Xscape & Jermaine Dupri End Beef?
Have Xscape and Jermaine Dupri officially ended their feud? This week, JD posted a clip of him meeting with the group members including: LaTocha Scott, Tameka Scott Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Harris. See the clip below.
In the past, there’s been rumors that there has been tension between JD and the group. And this was confirmed back in May when it was announced that two competing biopics about them were underway. As previously reported, JD teamed up with TV One to do a film titled, Who Can I Run To: The Xscape Story. See the official description below.
This original film is based on the story on of 90s R&B quartet Xscape, whose story of their rise to fame and group implosion was told on an episode of TV One’s award-winning docu-series, Unsung. Comprised of sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott, and classmates Kandi Burruss and Tameka “Tiny” Cottle, the R&B quartet formed a sisterhood as strong as their sound, recording the #1 hits “Just Kickin’ It,” “Understanding” and “Who Can I Run To?” Since their breakup in 1998, attempts to reunite the group have failed with lingering bitterness and deep seeded anger playing out on public forums.
The film is being produced in partnership with JD, who produced Xscape’s three platinum albums.
Meanwhile, the group teamed up with Love & Hip Hop producer Mona Scott-Young to produce an authorized Xscape biopic. The group addressed the biopic that TV One and JD are planning, making it clear that they are not pleased. They state,
We are excited to join forces with Mona Scott-Young and Monami Entertainment to bring the real Xscape story to the world. This partnership will allow us to tell our story about our lives the way we lived it. It’s our truth about the rise, the fall, and the return of Xscape. We feel the recent announcement of an unauthorized biopic on our lives is disrespectful and disappointing. We are not, in any way, participating in that project and it will never ‘represent’ our true story.
No word on what JD and Xscape discussed, but it looks like they may have officially cleared the air.
