Sporty Spicez

Sporty Thievz - Dogz
(From The Lost Cinema Pt 1 album; late 90s/2021)

Highlight of that recent album of unreleased Sporty Thievz songs imho. Chauvinism as an artform with a dash of equal opportunity hating from da ladeez. Definitely feel like The Culcha™ was robbed of this song being the follow up single Cheapskate, though they'd have to get their Nutty Professor on to come up with a clean edit. Also a huge pity Hot Pursuit got shelved because it's some Sporty & The Bandit type shit which lives up to the Street Cinema title of their debut album.

Bonus beats: there's a few other deep gems on King Kirk's Bandcamp for #SportyThievzHive. Any Rap song with the Le Pamplemousse bass break is automatically a 4/5 banger.

Anyone got a link for that unreleased Sporty Thievz album and that unreleased Money Boss Players Minnesota just dropped recently?

On “Ya Don’t Stop”, who is the first rapper? He’s great.

Dope on a rope

Jmil, I think that's Marlon Brando aka the one who died when he got hit by a car. Not entirely sure tho because all three of Sporty have similar voices.

There's a parallel universe where "Fuck I Look Like" gets a proper release and becomes the biggest song of the summer in the year 2000

There's a couple of joints on the 2nd Sporty album which had hella potential to be big, Party & Pimpin' being the most obvious,

Andrew Barber said...

wow good looks on the link to their shelved 2nd album on Bandcamp. Never heard this. Can't believe it's 2021 and I'm just finding out a "Spy Hunter" sequel exists. Part 1 was a rap nerd fan fave

Andrew Barber said...

also wtf why isn't Fuck I Look Like on their second album? That was the single! wtf

it was also a roller skating song for whatever reason

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Yeah I don't understand why it's not on there either.

Having said that, Mac Daddy is missing from the first album on Bandcamp so maybe there's legal issues with a few tracks?
