With hip-hop couples hitting the rocks as of late, SOHH reached out to New York Power 105.1 “The Breakfast Club” host Angela Yee to find out what love advice she has for Kanye West, Lil Scrappy and Joe Budden.
For Yeezy, Ang said she sees thinks the controversial emcee/producer should look to re-spark an old flame.
“Kanye West, he tends to be very public with his relationships but I’m sure it’s hard not to be because he’s always in the public eye [and] everyone cares so much about who he’s dating,” Ang told SOHH. “If I were him, I might try to get back together with the woman that he was engaged to, Alexis [Phifer]. It seemed like he had his own thing going with her as far as the modeling and designing. She never really got caught up in the whole ‘celebrity’ [ideal]. She still has never really said anything about him. I don’t know what’s happened to her, but he needs somebody who knew his mom and maybe [she] would be a good one.” (SOHH)
With his ex-girlfriend now dating Soulja Boy Tell Em, Ang thinks Scrappy should unleash his true feelings about Diamond on wax.
“I think Lil Scrappy has a girlfriend now,” Ang told SOHH. “They look booed up. I think for Lil Scrappy, he seems to be the one taking the whole high road in this situation with Diamond and Soulja Boy dating right now. I don’t believe him. [laughs] I think that he is probably really hurt. They were together for a really long time and they were living together. I saw them the last time I was in Atlanta at Magic City, they were together. If I were him, maybe I would want to air it out in my music.” (SOHH)
As rumors continue to circulate about the split between Budden and model Esther Baxter, Ang believes the Slaughterhouse spitter should try some casual dating.
“I think Joe Budden gets too [much exposure],” Ang added. “Everything gets published on his Twitter, and I think maybe he might want to lay low for a while. I know in the beginning, he and Esther weren’t really trying to put it out there like that but you know, after a while, they were together and tweeting each other from the same room and all of that stuff. It feels like Joe Budden is ‘Mr. Fall in Love.’ Maybe he needs to just not be in a relationship and date for a little while before he gets locked down because he’s been in a few long term relationships.” (SOHH)
No longer with model Amber Rose, Kanye West recently revealed his romance woes.
“I’m a hopeless romantic and I’m looking and trying to decide who the mother of my child will be. It’s not going to be based off a whim of being in love; she has to bring a certain level to the table. I want to be married, I want that super-dope counterpart, that one woman, but she has to be super-fresh, super-smart and not overwhelmed by her career. I’ll find her, maybe I’ll be 38 … maybe I’m not fully who I am yet, maybe that’s why I haven’t found her … The main quality is that you know that this person will ride or die for you. Whether she’s mad at you, whether she’s with you or nor, she still loves you, she stills bigs you up in any circle. She doesn’t talk down about you to other people. That’s the main thing that I need.” (ID Magazine)
