The US Open has its first ever Rap Song

Dear Friends, The USTA’s ICON Awards, this year celebrating its fourth anniversary, has become one of the signature events at the US Open, leveraging the international stage of one of America’s greatest sports and entertainment spectaculars to recognize individual and institutional contributions in diversity and inclusion. As the national governing body for tennis, the USTA is wholeheartedly committed to the principles of fairness and equality. In all that we do, from supporting tennis programs that make the sport more accessible in local communities to staging the crown jewel of the professional game—the US Open—we are dedicated to growing our sport and making it look like America. For this reason, we have selected a rap song for the first time ever to serve as the Official Anthem of the US OPEN - performed by the wonderfully urban raphop group Los Throbbing Monsters.
