When I had the opportunity to cover the live performance of Tyrese at the Atlanta Civic Center back in April of this year, I was trying my best not to be trampled by the legion of stiletto clad ladies in the audience. Some were dying to get a touch of the Capricorn crooner and others couldn’t hold their composure when special guest, Tank hit the stage with Tyrese in an announcement of the newly formed supergroup, TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine, Tank). Talks had been in the rumor mill for years but it all became certified in September 2012 at the Atlantic Records Private Signing Dinner.

Putting in work in their personal “R&B Bootcamp”, the self-entitled “R&B Avengers” want you to get a sneak peek within the TGT “lifestyle” and the process of “bringing that real thing back”. On a personal note, while it is indeed entertaining to see these gentlemen flexing their muscle and witnessing the humorous brotherhood among them as artists, I’m really inclined to see their musical direction and interpretation of reviving R&B and soul music within the present industry climate. Until then, here is the latest “behind the scene” video from TGT.
