I've been wondering where the hell Ashanti has been these past few months. With lawsuits, label switches and a ton of Ashanti clones hitting the airwaves, where has the Princess of Hip Hop Soul been? (now, y'all know I don't really believe Ashanti is the Princess of Hip Hop Soul). Well apparently chica has been hawking her perfume line to the many misguided young ladies that aspire to not only be like Ashanti.... but smell like her too.
You'll recall the last time we heard from Ashanti she was coughing up $630,000 to a producer that her mom struck a deal with years ago. Well I guess she is recoopin' her losses with the release of Precious Jewel, her perfume line.
In other news, there is this new singer out on Warner Brothers called Cruna. Now of course that isn't his real name and of course he has some tragic history which seems to be a requirement for a record deal. His parents are big in the church and like Lyfe Jennings he went wayward and spent some time behind bars before getting his life together and singing from his soul.
His new single Hustla'z Love Story is suppose to hit stores this fall.
Watch the video and let me know what you think:
