Bout It Bout It: Xscape links with Mona Scott Young for an official biopic

It’s no Little Secret that the baddies of 90s R&B girl-group, Xscape, felt all types of ways about TV One’s plans to release an unauthorized biopic detailing their whirlwind rise and tragic fall from fame.  So, in effort to share their own story, the “Understanding,” crooning quartet has tapped drool-worthy programming curator, Mona Scott Young, to construct their true and unfiltered tale…. 


On the heels of the 25th anniversary of the clique’s debut single, “Just Kickin It” and album Hummin Comin’ At Cha, Xscape members Kandi Burruss-Tucker, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, and sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott have given their stamp of approval on the 50-year-old Love And Hip Hop mastermind lending her alchemy as executive producer via her production company, Monami Entertainment, to their biographical piece… 
“Monami and Xscape are currently shopping the biopic to networks,” according to Deadline. 


Last week, TV One’s announcement that it would soon be producing Who Can I Run To: The Xscape Story biopic, with the help of legendary music mogul, Jermaine Dupri, was sourly greeted by the Off The Hook chanteuses who unabashadely expressed their discontent with the network’s moves to make a movie sans their consent or involvement.  

“We feel the recent announcement of an unauthorized biopic on our lives is disrespectful and disappointing,” the group said in a statement. “We are not, in any way, participating in that project and it will never ‘represent’ our true story.”

In addition to piecing together their trials and tribulations for the Mona Scott Young project, Xscape– who first hit the R&B scene in 1991 and enjoyed three consecutive platinum albums plus six Top 10 hits on the Billboard charts before disbanding in the early 2000s– is also said to be shopping around a reality television show that will reportedly focus on their upcoming reunion tour.
