The phrase "my life is like a movie" is often heard during one of your friend's Facebook Live videos or during random conversations but, for the R&B group Jodeci, their lives may turn into an actual VH1 movie if what group member Mr. Dalvin shared on Twitter is actually true.

After sharing brief memories of their career journey while signed to the Andre Harrell developed label, Uptown Records, during a past episode of the BET original series Inside The Label, the North Carolina quartet, Jodeci, could be working with another network, VH1, to tell their entire story, as reported by Vibe, in an upcoming biopic.

The group, which was formed of two sets of brothers, DeVante Swing and Mr. Dalvin along with K-Ci and JoJo Hailey, hit the R&B scene hard during the '90s and provided several top charting hits still played on many urban ac radio stations today like, "Forever My Lady;" "Stay" and "Come And Talk To Me." The group was signed to Uptown under the creative development of now Bad Boy Entertainment mogul Sean Combs, and quickly rose to stardom.

They ultimately left Uptown Records to work with other labels and producers like Death Row Records and Suge Knight but, with little to no details uncovered, that business arrangement didn't work in the group's favor. As explained by K-Ci during the Inside Label, Uptown Records episode, "[they] don't discuss Suge Knight."

If a full feature biopic on the group does happen as hinted by Mr. Dalvin's (@MyRockStarStyle on Twitter) post, then details like what went wrong during their time at Death Row, and even added details on the violatile relationship of K-Ci and Mary J. Blige, who was also signed to Uptown during that time as noted by The Root, could finally be revealed.


Until the project is officially announced by VH1, fans can simply follow Mr. Dalvin for an "All Access Pass" to any developing details as indicated in his tweet.
