Although Valentine’s Day has come and passed, Slaughterhouse’s Joell Ortiz is still on the prowl for a real love.
Explaining the essence of a past tweet, Ortiz broke down his current romance journey.
“‘Her’ is Mrs. Yaowa. It’s time for me to start celebrating with somebody. I’m tired of coming home to my little apartment. I don’t want to deal with the phone book of shorties [or] the substitute for Mrs. Right. I had just sat down on my couch and thought about that. And I had my computer in front of me, so I put it out there. Some dudes were clowning, like, ‘That’s a lonely tweet!’ But I also had girls hollering, like, ‘Trust me! I’m her.’ No one wants to be alone. I haven’t met ‘her’ yet. ‘Cause I think if I would’ve came across her, I would have focused and locked in.” (VIBE)
Ortiz’s initial tweet circulated online around mid-November.
“I just don’t think i met HER yet…,” he tweeted November 14th. (Joell Ortiz’s Twitter)
Last year, Ortiz penned a love letter record to actress Sanaa Lathan.
“I’ve been feeling like this for a while, I ain’t even gonna front,” he says on the intro. “This is my baby girl right here. If you only knew….You may not know this, but baby you’re my Brown Sugar, play me one-on-one, my hands gonna put a foul to you/I’ll let you score every basket ’til it’s all over/Love & Basketball made you more of an orange soda/You might Crush, sweeter than maple syrup, I got a chance to meet your dad while I was playing Europe…” (“Letter to Sanaa”)
Not to be outdone, Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West recently opened up about wanting to find a real love.
“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)
