Jagged Edge may respect Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank as individual artists, but they don’t see TGT as a “real” RnB group.
During a recent interview at the HipHollywood Loft, the four group members opened up about their thoughts on TGT’s claim that they are bringing real RnB back,
“Its kinda presumtuos to act like we ain’t banging on the same doors and ya’ll gone come and magically open all the doors. We all in the same fight,” the group told HipHollywood. “Some of the groups that is out or wanted to be out, they ain’t have those opportunities, just like ya’ll saw it ain’t as easy as ya’ll thought it was gonna be.”
But it is not just the bold claim that TGT is bringing real RnB back that is bothering the four group members, it is also the idea that TGT believes they are a real RnB group,
“I don’t know if you even get what being in a group is all about when you throw it together. Its all about chemistry, its all about the report, its all about being able to stand with a certain amount of solidarity. If yall hardly together… I don’t know,” the group told HipHollywood. “And people know they not a group … everybody know who you are, you’re not hiding.”

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract
Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.
Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four and clarified what really happened.
“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained. “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”
H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”
After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”
She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.
They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
