After fading into obscurity and becoming beset with drug and health problems, former Jodeci frontmen K-Ci and JoJo Hailey appear to be poised to make a return to the industry.

K-Ci said via statement:

“We made a lot of mistakes and we just putting it all on the table so you won’t have to read the Internet and magazines about us. We letting it be known and K-Ci & Jo Jo “Come Clean” comes out in October.”

The brothers are allegedly clean and sober and are working hard on a new album and tv show called “Come Clean.” No word on whether or not this helps kick-start that long-awaited Jodeci reunion.

Now, the first thing I did was look at that picture. And I laughed. HARD. That, plus the previous videos and pictures of them passing out on stage and using a bodyguard as the preferred mode of transportation among other things, got me thinking, “this shit just ain’t gonna work”. Maybe they could do like every other washed up entertainer (or non-telented person) and do some sort of reality show…but them, I forget that not only were these dudes talented as 1/2 of Jodeci, they also has a great career as just K-Ci & JoJo. With that said, I can’t help but think that if they can stay chill from the spotlight ‘a-la Kanye’ and let their music regain the spotlight, well, maybe we can look past that hairdo you see at the top of this entry and trully enjoy their their musical talents again. Assuming the drugs and alcohol haven’t taken it away. Toss it up.
