Last night BET premiered the first installment in their highly-anticipated TV miniseries: BET’s New Edition Story. The star-studded cast is drumming up just as much excitement as the iconic group did for over two decades! R&B Singer Tank has a role in this 3-part biopic, and his connection with his character is deeper than the film.
In a recent interview with TheBobbyPen.com, Tank shared his special bond with Jheryl Busby, the music exec he’s portraying in the New Edition story. Busby is the first black President of a major record label and is responsible for the success of many musical stars, including New Edition– and apparently Tank too. As a struggling artist, Tank was sleeping in his car and living off just $1000 when he first moved to Los Angeles as a young singer/songwriter. Busby believed in his musical ability and wrote him not one, but two FAT checks that saved his life and kick-started his career.
