It's been about 2 year's since TLC announced a FINAL album and 2 year's since their INFAMOUS Kickstarter campaign and finally we think the album is coming out this SUMMER!
We didn't think it would happen. WE ALL saw the Xscape 'Unsung'. Tensions were HIGH and FEELINGS were raw, but Xscape has REUNITED!!!
In today's society, it is imperative that we instill in our youth that they can excel and do just about anything they set their mind's and hearts to. One does not have to confine themselves to one lane or one area of expertise. We can excel in many areas. A perfect example of this type of thinking comes in the form of Paul Robeson. Robeson was an African American concert singer (bass-baritone), recording artist, athlete and actor who became noted for his political radicalism and activism in the civil rights movement. The son of an escaped slave, Robeson was the first major concert star to popularize the performance of Negro spirituals and was the first black actor of the 20th century to portray Shakespeare's Othello alongside an all white cast.
'Hip Hop Squares' is MOVING to VH1!!!! Coming MARCH 13th, executive-produced by Ice Cube and HOSTED by comedian Deray Davis--this new VERSION is bringing the FUNNY and BRINGING the STAR POWER!! Take a LOOK!
HAPPY FAT TUESDAY!!
WAKE UP and get your MARDI GRAS on!!!
Since it's FAT TUESDAY, let's TAKE to the N.O. with Mystikal!!! Get your CARNIVAL ON!!!
HAPPY MARDI GRAS EVERYBODY!!!
Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday, referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which begins on Ash Wednesday. The day is sometimes referred to as Shrove Tuesday, from the word shrive, meaning "confess."
Mardi Gras, like Christmas, is a whole season - not just one day. That being said, Fat Tuesday is the biggest day of celebration, and the date it falls on moves around. You'll find that Fat Tuesday can be any Tuesday between Feb. 3 and March 9. Carnival celebration starts on Jan. 6, the Twelfth Night (feast of Epiphany), and picks up speed through midnight on Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday.
How do you know which Tuesday it will be?
Ash Wednesday is always 46 days before Easter, and Fat Tuesday is always the day before Ash Wednesday. Easter can fall on any Sunday from March 23 to April 25, with the exact date to coincide with the first Sunday after the full moon following a spring equinox. There you have it. Voila! If you're still confused, get out a calendar that has the holidays printed on it. Fat Tuesday is always the day before Ash Wednesday!

It has its ups and downs and everything, but I felt like it showed the human side of what goes on behind things, something that I see with all of my friends… I felt like it was kind of interweaved in the music culture.”
