Surviving TLC members T-Boz and Chilli will be performing at this year’s Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Rap-Up reports that the two members of the beloved 1990s R&B trio will be taking the stage at the show. The ladies have only performed sporadically since the 2002 death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. Also taking the stage in Hershey will be Run-DMC‘s Rev. Run, Hanson, The Jonas Brothers, One Republic, Boyz II Men and New Kids On The Block (N.K.O.T.B.) TLC were also the subject of a VH1 biopic that was filmed earlier this year in Atlanta and set to air later in 2013.
Blade aka Nino Brown from New Jack City aka Wesley Snipes has been released from prison. The acclaimed actor had been in the bing since 2010 for tax evasion.
Passenger 57 is no longer Inmate #43355-018 — TMZ has learned Wesley Snipes has been released from prison. The Federal Bureau of Prisons tells TMZ … Snipes was released on April 2 and transferred to the New York Community Corrections Office, which will oversee his home confinement. Home confinement (aka house arrest) will end July 19. Snipes checked into McKean Federal Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania back in December 2010 after he was convicted for failing to file federal income tax returns. Let this be a reminder … you’ve got 10 days left, people!!!
Back in 2008, Snipes was convicted of willful failure to file federal income tax returns. Despite a number of appeals, he began serving his three year sentence in December, 2010 and even filed another appeal in 2011 that was rejected. Our only advice for Mr. Snipes is a handy Jay-Z lyric from “Show You How” off The Blueprint 2; ”Pay ya taxes, you ni–as is hustling backwards.” Welcome home Wesley!
In March 2011, Mac Miller and Jazzy Jeff revealed that they were eyeing a summer release for a collaborative mixtape titled ’92 Til Infinity, a project that’s been stalled ever since. But now, the tape is back on track, with the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania rapper confirming that it will drop in early 2013.
During an interview with The Well Versed, Mac said that the project will no longer be him rapping over old beats from established producers due to his lawsuit from Lord Finesse. Instead, he will enlist original production from veteran producers and unleash the project at the top of the year.
“Yea, it’s still happening. We’ve got a date for it, It’s really dope,” he said. “The proejct is called ’92 to Infinity. It’s a play on Souls of Mischief‘s ”93 Til Infinity.’ That song, it was a great song. Basically, I just wanted to team up with someone who’s such a respected veteran. Jeff, still to this day, is one of the greatest DJs of all time, just to see him live. There’s not many people who can put on a better live show than Jazzy Jeff as a DJ.
