(AllHipHop News) This year has seen the fall of numerous public figures due to sexual misconduct accusations. Bill O'Reilly, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K., Russell Simmons, Charlie Rose, and Matt Lauer are among the famous men to lose their jobs for alleged inappropriate behavior.
As a result, the country has been engaged in a conversation about rape culture and sexual harassment. Singer-songwriter Ashanti spoke about the topic while on The Breakfast Club, and she shared her own experience dealing with supposed unseemly actions from a man in the music industry.
"I was in this situation where this producer - who's super dope, super talented, has a gazillion number ones. He was trying to take me out. [He said,] 'If you do this and we go out, I'll give you all of this for free,'" stated Ashanti. "I'm just like, 'What? That's never gonna happen.' Then he was like, 'Alright, I need $45,000 for this one, I need $50,000 for this one.'"
The Grammy winner continued, "He didn't understand that I had a bunch of big brothers at the time. I had to get it handled. That's smooth now, but it happened."
Ashanti added she is "sure" the producer has done that to other female artists. However, the "Say Less" vocalist chose not to reveal the individual's name.https://www.google.com/sorry/index?continue=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgLG6rWA0d8&q=EgQ0Gqq7GLLwgvkFIhkA8aeDSzVOl5CNN4F7uRVlMOHUGWhid_KxMgFy
