Hip-Hop producer Irv Gotti just went on Funkmaster Flex’s radio show and spilled the beans on his affair with pop star Ashanti- while she was with Nelly! These rumors are borderline ancient, but to have them confirmed after all this time is pretty cool.


The early 2000’s were a very interesting time for pop music. Nelly was blowing up the airwaves with “Hot in Herre” and many¬†many¬†subsequent hits following. His dreamy smile and rap singing style solidified him in the hearts of tweens everywhere.


Ashanti was a thick-bodied beauty with a sweet, breathy, bird-like voice. She dropped chart-topping bombs like “Foolish” and “Always On Time.” Ashanti met Irv Gotti who loved her voice and began putting her on the hooks for rap songs; these duets would become some of her most successful musical work.
