Today, July 15, 2015, marks seven years since Terence Vine, known by his stage name Sporty-T, was murdered in his sleep, back on July 15, 2008.

In 1986, Vine was a part of tha New Orleans trio, Ninja Crew, alongside Gregory D & Baby T. They released tha 12" single, We Destroy, that same year on 4 Sight Records.

Vine founded his own label, Sporty Records, and released The Saga Continues on tha label in 1996, and Street Soldier (Respect It Or Check It), which he produced, on Big Boy Records that same year. Two more releases came outta 1997, when Vine dropped Still Goin' On '97 on Sporty Records and Chromed Out on Ruff Era Records. In 2000, Vine was tha producer for New Orleans group, Wet Boys, and their CD, Get Wet.
