COLUMBIA, S.C. — Tina Roy once dropped dimes for the Gamecocks. Now she's dropping rhymes for the Richland County Sheriff's Department.
Roy is the writer and performer in a new video called "RCSD Proud." It's an original song that she created.
Roy is a former member of the South Carolina Gamecocks women's basketball team, playing under coach Dawn Staley from 2011 to 2016. While she was with the team, she did a rap video for the team.
Since she graduated, she's gone on to become a Richland County deputy. But her new boss, Sheriff Leon Lott, remembered the previous video, and asked her to do one for his department.
She got to work, and with the help of Kyle Hayden from Hayden Media Company, they produced a music video.
In the nearly three minute long clip, there are plenty of deputies, and a few cameos (you may notice her former coach in there), and plenty of shots of law enforcement on patrol. Oh, and there's a Live PD lyric for fans of that show.
