Michael McCary Turns Down Boyz II Men Reunion


Boyz II Men are recording a retrospective album to mark the 20 year anniversary of their debut smash cd Cooleyhighharmony, and it looks like they're going to have to do it without original member Michael McCary ...

Michael McCary left Boyz II Men in 2003 because of chronic back problems stemming from scoliosis.

Back then there were rumors that Mike was really forced out of the group because the other Boys didn't think he should receive full pay because he could no longer perform the dance moves and had to sit in a chair on stage.

True or not, whatever the reason they broke up obviously hasn't been resolved because Mike said ix-nay on the eunionray.

Nathan Morris, who sang Mike's baritone parts for the retrospective, told the New York Daily News, "We reached out to Michael to be on this record... Mike just completely got lazy."

Mike was my favorite I don't really want to hear a bIIm album w/o him on it. I understand the other men got to eat though.

It's so uncool of Nathan to make that statement. Whether they're mad @ each other or not, they started out as "brothers" & should remain as such. If Mike's condition hinders his performance then that's not a laziness issue, it's a health issue.

YEA I SAID IT!! said...

This makes your fans sad, Boys. Mike please reconsider; Sean, Wanye, Nathan -- say it ain't so cuz I love you guys and that's kinda trifling. I guess nothing has changed over the years, but Mike, you are SORELY missed. Now I love the Boys, but they are greater when all of them show up. : (

Heard this on Tom Joyner radio yesterday, and one of them called in to clarify things and they said Michael had a hard time and was in pain, so WTF, how is he "completely lazy" because he doesn't want to be in pain to do something his already done and succeed at. It's not like they're a new young group trying out for making the band, Mike already been there and done that and has the right not to be called lazy because he doesn't want to do it again, hell, they all should be over-it after being screwed so many times.
Tom Joyner asked the guy doesn't Mike need money, and he said he doesn't know but Mike has always been someone to find a way, so there it is Mike doesn't need money so he doesn't need to stress out and be in pain f*cking with this selfish-thief industry.
I SUPPORT MIKE'S DECISION TO LIVE STRESS FREE

Nate does just fine as the bass of the group. Michael never did anything but talk. BIIM is the biggest selling R&B group of all times. If you don't like them, its your loss, definitely not theirs.

Nate was wrong as hell for this comment. And they wonder why he don't want to join the group again. I wouldn't fuck with them either.

I can't do the pig latin thing. So what does ix-nay mean? Someone teach me!!!


BTW Nathan shouldn't have said that, that was rude and unnecessary.

that was a mean comment by Nate

If Nathan could say that openly I don't blame Mike from not wanting to take part. Who wants to go through drama of trying to prove how much your worth and try to get paid with a bunch of negros you started the group with.

Wow, who knew that Boy 2 Men had buttholes in the group, real shocker considering one made Brandi feel bad for not being light(sarcasm) ....I feel for Mike because Scoliosis is serious and very deforming over time!!!!! Its so serious that now all kids are testing in 5 and 7th grade during school for it.

Anonymous said...

Well, they know Mike is the only fine one with smooth vocals! LOL...Who wants to look at Nathans bubba lip cry baby self or that long headed polygamous or that thick one?> If they had a deforming back disease they would understand.

Anonymous said...

why in the heck would they pay mike less when all of them are old and cant dance anyway?

Anonymous said...

6:31 shut your silly @ss up! If they thought they did not need Mike they would not be getting mad! Mike was the fine and smooth one. He has an illness now and no compassion from his former group members. You can kick rocks with that foolish statement

Only stupid people diss boys to men. Their music is for eternity, they have many fans who would still pay big bucks to hear them sing. So sad the boys can't reunite, still love every member though, I hope Michael gets better :(.

The group sounds much much better without mike anyway...Throughout the whole album mike only said a total of 20 words anyway....The rest of the guys did all of the work....Who needs mike.....Lets see if he can make a record by himself.....NOPE

Anonymous said...

Damn, BIIM without Mike???? Datz messed up.Y'all have been brothers from way back guys. Being your greatest fan, I think Y'all better squash dat shit boyz.Still waiting for dat new album though.... Pls pls pls Mike come back. we miss dat deep voice, itz irreplaceable....peace out, your greatest fan Njeshu Bertrand from Cameroon, Africa.

Hey Mike...I still Love ya Bro. I've lost alot of respect for BIIM ...this comment made by Nat is absolutely uncalled for....totally messed me up. MAN.

Anonymous said...

What do you mean Mike never did much.In all there songs Mike was the one carrying the bass line which was the foundation of most of their songs.Mike was badass!!

Anonymous said...

I don't know if what Nathan said was true but, I have always loved B II Men, they gets down when they do their thing, I like them all, I do wish all 4 of them could be together again, but if not, I wish Mike the very best, get better brother, your health is more important than any amount of money, however, The group still got it going on, I saw the Old Navy commercial! They still have what it takes to make it in the music industry. I would still attend a concert with just the 3 of them, Good Luck Fellas! LIL MOMMA from St. Louis, Mo.

Thats called discrimination! Having scoliosis myself, I've heard the comments and know first hand the toll it takes on your body. It only gets harder as you get older.
