Born Maurice Sherrod was born in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn NY, in St. Johns hospital on July 22, 1984 to Priscella and David Sherrod. Growing up in “Do or Die” BedStuy, being the oldest of three children in a household of 13, Moe Chipps is from the “real hood” not the “rap hood”.
Early Life As a child Moe Chipps aspired to play professional basketball. His “handle” was that of Urban Legend and he still revered as a “street ball” legend. He dominated AAU tournaments and was part Paul Robeson PSAL city championship runner team that played in Madison Square Garden, as a freshman. While a standout at sports, Moe was also well known for his dedication to the “block”, which is where he got the name Chipps(for being the first on the block and the last one gone). With the NBA seeming like a distant reality and money on his mind,Chipps decided to forgo his hoop dreams and decided to pursue fortune and fame through another avenue, so he along with his brothers, created 50/50 The Movement Entertainment. Although tied up in illegal activities,which would later results in his incarceration, Chipps was loved by his hood and reciprocated the love by sponsoring youth summer league basketball teams and donating gifts/money to local families in need.
