Those longing for additional music programming from VH1 are in luck: six new episodes of Behind the Music are on the way starting with the Sept. 10 profile of Lil Wayne (premiering at 10/9c). Check the details in the press release below:

VH1 is re-launching its Emmy Award-nominated and critically-acclaimed series Behind The Music. The iconic series that helped put VH1 on the map will premiere on Thursday, September 10 at 10/9c with Behind The Music: Lil Wayne. The self-proclaimed “best rapper alive” opens up about his childhood, his music, and his struggles, as he and the people who know him best describe his ascension from a poverty-stricken childhood in New Orleans to his reign as one of hip-hop’s heavy hitters. New episodes of the series will feature some of the best and brightest in the music industry today, including pop songstress Pink (September 17), self-proclaimed “King of R&B” Bobby Brown (September 24), rock star Bret Michaels (October 1), the “King of the South” rapper T.I. (October 8 ) and hip-hop megastar 50 Cent on (October 13). All episodes will air on Thursdays at 10/9c except for Pink, which will air on Thursday, September 17 at 8PM* in advance of VH1’s Divas Live and 50 Cent, which will air on Tuesday, October 13 at 8PM* in advance of the premiere of VH1 Hip Hop Honors.

  3. brittany says:

    wow i wounder how this is going to turn out.
    HAHAHA

  4. swany says:

    i love lil wayne and t.i

  5. Jarren says:

    Vh1 would you please do a behind the music of the first Destiny’s Child group. I think that would be so interesting. I really would like to hear the real story of what happened behind the break-up of the group because there are so many stories. You would have to get all the Knowles’ too cause I wanna know what Beyonce’ and the fam has to say!!

  6. brittany mashaw says:

    i love lil wayne to death thts mah baby i swear i would like for him to see this and im his biggest #1 fan

    Not knocking any of the current artists out, glad they could get the publicity, but I hope they show us some classic acts also.

  8. robyn says:

    Thank you…..this is awesome!

  9. sugartaste1 says:

    So happy to see that Behind the Music is returning but am confused by the choice of artists. Some have been portrayed before – Pink and Bret Michaels w/Poison – I’m sure there are updates, but is it enough to yeild a whole new episode when there are so many artists out there who have yet to be featured? Not crazy about the majority of rappers either, not that I don’t think their stories are any less interesting but could we add some rock bands as well? How about some Alice In Chains? Just a suggestion… Thanks for bringing this amazing series back. No matter who you portray, I will be tuned in.

    OMG, I barely could sleep all week waiting to view VH1 Behind the Music/ Lil Wayne profile. Although I’m 29, I felt my heart beating fast watching the entire episode. I love Lil Wayne; however, he’s always been a mystery to me because he’s the one person in the music industry that has captured my heart and attention. At some point I wish I was a kid again, so I can hang all of his pictures on my wall and tape magazine articles and pictures in my notebook.. but I’m all grown up so pretty much I have to keep it balled up inside. Behind the Music was like a instant access into his world. The part that touched me the most when he reflected on his marriage with Toya Carter.. He Loves her and she loves him… It’s just sad how young families are torn apart by other commitments when I feel they’re both UNHAPPY WITHOUT EACH OTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That 1 hour flew by.. I even let my kids stay up late so we could watch it together. It had a powerful message for them such as, DON’T PLAY WITH GUNS, STAY IN SCHOOL (when he mentioned he didn’t understand why kids say school is hard when all you have to do is your work!)We all love Wayne.. Time is money.. Can’t you see how much I’ve wrote so far… May God Bless You and your family!!! Although women and men may change relationships, it’s nothing like your first love. I lost the father of my kids Calvin Torres of Tallahassee, Fl on 07/10/08 and it’s been a challenge for me.. It’s hard to listen to some of the old Wayne like Carter 1 & 2 because it I mentally travel back to those days when we would ride around rapping and sing all the versus.. On the other hand, all of Wayne’s music is a apart of me, so some days I just sit back and cry so that I can get it out of my system… I will always love Wayne.. For me he’s Lil Michael Y2K a legend… Wayne, if you should ever stumble over this posting just know that I love you, Toya, and Reginae!!!!! MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!!

    wayne is genius! i’ve been listening to him since the first cash money tour. his next album should be $_^+~($@+`^~^+& led ‘Wayne’s World’ because he just lives in his own psychedelic world!

I love the quote on this ‘behind the music’ thing where weezy goes “I dont care if its heroine in my cup. its MY cup. #~$^%))_~~)!^~~` YOU.” I geeked for a good minute on tht,haa. and then he’s like “we didnt know ifu it was crack, cocaine, or heroine. all we knew was tht it was WHITE.” then he laughed.
