DeWayne Rogers/Monami EntertainmentXscape is following up their first performance together in over 15 years at this year's Essence festival with their first-ever headlining tour

Called The Great Xscape Tour, the R&B group will make a trek across North America, kicking things off on November 22 in Richmond, VA.  

Monica and Tamar Braxton will join them as special guests.

In an official statement, the ladies of Xscape say, "You asked for it! We had so much fun with y'all this summer that we decided to bring the party to cities across the U.S." 

They continue: "We decided to do something very special and have our good friends Monica and Tamar Braxton join us! We are beyond excited to have them out with us for the ultimate girls night out show! This is the tour we've always wanted to do and we can't wait to see you there!"

That's set to air soon on Bravo.

ABC/Randy HolmesDonald Glover may have won two Emmy awards Sunday night, but the artist also known as Childish Gambino, hasn't turned his back on his music career.  

He's teased that that a collaborative studio project with Chance the Rapper -- who appeared in the Emmy opening musical number -- is in the works. 

Speaking to reporters in the press room at Sunday night's Emmys, Glover said, "I feel like if I don't make a Chance the Rapper mixtape -- double mixtape -- a bunch of 14-year-olds are gonna kick my a**. They stop me on the street and it's kinda scary." 

Glover continued, "Youth scares me. So, I feel like I gotta do something. I probably will." A video of his statement can be viewed on Twitter.  

Childish Gambino and Chance worked together on Gambino's track "The Worst Guys," which was released in 2013. 

And even though both superstars are very busy, with Donald working on Atlanta and Chance raising millions of dollars for Chicago Public Schools, they may be able to align their schedules.

Courtesy of VH1On Monday night, VH1 brought together an all star line up for its Hip Hop Honors: The '90s Game Changers event in Hollywood. The '90s style block party celebrated the golden era of hip-hop and shed light on the influential genre and how it crossed over into pop culture.

On Monday night, VH1 brought together an all star line up for its Hip Hop Honors: The '90s Game Changers event in Hollywood. The '90s style block party celebrated the golden era of hip-hop and shed light on the influential genre and how it crossed over into pop culture.

Hosted by Regina Hall, the event honored Master P, Jermaine Dupri, Martin Lawrence, Hype Williams and Mariah Carey.

Missy Elliot kicked off the show by emerging from a water tank in a black trench coat performing her '90s hit “She’s a B***h.” 

After her performance, Trick Daddy, Trina, Romeo, Silk the Shocker and Xscape hit the stage and performed a special medley of songs celebrating the '90s. "Nann," "Make 'Em Say Uhhand "Just Kickin' It," were enjoyed by the crowd before southern rap icons Jermaine Dupri and Master P accepted their awards.

Comedy also had a place at the Hip Hop Honors. When Tischina Arnold went to present Martin Lawrence with his award, the Survivor's Remorse actress was repeatedly interrupted during her speech by Lamorne Morris, Affion Crocket and Regina Hall who were all dressed as memorable characters from Martin.

The event also featured a number of signature performances which included Fat Joe and Remy Ma performing Big Pun's “Not a Player,” Warren G performing “Regulate” with Ty Dolla $ign, Xscape performing TLC’s “No Scrubs” and Ty Dolla $ign doing a melodic rendition of Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It.”

The event took a more serious turn when Pharrell Williams presented Hype Williams with his award. In a seemingly unrehearsed speech, Pharrell offered a heartfelt message about the current political climate asking everyone to “open your eyes.”  

Lil Kim, Havoc and Fabolous hit the stage to perform “Quiet Storm” in tribute to the late Prodigy of Mobb Deep, who died earlier this year.

Yet, even with all the notable performances and speeches, DJ Khaled’s son, Asahd Khaled, stole the show when he accompanied his father on stage to honor a true '90s icon: Mariah Carey.

After the Khaleds introduced Mariah, the singer sweetened the night by performing “Honey” and enlisting some of the song's most notable featured guests who included Da Brat, Jermaine Dupri, Mase and The Lox.

Page Six reports Mariah will hit the road next year with VH1 filming the tour for an upcoming docu-series.  

This project would mark the second reality show project for Mimi, whose first, titled Mariah's World's, aired for just one season last year on E!.   That series gave fans a glimpse of her 2016 Sweet Sweet Fantasy world tour.

A source tells Page Six, "Mariah's World was always planned to be an eight-part TV event. But now she is planning a huge world tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Butterfly to start early 2018. It will be similar to U2's Joshua Tree tour.  

Along with the tour, Mimi's also releasing a collector's edition 12-inch vinyl picture disc version of Butterfly on October 20, which you can pre-order now from Amazon.  

In addition, you can tune in tonight to see her perform her enduring hit single, "Honey" -- which comes from Butterfly -- along with Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat at this year's Hip Hop Honors: The 90's Game Changers on VH1 at 9 p.m. ET.

Mariah will be honored during the special broadcast as well.

Brad Barket/Getty ImagesAzealia Banks isn't shy about offering her opinion on, well, anything...and this time she's doling out some business advice to Lil Uzi Vert.

The "Chasing Time" rapper tweeted at Lil Uzi, "Nooooo uzi. Marilyn is played out!! PICK TRENT REZNOR INSTEADD!! @LILUZVERT!!!!!"  

The "Marilyn" in Banks' tweet refers to rock superstar Marilyn Manson, who told Consequence of Sound last week about his plan to work on Uzi's next album.    

Lil Uzi, on the other hand, took Azealia's plea with a grain of salt.  

According to the blog That Grape Juice, he referred to her -- in a now-deleted tweet -- as someone who was "never in fashion,"

Uzi then claimed his comment wasn't a diss, saying in another deleted tweet, "Relaaaaaaax just was playing i get bored 2."  

Meanwhile, Azealia continued to give Uzi Vert even more Twitter advice. 

"Marilyn Manson is like an old white weirdo lol," she says.  

"I get what your [sic] going for aesthetically. But all that rape culture [his] generation Represents is super creepy. You don't need to align urself with rapey old white bros to get rock."    

She ended her thoughts to Lil Uzi with the message, "Just my two cents. Congrats on all your success and new music. I love what you're doing. Peace xx."  

Azealia Banks is gearing up for her first North American tour in two years. Tickets are on sale now via azealiabanks.com.  

Meanwhile, Lil Uzi Vert's debut album, Luv is Rage 2, falls one notch this week to #2 on the Billboard 200.  

It debuted at number one following its August 25 release.

ABC/Randy Holmes; Image Group LA/ABCRumors of a romance between Nas and Nicki Minaj started brewing in May after a photo of both rappers cuddling with each another surfaced on Instagram that month.  

Now, E! News reports that the duo has actually been dating since May, but their relationship is still in its early stages. 

A source tells E! that "Nicki is not the type to date around," adding, "They are still getting to know each other."  

Another source, however, tells E! that Nas and Nicki are actually "just very dear friends" and nothing more. "They've been friends forever and have seen each other's careers take off," dishes the source.  

"They share a really close friendship and always has [sic] each other's back." 

"Nicki is single now and dating but nothing serious. Nas is a best friend to her so as of now nothing is stirring up," adds the source.  

"People always joke around though that they make a great couple!"  

Until either superstar confirms their status, we can only speculate, but it's clear that the two have been spending some quality time with one another.  

Nicki and Nas celebrated Nas' birthday on Wednesday,and Nas posted several pictures on Sunday of his splashy birthday gift -- a new 1988 190E Mercedes Benz-- with Nicki posing right by his side.

Michael Lavine/FOXEmpire actress and singer Serayah's brand new single is called "Driving Me," and she tells ABC Radio that the song is actually about "someone driving you crazy in a relationship and...kind of getting over it, in a good way, and being OK with the end of it."  

"I love it for that reason, because as much as someone's doing you wrong, you still have power in the situation," she explains.  

Rapper Jazze Pha's vocals are also heard on "Driving Me" and Serayah explains that they both "had so much fun in the studio."

She adds, "We were just throwing out words and we brought back [the expression] 'tenderoni.' That used to be a phrase in the '90s and we brought that back, so I'm excited to create and to be innovative and have the space to do so."

In case you're unfamiliar, the expression "tenderoni" was made famous by the 1988 Bobby Brown solo single "Roni."

The music video for "Driving Me" is also heavily influenced by the '90's and, while Serayah loves "what's going on right now" in terms of the current music scene, she says she wanted her first-ever music video to reflect the creative direction and style of videos from the era and artists who inspired her growing up.   

"Janet [Jackson]Busta RhymesMissy Elliot. [Their videos from the '90s were] very out of the box and they had fun. I remember the feeling I got watching that and wanting to be those people," she says. 

You can stream or download "Driving Me" now from the usual digital platforms. The music video for the song is coming soon, while the fourth season of Empire premieres September 27.

ABC/Randy HolmesGucci Mane's schedule is so jam-packed that he's decided to change the release date of his album, Mr. Davis, which was supposed to have arrived today.

The rapper tells MTV News, "I'm actually pushing the album back to October the 13th...I started having the idea maybe I should put it out October the 17th. But that's the day that I get married."  

He continues, "Friday the 13th sounds better, because my book comes out this Tuesday and I just want it to be a big moment. I don't want it to get overshadowed by my album."

Besides preparing for his soon-to-be-televised wedding to fiancée Keyshia Ka'Oir [kay-ORE] and promoting the book, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, he also says that he's "on tour right now."  

"So you know, I wanna shoot some more videos off some of the songs off the album, but at the same time my book comes out on the 19th of September. I wanna just really get some time to getting out here and promoting the book," Gucci continues. 

But that's not all: Gucci Mane's also currently on the cover of Paper Magazine's "Beautiful People" issue and his latest track, "Curve," featuring The Weeknd was just released.  

So who can blame him for wanting to give his new album some time in the spotlight? 

Look out for Gucci's book, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane, on September 19.   

Mr. Davis will arrive on October 13, while his wedding special, Gucci Mane & Keyshia Ka'Oir, airs on BET Tuesday, October 17.

ABC/Jeff Neira Tyrese Gibson is addressing the allegations, made by his ex-wife Norma Mitchelle Gibson, that he physically hurt their ten-year old daughter, Shayla.

“After nine years of working extremely hard to co-parent our child, I am disappointed to learn that the mother of my daughter has made gross and false accusations against my character in a shameful attempt to ruin our co-parenting efforts,” he told People in a statement.

He continued: “There is nothing I love more in this world than my daughter and I would never do anything to harm her well-being or happiness. Co-parenting is tough and it’s unfortunate when your partner tries to sabotage the situation with hurtful lies and irrational behavior.”

Prior to his statement, Tyrese shared a series of photos on Instagram where, in addition to denying the abuse claims, he called his ex a "bitter, resentful," and mean-spirited woman.

"Norma I know you can see this, I'm sorry I got re-married, I'm sorry we didn't work out I'm sorry you haven't been able to find another man since we separated," he wrote in part. "I see the attacks just won't stop so I believe this too will pass and God and the courts will reveal the truth....."

Tyrese's response comes after a court granted Norma temporary physical and legal custody of Shayla, pending a hearing scheduled for October 2.

The Fast & Furious actor was also ordered to stay 100 yards away from the two after court documents -- obtained by People -- revealed that Norma had accused Tyrese of hitting Shalya "between 12 and 16 times," and hitting Norma "a number of times in the past."

Tyrese was married to Norma from 2007 to 2009. The singer married his new wife, Samantha Lee, this year on Valentine's Day.

Getty Images via ABCRihanna’s annual Diamond Ball, which took place Thursday night in New York City, is all about raising money for her Clara Lionel Foundation, but all anyone can talk about this morning, is Beyoncé.

Dressed in a sexy, emerald-green gown, Queen Bey made her first official, post-twins red carpet appearance at last night’s affair, along with hubby JAY-Z.   

That alone was enough to drive social media crazy, but what sent it into overdrive was a subsequent photo someone snapped of Beyoncé with Rihanna herself, both of them looking their gorgeous, glamorous best.

Beyoncé gave birth to twins Rumi and Sir last June.        

Also attending last night’s fundraiser were Kendrick LamarLil KimDave ChappelleCardi B, and DJ/producer Calvin Harris.  

Also there was Rihanna's mother, Monica Fenty.

The Clara Lionel Foundation -- named after Rihanna’s grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite – was created in 2012 to provide assistance to impoverished communities around the world, including healthcare and education.

The Jackson 5's Tito Jackson says in a new episode of ABC's 20/20 in focusing on the 1994 murder of his ex-wife, Delores "Dee Dee" Jackson, that the day she died was the "coldest day" of his and his sons' lives.  

Tito recalls, "[My sons] said, 'Mom is dead.' It was just a sad moment, you know. It was just horrifying." 

Tito's son Taryll remembers getting the phone call about his mom's death, saying, "I was told that my mom had been in an accident and that I need to go to the hospital right away."  

Meanwhile, his youngest son TJ says he "had a sixth sense in my head," adding, "It's as if I knew already that my mother wasn't with us."

Tito and Delores met at Fairfax High School in Los Angeles, and they wed right out of school in 1972. She also became part of the whirlwind of fame surrounding The Jackson 5.  

However, in 1993, she and Tito divorced.  

Months later, at the age of 39, Dee Dee started dating then-boyfriend Don Bohana. Then, on August 27, 1994, she died.  

The Jackson family said they immediately had questions and did not believe Dee Dee accidentally drowned in the pool because, they say, she was terrified of water.  

Tito also believes "the bruises and the damage" on her body seemed to indicate that there had been scuffles and fights.  

Bohana, who was convicted of Dee Dee's murder, told the press after her death that she had been comfortable swimming in his pool and that the bruises were the result of his efforts to pull her out.  

The Jacksons, however, believe Bohana wanted Dee Dee to help him with financial difficulties and they theorize that when she refused, he killed her in a fit of rage.

Courtesy of eOne MusicMusiq Soulchild is back with a brand-new album out today, called Feel the Real.  There's a lot of music on this project, too.  

The hip-hop soul artist tells ABC Radio why he decided to include 24 tracks on the double disc.

"I was actually working on this album before my last album, Life on Earth, on some songs that I've been sitting on for awhile. So, that paired with new songs that I came up with pretty much what contributed to it being 24 records," he says.

Musiq continues, "I wanted it to come out fairly soon after Life on Earth just to let people know that I'm still here, I'm still making music. It's still available to you."

Besides the arrival of his highly-anticipated new studio project, the "Humble Pie" singer's also working with new stars, such as Atlanta native Willie Hyn, and Kameelah "Meelah" Williams, best known as the lead singer of legendary R&B trio, 702.  

"Shoutout to Meelah Williams," Musiq says. "She's an artist that I'm working with and we have a history together."  

Musiq and Meelah are co-parents to son Zac Johnson.  

Musiq adds, "She's starting a career as a solo artist now. I think that it's important that she starts her journey in being her own thing and standing on her own because she has a whole lot of creative ideas and a whole lot of creative energy." 

Even while hard at work in the studio with other artists and on his new album, along with developing his DENIMOJI app and Soul Star music company, Musiq didn't want to let his fans down with Feel the Real.

"I just wanted to be consistent with my mantra of making real music for real people in real time," he says.

Getty Images via ABCRihanna's Fenty Beauty line is such a massive hit that fans went into a panic after hearing rumors that the darker foundation shades were sold out.  

However, that's been confirmed as false...for now. According to Billboard, about 300 to 400 of the shades are still available to buy.  

But for any of RiRi's makeup products that are no longer in stock at the moment, fans will just have to wait for Sephora stores, Sephora.com and the Fenty Beauty website to restock.  

Those are the only three places where Fenty Beauty is now sold.  

Fenty Beauty, which launched in 1,6000 stores across 17 countries just last week, is Rihanna's first-ever makeup brand.  

In a promotional video for the global brand on Sephora's website, RiRi says that Fenty Beauty was created for "women of all ages, all size, all skin tones, all religions, all cultures."
