(AllHipHop News) Ashanti was the unsuspecting (and non-participating) bystander in the volatile beef between G-Unit and Murder Inc in the early 2000’s which led to her being dissed in numerous songs. However, Ashanti explains that there is no current disagreement with 50 Cent and Nelly is the reason for it.
While on DJ Whoo Kid’s Hollywood Shuffle, Ashanti explained how former boyfriend Nelly urged 50 Cent directly to apologize to Ashanti at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards in Las Vegas:
I would see 50 every now and again and I never had a problem. He didn’t seem like he had a problem. But, the first time we kind of ‘spoke’ so to speak, we were at the VMA’s in Vegas and Nelly was like ‘yo, you need to apologize to my girl.’ We were in front of everybody and you know, 50 has a personality, he was like ‘Ashanti I’m sorry! I’m sorry, Ashanti!’
Ashanti is preparing to release her fifth studio album BraveHeart on Februray 18th.
