Swiperboy has left the building.
Tennessee senior forward Renaldo Woolridge, better known by his rapping moniker “Swiperboy,” will no longer be spitting rhymes on the side. He announced his retirement from the rap game on his personal blog.
Woolridge has had a number of popular songs, including a remix of the Vols’ famous “Rocky Top.” Most recently, he honored the troops with “USA Troops (Thank You) – aka Bin Laden is Gone” in May.
A 6-foot-8 forward, Woolrigde hasn’t done much on the hardwood – never averaging more than 3.4 points in his three seasons. His motivation is unclear, but Woolridge did say that he’s fed up with the music industry because he feels that many artists with less talent have made it while he’s struggled.
Of course, retirements in rap are about as permanent as Hollywood marriages, so there’s still hope.
