I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

AIN'T 2 PROUD 2 BEG


"Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg" is TLC's debut single and taken from the album, Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip. The song reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #2 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks, becoming their first single to reach the top ten on both charts. The single also reached to Top 20 in the UKThe song is very much about the girls saying that they don't mind begging for sexDallas Austin and Left Eye were nominated for the Best R&B Song Grammy Award for this single.



The video of the song is pretty basic. It is a fun and colorful video with the girls wearing condoms, baggy clothes, and Lisa with a big hats and sunglasses. The video shows the girls singing, dancing and rapping and will occasionally have the girl's nicknames at the bottom of the screen. Some shots feature the group outside with people in the background and then them in front of a white background. In a BET interview, T-Boz and Chilli said they were trying to warm-up to the cameras in this video because it was their first one. They said that Lisa was a natural because it was her "big break" and what she had "been waiting for". T-Boz also said with amusement that you can see her playing with her side-burns in the beginning, and Chilli stated it was her least favourite video they did. The end of the video shows the girls in character as hillbillies. The radio edit of the song is used instead of the album version. Their manager at the time, Pebbles, also makes an appearance at the end of the video. The video was filmed and produced in November 1991.
