Ashanti appeared to respond to Irv Gotti's "Drink Champs" interview via lyrics in Diddy's "Gotta Move On" remix. And it looks like it's really time for Irv to move on.

Booooy, it appears that Irv Gotti‘s feelings toward Ashanti go way deeper than his issue with her re-recording her albums. In fact, Gotti revealed that back when the “Foolish” singer was “Happy” and in a relationship with rapper Nelly, he was silently holding a flame for her.


Reflecting on a 20-year career in an interview, recording artist Ashanti revealed how a decision by Brandy led her to appear on the “Always On Time” track with Ja Rule that made her a star.

There was a time when Ashanti was the hottest singer in the game not named Beyoncé or Mary J Blige. These days the first lady of Murder Inc. finds herself touring with her old label mate Ja Rule, dropping new music and doing her acting thing.

It seems like every time we look up, Ashanti is posing in a bikini. (Not that we’re complaining or anything.)

R&B singer Ashanti has a stalker situation going on, and the man at the center of disrupting her private life has once again scored a mild legal victory in his favor. Devar Hurd, who tweeted photos of his manhood to the singer’s mother, managed to convince the judge to declare a mistrial, but he was still slapped […]
