Bryan Scott


Brandon Lloyd and Bryant McKinnie Among Players To Learn Business of Music At Clive Davis Institute

The NFL and NFLPA have lots of programs running to help NFL players develop their lives and interest outside of football. Their office of player engagement has partnered with the Clive Davis Institute which is part of NYU’s Tisch’s School of Music to boot on a bootcamp for 20 current and former NFL players including the Rams Brandon Lloyd and the Baltimore Ravens’ Bryant McKinnie. Also, Bryant Scott who I interviewed a few months ago when his single Dedicated was released on itunes.

I was vaguely aware of Lloyd’s interest in rapping back when he was a Redskin. You can check out his old myspace page here  and see him getting his freestyle on via this MTV2 Sucka Free clip. McKinnie owns his own record label and frequently tweets about the label and his artists. Here he is talking about why he started the label.
