Irv Gotti blasted Ashanti online for telling Angie Martinez in an interview that she is remaking her greatest hits to release on her own.
“@angiemartinez just for super clarity. I own all those great Ashanti albums Angie. I own the masters. And I produced all those great Ashanti albums. So I also own a good portion of the publishing. What she is trying to do is re record all those great records and put them out on her label,” he wrote on Angie’s post.
“She can do this under the COVER laws. But she is basically trying to f*ck me out of my Masters. And make people decide which album to listen too or stream. Hoping her loyal fans will choose her version,” he added.
“But hey. I stand on the Magic that was created. And I wanna see her duplicate that Magic. It’s f*cked up really. But such is life.”
