Is Rapper Rasheeda’s husband Kirk about to get fired?Her recentmeetingwith Deb Antney makes us think so. Rasheeda and Kirk Frost are by far the calmest pair that Love and Hip Hop Atlanta has to offer and the show’s only married couple. Although they don’t have an ounce of the drama that Mimi and Stevie have and won’t be caught putting paws on people in a fight like Erica and Scrappy, Rasheeda and Kirk’s relationship is not exactly a fairy tale as Kirk is Rasheeda’s manager, a position of his that may be about to change soon. Rasheeda’s constant push to get her career to take off and the miscommunications that consistently go on between them has weighed heavy on their marriage. Rasheeda and Kirk, like most managers and artists, may not always see eye to eye but usually smooth things over with each other.
But after her video premiere party flopped due to technical problems and lack of promotion by her management team she claimed, Rasheeda decided it was time to seek outside management to figure out what her next move should be.
She sat down with Deb Antney, CEO and Founder of Mizay Entertainment and mother of Waka Flocka Flame to discuss her future as a female emcee. Now for those who don’t know, Antney managed Nicki Minaj at one point. And seeing how things are happening for Nicki, Rasheeda thought who else better to go to than Flocka’s mom.
The conversation began with Antney bringing up a couple of tidbits about Rasheeda that she thought were true, one of them being that Rasheeda was a grandmother. Guess Deb caught a glimpse of all the pictures circulating around the Internet of Rasheeda holding a newborn baby in her arms.
Rasheeda quickly responded claiming that she isn’t grandma for her son hasn’t had a little one yet:
“Well first of all, I’m not a grandmother. I mean, let me just make one thing clear, I have one child that I birthed who’s eleven years old. So that’s it. So whatever other attachments, you know what, I just don’t time to sit here and try to answer everybody’s questions and the whole wide world…”
That last comment of hers didn’t sit too well with Antney as she straight up told Rasheeda that she will ask whatever questions she needs to about potential artists that she may put her name on. She also got on Rasheeda for blaming everybody else for the pitfalls of her career instead of taking responsibility and owning up to it herself.
Antney also informed Rasheeda that as crunk as she was about her single “Marry Me”, it just wasn’t a good track.
The “Georgia Peach” Rasheeda has been going so hard in the game for years, even back when she was with former group Da Kaperz. And sadly, has yet to become a heavyweight in the industry. And the way Deb sees it and many other people for that matter, poor management and a lack of self confidence could be the cause of her career standstill, a fact that is hard for Rasheeda to face. Speaking of poor management though, it’s been rumored that Waka Flocka fired his mother as his manager because she was allegedly stealing money from him, a tidbit Rasheeda might want to take heed to.
