About Glenn Toby
MEET GLENN TOBY
During the early ‘80s the cultural phenomenon of hip-hop burst onto the scene and right alongside it, Glenn grabbed the mic and spit more than just a verse or two. Known as ‘Sweety G’ – Glenn began his career rhyming with the likes of Doug E. Fresh, Biz Markie, Treacherous 3, Boogie Boys, Cipher Sounds, Disco Twins, Stetsasonic, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Kurtis Blow, and of course Run DMC
“My first love was always music,” says the emphatic Glenn. “ Just to feel, see and connect with people on another level was incredible in itself.”
GLENN’S CHARACTER AND CONVICTION
“One day I came home from school to find the landlord had evicted us and all our belongings – clothes, books, toys – were strewn in the street,” recounts Glenn. “Suddenly we were homeless. For a long time we rotated among relatives . . . staying here and there for as long as we could. It was a frightening time for me and my siblings, but it was also an enormous lesson in real character development and personal integrity.”
Perhaps, it is this sense of character and conviction that earn him the trust of over 50 NFL players such as Asante Samuel, Josh Evans, Damien Robinson and Chester Taylor. Via his company, Infinite Sports Technology, Glenn and his partner Alonzo Shavers provide a full scale of client services which include contract negotiations, publicity, marketing and legal assistance. And while negotiating these peripheral contracts for his well-established athletes, Glenn still finds time to shape the musical careers of artists such as, Saigon, Tru Life, Q Da Kid.
As a former member of the LL Cool J management team, the multifaceted businessman is able to provide the proper guidance and support for an aspiring emcee already earning the respect of everyone from 50 Cent to Doug E Fresh.
Perhaps Glenn’s own words best summarize a man with a cadre of success and blessings: “I’m a firm believer in living in Hope and Faith. Hope is desire accompanied by expectation, and Faith is the substance of things hoped for. Hope keeps us believing in the tomorrows, that tomorrow will be a better day, and Faith puts it all in God’s hand.”
Mr. Toby contributed a chapter in “The Souls of My Brothers; Black Men Break Their Silence, Tell Their Truths, and Heal Our Spirits”, a book edited by Dawn Marie Daniels and Candace Sandy. A collaboration of excerpts written by several distinct African American males, the book provides insight into the hardships and eventual epiphany of the men who surpassed all odds.
