About Us
Some kids grow up with aspirations of becoming a businessman, others want to be on TV and some want to be rappers. Southern MC, Sporty-O is living all his dreams. Neither too crunk nor too country, he represents the most well-rounded Atlanta image in rap. Taking his stage name from a highly-respected uncle, Sporty-O started off life in College Park. Influenced by a wide range of musical genres and artists, Sporty-O's music is a lethal combination of skill, wit, soul, and verve. An established businessman and avid investor, Sporty-O opened a successful record store in Atlanta when he was just 22, which afforded him the opportunity to record and press up his own CDs. "Owning a record store was a great move for me. I was able to surround myself around something that I loved and it also gave me a chance to develop relationships with different DJ's." Racking up frequent flyer miles traveling from Atlanta to Los Angeles, the current bi-coastal rapper scored a TV gig on MTV as a character on the Jamie Kennedy show, 'Blowin Up'. Since co-starring in the MTV show, Sporty-O has exploded on the movie scene with appearances in the newly filmed, "National Lampoon's Van Wilder 3", "Road Trip 2" & "Preacher's Kid" starring Clifton Powell, Tank, Trey Songz, & Letoya Luckett. Known for his introspective and inventive rhymes, Sporty-O shines mainly due to his varied musical production, energetic lyric content and delivery. Effortlessly moving from frenzied beats to more laid-back 808 bass-lines and from high-energy, hard-knock flows to deep, thought-provoking messages, the SuperSport mixtape series has been standout classics for every hip-hop head. SuperSport Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 have collectively sold over 125,000 copies in the past three years and Sporty-O's record label, HomeTeam Entertainment has successfully used extremely productive gorilla marketing tactics to attract attention and respect for Sporty-O's widely popular SuperSport mixtape series. His new addition to that series is entitled, SuperSport Vol. Free which is available as a FREE digitial download on his myspace page, www.myspace.com/sportyo and his website www.sportyo.com as a thank you to all the fans that have continued to support the Sporty-O movement. With increasing street and internet buzz, Sporty-O continues to capitalize from his creative and likeable persona, which can be found on clever tracks such as his infectious smash single, 'U Not Beyonce', which gained heavy rotation on the radio all over the country last year. Now his new single, "I Am Money", produced by Kaeswole, will be taking over the radio airwaves mid-January and have the rap world again focused on the groundbreaking music of Sporty-O.
