Exclusive: Then And Now! Immature Tells All!



Remember the 90’s? Fighting with your friends over who in the r&b group, Immature, was the cutest. Dreaming about being at their concert and being pulled up on stage to be sung to. Or even just hanging their posters up on your wall. Now, a new generation will be doing the same thing because the boys are back!

Jerome “Romeo” Jones, 33, Kelton “LDB” Kessee, 34, and Marques “Batman” Houston, 33, have joined forces yet again to bring new and old fans some hot new music. “Us reemerging is very exciting for us as well because of our fans. We have a lot of fans out there that we didn’t even know we had,” Houston told HipHollywood during an exclusive interview in our loft.

Now, in their early 30’s, their voices are sexier than ever. “The advantage that we have of being so young when we started is our voices were like babies. We redid some of our old songs to to hear it then and now is cool for us,” Houston explained.

According to Kelton, the group’s forthcoming album Forever, which is set to drop this spring, will be more of “today’s sound.” Marques added, “we are grown and we get to talk about things we didn’t talk about before.”

The group recently released a new song called, “Let Me Find Out,” re-released one of their most popular tracks, “Never Lie,” which is on Vevo now, and has a special gift for fans this Valentines Day.

“We are releasing a body of music free for our fans on Valentines Day,” Marques said. “That’s really exciting for us because we think that will give the old fans something to reminisce to because we redid a couple of our old jams. We also did some new music that will give the newcomers a taste of how we comin’.”

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
