Biography

Xscape is a female American R&B quartet that had a string of hit songs during the early and mid 1990s. The original lineup of the group consisted of sisters LaTocha Scott (“Meatball”) (born October 2, 1973) and Tamika Scott (“Juicy”) (born November 19, 1975), along with Kandi Burruss (born May 17, 1976) and Tameka Cottle (“Tiny”) (born July 14,1975).


The Scott sisters’ father, Rev. Randolf Scott, was part of the 1970s R&B group Scott Three. The sisters sang at church throughout their childhoods while being trained by their father. In 1990, they met the other two members, Burruss and Cottle, in College Park, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta.

Music career

They first sang at Jermaine Dupri’s birthday party in 1991 and later signed to his label, So So Def Recordings. They released their debut album, Hummin’ Comin’ At ‘Cha, in October of 1993. The album featured their debut single, “Just Kickin’ It”, which reached #2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, along with the other singles “Tonight”, “Understanding”, and “Love On My Mind”.


Xscape’s sophomore album, Off the Hook, was released in July of 1995. It featured the #1 hit “Who Can I Run To” (a cover of the song originally recorded by The Jones Girls) along with singles “Feels So Good”, “Can’t Hang”, and “Do You Want To”. During the next few years, they collaborated with different artists such as female rapper MC Lyte on the song “Keep On Keepin’ On” and pop/R&B singer Mariah Carey on the Mr. Dupri Mix of her #1 song, “Always Be My Baby”, which also featured rapper Da Brat.

    LaTocha seems really sweet on R&B Divas. I hope Kandi will make an appearance on the show someday

    Definitely in my top five favorite 90's R&B girl-groups. When you have Xscape and SWV you can't go wrong <3

    The fact that Destiny's Child was nominated to be voted for the most influential female artists of the 90s instead of Xscape is beyond disturbing.

    I wonder if they'll get back together, since Khandi got a cd out, hopefully they'll do a reunion.

    I like all of Xscape's music every since they came out with their first album. Just Kickin It because the song became a hit during my period of time while I was growing up. I prefer to listen to their music over some of the garbage that we hear nowadays. They made great music back in the day! Why not reunite and make more? Don't mention the album, "Off the hook" because it the title speaks for itself!
