Since parting ways with Diddy Dirty Money, Dawn Richard has embarked on a difficult but no doubt fruitful Independent journey, birthing many an impressive project.
However, much to the surprise of her loyal supporters, this year saw her part ways with long time collaborator Drew Scott after what some were billing an ugly feud between the pair.
Opting to keep mum on the matter for the longest, Richard may be interested to learn that Scott is now opening up on the demise of their friendship, as is explained below…
Speaking to Kempire Daily, the ‘Places I’ve Ever Been‘ maestro said:
“We had a really good run. We were working together for like two years and I just feel like it came to a point at a time that, I think that it’s unfortunate how we ended up not working.
When you’re in this position you go through a lot of sh*t to get to where you want to be, or where you desire to be, or more where you need to be.
I think that at those times we become vulnerable and at those crucial moments it’s the people that surround you that are either going to make you or they’re going to break you.”
“Unfortunately in this situation it’s broken. I invested time, she invested time. It hurt when we stopped working together but it was one of those things that I think, it needed to happen.
“I wish that it could have went a little bit different than what it did and how it ended up happening, but that’s the nature of this business. You work with people today and tomorrow it’s not always the same. I definitely wish her the best of luck.”
Aiding the star to shape her ‘Goldenheart’ LP, Scott was reportedly invited back to work on her forthcoming ‘Blackheart’ project and- according to reports- crafted a number of pieces for the release. However, following their split, this material will no longer appear on the project.
“That material won’t be coming out. It’s out of respect for those that devoted their time and put in talent to her project and moving forward with the project. I know that she’s teamed with a new group of producers and writers, so we’ll see how it sounds….. I don’t think we’re in a space where either of us would probably return and work with each other.”
