this league is not just about winning games.

"We are hoping to mentor these guys along the way, encouraging them to be productive members of the community by enforcing the principles of teamwork and cooperation."
