Ashanti has been off the radar for some time now, getting her music career together. Since her departure from Murder Inc., she has only released a few singles but she has been hard at work on her own record label and new projects.
“The label I was with kinda fell under an indictment and that actually put a hold on everything. It was like a black cloud that I had to kinda come out of and we had to do a lot of damage control. I wanted to distance myself from that. I did Broadway, I did some films –I did ‘John Tucker Must Die, ‘Resident Evil’ and I had to regroup and say, “Okay, we’re going to have a fresh start and I’m going to try and put my business hat on and try and look for an different angle to try and approach music because it felt like the industry was changing dramatically in those past three years.” We know music, it changes, and three years is a long time.”
