“I really feel like manipulation played a huge part in my situation and Irv’s,” she told Martinez. “He would say things like, ‘Nobody wants to record with you, nobody fucks you like that.’ On the one hand, he made it feel like it was family-family-family, and on the other, he was like, ‘Nobody doesn’t even like you.’ »
Ashanti also shared how Gotti continued to disrespect him throughout his time on Murder Inc saying things like:
“‘You ain’t shit, fuck you… you ain’t even f**king loyal. You know I created you, made the world want to fuck you, you know what I’m saying? He was saying ‘N***a wanna fuck you because I made you look like this. I made you f**kable…’ in those exact words.
