  2. We knew it was coming, and here it is. The article only mentions her suing Viacom, so I'm wondering if she left TLC, L.A. Reid, and VH1 out of it. http://www.centrictv.com/music/articles/2014/04/28/perri-pebbles-reid-sues-viacom-for-40-mil.html The former manager of TLC sues over portrayal in group's VH1 biopic Justin Dwayne Joseph Posted: 04/28/2014 10:14 AM EDT Perri “Pebbles” Reid---singer and former manager of the R&B trio TLC---is suing Viacom for $40 million over the group's made for cable television biopic. PEBBLES BREAKS SILENCE ON TLC DRAMA, TALKS CHILLI AND L.A. REID AFFAIR In federal documents filed in an Atlanta court on April 25, Reid, 48, claims that the 2013 VH1 movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story portrayed her “as a conniving and dishonest business woman who hoodwinked three innocent girls and exploited their talent for her own personal gain.” PLAYLIST: THE MUSIC OF PERRI "PEBBLES" REID “[Viacom] ignored fundamental canons of journalistic and literary conduct by publishing false and defamatory accusations with actual malice,” states the documents. The lawsuit also states that contrary to what was depicted in the film, Reid never controlled TLC’s lawyers or accountants, never withheld contract terms from group members, and always paid the group what they were owed. WAS PEBBLES SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR TLC'S MONEY PROBLEMS? After selling 11 million copies of their 1994 album CrazySexyCool, TLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, and the late Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes sued LaFace Records and Reid's management company, Pebbitone, claiming they were each paid only $50,000 in 1993 and 1994. A spokesperson for Viacom said, “It’s our policy not to comment on matters in litigation.”
  3. This post goes out to Julie...and the other Left Eye/TLC fans on the board. Some of you know that in 2001, Left Eye tried to release her long awaited solo album, Supernova. The album was a crazy mix of wit and deep lyrics. The sound of the album was all over the place and it challenged listeners, as there isn't any other album like it. Long story short, after releasing it overseas, LA Reid wasn't going to release it in the US until she re-worked it...probably to make it more Hip-Hop or more like a TLC album. Long story short, Left Eye (a fellow stubborn Taurus) wasn't going to change it and LA's actions put her in a loop hole to take her solo project else where (even though LaFace/Arista released all her work with TLC). Instead of simply shopping a label who would have jumped at the chance, she took her connections to Deathrow (through 2Pac, which led to Kurupt and Suge) and signed with them. The plan was to create new music with a completely different vibe, while reworking some of her music from Supernova. She took on a grittier persona, N.I.N.A. Since hardly any new music was recorded, the personality in her music wasn't the different. It was just some of the harder edge of her that could catch glimpses of in some of her previous music. The shocker was when she went on 106 & Park with the Deathrow camp and played this weird character. TLC fans were annoyed, but we had to remember, this was all part of the game she wanted to play with the media. This is the same girl who fell off the face of the earth on purpose and made people she was missing...LOL. This certainly wasn't the real her, which can be seen in the amazing, yet irie Last Days of Left Eye documentary. I don't know that anyone would challenge this being a small part of her personality tho'...this is the girl who burned down her lying, cheating boyfriends house. This is the girl that pulled a gun on Clive Davis when CraZySeXyCOol had made over 75 million dollars, yet each of the girls only had $50,000 each. Anyways, Deathrow finished their work on the N.I.N.A project, but didn't release it since Left Eye's family requested that they didn't. A re-worked version of "Untouchable" with 2Pac was released to radio stations in 2002 but never got much attention. In the end, Left Eye wasn't going to go through with the N.I.N.A. project and was going to focus on new music with TLC before she passed. Anyways, this long intro is just leading up to a leaked version of the N.I.N.A. project. I, personally, really like it. It just captures a different side of her and changes the landscape for Supernova completely. And The Row Hitters actually give her lyrics a nice backdrop. The guests aren't bad either (though a few of them are lifted from Supernova). Check the links below for the leaked album.

  4. Confirmed: Natina Reed (From Group Blaque) Killed In news that can only be deemed the most tragic of tragic, various sources are confirming that singer Natina Reed from R&B group Blaque (center) was killed in Atlanta late last night (October 26th). Details remain sketchy at present, however a number of notable Atlanta figures state that Reed died after being hit by a car as she crossed the street. The car in question is said to have then sped off. Reid, who is survived by 10 year old son Tren Brown (whose father is rapper Kurupt), was just 32. The tragedy will see many look to the untimely passing of TLC’s Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes – who many will remember championed Blaque upon their debut in the late 90′s. Lopes died, aged 30, in a car accident in 2002. Tomorrow would have been Reid’s 33rd birthday. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Natina’s family and friends. SOURCE: http://thatgrapejuic...-blaque-killed/ *************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************** This was depressing news for me to wake up to. I followed Blaque since before they came out. Left Eye would talk about them in all of her interviews, going all the way back to 1997 (2 years before they came out). It was obvious that Left Eye was heavily involved in their career since their style and music formula was petty similar to TLC's. I always admired their harmonies and the fact that they were one of the groups that could genuinely blend Hip-Hop and R-N-B music. Shamari's and Brandi's vocals always blended nicely (along with Natina's...she could sing) and Natina just brought fire every time she rhymed. Like Left Eye in TLC, Natina's abilities to write and rhyme got a little swallowed up in the group atmosphere, but you could see she was a great emcee. Their debut album perfectly captures R-N-B of the very late 90's. The sound of the music, the singing style...it all takes me back to 1999. Having their second album (Blaque Out) and their third album (Tourch) shelved Columbia and Elektra were true injustices. I have copies of both promo and they are both excellent and show some growth between the 2 years that took place between each album. Last year a shorter version of Blaque Out was released as an MP3 album, which was nice to see. However, it had no promotion and I assume was just pushed out for the loyal fans. I didn't know it was released until today when I went to see if there was any music I missed over the years. 808 (Produced by R. Kelly) 808 (Remix) ...this remix (heavily sampling LL Cool J's "Going Back To Cali" got just as many spins as the album version) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHDLFKmPygk I Do featuring Left Eye
