Former member of Murder Inc. Records, Ashanti has finally decided to express her feelings about the real relationship she had with former boss Irv Gotti.
Even though Ashanti said there is no real beef between the two, she is a little upset at how Irv has been portraying her while being apart of Murder Inc.
“Me and Irv, we are, um, there’s no beef,” Ashanti promised in an interview referring to Irv Gotti. “There’s definitely no beef but, for me, again, just me talking about my movement and being brave and brave heart and kind of just revealing a little bit more of myself at this point in my career, I feel like Irv kinda paints a picture of ‘what happened’ with me and Murder Inc., very one-sided. I hear him talk a lot about, ‘She’s disloyal,’ and ‘Oh, she didn’t throw up the M’s and she didn’t do this and that.’ And I feel it’s time to kinda set the record straight on what it really is.” (“The Hot 97 Morning Show”)
Ashanti also explained how she stood by the record label through there toughest times.
“I’m a Libra, I’m a very loyal person,” Ashanti added. “Anybody with any sense of logic could see that I rode out. I rode until the wheels fell off. [laughs] You know what I mean? I went to the trial, I was there, I was filming in Vancouver and in my contract, I wasn’t ever supposed to leave Canada. I came to the court, to the trial, three or four times when I was not supposed to. I was contractually doing what I was supposed to not be doing, paying those round trip tickets to come and support and it’s crazy because me and Irv weren’t even speaking. Like, we weren’t even speaking at all.” (“The Hot 97 Morning Show”)
