What Went Wrong? Supergroups That Could Have Been Awesome, But Were A Bust

A lot of popular musicians admire one another and often work together on projects. But every now and then, these people try to come together to create an actual supergroup of sorts. Multiple established individuals working under one name, one sound. And while the idea of supergroups is cool, many don’t make it. Why? Label conflict, big egos, and sometimes, fans just aren’t feeling what they’re selling. Here are 10 examples of supergroups that have been a bust for a variety of reasons.

Ever wonder what it’d be like if “Real Housewives of Atlanta” crossed over with “Love and Hip Hop”? Meet Peach Candy. Comprised of singer/songwriter Kandi Burruss and rapper Rasheeda Buckner-Frost, the duo provided a unique sound of crunk/hip-hop tracks with an R&B flare. The group disbanded because of their busy schedules and never released an album (they ladies are still close friends though). But they did release several singles like “Crazy,” “Bam,” “Wish I Never” and “Rain At Home” featuring Lil Scrappy.

So whose little man is this? It’s Kirk and Rasheeda Frost’s baby boy, Karter. Remember when Kirk was acting a fool on “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” and in his disappointment that Rasheeda was pregnant again (they have another son named Ky), tried to claim that their unborn son wasn’t his? You know, even though he was the run out here jumping in hot tubs with scandalous folks? Well, thankfully, Kirk got it together, and off-camera, he and Rasheeda are crazy about their little tyke, posting many photos of the curly-haired cutie on their Instagram pages. Definitely a very beautiful family. Check out more pics of the little lad and his mom and dad below (and on the next page).

Why Rasheeda Hasn’t Given Up On Her Marriage

Rasheeda Hasn't Given Up On Her Marriage

At some point or another, most “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” fans have probably starred blankly at the television, wondering why Rasheeda is still putting up with Kirk’s nonsense. As if he didn’t do enough damage last season by stepping out on her and asking her to abort their child, he seems to be up to the same foolish shenanigans this season. But Rasheeda says she’ll continue to fight to keep their marriage together until there’s no fight left in her because although things are really bad now, they’ve had some amazing times as well.

“Although we have these bumps, it’s been hella years of just really great times and beautiful marital bliss to a certain extent. I feel like I’ll work on it until you ain’t go no more fight,” the new mom told VH1. And even if a lot of times you might look crazy, it’s all about your own heart.”

She went on to say that what she does in her marriage won’t be swayed by public opinion because there’s no way viewers can have an accurate picture of what’s going on in their relationship.

“It ain’t what the f*ck everybody’s opinion is about your marriage because people see those two minutes of a clip, and don’t see everything else that happens.”

As for whether or not the two will consider legally separating for a while, Rasheeda says:

“I think it’s always a possibility. Some people don’t believe in it and I’ve seen people who have verbally said they don’t believe in it and have been divorced. I think it’s something that can happen. You can’t really call it because you never know what could really happen. I just feel like with me I went into a committed situation, and now we have these bumps that we’re going through.”

Rasheeda also touched on Kirk’s most recent stunt, where he tried to hire a woman he met at a bar to be their son’s nanny.

“My real first thoughts were ‘Oh this must be one of your little cousins or some sh*t that I don’t remember.’ That’s what I was thinking,” she explained. “The reason I didn’t go H.A.M is because I think sometimes you need to know a what a situation is first. I called it right because I don’t think she knew what she was walking in to.”

“One thing about a man is that if they’re going to do certain things, you shouldn’t lay everything out,” the reality star continued. “So I was like let me be calm to see what she was told. ‘What was said. What was done? The reason why you’re here?’ Let me find that out first before I tell him to escort your little boney a** out the door. Even though I was fired up I felt like I needed to be grown though.”

Well, all we can say is best of luck to them.

For nearly two years, Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta has brought us the rachet drama we can’t help but love and loathe. To celebrate the show’s third season (which kicked off last week) we’re taking a look back at 15 of the biggest scandals to come out of the Atlanta franchise… so far.

‘I Don’t Want To Take The Woman’s Word:’ Kirk & Rasheeda Talk Paternity Test Drama

If you caught Wednesday’s episode of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta,” chances are you witnessed Kirk Frost swab his infant son on national television with the intent of establishing paternity of the child. It’s no secret that Kirk, for whatever reason, had doubts about whether or not Rasheeda had been faithful to him. But seeing him swab baby Karter for the world to see was a bit much. According to Kirk, he has been through a paternity mix-up before and simply wished to avoid going through it again.

“I’m going to be honest. It’s a honest answer,” Kirk expressed during a recent appearance on the Ryan Cameron show. “First of all, I found out I had another child, I met him when he was almost 18 years old. I felt like another guy was raising my child until he was 18 years old. I feel like I was robbed of knowing I had a child for that many years. For me, if I have anymore kids, I don’t want to take the woman’s word on it. I want to check myself.”

As for the scene where he swabs little Karter, Kirk says:

“That’s me checking to make sure that’s my child. Everybody talking about how light skin your kids, I’m not going to torture myself and sit here and listen, now I know. I’m not saying its right or wrong, I’m just tired of that.”

“It makes me sounds crazy, but when you have a child where does it come from? It comes out of a woman. We have to take your word. Are you perfect? Wife don’t mean that I should believe you.”

“He sounds like a fool,” Rasheeda interjected. “I’ve never put you in a situation to feel like you needed to swab Karter. You stepped out.”

The reality stars also confirmed recent rumors that producers have beefed up security during “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” filming sessions.

“Our job is crazy, you’re going through metal detectors,” said Kirk.

“It’s like that, now even when we’re working they take on extra precautions not only to protect you, maybe from getting into it with another cast mate but other people who just wilding out,” Rasheeda added. “People do crazy stuff—so we have to keep extra security on deck because people be getting out of hand.”

Rasheeda has really tough skin. That’s all I’ll say.

#TBT Guess Who

This week on Love & Hip-Hop Rasheeda talked about being in a relationship with her estranged husband, Kirk, for 17 years. That seemed like an awfully long time looking at the youthful new mother and rapper, but this throwback pic of the two rocking Karl Kani and Tommy together is all the proof we need that the pair has been an item for nearly two decades.

Rasheeda’s Instagram fan page posted the #TBT photo above under the @rasheeda_bosschick username and when I saw the pic it was just too good not to share. The pre- Mr. and Mrs. Frost look so cute together in what I assume was their late teens or early 20s hanging out together young and in love. So far, neither half has endorsed the photo with a retweet, but we wonder if they saw the photo would it help them get back to better times when they were deeply in love and committed to one another. Ooops, almost forgot Rasheeda’s still doing her part so perhaps Kirk is the only one who needs to see this. Feel free to Tweet him and pass the love along.

Rasheeda Shows Off Post-Pregnancy Body

It’s time to give credit where credit is due because Love & Hip-Hop‘s Rasheeda is looking amazing after giving birth to a baby boy last year.

The reality star took to her Instagram account Friday to show off her #BounceBack progress with the photo above, writing:

Soooooo #babykarter is now 7 months old & I’m still working on my #bounceback the 1st pick is how I look today!! I still have several lbs to drop…. I’m about 200lbs in the middle picture (Whewwww Chile). The b4 pic was me b4 gettin preggos I was so in shape & small. I think ima keep a lil thickness tho but for now I wanted to show you guys my results so far. A decent diet nothing to crazy, exercise & a few stomach detox wraps is what I’ve been doing ohh & lots of water!! #grindlife#teamgetfit #thebouncebackisreal #workoutflow#teamstaymotivated

I don’t know about you, but I’m motivated and I didn’t even have a baby! The best thing about Rasheeda’s pic is that her progress is realistic. These days women, particularly famous women, are expected to snap back within a months, sometimes even weeks, of giving birth. To go from 200 pounds to the size she is today is an amazing feat for Rasheeda and I’m willing to be she’ll maintain her get it right get it tight figure quite well from here on out. What do you think? Check out another pic of Rasheeda in workout mode on the next page.

Don’t Do Dumb Sh!t: Kirk Frost Talks Lessons Learned & Working On His Marriage

Before all hell broke loose at the opening of Stevie J and Benzino’s restaurant, “Sleazy & Zino Bistro & Bar,” The Jasmine Brand got a chance to speak with Kirk Frost about a couple of things, mostly focusing on his indiscretions last season and the way he embarrassed himself and his family stepping out on Rasheeda. While there are plenty of people who find Kirk vile, as one of three married couples, and the least dysfunctional, in the whole “Love and Hip Hop” franchise, there are folks who want them to work it out. And it seems that that’s what he and Rasheeda are attempting to do.  See what he had to say.

Jasmine Brand: What was the lesson you learned from your situation on the last season of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta”?

Kirk Frost: The lesson I learned was don’t try to prove a point to your wife and do dumb sh*t.

 

JB: Will we be witnessing that same type of drama this time around?

KF: Nah man. I’m trying to get on the right page. I want to get to a point where I can have Rasheeda back as a business partner, as a friend, as a wife, as a husband to her, and being a good guy and being a good father. I mean…I’m not perfect but I’m just hoping that she can get past it.

You can check out the rest of his interview over at The Jasmine Brand. 

And in other Kirk and Rasheeda news, from the looks of both of their Instagram pages, the couple will appear on the cover of the March issue of Sister 2 Sister Magazine. Look at that playful side eye she’s giving him! She jokes but it’s clear these two are staying together, if they ever broke up in the first place.

Hip-hop is still a young artform, which means there is still a long way to go when it comes to giving respect where it is due. The women of hip-hop on the mic, in the studio, writing bars and battle rapping often don’t get the respect and recognition they deserve, so we decided to spotlight 15 women who’ve contributed to hip-hop in big ways.

Yo-Yo

Yo-Yo did her thing in the ’90s when she was featured on Ice Cube’s AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted album for “It’s a Man’s World.” Her debut album Make Way for the Motherlode in 1990 gained popularity with the single “You Can’t Play with My Yo-Yo.” Although she didn’t receive mainstream success she continued to release albums that were authentic and true hip-hop. In 1992 she released her second album, Black Pearl that had a positive message which clashed with the current sound of gangsta rap. She went on to release three other albums and her single  “Can’t Play With My Yo-Yo” was ranked number 92 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs.
