This took place during the Essence Music Festival, but Raheem just released it online. If you didn’t know the R&B Hippie has a radio show, and while down in New Orleans for the festival, he caught up with fellow R&B singers Tank & Tyrese. The crooners spoke further about their joint group TGT, with Ginuwine, and plans and progress for their first official album.
Tyrese also announced he is working on a new book with Rev Run titled ‘Manology‘ which he summed up as “bold, raw, uncomfortable truth,” further describing it as “nothing politically correct…we can’t save lives from lying to people and trying to say stuff safely.”
The singer/actor/author also shared some feelings toward R&B at the moment, “[albums] are over-saturated with appearances…and then you got 30 different producers working on one album, the spirit and the inconsistency of the album is ALL over the place.” In regards to the TGT project, “We are working with 2 producers on the whole album, including [Tank] and we’re just gonna mold and shape the spirit of R&B and remind [people] why they fell in love with R&B in the first place.”
