Description:
Sporty Thievz was a Yonkers, New York hip-hop group, originally a trio, composed of King Kirk (a.k.a. Thieven Stealburg), Big Dubez (a.k.a. Safecracker) and Marlon Bryant (a.k.a. Robin Hood) (1997–2001).

But despite the parody, the group have been acknowledged for their lyrical skill, also making other notable hits such as "Cheapskate", which also has a music video and released under Ruffhouse Records.

In 1998, their album Street Cinema was released on Roc-A-Bloc/Ruffhouse Records. The majority of the production was handled by Ski, famous for his work on Jay-Z's Reasonable Doubt.

This concept would reprise a decade later on rapper Ludacris's 2008 album, Theater Of The Mind.
