TLC – “Way Back” feat. Snoop Dogg

TLC taking a page from the De La and getting their funding up front, en masse, straight from the fans (read: instead of some ‘label’). They did a Kickstarter for the LP joint they are jumping off in June (the 30th to be precise). And to all the purists, don’t worry.
