“No Scrubs” by TLC – 1999

This week, Lauren Bambam calls in all the way from the frozen wastelands of Grand Rapids, Michigan to define gender roles and talk about the 1999 number one hit by TLC, “No Scrubs”. Originally a concept group assembled by the hottest producers in the business, TLC scored several number one hits with almost zero creative input in their music. With the exception of a few small rap parts, one man was responsible for the production of nearly their entire catalog. Who was this man behind the curtain? Did Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes actually die in a fire? Why didn’t the slang term “scrub” catch on? All these questions and more will be answered on this week’s episode of Single File.
