(AllHipHop News) Former assistant to hip-hop superstars, Winter Ramos revealed during last night’s (Janurary 14th) episode of Love & Hip Hop plans to put her experiences in the music business to print with a tell-all book, Game Over: My Love for Hip Hop. During a discussion with her co-star and former radio personality Jen “The Pen” Bayer, Ramos went through a few names that could potentially be included in her book:
“I’ve worked with Puff Daddy, Biggie Smalls, Junior Mafia, DMX, Eve, Ja Rule, Ashanti, Irv Gotti….I’ve dated these guys. I’ve slept with them. I’ve worked for them. I know the girlfriend. I know the baby mother. I know the wife. I even know the side chick.”
In the episode, Ramos stated her “friend”, the raspy MC himself, Jadakiss was the one who urged her to write the memoir. The Amazon book description labels Game Over as a “cautionary tale” for young women wanting to enter the music business:
“Winter Ramos, one of the new faces of VH1's hit reality television show, Love and Hip Hop New York Season 3 delivers a brazen and unabashed memoir of her life in the world of hip hop. In Game Over, Winter puts all of her emotions on the page leaving no experience, emotional abuse, or former lover uncovered. From her days as assistant to rapper, Fabolous and friend to Jada Kiss, to appearing on Love and Hip Hop and being Creative Costume Designer for Flavor unit Films, Winter delivers a tell-all book on her famous ex-lovers and experiences in the music industry. As the chick that was always in the mix and cool with everyone, Winter was privy to the cray beyond the videos, private flights, and limos that the cameras caught for us. Her reality and theirs was no game. Game Over is Winter's cautionary tale for the next generation of young women who believe that the fabulous lives of celebrities unveiled in blogs and on reality television shows are all FIRE! Stay tuned, because this GAME is about to get real.”
Ramos’ tale is the latest addition in an expanding list of hip hop tell-all books whose informational value varies from revelatory to purely novelty. In 2007, Nas’ ex-girlfriend, Carmen Bryan’s memoir, It’s No Secret more so supplemented the veracity of infidelity claims made by Jay-Z in his iconic battle with Nas than shed new information. However, Source Magazine Editor-In-Chief Kim Osario’s 2008 Straight From The Sourcerevealed an omitted Camron diss on 50 Cent’s “Back Down” song from his 2003 debut album, Get Rich Or Die Trying. Even after admitting to fabricating the majority of her industry shaking Confessions of a Video Vixen, Karrine “Superhead” Steffans is penning a tell-all book about her relationship with Lil Wayne entitled How To Make Love To A Martian which potentially could include details on the former couple’s previous pregnancy.
Amazon has Game Over: My Love for Hip Hop slated for an April 3rd release.
