The group Xscape formed in the early 1990s and was composed of sisters LaTocha 'Meatball' (born in 1973) and Tamika 'Juicy' (1975) Scott, as well as Kandi Burruss (1976) and Tameka 'Tiny' Cottle (1975). The Scott sister's father was a Reverend and part of the 70s group Scott Three. The girls sang at church and were trained by their father. They met the other two members in 1990 in a suburb of Atlanta and Xscape was born.
Xscape got their chance when singing at a birthday party for Jermaine Dupri in 1991 and were signed to So So Def Recordings.
In 1993, Xscape released the album Hummin' Comin' At Cha. The debut single 'Just Kickin' It' hit #2 on the Hot 100 and the second single 'Understanding' was a #1 hit on the R&B charts. With the help of these singles, the album managed to go platinum.
Xscape's sophomore effort Off the Hook was released in 1995 to similar success. The album had the hit single 'Who Can I Run To' which made it to #1 on the R&B charts and Feels so Good which made it to #8. Continuing the group's success, the album went platinum.
Xscape's last album together was Traces of My Lipstick, released in 1998. Its single 'The Arms Of The One Who Loves You' reached #4 on the R&B charts and #7 on the Hot 100. The second single 'My Little Secret' had similar success, reaching #2 on the R&B charts and #9 on the Hot 100. Like the earlier albums, Traces went platinum.
In a strange twist of things, Xscape parted ways after their third album's release. Most artists continue on and release several less successful albums before calling it quits but all of Xscape's albums went platinum. The girls of Xscape went on to their own solo careers with varying success.
Tamika released a gospel album called God's Gift and is married with a daughter. LaTocha recorded a solo album Solo Flight 404 and is married with a son. Kandi released a solo album called Hey Kandi, and has written for TLC, Destiny's Child and Boyz II Men. She discovered the group Jagged Edge and is working on an upcoming album. Tameka wrote the song 'No Scrubbs' along with Kandi. She has a son.
