Recently, Ashanti announced she was re-recording her early music. When she made this announcement, Irv Gotti spoke out. He owns her masters to her early work and accused her of trying to make people buy the re-recorded music, as opposed to the original work.
Ashanti dominated the early 2000s and was the biggest R&B artist of the era. She evolved into a sex symbol, over the years, and was one half of a popular relationship. For years, she and Nelly were in a serious relationship, until they abruptly broke up.
On the Fat Joe/Ja Rule Verzuz, Ashanti ended up stealing the show. Nelly crashed to perform with Joe, but worked his way over to hug Ashanti. That was definitely a huge viral moment, which sparked questions, leading to her saying that she was in a new relationship.
At “The Breakfast Club,” Ashanti stopped by to talk with the crew. She spoke on re-recording her masters, explaining why she did it. Also, they discussed the nostalgia that surrounds early 2000s music, returning people like her, Fat Joe, and Ja Rule to the forefront. While there, she also discussed her love life.
