Jagged Edge Tour Dates
Lets keep it 100
The state of R&B is in really bad shape,most of all the mainstream outlets are now ran by younger people who know very little about true R&B, and don’t really care,this is forcing artist to stop doing what they love,stop writing great songs,stop singing and wanting to be rappers,or at least do rapper like things,
When I post about new music,most of the comments I get are,jd bring back that good shit,instead of all this BS on the radio,
With that being said,All of you that feel this way,all of you that love great music,I ain’t to proud to beg lol,I’m begging you, pls pick up this new JE album,and help us restore the feeling, 10/27
After taking a long break Charles Hamilton is gearing up for his comeback with the release of his new record called Correct.
“What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.”
‘Creep’ became the first of four top five Hot 100 hits that helped make the trio’s ‘CrazySexyCool’ the biggest-selling album by a female pop group in history, but bankruptcy – and worse – were looming.
IN 1995, THE FUTURE LOOKED BRIGHT for TLC. After a string of five Billboard Hot 100 hits that began with its debut 1992 single, “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg,” the Atlanta-based trio – rapper Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, 23, and singers Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, 24, and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, 24 – topped the chart for the first time on Jan. 28, 1995 with the slinky cheating anthem “Creep.”
The track, one of four top five hits from TLC’s second album, CrazySexyCool, helped make it the biggest-selling album by a female pop group in history, moving 7.6 million copies, according to Nielsen Music.
The record’s success didn’t translate to a financial windfall for the group, however. In July 1995, while TLC was at No. 1 with the third single from CrazySexyCool, “Waterfalls,” the group filed for bankruptcy, declaring liabilities of more than $3.5 million. When a settlement was reached in 1996, Billboard called the bankruptcy “eye-opening” and reported that “the numbers reflected the byzantine accounting practices of labels.”
TLC released its third album, FanMail, in February 1999, earning a Grammy Award nomination for album of the year and producing two more Hot 100 No. 1s: “No Scrubs” and “Unpretty.” It would mark the last album released during Lopes’ lifetime. On April 25, 2002, she died at age 30 in a car crash in Honduras. In the wake of the tragedy, Thomas and Watkins released a statement saying they had “truly lost our sister.” They have continued to perform as TLC and are working on new music.

Ten-year-olds armed to the teeth and trained to kill in the name of Islam: Boko Haram release images of their child soldiers being trained in Nigeria
Nigerian terror group Boko Haram is training child soldiers how to use semi-automatic weapons.
The group has released pictures showing more than a dozen children posing with, and learning how to aim, AK-47′s.
The images appear to have been taken in northern Nigeria where Boko Haram has committed most of its attacks.
They were published online by Al Urwa al Wuthaqa, a media group that has been associated with the insurgents, and come months after Human Rights Watch warned that boys and girls kidnapped by the terrorist group were being used during their attacks.
Just days ago Boko Haram were suspected of kidnapping at least 30 children, including girls as young as 11, in a village north of the country. A week earlier the terrorists snatched around 40 women in Adamawa State
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch spent the few minutes he was on the podium at Tuesday’s Super Bowl media day saying, over and over again, “I’m just here so I won’t get fined.”
Unfortunately, for Lynch, showing up wasn’t the only criteria. Sources tell ESPN that, after the Super Bowl, the league will review whether the hat Lynch wore during the event, which bears his “Beast Mode” logo, was permissible. If the NFL rules that Lynch used media day to promote a brand that was not approved by the league, he could face a significant fine. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy declined to comment.
The NFL makes clear to players that they cannot wear brands that conflict with league partners on the field during games and during postgame interviews. That is extended to Super Bowl media day, where a record number of cameras are on the players.
That’s why the league fined Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher $100,000 for wearing a Vitaminwater hat on his podium during Super Bowl XLI in 2007. The league had, and still has, an official drink deal with Pepsi, which also owns Gatorade.
Lynch’s Beast Mode hat was selling on the clothing line’s website and advertised as “the hat Marshawn wore during the 2015 SB Media Day.” The hat, which costs $33, sold out and the site noted this morning that it was hoping to restock it as soon as possible. Lynch owns four trademarks to the phrase “Beast Mode” and has filed for three additional trademarks with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
The league frowns on players using what is considered a league event to promote something that it has not approved. And despite Lynch’s short time on the podium on Tuesday, he certainly got a lot of free advertising from news clips and social media showing the hat throughout the day.
Lynch’s situation isn’t exactly parallel to Urlacher’s in that Lynch wasn’t wearing a brand that competes with a league sponsor. The hat is made by New Era, which is the official hat of the NFL.
Lynch is no stranger to fines. In November, he was fined $50,000 for not talking to the media and another $50,000 that was being withheld by the league from the 2013 season that was contingent upon his future cooperation with the press. Lynch was also fined $11,050 for grabbing his crotch after a touchdown in a late December game against the Arizona Cardinals. He was fined $20,000 for doing the same thing in the NFC Championship Game.
Online sportsbook Sportsbook.com had a prop bet on whether Lynch would get fined for media day. The odds of that happening were set at 8-to-1, but the sportsbook lowered odds significantly after bets came in heavy for Lynch to get docked.
