As you might hear, Remy Ma is finally free now and she’s coming back the rap game. As she promised earlier, she releases her new mixtape I’m Around. DJ Khaled welcomes the Bronx rapper home on the intro and then you can find there 11 tracks writting with some gangsta feeling. In one of the tracks which is on the album, “Always”, you can hear she raps over TLC’s “No Scrubs” beat! This track was produced by Trackz. Feel free to listen or download mixtape below:

HelloGiggles made a great list of “empowering ’90s songs that made you love being a girl” and guess what? They put also TLC’s “No Scrubs”! To be honest it’s not a suprise but still nice that somebody remember about T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli’s top single! Check the full article HERE, below it’s just a part of beginning and #2.
The era of flannel, platform shoes, and Tamagotchis may be long gone—but the best music from that era lives on. We’ve noticed, in fact, that some of those super-empowering, female-driven ’90s songs are still influencing female musicians today—see the rad band Juce, or even T-Swift’s new album for proof. That’s because the ’90s was kind of an important moment for women in music. Female vocalists found their voices and made sure we’d all sing along with them. They had (and still have) us feeling our feelings and our feelings cannot be stopped. So let’s bring back some of the classic songs from that decade and rock out one more time.
2. TLC – “No Scrubs” (1999)
Sing it, ladies. We don’t want ‘no scrubs’ because we are better than that, and TLC made us realize our worth. They also brought us unforgettably awesome attire in their video.
It will be ladies’ night at the Soul Train Awards 2014. Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliott, and Da Brat will reunite for a special performance at next month’s show.
The hip-hop trio will revive their 1996 platinum single, “Not Tonight (Remix),” which appeared on the soundtrack to Nothing to Lose. The ladies’ anthem also featured Angie Martinez and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes.
Missy, Kim, and Da Brat will pay tribute to Kool & the Gang, whose 1979 song “Ladies’ Night” they sampled. The funk icons will be honored with the Legend Award, which recognizes individuals for their outstanding achievements and contribution to soul music. The tribute also includes a performance by R&B crooner Joe.
Tamar Braxton, Bobby Brown, Tank, and Sevyn Streeter join previously announced performers Jodeci, Ma$e, Aloe Blacc, Nico & Vinz, and Chris Brown, who will open the show.
Trey Songz, Keith Sweat, and LisaRaye McCoy will present, while Wendy Williams hosts the show at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas on November 7.
The Soul Train Awards 2014 airs on Centric and BET on November 30 at 8 p.m. See a full list of nominees here.

We’re not sure if Lil’ Kim, Da Brat and Missy Elliott are doing a tribute for Lisa, but we hope so. What more we can add is that girls performed together the remix of “Not Tonight” only one time at MTV Video Music Awards in 1997. You can watch the performance here. In addition, we give you a link for our photos gallery where we have some pictures from rehearsals — click here for first or second album.

After about 15 layouts we already had here on Ultimate TLC since 2007 I realized that I had never used any photoshoot from Ooooooohhh… On the TLC Tip era! What a shame on me, ha! But finally, I took some photos from 90s and you can see results now. It shouldn’t be problems with new graphics and all sections are working but if you see something is wrong, please give us a sign. I really hope you enjoy new work — especially a pink slideshow in the centre! As always, thank you for your support and what I can write more, me and AzzIzz are working on some suprises! Stay tuned!
By the way, Sam Hunt who is is an American country singer-songwriter and former college football player played on Good Morning America and during the sound check he wore H&M t-shirt with TLC’s cover of Crazy Sexy Cool. See the photo he posted on his Facebook below:
Also, MNEK who is a Grammy-nominated British singer-songwriter and record producer posted on his Facebook song “Never Be The Same Again” made by Melanie C and Left Eye. So fantastic that so many artists still show love for our girls ♥
We made a special album on our facebook fanpage with inspirations for TLC Halloween costumes, check it out here.
We would like to write some words in honor of Natina Reed — the singer from R&B group Blaque, which was discovered by Lisa Lopes. It’s been 2 years since we knew Natina died but it’s still hard to believe she’s not with us anymore. All we can do is pray for the family and friends and we hope she’s rocking the heaven with Left Eye! Check some photos and videos they were together:
Blaque “808” (1999)
Blaque “I Do” (1999)
Blaque was also at Left Eye Music Fest in 2012. Check the pictures below:
Cheryl Cole just showed love for TLC! She made a medley of our girls’ song “Unpretty” and Beyonce’s “Pretty Hurts”. Both tracks are connected with self-esteem so it’s seems right to mix them. Enjoy the beautiful covers!
