R&B singer Ashanti recently talked about moving past her early 2000’s feud with G-Unit and revealed which collaboration would shock the world.
While she could not see it going down right now, Ashanti admitted hooking up with 50 Cent could really raise eyebrows.
You recently that said that you’ve made up with 50. Will you be open to the idea of working with him? (Laughs) I don’t know. That would really be something which would shock the world. But will you be open to the idea? I really don’t know. I know him and [Fat] Joe did a record and I never saw that coming so we’ll see. (HHNM)
Recently, Ashanti said fans failed to realize the notorious Murder Inc./G-Unit feud involved more than just music.
“You have the term ‘guilty by association’ and it’s funny because I’ve had plenty of conversations with ‘thugs’ [laughs] and plenty of dudes and even with Fif, it was never aimed at [me]. [50 said ‘It’s just your crew.’] I caught stray bullets. … People have to understand it wasn’t just 50 and G-Unit and Murder Inc.. It was 50 and G-Unit, Murder Inc., the federal indictment, going to court. And then it was crazy because it was Irv and Ja going through issues, but it would be my picture on the cover of the [New York] Post. I didn’t have anything to do with that.” (“The Grio”)
Last month, the R&B vixen revealed rumored ex-boyfriend Nelly helped an apology from 50 Cent go down at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards.
During a radio interview with America’s DJ Whoo Kid, who is signed to G-Unit Records, she explained, “I would see 50 every now and again and I never had a problem. He didn’t seem like he had a problem. But, the first time we kind of ‘spoke’ so to speak, we were at the Vmas in Vegas and Nelly was like, ‘Yo, you need to apologize to my girl’. “We were in front of everybody and, you know, 50 has a personality. He was like, ‘Ashanti I’m sorry! I’m sorry, Ashanti!'” (Contact Music)
G-Unit’s Lloyd Banks previously opened up about apologizing to Ashanti for past remarks he made during their camps’ disputes.
“I had a chance to talk to Ashanti over the telephone,” Banks said in an interview. “I mean, my reasoning for apologizing, I just felt like I should. Even at the time when we were going back and forth in that feud with Murder Inc., she wasn’t speaking. She wasn’t throwing shots or anything. I think if you’re a part of the game then you should get played. At that time, she just was on the roster, so I just felt like it would be cool for me to just apologize for some of the things that were done in the past. Even though it was done in hip-hop, it wasn’t anything personal. It just felt that I should do that.” (BET)
