Musicians Terrance “Pusha T” Thornton, Sir Robert Bryson “Logic” Hall II, and Mike “Upscale Vandal” Camargo have joined GG Group as co-owners. Founded in 2018, the GG Group owns professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive organization Chaos Esports Club.
Pusha T was seen supporting Chaos on Twitter after their upset versus 100Theives. In a short but simple tweet, Pusha T exclaimed, “GG fellas” and tagged each member of the team. Fans quickly took notice of Pusha T’s support and theorized it might have been a jab at his adversary, Aubrey “Drake” Graham, who is part owner of 100Thieves. At the time, the tweets caused waves throughout the community as they attributed them as a snuff to Drake.

On August 25, Chaos announced GG Group’s partnership with Pusha T, Logic, and Upscale Vandal. In their open letter, Chaos revealed that they’re developing a diverse ownership group whose goal is to support causes fighting social and racial injustice. GG Group’s unique board of owners is planning to “reintroduce” Chaos Esports Club in a manner that aligns with the organization’s new initiatives. Said Pusha T, “my main call to action was to focus on the lack of inclusion and diversity in the gaming industry.”
