In a preview clip, the “Must Be Nice” singer details an argument he had in 2008 with the mother of his first child, Joy Bounds, that led to him kicking down a door and leading police on a high-speed chase.

“I’m in my drop, and I was like ‘Man, I don’t feel like dealing with you all’s sh-t today. So I’m just not stopping,” the singer says about evading police officers. “I hit the gas, turned the music up. Next thing I know, my car smashed into a tree.”

Jennings was charged with criminal trespass, discharging a firearm near the highway, D.U.I. refusal, attempting to elude police, and possession of a firearm by a felon (which is a felony.) In the video, Bounds and Jennings’ family reveal how the case affected their lives.

The series is narrated by actor Gary Anthony Williams and executive produced by Arthur Smith and Frank Sinton of A. Smith & Co. Productions. Mark Rowland also serves as executive producer.

Immediately after Unsung, Uncensored sits down with Family Matters alum White.

He discusses his career as a child actor and explains why he’s now glad Bill Cosby rejected him for a role on The Cosby Show.

“Obviously not having gotten the Cosby Show was a huge blessing in my life, but I never like to say that like it wasn’t a blessing for Malcolm [Jamal Warner],” he says. “It just wasn’t meant for me.”
