GET ACQUAINTED WITH SLOPPY COPIES
N.A.B.: What brought about the name Sloppy Copies? Is there a meaning behind it, other than the immediate thought?
SC: Sloppy Copies Productions first started as our own Music Production Company and were in a group called Alias 69 back in the late 90's. A group that consisted of three members: King Honz, Chickenwing and Mr. Bris. The meaning behind the name is simple. While making a track one day as we always did, we burned a copy of it and something went wrong because this time it came out sloppy. At the same time we were trying to come up with a name for our music production, King Honz said let's call the company Sloppy Copies Productions. As trendsetters we do things differently anyway so why not be the total opposite of our name. There's nothing but pure Hip Hop, raw, original beats coming out of Sloppy Copies Productions Studio so we go against the grain and dare to be different. The name stands out the company stands out that's what trendsetters do.
N.A.B.: When and what initiated the start of being a media representative?
SC: As the music production grew we knew we were missing something else to make this production company complete. So only about a year ago we got into directing and editing music videos, conducting exclusive interviews, shooting and editing behind the scenes footage of concerts and after parties. we also do red carpet events, filming positive movements such as Operation Save Our City in Philly, and much more. We inquired with other video crews at one time to shoot music videos for us but we quickly realized they couldn't see what we saw. No one has visuals like us so we went for it ourselves, purchased some cameras and produced, shot and edited our first video called "Greatness" artist Live J5. Shortly after that we added "The Visuals" to our name: Sloppy Copies Productions "The Visuals." We enjoy making music, doing videos and always looking for more fun and exciting events to film. Our motto is "we can show you better than we can tell you be prepared to be visualize It's The Visuals".

SC: Sloppy Copies Productions, The Visuals is a family owned company the representatives are Founder - King Honz (John Brown) CEO - Mrs. CEO Chicken Wing (Yolanda Brown)
N.A.B.: Elaborate on the benefit(s) of being represented by your media face.
SC: The benefits of being a media representative is the fact that everyone gets to visualize the work we put into every footage and show it all over the world. It's like getting the feeling of being right there seeing it with us. The benefit of being able to show our talent to the world by getting some of the Raw, Uncut, Behind The Scenes, footage and go where no other Video Crew dares to go. The benefit of meeting people who show love, who loves music, who has something they wanna share with the world. The benefit of showing that Sloppy Copies Productions, The Visuals eat, sleep, and shit Hip Hop. Finally the benefit of showing the world that we are Philly's #1 Video Crew.
