In a recent interview, Ashanti opened up about the time she was propositioned by a producer who wanted her to give her body for payment instead of cash.
“I’ve been in a crazy situation with one producer — I think I might have talked about this once. We did two records together. He was like, ‘OK, I’m not gonna charge you, you my homie.’ And then when it came time to put it on the album, he was like, ‘Well, let’s take a shower together,” Ashanti said on The Breakfast Club.
She continued, “And I thought he was joking! And then he was like, ‘Nah, I’m dead serious. Let’s take a shower together and I’ll give you the records. If not, I need 40 racks per record.’ And again, I thought he was joking because we had been working with each other for like, I don’t know, a couple of weeks.”
Ashanti did not release the name of the producer in question but the fans are guessing.
