TCB’s Polo is Alive, in Intensive Care

polo

Despite persistent rumors (and an #RIPPolo trending topic on Twitter) to the contrary, Polo, frontman for go-go favorites TCB is currently alive, though in intensive care. He was rushed to the hospital last night after collapsing on stage.

"He's not dead," TCB's manager Ben Adda confirmed. "He's in stable condition right now, they've got him sedated."

The cause of his collapse and additional details are unclear at this time. Here's hoping for a quick recovery.

  • T. Williams

    DC hoodrat. WOW it would take a hood rat to say something like that. The fact that you have DC in front of hoodrat is not a representation of real DC natives, asshole. How disrespectful, I can bet you are from another band jealous of TCB's success.

  • Go-Go Security Legand

    Wow, just seen him a few weeks ago at the MVA on Central Ave. I have known that young man for a very long time. From his days at the 501, from the parks in the hood. I think prayer is the key, Jesus is the the lock, and God is the door. With that being said, this isnt the time for smart comments or petty thoughts, his family needs our support so lets pray for a speedy recovery.

  • Go-Go Security Legend Reitred

    Its amazing how this life has fate approach you or affect you. Go-Go Legend I know who you are, and you are a Legend most def. Dont forget I was at the MVA with you that day and we talk to Polo for about 20 minutes or so. You never know how this life will turn out. Polo looked well and was he same ole self. Cant believe he is in a Coma. Its all kinds of stupid ass rumore floating around here. Ben said Polo is fighting for his life so thats what I believe. As far as the HoodRat broad, you must be upset or something because he didnt get you in a show for free or something, to say who cares when a man, a father, a nephew, an uncle, a cousin, just a hunam being who is fighting for his life says a lot about you as a person, and you need prayer and healing as well, so I will also pray fro you.

  • toya

  • THE AUTHOR

    IM VERY UPSET TO SEE PPL (HOOD RAT) MAKING COMMENTS LIKE THAT ABOUT MY FRIEND. I WROTE A BOOK ABOUT REGGIE AND THE BAND AND I'M NONE REGGIE FOR YEARS. HE WAS ALWAYS SUPPOTIVE OF MY WORK AND WHEN I WAS SELLING CLOTHES FOR BLAC LABEL HE MADE SURE EVERYONE BOUGHT SOMETHING FROM ME. HE IS A KIND AND CARING PERSON AND YOU SHOULD REALLY BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF FOR MAKING SUCH A COWARDLY STATEMENT!!!

  • FRANK WHITE

    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: U BLACK BASTARDS NEED TO FIND ANOTHER ROLE MODEL BESIDES SOME GO-GO MEMBER MORE THEN HALF OF U IN DC DONT EVEN ATTEND SCHOOL ON A REGULAR. THE COURTS ARE FILLED WITH BLACK YOUTH EVERYDAY GOING TO JAIL IN THE DISTRICT. GET OFF OF WELFARE AND SECTION 8 STOP ACTING LIKE FUCKING ANIMALS AND MAYBE SOMEBODY MIGHT LOOK AT U A DIFFERENT WAY. BUT UNTIL THEN KEEP DYING IN THESE STREET.

    AND YES I AM WHITE GOD BLESS

  • whiteboy from homer ave

    real talk frank white u a bitch an i promise that if this happened to u NO1 WOULD CARE, POLO is a good dude got big love in the streets

  • http://sxuxdxdxexn@gmail.com Julian Sutton aka FACE, JU the drummer

    There is a serious lack of respect for black men in the inner city ,and a greater loss of hope for young men who are looking for a positive role model. Mr. Burwell(Polo from T.C.B.),tries to provide a safe haven for local youth to participate in pure fun while being entertained. All negative remarks should be kept to a minimum and regarded as ignorant.A good man is fighting for his life and should have nothing but uplifting words to read upon his recovery !

  • toya

  • Truth Lyfe

    @Frank White.....Man, you are on some other ish. First of all, that caps button on the keyboard...use it. Who are you to get on a page that is for support and prayer and spread such filth. You do not have the right to do that. If you knew anything, you would know that you DO NOT represent all white folks and to declare your race is pretty presumptuous on your part. The go-go scene is a somewhat tight knit family of fans and performers that originates right here in our nations capitol. This scene has been around for 30+ years and has saved many a city youth (no matter the race) from another life. Yes, there is more to it and there are good sides and bad sides to the scene. (its still the bricks it aint Disney) I urge you to google performers such as Chuck Brown, Junkyard, Huckabucks, TCB, Rare Essence, and many others. While on Google I urge you to look up COMMON, IGNORANT, and PECKERWOOD...Lastly, for somebody that seems to know so much, you assumed he was in the hospital for gunshots or the like..He collapsed (just like you will when your lil girl ends up with a man of color) You and ppl like you and the media need to evolve. Nas sez something intelligent...overlooked--Lil Jon gets up and sez dumb ish and its all you hear. I better stop this isnt about that right now. Polo, I dig your music and my prayers go out to you and your family in this difficult time....and yes I am human...god bless

  • http://CITYPAPER GODS ANGEL

    Its so sad to get on this page and read such ignorance people have to say . Folks just dont get it GOD is trying to get our attention as to BUNNI if you are a male or female however you are very IGNORANT and I say that in caps this is a very very serious moment if you are a typical hater cause polo has risen and you still on the corner beatin on fences and maybe a bucket or two give that man some respect. Folks in respect of the family and friends if you cant say nothing intelligent dont say nothing at all keep your HARSH feelings to your self cause when its one of your love ones or a close friend you are going to want somebody to pray for your strenght. GET A LIFE DO SOMETHING WITH YOUR LIFE AND STOP BEING A HATERRRRR!!!! INCREASE THE PEACE FOLKS WHATS HARD ABOUT THAT !!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!
