What is Spyda's World?
Spyda’s World is a diversified assortment of business expenditures including Spyda’s World Academy, Spyda’s World Cares Foundation, and Spyda’s World Entertainment founded by Dennis “Spyda” Chism. Spyda’s name is synonymous with the AND1 Streetball Mixtape Tour. He is known for his scoring and signature dunk where he hangs upside down on the rim like Spiderman in addition to his “Bump & Run” and “Killer Cross” .
In 2004, Spyda returned back on the tour, clutching the competition and became the 1st contestant winner as a part of the third season of “Street Ball” on ESPN 1 and 2. He was posted as a tremendous summer highlight because of his dunking ability that year and was selected and presented with a AND1 jersey at the last game in Washington, DC by the Mixtape players to become the newest member on the team. In between touring Spyda played professionally in the ABA (American Basketball Association) for the Las Vegas Rattlers and the Boston Frenzy, under Joe “Jellybean” Bryant, who is also the father of late L.A. Lakers legend, Kobe Bryant. While under his authority, Spyda was mentored into becoming a pro-combo guard. Spyda joined forces with other streetball companies such as: Ball4Real, AND1, and S.K.Y. Milestone accomplishments for Spyda would consist of him clinching sponsorship deals with Gatorade and Sprite on his AND1 int’l tours, making him the youngest and first African American to have his image on the Gatorade bottles in China.
