YAAAAASSSSS GAWD!!!! Now as apart of your Library homework last week, you guys were to watch TV One’s “Unsung-Xscape”! And if you didn’t!!! You missed a mess! It was so informative and messy to say the least! But lets just get into what had happened was!
So if your too young to know who Xscape is then you probably shouldn’t be reading this! No shade just saying cause you cant vibe with us 25+ people! (like I didn’t just turn 25 last month) But anyway the episode went to the back backs of Xscape and talked about how there were originally 5 member’s until they kicked one girl to the curve, Destiny Child style! Then they had the remaining 4 members! And now I actually know the other two names Tameka, Toscha, Kandi and Tiny! Now apparently everything was all well and good for the first album! You know “KICK OF YA SHOES AND RELAX YA FEET! PARTY ON DOWN TO THE XSCAPE BEAT”! Yes they was getting their lives and giving it too! Now here’s what went down! Kandi was basically the lead for the first album until the next album when they decided to take on a new direction and Tameka ended up pregnant and the big people was trying to replace her but her and Toscha are sisters and she said, “well if my sister is going then im going”!
So second album comes around, you still pregnant and doing music videos 7 months pregnant! And was giving life!!! But tension started rising between the girls when other girls wanted to take leads on songs and if you ask me, Kandi wasn’t having it so she went left. Then Toscha randomly decided that her name was Beyoncé and wanted to go do a solo deal! Which all the more divided the group to the point where everybody was just co-existing!!! By album number three everybody was OVER IT!!! Kandi signed over her rights to the group! Tiny went and married TI (which allegedly when she got with him he began to increase the divide that already existed) Toscha and Tameka went and started a day care and the Tameka went and did some plays with Tyler Perry!!!
DO YA’LL REMEMBER KANDI’S SOLO CAREER?! It’s OK not many people do, but she had that one song that was MY JAM and i didn’t even know it was her until they played it on the episode! Go get on YouTube and search “Don’t Think I’m Not Kandi Burress” and get ya life!
All in all the episode was nothing more than a big blame game as to who broke the group up! Was it Tameka and her baby? Toscha and her solo plans. Kandi and her selfish ways. Or Tiny and TI?! If you ask me, ITS KANDI FAULT! Had Kandi not hit that whistle note on “Understanding” the group would still be together! After she did that, they was like, we’ll shit she don’t need us! You know I love you Kandi wit yo boring ass! But you sing that ass off for the girls and they just did you wrong!!!
Anywho if you watched leave a commenand be sure to take the poll on who think is to blame for the breakup of one of the greatest girl groups of the 90s Xscape!
