Social media is calling Irv Gotti a major cornball because he won’t stop talking about past dalliance with Ashanti (while married by the way)…and now he is claiming she left him high and dry when he was arrested in 2005.
Murder Inc’s headquarters were raided and the feds arrested Gotti alleging “that the Murder Inc. empire took in garbage bags and shoeboxes stuffed with drug money and laundered it for a notorious Queens crack and heroin kingpin,” according to The Post.
Gotti was later acquitted, but Ashanti did not stand by him.
“When the feds hit, she ran like the cockroaches when you turn the lights on,” he told Page Six.
“She was ready to get the f-ck off of the Murder Inc. label and she was ready to abandon me, the person who made her. And yes I can say I made her. How do you know I can say that firmly? The minute I stop making her records . . . She has not made a hit since.”
Irv even though he continually is being corny isn’t lying. Ashanti has not had a hit since she left Murder Inc. There are probably multiple reasons for that, but Irv been petty is definitely one.
Irv Gotti who owns all those great Ashanti Albums says that the musician is trying to fuck him out of his Masters. According to Irv Gotti in a comment under a video Angie Martinez dropped on Instagram, Ashanti can re-record her albums under the COVER laws but since she wants to take money out of his pockets, she’s doing otherwise.
“Just for super clarity. I own all those great Ashanti Albums Angie,” he commented under Martinez’s post. “I own the Masters. And I Produced all those great Ashanti Albums. So, I also own a good portion of the Publishing. What she is trying to do is re-record all those great records. And put them out on her label. She can do this under the COVER laws. But she is basically trying to f*ck me out of my Masters.”
No one wants to end up in jail.
