Irv Gotti has talked about Ashanti and tell all their affairs. It resembles fat joe tired of hearing about it.
In an IG live, Fat Joe praised Irv Gotti for his musical brilliance, but also said the mogul shouldn’t scorn the R&B artist on Drink Champs.
Whatever Irv has with Ashanti is 20 years old,” he said. “I know he made some points that mean a lot to him, to his heart and soul. But when you keep ranting about someone twenty years later, it feels like he’s not over the young lady, right?
Fat Joe kept explaining that he didn’t know Irv Gotti and Ashanti were dating.
We didn’t even know they were fucking. ‘Cause all the time, I’m there! ‘What’s Luv,’ Big Pun record, on tour…I’ve never seen them together like this. Now, I’m not saying they weren’t… or there were rumors that they were. I’ve never seen it. But I don’t need to know!
The rapper said it was okay to speak his truth for the documentary, but doing interviews about her is not on the line.
It’s okay if it’s in a documentary, you have to tell your truth in your documentary. But to go to Drink Champs and keep calling her ab**ch, stay disrespectful… Ummm, I’m not the man to stand up for Ashanti. Ja Rule was right next to him,” he explained before taking a long pause. ‘I’m not going to be that man. But I’m not telling stories about a girl I was with 20 years ago.
He also said Ashanti has never disrespected him and that his need to disrespect her makes him less credible.
Irv Gotti discovered her. Irv Gotti made the hits and made the video. He signed DMX, Jay Z; he signed Yes (Rule). He is a genius, but he drives himself crazy and the woman has never disrespected him.
Irv Gotti’s Drink Champs interview
In the Drink Champs interview, he discussed how he found out Ashanti was dating Nelly.
I could get past your desire to be with Nelly. Listen, the moment it happens, every man is hurt. The girl you’re fucking in love with is with this n***a.
NORE followed, saying “Country Grammar”, which is Nelly’s 2000 hit from his debut album, which also bears the same title.
The producer continued to explain how he discovered the relationship between Ashanti and Nelly. The 52-year-old explained that he was at home, and when he turned on his TV to watch an NBA show, he looked and saw Nelly and Ashanti come in together after hearing some on-screen commotion.
As you know, the two dated for almost ten years before they broke up.
