Kandi Burruss is a Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star TV but maybe more importantly she is hitmaking songwriter and a former member of platinum selling R&B group Xscape. But like the TLC vs Pebbles drama has revealed, she too caught a bad record deal the first time out.
Nevertheless, the Atlanta native kept an even perspective about it and didn’t slander her original label home, Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def.
According to the “No Scrubs” songwriter, whether her and Xscape caught a raw deal is matter of perspective. “I try to look at it from both sides,” Burruss told Hip Hop Wired. If you think about, So So Def, they took a chance on signing us. They didn’t know if we was going to blow up .They invested the money, the time and energy; if it wasn’t for that, we wouldn’t have no hit records and we wouldn’t be out there. It could have went the opposite. Maybe it wouldn’t have blown up and they’d just have money down the drain.”
Nevertheless, Burruss recalling that the group allegedly got $12,000 dollars to split four ways when their debut album eventually went platinum is certainly eye-opening to how the music industry works.
