Fat Joe Speaks Out Against Irv Gotti’s Recent Comments On Ashanti & Alludes He Never Witnessed Them Together In A Romantic Way: It Looks Like You’re Caught Up & Not Over The Sh*t
“Whatever Irv has with Ashanti, is 20 years old. I know he was making some points that mean a lot to him..But, when you keep ranting about somebody 20 years later, it felt like he’s not over the young lady. Also we didn’t know that they was f**king. The whole time, I was there, on tour – I never seen them together like that.”
“I’m not saying they weren’t because they were, there were rumors that they were, I never seen it. But I don’t need to know! It’s okay if it’s a documentary, but to go on Drink Champs and call her a b*tch [and ] keep disrespecting her [is wrong.]”
“I’m not the brother trying to stand up for Ashanti, Ja Rule was right next to him… I’m not telling stories about a girl I dated 20 years ago. In fact, I hope you die. Leave me alone….. So when you’re doing this, it looks like you’re caught up and not over the sh*t… On top of that, it brings less credibility to everything else you say.”
“Irv gotti, he did discover her, he did make her the hits, did shoot the videos. The man is a genius, it’s a fact. He signed, DMX, Jay Z, Ja Rule; He’s a genius, not a question. But he makes himself look crazy disrespecting her. “
He discussed in the interview being heartbroken after finding out Ashanti had moved on with Nelly. He stated:
“At the time it happens, any man….is hurt. The chick you, f*cking are in love with, is with this n*gga.”
He also shared how an intimate moment created a hit single. According to the decorated producer, Ashanti’s 2002 chart-topping record “Happy” was inspired after the fellow musicians had a love-making session.
Speaking on the songs creation, Gotti said:
“Let me explain the relationship and how it worked, and how it worked to our advantage….We just finished sleeping together, or whatever, I’m taking a shower. I’m in the shower, you know, a n-gga be creative after [sex] … I think of the whole track in the shower.”
Singing the lyrics to “I’m so, happy, baby,” he concluded:
“The energy, that record came about ’cause of our energy.”
