Good start, bad ending

Released as Hip Hop's Golden Era was fading into history, Street Cinema by Sporty Thievz was a solid concept album by a debut group: a group shortly thereafter reduced to a musical joke of their own doing. "No Pigeons," an album add-on and a musical riff on TLC's "No Scrubs," was a meat head's take on the R&B female protagonist. TLC's response to the hyperactive misogyny running rampant in hip hop at the time (and during the decade previous) was a fresh take on the classic independent woman's anthem: it was funny, catchy, and long overdue. Why Sporty Thievz felt it necessary (or at best, original) to s*** on this notion is puzzling. Months later, after a similar dis record was leveled at Destiny's Child, the group had reduced themselves to the Weird Al of rap: difference was, Weird Al aimed his jokes inward, while Sporty Thievz weren't quite as secure. By the time the dust settled and the years went by, their pop music targets gained legendary status while they remain an East Coast footnote. During a 2 year span in the late 90's when rap royalty were releasing some of the best albums in the genre's history (Stankonia, One Day It'll All Make Sense, Supreme Clientele, and Things Fall Apart), Sporty Thievz cashed out, and reduced their legacy to what "No Pigeons" was all along: a cheap laugh and parody of real hip hop.
