Ashanti Leaves The INC?

Published: Thursday 19th Apr 2007 by Sam
It’s being rumoured that Ashanti has parted ways with The Inc Records- the label that catapulted her to stardom in 2002. The ‘Only U’ singer has apparently been in negotiations with Jive Records (home to Justin Timberlake, R. Kelly and Ciara) for ‘some time now’. Reps for Jive state that ‘if the deal is finalized, Jive can offer her up to $15-20 Million for a four-year contract’.
I say she should take the money and run! As much as I liked Murder Inc (yeh and what?…lol), they are basically over. The fact that she is working completely outside of the INC for her new album kinda made me suspect that something was wrong. Also, INC owner, Irv Gotti, has been recently quoted as saying ‘Ashanti is doing her own thing’ in response to questions about her status with the label. What does this mean for her new album, ‘Incredible’? Will it ever see the light of day?

    Does it really matter? I don’t even believe this for the simple fact of those numbers. Hilarious. Good publicity though.

    I was a fan of the inc too, so you are not alone! If she has parted ways with them i would be shocked although it is probably best for her career. People always hate on Ashanti but she can sing better than Ciara, Rhianna, and Mya! I wish Ashanti the best and hope she can achieve the success she once had or at least half of what she had. I was also expecting Lloyd to be on a different label but maybe his contract hasn’t run out yet.
