The year was 1999, and we partied like it was 1999 as we spent our last year on earth (according to conspiracy theorist) living life to the fullest. “No Scrubs” by oh so popular girl group TLC off their album FanMail RULED the air waves, as the ladies declared they could do without men who could not provide for themselves or anyone else. That’s what the song was about right? Released in January 1999 as the album’s first single, “No Scrubs” became TLC’s third number-one single and eighth top 10 single on the Billboard Hot 100. It also earned them their second Grammy nomination for Record of the Year.

“No Scrubs” is one of TLC’s signature songs and was the second biggest Hot 100 single of 1999, according to Billboard ’​s Year-End Charts.


If you don’t have a car and you’re walking

Oh yes, son, I’m talking to you

If you live at home with your mamma

Oh yes, son, I’m talking to you (baby)

If you have a shorty but you don’t show love

Oh yes, son, I’m talking to you

Wanna get with me with no money

Oh no, I don’t want, no (oh)



Fast Forward to 2015. Unfortunately, at the present time one of the members of TLC, Left Eye, has left us to be with the Lord. R.I.P. Left Eye. TLC have not since recorded, and although T-Boz & Chilli pop up on your occasional award show, open bar or throwback concert, they have fallen back from creating music of their own. Until now that is.


The ladies of TLC are ready to record their last and final album, but a few things are missing, mainly a major record deal and more importantly, money. So the ladies of TLC have decided to start a kick starter to raise funds for their last album with a solicitation price of 150,000. Although we know albums can be pricey, considering producers, production, studio time, etc… we can’t help but ask ourselves this question … Are TLC considered scrubs for soliciting money from their fans to fund their last album?

Our Guy @RealLifeKaz of TheSTASHED.com made a statement on Twitter the other day that made us think about this even more. Why not drop the 150K out of pocket? Isn’t that what a NON-scrub would do? Or, is it ok to switch up and be a scrub when you need to be?


Now, we’d like to know, What are your thoughts?
