VH1’s hit documentary “Behind The Music” is back, and this time with a lineup featuring some of the most iconic figures in Hip-Hop and R&B. VH1 announced the full lists of artists featured on the program Tuesday including Bobby Brown, T.I., 50 Cent and Lil Wayne.
The series kicks off with Wayne’s story on Thursday, September 10 with the baby daddy of Nivea, Lauren London, Antonia Carter and an unidentified college student giving viewers a look into his trippy world. The serial baby maker divulges details to the VH1 cast of his childhood and past including his first experimentation with drugs and introduction into Cash Money.
Following Wayne’s special, viewers can prepare themselves for Behind The Music: Bobby Brown. Debuting on September 24, Brown’s episode should be especially interesting as the former New Edition member speaks on his infamous love affair with drugs and divorce from megastar Whitney Houston.
Next up, is the story of ATL’s locked up legend and “King of the South”, T.I., on October 8. T.I.’s story was recorded months before he began his 1 year and 1 day stint in a Federal prison for felony weapon charges and details his life up until that point. Much like his MTV Road To Redemption reality show, TIP gets gritty about his rise and fall in the game taking fans on a candid ride into his life.
Lastly, Jamaica Queen’s finest and successful Hip-Hop impresario, 50 Cent, tells his story on October 13. 50 relays the infamous near death experience that left him riddled with nine bullets and his contentious beginnings as a hustler on New York street corners. He contrasts those experiences with the enormous success of his albums, Get Rich or Die Trying and The Massacre and achievements of his G Unit Empire.
