Many athletes have attempted to cross over from sports to music careers. Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Deion Sanders, and Allen Iverson, to name a few, but none have been nominated for a Grammy. Now setting the bar is former NBA and collegiate standout, Moe Ager. Raised in a musical family in the city of Motown, Detroit, Michigan, former All-­American Michigan State, Team USA and NBA (Dallas Mavericks, New Jersey Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves) player, Moe Ager, is making his mark combining the two worlds of sports and music. After being considered for a Grammy Award for his single, “Far from Home,” and acknowledged as the independent producer of the year for the Entrepreneurs on the Move Award, he continues to perfect his musical talent while lending his expertise in basketball and music through the Moe Ager Hoop Schools. Additionally, through his music production company, Moe Ager Productions, he has produced records for Royce da 59 (Shady Records where he collaborated with Dr. Dre who gave him advice and guidance), signed a non­-exclusive deal with 5050/Konvict, and Muzik. Today, he works with emerging artists and corporations, producing music that shapes their brands and communicates their identity.

Alongside these skills, Ager brings formidable life skills from growing up in the martial arts since he was 6 years old, playing as a standout on a winning team in college and a member of the world class USA basketball team. Today, he speaks, sharing his knowledge with youth as well as adults, at the Moe Ager Hoop School, educational institutions and corporate offices. Moe Ager and Moe Ager Productions strikes the perfect chord to blending sports, music and technology through In the Zone with Moe Ager.

Meet Moe Ager

Sports and Music​ are like favorite cousins. They play very well together. From genres such as country and rock to hip-­hop/rap and urban contemporary, athletes listen to music to release the pressure of competition. It is part of a psychological effort to reach peak performance and be at the top of their game. Many professional sports teams such as the Seattle Seahawks and the New York Jets, blast the beats of hip­-hop/rap dee jays on sidelines during practices to keep the adrenaline running. At the grassroots, street basketball leagues and consumer driven game marketers such as Playstation and NBA2K are combining music, fashion and basketball moves with theme songs produced by popular artists that include Pharrell and Beyonce. Whether its singing or dancing in the stands to music turned sport anthems, fans get in game mode during pre­game and halftime activities, following the frenzy of their favorite athlete’s passion for music.

Music plays an integral role with influencing the performance of athletes. To put them “In the Zone, athletes listen to their choice of songs to boost their adrenaline. Music is played individually and collectively hyping locker rooms and exciting fans in sports stadiums and arenas. Pumping up athletes and fans are tunes from artists Rihana and Lady Gaga to Drake and Kanye West. Many artists are finding sports a major sales booster and artists such as, country’s, Darius Rucker, and hip-­hop artists providing commentary on ESPN, music has become a major contributor.
