It’s a busy week for chart-topping group Bell Biv Devoe. The group releases the video for the upbeat track “I’m Betta” today. “I’m Betta” was produced by Naughty By Nature’s Kay Gee, and is the third track made available from their new album, Three Stripes ≡, which will be released this Friday, January 27, 2017. The hit single from the album, “Run” is currently Top 10 at Urban AC radio, and the group’s next single, “Finally,” features multi-platinum trio SWV.
In addition to releasing their first studio album in 16 years, BBD – as original members of New Edition – celebrate the release of the highly anticipated 3-night biopic, The New Edition Story, airing tonight at 9 PM EST on BET. New Edition also received a coveted star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday, and Bell Biv Devoe members Ronnie DeVoe, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins joined fellow New Edition members Bobby Brown, Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill, at the unveiling ceremony.
The DJ was playing some of Bobby Brown’s Classic Hits at Ronnie Devoe’s Wedding Reception and Bobby decided to step up to the mic and sing,” Don’t Be Cruel”… He had the whole crowd rocking. Check It Out…
We made this mixtape back in the late 90’s for a bachelorette Party. The bride to be, rented a limo and wanted me to make a mixtape for her special day. She chose the songs and I put them down in a mix. Side B was a Booty Mix. Although, we can’t seem to find that mixtape… Hmmmmm. I going to have Fry Weezie go on a mixtrape man hunt. The limo driver loved the mixtape and ask if he can have it. Luckily, we had a copy of it. I remember the night I recorded the mix. I was in my room and I had the lights off. I did all the cuing without a monitor just straight from the headphones. Which to this day, we still record the same way using just the headphones. I could not have loud music in my room because I did not want to disturb my family while they slept. I was trained using the headphones because local clubs did not have a monitors so we just used the headphones instead. This mix was recorded on Real Vinyl. Serato was not around till 2006. For ol’ Times sake, there are times when we mix using Serato but on Absolute Mode. Absolute Mode resembles real vinyl on the Serato Sofeware. Sometimes, we still want to use are ears rather then keeping our eye glued on the laptop. We hope you enjoy the mix. I’m pretty sure the ladies enjoyed the Limo ride and males strippers. Cochinas!!!!
Artist on This mixtape Includes: Doug-e Fresh, Slick Rick, Mad Lion, MC Hammer, Eric B and Rakim, Keith Sweat, Guy, and Many More.

It’s time to plan a reunion to enjoy Freestyle & Old School Extravaganza together. The event will be presenting the concert-goers with their favorite hit songs from the eighties and nineties. This phenomenal music is bound to bring back nostalgic school time memories. Cherish school memories with your old friends and create new ones. Freestyle tickets will treat you to a night featuring top-tier freestyle dance music. Sure, you can watch the video of the event online instead of going. But there is no recreation of the atmosphere where you actually find yourself standing in the middle of thousands of fellow dance music fans feeling the energy of the Freestyle Extravaganza heating up.
