Still 'Too Hot for TV'?
Today, Sara is living life and looking good while doing it. As stated earlier, she and Tony are still together and her babies aren’t babies anymore. On June 1, Sara recently celebrated her birthday. In a thank you post on Instagram, she shared that she’s working on a documentary called Broken Things. The doc, produced by Nicci Gilbert, chronicles the domestic and sexual abuse Sara endured throughout her life.
Get a sneak peek of Sara’s new, chilling documentary at the end of the article!
If there was one member of Da Band that is most memorable, I’d have to say it’s Dylan. This may be because Dave Chapelle kept his name alive in a skit or two. Plus, I’m sure you can recall his West Indian vibes.
Dylan was another group member that was axed by Diddy. But he’s definitely kept pushing through the music waves. Since the show, Dili released Pain 2 Power, a project that was up for Grammy consideration.
Though his musical ties with Bad Boy are severed, Dili is still cool with Diddy. Ciroc sponsored his Pain 2 Power listening party.
Life After Da Band
In an interview with Essence magazine, Dylan admitted that he hated seeing himself on the show. He felt like the viewers didn’t really understand the struggle it was to endure the things he and his cast members went through. “Do they see the stress, the tears, the crying, the frustration, the lack of sleep, the constant grind? Do they see what you’ve really gone through? Nah,” he said.
But his antics on TV caught the attention of, not only fans, but of comedian extraordinaire, Dave Chapelle. Dylan was immortalized when he became a part of Chapelle’s Show. In the 2004 skit, Diddy, played by Chapelle, tells the band members he wants them to walk to Queens and get him a sugar cookie. The camera shows the expressions of all actual band members, but when it cuts to Dylan, it’s actually Chapelle. Chapelle, aka Dylan, expresses his disdain for being asked to walk to get a cookie and says that he didn’t get into the business to become a “sugar-cookie-getter.” He exclaims, “Who are the best five rappers of all time? Dylan, Dylan, Dylan, Dylan, Dylan! Because I spit hot fire!” And it was at this moment that line became one of the most famous lines in one of the most famous skits on the show.
This led to a meeting between Chapelle and the real Dylan. Dylan described the meeting as “dope.”
“I had never met Chappelle before that and it was the most amazing link up ever and we had shots. We had a few shots and it cooled us out and I can’t wait to see him again.”
When asked his top five rappers, Dylan didn’t include himself. He named Tupac, Eminem, Andre 3000, Lil’ Wayne and Lauryn Hill, according to Essence.
