Atlanta’s own rapper turned reality star Rasheeda graces the cover of Rolling Out Magazine and keeps it real when dishing on “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” and rumors about being a grandmother (mind you she has an 11-year old son).
In the issue, she talks about how she keeps it real, remains drama free and holds down her fabulous industry lifestyle. Check out some excerpts from the interview:
On what viewers can expect to learn about her on the show:
“What you’re going to learn about me on “Love & Hip Hop” is that I am very serious about what I do. I’m serious about my family and my relationships … you know. I’m just a woman that’s going hard for what I believe in. I understand that you have to create balance in your life. And I have been on the scene for a while, so being both old school and new school, I know that I have so much to learn and accomplish, but I also have the knowledge of what I’ve experienced over the years that will help me get there.”
On her business ventures:
“I do have my website, which is www.imbossy.com … It’s an apparel website that I launched about a year and a half ago. I’m really excited about it. It’s doing extremely well, and I’m always rocking my stuff. So if you want the trendy, fly and fashionable stuff, then you need to come to my website. I’m also doing television, of course, and working on the new album, Boss Chick Music that will be dropping really soon. I shot the video to the song “Marry Me.” I also shot the video for the song “Legs to the Moon” featuring Kandi [Burruss], so I just have a lot that I’m juggling right now. One thing that a lot of people might not know is that I get a lot of my songs placed on television, movies and video games. Those things are doing extremely well, so I just feel extremely blessed to be able to wake up every day and do what I love.”
On bringing back group Peach Candy with Kandi:
“You know, our schedules are both so crazy that when we do talk on the phone we really struggle trying to figure out when we are going to see each other. But the good thing is that we will throw out little things here and there. For example, “Legs to the Moon,” isn’t an official Peach Candy song, but it’s something that we’re putting out there to satisfy the fans that really want us to continue in that. Hopefully, we can get back together and do a Peach Candy album again, but with our schedules, we will just continue to do things together when we can.”
On being a grandmother:
“Let me tell you this; all I have is an 11-year-old son, and that’s it. So he better not be shooting anything out that thang [laughs]. I will say this, though; if you stay tuned to “Love & Hip Hop,” you can see how all of that unfolded.”
On being drama free:
“Well the cameras followed me, so what you see is what you get. And to be honest with you, I really don’t have time to be bickering with no b—–. That’s just not where I’m at. I am too focused on making money, keeping the bills paid, and making sure that my family is ok. I mean don’t get me wrong, I understand that a lot of that it good for TV … but at the end of the day, I just really want people to look at my situation and see the importance of family, and know that you can raise a child as mom and dad … together. We don’t see a lot of family structure in the black community, so I hope that people can look at my husband and I, and see that when they follow our story line.”
On her son getting into the industry:
“Right now, he is in this phase where what he wants to do [something different] every two weeks. But all that I want to do is just support him in whatever he decides to take seriously. To me, that’s what’s important. I just want to communicate, talk to him, and be there for him in whatever it is that he needs. At the end of the day, I just want him to be happy and be a great person.
