The lovely ladies of Xscape took over the Essence Festival 2017.
Kandi Burruss has made a career out of making music, but along the way she made mistakes. During the Xscape panel discussion at ESSENCE Festival’s Empowerment Experience, the 41-year-old talked about what she’s learned since reuniting with her group members.
“When we started things off there was a lot we didn’t capitalize off of, when we were younger, and we didn’t tour enough,” she said. “So it was a lot of money that we missed out on.”
Adding, “Even though we were very successful, we had three platinum albums, and multiple Top 10 hits, for that type of success, I don’t feel like we walked away with the type of money that we should of. I feel like we should’ve been writing a lot more. It’s kind of crazy after Tiny and I, we did ‘No Scrubs’ and right after, that we separated, and whatever, and when I started seeing those checks, I was like ‘Man, this is money we’ve been missing out on all this time.'”
