KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Roy Scott is a creative person. Music and sports have always been passions of the Kansas City, Missouri, man.

He usually attends a handful of Chiefs games every season and never misses a home playoff game. But this year, the team has limited capacity at Arrowhead Stadium to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The adjustment means Scott won’t be able to attend Thursday’s home opener.

“It’s a family type of environment,” Scott said of his past experiences at Arrowhead. “That’s what we’re really going to miss this year.”

But Scott is finding a way to stay connected to fellow fans. He’s doing it online instead of in person.

Scott has built a following as the founder of Healthy Hip Hop. The organization promotes mental and physical health through music and dance.

Last year, he started a “Chop it Up” series on his social media platforms. He recorded two-minute-long videos analyzing and reviewing the day’s Chiefs game.

This year, he’s working with UClickTV to film the segments in a studio and stream them live on social networks where followers can interact with him.

“I’m going to keep having fun, keep interacting with people, and living it up and making the most of it,” Scott said confidently.

Part of the fun for the father of three (all Chiefs fans, by the way) is creating new music.

Since 2013, he’s made three different Chiefs-themed songs.

Before Thursday’s home opener, he’ll debut his latest song. It uses a soundbite of famed Bay Area-based rapper E-40 trash-talking the Chiefs before the Super Bowl, in which the Chiefs beat the San Fransisco 49ers.

“I was able to do something special with that. I won’t give too much away, but it’s going to be interesting for sure,” Scott teased.

So even without stepping foot at Arrowhead, Scott is ready to be a part of Chiefs Kingdom for the socially distant season.
