LHHATL’s DJ Traci Steele Shades and Then Laughs at Keyshia Cole’s Singing Abilities
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
With the return of VH1’s hit reality show Love and Hip Hop Atlanta comes the opportunity to get a second glimpse of some of today’s most intriguing reality stars and an introduction to some new faces on the Atlanta Hip Hop scene. Traci Steele is a newbie on the show, and on episode two, viewers were introduced to her complicated relationship with the father to her son, DJ Babey Drew. It’s clear in the first few minutes of her appearance on the show that she isn’t one to hold back how she feels, and her outspokenness should easily help her fit right in with the outlandish cast that is most likely one of the reasons behind the flop season Love and Hip Hop New York just wrapped up.
Since Traci is a popular DJ in Atlanta, VH1 thought it would be a cool idea to ask her about her taste in music by asking her to pick who she felt were the better artists when given two different names. We’re sure VH1 wasn’t trying to be messy, but Traci was when they decided to shift gears to R&B. When the interviewer asked her to pick between Mary J. Blige and Keyshia Cole, the shade she provided which was then followed by intense laughing pretty much makes it clear how she feels about Keyshia.
VH1: Mary J or Keyshia Cole?
Traci: [laughs] Did you just say that out loud? Did you just put them in the same f—- category? [Laughs wildly]. Oooh Mary.
Ouch. Interestingly enough, Keyshia has been getting dragged for the last 24 hours. Not only did Traci Steele come for her but so did R&B singer Lil Mo who recently made an appearance on The Breakfast Club and said not only should she keep Beyonce’s name out her mouth, but Mo says she (Lil Mo) can sing circles around her easily.
