R.I.P. Sporty Thievz’ Marlon Brando

On May 11, 2001, Sporty Thievz member Marlon Brando was struck by a car in the Bronx and died at the age of 22. Prior to his death, Brando made a name for himself alongside his partners in rhyme King Kirk and Big Dubez. Known for their comical take on everyday topics, the group’s claim to fame was “No Pigeons,” their answer record to TLC’s smash hit “No Scrubs.”

In memory of Brando and the Thievz’s place in hip-hop history, we’ve compiled a few of the group’s most memorable tracks.

“No Pigeons” Sporty Thievz

“Cheapskate” Sporty Thievz

“Cheapskate (Remix)” Sporty Thievz

“Hit it Up” Sporty Thievz

“Uh Oh” Sporty Thievz feat. Pace Won

    Listen I been trying to tell dudes from way back that their “Street Cinema” Album has to be the most slept on Album in the History of Hip Hop (TRUE STORY)!!!. They smashed it with that Aqua Men joint. I’m from the 401 (Providence) for those not aware, and these dudes got heavy play out the Gold EV’s on the back dash, shutting down whole parking lots with like 100 Heathens ready to hurt something!!!!
