Xscape Sign Management Deal With Vince Herbert

Published: Friday 1st Dec 2017 by Sam

Xscape continue to make major moves on their comeback campaign.

With a TV show, tour, and biopic under their belts, the group are turning their attention to music – the first fruit of which arrived today in the form of songs ‘Dream Killa’ and ‘Wifed Up.’

And it appears that’s just a taste of what’s to come, because the R&B ensemble have tapped Vince Herbert as to shepherd their musical endeavours moving forward.

Details below…

Speaking exclusively to Hip-Hollywood, Tiny, Tamika, and LaTocha revealed that they’ve hired the well-known exec as their manager.

Explaining that Mona Scott Young will continue managing Xscape’s TV and film endeavours, they confirm that Herbert (famed for his work with Lady Gaga, ex Tamar Braxton, and more recently Remy Ma) will handle all things music.

Tamika said of the partnership:

“We sat down with him, had some food and just talked, like how most business takes place, he just got our vision and he saw the potential in us”

Tiny added:

“We love what he did with Tamar and Lady Gaga and we also knew he understood the business. We’re really excited.”


Elaborating on what’s coming next, the ladies (who won’t be joined by Kandi due to her commitments outside the group) confirm that they’re readying an EP.

LaTocha said of the creation process:

“We’ve been working with Tricky Stewart, and the songs are really amazing. We worked really hard. We recorded six songs, in like six days.”


Interesting….on  number of fronts.

The ladies are clearly passionate about making new music part of their reunion push; and thus far, we’re liking what we’re hearing. Fingers crossed Vince (who is very capable) can help steer the trio to the successes they seek.

From where we’re standing, another season of their show (or a new show entirely) would be the smartest move to support their fresh material.

Either way, we’re willing to give them a chance. Are you?

    I support 100%

  2. Lake Erie December 1, 2017

    Wow! Ok I see you Vince! He definitely making some money moves out here I see. I hope things don’t become messy with this deal.. I know business is business but, you never know nowadays…

  3. Electrikblue December 1, 2017

    I guess.. love the new song Dream Killa. But with what’s going on with Tamar and Vince i wouldn’t want to work with him in that capacity. Maybe Tamar doesn’t care but i thought her and Tiny were friends.

      • Regina Blanchard December 2, 2017

        I dont think it will be the same with 3 can you find another girl to replace Kandi some it will still be four thete a lot of good. Female songer out there ?

      • Djuan December 2, 2017


    • Melval December 2, 2017

      I think the story that I just read said tomorrow was Vince’s ex. But, anyhow it makes sense that this group would come to Vince considering Tamar and Tiny are back friends I’m sure they got the friend discount from vince. VH is a silent empire anyway…..

    • Vera G Arrington December 3, 2017

      I hope they go really far, Kandi not stopping no show. Vince is great for them.

  4. Ocean December 1, 2017

    I think people are giving Vince too much …he had other artists that he didn’t do anything with which is why he owe Sony money

  5. The Wig Snatcher December 1, 2017

    I guess that means Tamar’s and Tiny’s (along with Kandi’s) friendship is over. You know Tay-Tay is always in her feelings and is petty.

    • Margaret Williams December 2, 2017

      I am excited to see Xcape up and Kicking. I am very hurt that Kandy will not be a part of this journey, I know she has a lot of irons in the fire outside of the group and I wish her a success and the best for her and her family. I will be following you also Kandy.

      • JazyB December 3, 2017

        Me too.

  6. The Wig Snatcher December 1, 2017

    Only if SWV and En Vogue had the best management teams behind them by now, my dream of all my favorite 90’s girl groups slaying all the way through today would come true.

  7. Diane moore-eubanks December 1, 2017

    Great chouce

  8. Loonchiesmom December 1, 2017

    So, do u guys now know how Tamar’s mom is NOT being truthful! If Vincent Herbert was a woman beater, do u believe that Tiny of all people, would sign w/ him as her manager? Let alone Remy Ma? No one would do business w/ this man. Xscape has 2 of the best managers in the game working for the good of their careers. That’s smart & epic! Congrats ladies!

    • Tree December 2, 2017

      ABSOLUTELY NOBODY knows what goes on behind closed doors..whether hes abusive or not has nothing to do with him being a manager comeon that sounds ridiculous

  9. Linda allen December 1, 2017

    I wish kandi burruss would make new with them but if she don’t do it they can make there on music without her but sh

  10. DanYiel Iman December 1, 2017

    I purchased “Dream Killa” I’m a fan of Kandi & the songs are missing her lower tones…??‍♂️

  11. Rose Duncan December 1, 2017

    Love Xscape with all four lady’s. Hope new music without Kandi is as good. Because I just love her in the group
    I will be waiting to see.

  12. Michelle December 1, 2017

    I. Bet Mrs Tamar will a new plan on how to make her marriage work.very proud of. The escape girls run vince you will find somebody that love you for you not what you got

    • LaVern Camacho December 1, 2017

      I totally agree. I never seeher show any live or affection toward her so called baby daddy.

  13. Elijah Shears Holley December 1, 2017

  16. Sharon December 1, 2017

    I LOVED XSCAPE before and I’m anxiously. awaiting their return! The sky is the limit!

  17. Angel coleman December 1, 2017

    are you all really moving on with kandi or is she still part of the group

  18. LaTonya December 1, 2017

    Xscape can barely sing their previous songs. Their voices are not what it use to be.They should just stick to making money off of the old music while touring.

    • Tyrone Mckinney December 2, 2017

      Your drunk fool!! They sang their butts off for 40+ yr. Old w women. Dont go there how old is yo ugly spirited ass??say??

  19. Deborah Ross December 1, 2017

    I think Kandi was a fool to leave the group. Vince Herbert and Mona Scott in your corner, big bucks.

  20. Tyrone Mckinney December 2, 2017

    Xscape yall are so talented musically, spiritually and parentally!! So important!! Thank you for giving us the fans more than enough to support and love yall more!! Keep striving… Yes without kandi… Holla!!!

  21. Veronica T December 2, 2017

    Well I love Xscape, and have nothing bad to say very sad Candy won’t be a part of her creation but the show must go on. By chance if there looking for a replacement come holla at your gurlll. Me.

  22. Debra Haley December 2, 2017

    I think these ladies are very smart. And made a good decision hiring Vincent Herbert as their manager! They all are very talented!

  23. Simonia MeChelle December 2, 2017

    “I feel they make Boss Moves, they keep loyalty amongst they’re peers.” “It’s a beautiful blessing!” “God i Amazing, I love It, So Awesome!” “Mona Scott, & Vincent straight lace wit no chase gettnit It! ? #muchlove ❤

    • Simonia MeChelle December 2, 2017

      Their & Is.

  24. karen williams-coursey December 2, 2017

    Not interested in XScape music without Kandi

  25. Tish December 2, 2017

    Kandi want everything to be about her she wants to lead ans not be a team player she this will be a hit with her ass its her way are noway and i like kandi but she is just out of control from housewives to this tiny yall do yall thing and pray for yall sister cus she need it

    • Lady Kim December 2, 2017

      Kandi doesn’t want everything she has enough. Why forsake your life, family and health out of greed. I am proud of Kandi for attempting to keep balance in her life. She has done well for herself financially and now is the time to stay focus on what is more important, family. She has enough money and responsibilties why bring on more. The public needs to chill out on Kandi.

  26. Juzcookie December 2, 2017

    Excape is nothing…irrelevant without Kandi Kane!! They are broke and.NEEDED Kandi thats why they went crawling and.begging. So.glad Kandi.pulled.out bc that Larosha think.she know everything and wants to run the show but what you been.doing all these years?? Kandi been getting cpins the whole time!!

  27. Dupri duh December 2, 2017

    WHy not work with Jermaine???

  28. Julie December 2, 2017

    Wow! You all look great, sound the same when you sing. I’m glad y’all back! # Kandi & Tiny still got it on lock for being the best all around ( Prettiest, most humble & kind, genuine, honest, and just real).# Just my opinion everyone has one.

  29. Nicky December 2, 2017

    I just watched their performance in Nashville Tennessee, and I must say the whole show was better than I expected. They were awesome!! Xscape as a whole, yes they are great together, but after what I heard with my ears and saw with my eyes I think that they will do well minus one. Khandi is great and I luv the passion she shows in what she does. And I admire her strong business mind.

  30. Kei December 2, 2017

    Bad idea. I see a mess coming.

  31. Ann December 2, 2017

    Xscape is a fantastic group with or without Candy. Understood Candy can’t no longer work with the ladies due to her successful endeavors. Wishing her and Xscape only the best. ?

  32. Gloria Smith-Matthews December 2, 2017

    It is good that Escape is moving forward in spite of Kandi Burris not performing and recording with them. This is not uncommon because in most groups, someone chooses to go solo. Plus, one m***** don’t stop a show, and two does not carry it on. Therefore, good luck to the Escape. You all sound great, and Vincent Hebert has done great work. Look how he developed Tamar, Toni, Lady GaGa, and others. Yes, life goes on. Kandi is doing well, and now, the others need to expand their brand.

  33. Crystal Duke December 2, 2017

    Life is short smell the roses while their scent is fresh

  34. Paula Woodard December 2, 2017

    Yes I am glad they went on to continue with the group even without Kandy. I like Kandy but from her lil remarks she made during the sitcom she’s financially stable so shes not too concern about them “Cuss they need the money”. Whats wrong with that picture. Congratulations Escape and I hope you all make as much money as Kandy and you can because you 3 have beautiful voices you can always hire a bass singer!

    • Mj Monroe December 2, 2017

      Yeesss!!! My exact thoughts!!

  35. Shalet December 2, 2017

    Good luck……..not a fan

  36. Micki December 2, 2017

    Wow…It’s all for publicity. Toni, Lady Gaga, Tamar, and Mindless Behavior dropped him…Remy Ma and Xscape will soon follow….

  37. Mj Monroe December 2, 2017

    I love that thr moving forward.. don’t like nobody stop your dream! Kandi acts so entitled and I knew she was going to do this! Keep pushing ladies bc Kandi can’t sing anyways.. We’re just use to seeing her but we can tune into housewives bc I like her better when she’s not yelling on stage anyways!

  38. Guila Ricks December 2, 2017

    I’m am happy for the ladies as well as Vincent Herbert. Mr. Herbert I see your vision for your health and I just want to say stay healthy, stay positive and stand in your truth because that’s all that matters. Escape I’m ecstatic for you all. Hold your head up, bring the music and enjoy yourselves while you’re doing it. GREAT combination of this collaboration.

  39. TP December 2, 2017

    I’m not saying this to be shady or rude, but please get a copy editor. XSCAPE is singular, not plural as you are treating it in the article. So, for example, the article should read XSCAPE continues instead of XSCAPE continue. Again, not being shady. I just want you to be successful and proper grammar will help.

  40. Tomesia Watson December 2, 2017

    I feel Xscape will do great without Kandi. Your career and blessings is not built on Kandi. She don’t want to be apart of the group anymore so do you. I support it and feel the group will be outstanding.

  41. Paula Vieira December 2, 2017

    I love the group Xscape and i am ready for the new songs I and really proud of all of the ladies

  42. Natalie December 2, 2017

    Loving it! So very glad they got back together! Excited!

  43. Carmen Vasquez December 2, 2017

    That’s sounds great so excited about there come back , hoping Kandi would at least be there for future appearences on stage from time to time. That would be a plus for the fans like me. Cause seeing them all brings me back to some great times when life was so much easier especially with there music during that time..

  46. Donita December 2, 2017

    I attended the show in Virginia and the ladies did a great job. I’m glad they are doing new music and moving forward without Kandi. Kandi is a great businesswoman but it seems like she can’t let go of the past issues and in some ways feels above the other ladies. They have chosen a great team to work with and I’m sure they will have more great hits!!

  47. Deborah December 2, 2017

    Go for it. I M tired of watching the same shows but different cities.
    Nice to see a reality show with a purpose and a light wait taste of purpose to re:commit you ART.

  48. Laura Bullock December 2, 2017


  49. stephanie F smith December 2, 2017

    I think it’s a great thing! Honestly Kandi may know the business side but vocally she was holding you all back recently. Her voice was just not as confident as the others.

  50. Sharon Sorsby December 2, 2017

    I think it’s amazing, always loved Escape! Now they can pick up where they left off! I’m sure they’ll do well.

  51. Niknik December 2, 2017

    This is gonna be like Destiny’s child coming back without Beyonce it’s going to be a mess but theses ladies do deserve success! Wish Kandi would have went with the flow!! ??

  52. Alaias December 2, 2017

    Sounds exciting, but they won’t make it without Kandi! Not can she be replaced! Sooooo!!!

  53. Veatrice Allen December 2, 2017

    Vincent you have to the Lord
    Jesus Christ first in life and family. The Lord had me praying for you guys before started things started happening. He is answer and help. Ask Him to show you got to keep praying and follow what He show you to do. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He knows your story.

  54. Johnel gibson December 2, 2017

    I am a huge huge fan of Xscape I’ve grown even more excited about their return since they’re touring. However, I’m very very disappointed that kandi will not be recording for the rest of the group. Besides latocha Scott her voice is one of the most identifiable voices that helped create Xscape’s sound in the first place. Looking at you with the crooked eye kandi SMH

  55. Kimberly December 2, 2017

    Hey I’m so excited for the ladies, they are going places straight to the top, you have a fantastic manager all the luck to you ladies looking forward to the ladies coming back to Detroit.

  56. Deb December 2, 2017

    Love it.

  57. Ms Ponce Turner December 2, 2017

    No other words needed

  58. Kee December 2, 2017

    I think Kandi should be apart of the group!! Its not gonna be Xscape without Kandi! They should prob change their name if she’s not gonna be apart of it! I love the real Xscape, the originals! Please Kandi stay with the group, its not Xscape w/o you!! PLEEEEASE, come back Kandi, we want you ALL, not a trio!

  59. Trent December 2, 2017

    Lord let that man do what he does best.. Manage
    Yes lord yes

  60. Cotten smiley December 2, 2017

    I think that’s a smart move.I hope it works out for them.

  61. Myralyn Hays December 2, 2017

    Looking forward to having Xscape back “Kicking it”.??????

  62. Cheryl December 2, 2017

    I love it.the ladies desire the best and so do Vince. Good match up. May God Bless them. And have long term success

  63. ANN December 2, 2017

    Awesome, ha did your business ladies.

  64. Mister. December 2, 2017

    I’m so tired of all the Xscape “fans” who have negative things to say about the members. A lot of us have favorites, but a true fan loves all four of them. And for the record, Kandi can sing her b*** off, but when you are in a group, you play your role and sing your notes. Listen to “You Cut Me Deep” and peep that voice some of y’all think is so bad. Furthermore, they were young and mistakes were made. They have learned much and grown into beautiful business women, mothers, and wives. Please be respectful of all of them on this journey to bring back good music. #TEAMXSCAPE #YESALLOFTHEM

  65. Denise Green December 2, 2017

    I think that good for them if thats.what they want cause they work hard at what they do and life goes on if its better for them then i go for it no love lost just more love .go for it ladys

  66. JaniceBuchanan December 2, 2017

    Iove the fact that they r moving forward without kandi she is to baby acting so emotional so let her continue wit her restaurant with that nasty high ass food and imuture ways ,they will succeed without her. Good luck ladies I wish y’all all the best.

  67. Class December 2, 2017

    Mr.HERBERT Yessa good move ladies he’s a grrrrreat man. I Love him

  68. RoyalKev December 3, 2017

    I prefer Kandi in the group, but if they have a following (with her being absent), more power to Xscape! I see Vince is getting his business dealings back on track ! Everybody is winning! I really wish En Vogue and DK3 could have been blessed with an amazing comeback that had this kind of backing! 🙁

  69. TheseCookiesAintLying December 3, 2017

    Most don’t know that Vince was a producer from way back in the late 80’s and all throughout the 90’s and 2000’s, and with his work with Lady Gaga and Tamar in this era of music …business wise it’s a smart move Xscape is business him and Tamar is personal or for Tamars publicity ?? but I think Vince is a good look as far as management and with Mona handling their tv stuff….this is a win win situation.
