Riot Games has revealed its latest music project: True Damage, a hip-hop group made up of League of Legends champions Akali, Qiyana, Yasuo, Ekko, and the newest addition, Senna.

The group is releasing as a set of in-game skins, but they are also dropped a new single, “Giants,” just K/DA last year. Akali is part of both groups, canonically. After all, if Ahri and Sona can be in multiple music projects, why can’t Akali?

Soyeon of K-pop girl group (G)i-dle returns to voice Akali, while actress and singer Keke Palmer plays Senna and singer Becky G plays Qiyana. Yasuo and Ekko will be played by rappers Duckwrth and Thutmose.

True Damage will perform at the opening ceremony for the 2019 League of Legends World Championship in Paris. Last year, augmented reality models of the League of Legends champions appeared on-stage with the real-life singers in a visually thrilling performance.

Of course, there will be in-game skins so players can rep True Damage, and Qiyana will get a special Prestige skin designed by Louis Vuitton, as part of the recent partnership between the French high-fashion company and Riot Games. The skins will be available to buy in-game starting Nov. 10 and a special drop of real life goods based off of two special skins will come in the future. Senna will also get a Louis Vuitton skin in the future, but not for this event.

Take a look at the skins below:
