They once had the world quite literally at their feet. However, doomed solo and duo runs have seen the boys from B2K teetering on the border of Pop oblivion.
So, in adhering to the Industry 101 (see: three flops are better than one), the group (Omarion, J-Boog, and Lil Fizz) have reunited for a new project of sorts. And while little is known beyond the fact they recently recorded together (see: shot above), one things is certain: controversial member Raz-B will not feature.
Indeed, many will remember Raz’s shocking revelations, which left lead singer Omarion none-too-impressed. Remember this…
After the hysteria that ensued following Raz-B’s shocking molestation claims (and the subsequent retraction of them), I thought that spelled the end of the B2K reality show/re-launch. It appears I was mistaken ,as yet another preview for the show hit the net recently. Check it out:
All I can say is WHOAH! I’m assuming this was the drama that went down after Raz-B lifted the lid on the bogusness of Chris Stokes. J-Boog and Lil’ Fizz were heated. I’m really hoping this gets picked up by a major network or, at the very least, is aired in some capacity. This is unmissable TV.
Check out the third preview of B2K’s forthcoming reality show:
Watching this back really reminded me of how badly Chris Stokes screwed them over; Omarion comes across kinda wrong too. I’m actually hoping these guys make something of themselves with this comeback – if only just show that you can’t hold people down with such shady tactics.
It appears the guys formerly of B2K (sans Omarion) are serious about putting out a reality show. Check out another teaser clip of the show below, in which Omarion, former manager Chris Stokes and the ‘B2K’ name rights are discussed:
This actually seems like it’ll be a good watch. Aside from the obvious strained relations with Omarion, it’ll be interesting to see how they plan on making a comeback.
As many of you by now Kanye West’s mother, Dr. Donda West, sadly passed away over the weekend. West was 58. Whilst no official word has been given on the cause of death, some reports have cited ‘complications from cosmetic surgery’. Check out the reports below, both via TMZ:
A plastic surgeon refused to perform plastic surgery on Dr. Donda West because he thought there was a risk of a heart attack. Dr. Andre Abolian told her she needed to get clearance from an internist but Dr. West went ahead with a tummy tuck and breast reduction without the co-sign from the internist.
The fire service were called to Ms West’s residence, following a 911 call:
A hospital spokesperson tells TMZ that an unresponsive West was brought to their ER around 8:00 PM Saturday night. They attempted to resuscitate her, but were unsuccessful. She was pronounced dead around 8:30 PM that night.
Whatever the cause, this really is sad. When I heard the news on Saturday, I was in shock. Evidently Kanye and Donda were close and it’s probably near impossible to identify with what he’s going through right now. Having been in London when he received the news, I can’t help but think what the plane journey home must have been like for him. My condolences go out to the entire West family. RIP Dr. Donda West.
It appears yet another defunct group are jumping on the reality show bandwagon in hopes of resurrecting their careers – this time it’s B2K. Before I continue, I’m literally cracking up right now at the ‘realty show’ spelling – very professional lol. About the trailer, it was pretty interesting to see the guys back together, as well as the hinting at there still being unresolved issues with Omarion. Saying that, this kinda screams desperation to me; none of the group, aside from Omarion, have achieved any solo success. Hmmm…
In a recent interview with Chicago’s Power 92 radio station, former B2K star Lil Fizz spoke on life after the group and his forthcoming solo project. During the interview, Fizz was asked flat out whether former band member Raz B was gay. Evidently taken aback by the bluntness of the question, Fizz replied ‘I don’t think it’s my place to answer that question’. Click here to listen to the audio
I doubt this will come as a surprise to many. With reported sightings of Raz at numerous ‘guy’ clubs and an appearance on ‘Noah’s Arc’ (a black gay drama), rumors about his sexuality have been circulating for months. Though I doubt Fizz did it deliberately (the B2K guys are apparently cool with each other now), it’s kind of ironic that the confirmation(ish) came from him.
