Making the Band 2’s Da Band disbands.
The hip-hop group whose formation was chronicled over three seasons of Making the Band 2 has been disbanded. Da Band is no more. It’s album Too Hot for TV sold well, but P. Diddy decided the group was over. During the show’s final episode, he kicked out Dylan, and later vowed to keep working with Ness and Babs. P. Diddy tells the AP that his “goal with Da Band was to make sure the world saw realistically how serious hip-hop was. So at times it was kind of embarrassing to me the way they were portraying themselves, not taking it as serious as most artists take this art form.” The season finale, which aired last night and showed the end of the group, reairs Saturday at 4 p.m. ET and Sunday at 10:30 a.m.. Making the Band the series is now zero for two after O-Town also broke up.
