The Yonkers, N.Y., rap group Sporty Thievz is getting airplay in
New York with "No Pigeons," an answer song to TLC's #1 pop hit
"No Scrubs." "No Pigeons" appropriates the sound of the TLC song, which
attacks undesirable men, or "scrubs," but turns around its premise. The
new song begins with the lyrics, "A pigeon is a girl who be walkin' by
... Her feet hurt so you know she want a ride/ But she frontin' like she
can't say 'Hi.' " The track has not been commercially released but is
being played on New York radio station Hot 97.
