In case you haven't  seen or heard, the best selling female group of all time is coming out with a new album and movie in October!  TLC is preparing a massive comeback with a new album in the works and a biopic called CrazySexyCool Story that's premiering on VH1.  “For 10 years we have been mourning the death of our sister Lisa, and although we have discussed the option of bringing in someone to perform with us, it never felt right at the time,” said Chilli. “Watching Lil Mama on the set of our movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story reminded us of Lisa’s spirit, and, for the first time since her passing, we felt everything come together in an organic way.”  Rap-up)

T-Boz added, “Lil Mama’s authentic style, although very different from Lisa’s, got our creative juices flowing. By bringing her in, we will continue to keep TLC’s music alive for a new generation of fans. We are thrilled to be writing this new chapter in the TLC story.” (rap-up)

Check out the trailer below:

Marrying Art and Hip-Hop:

Jay Z did a six-hour performance of "Picasso Baby" at a New York art gallery and it debuted on HBO this past Friday night.  The film, Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film shows the rapper's marathon performance and interactions.  Jigga man took this concept back to the days when hip-hop and art was one.

“The truth is, as far as hip-hop and arts, we were like cousins," Jay Z said. "If you think about those days when Fab Five Freddy was with Madonna and Basquiat and everything. We all went to those clubs, that's when hip-hop was more underground. The arts and hip-hop really partied together. But when art started becoming part of the gallery, it was this separation. But we pretty much came up together." (rollingstone)

He later joined in a debate on community policing with former Rep. Barney Frank. "I don't really want to scare America, but the real problem is there's no middle class," he said. "So the gap between the have and have-nots is getting wider and wider. It's gonna be a problem that no amount of police can solve. Because once you have that sort of oppression and that gap is widening, it's inevitable that something is going to happen." (Rollingstone)
