A look at hip hop's most famous women on the side
Kat Stacks’ story is a sad one. She was forced into a sex-trafficking operation when she was a teen. But she went full Fancy Baker after that and worked her way up to trysts with famed rappers. She claims to have had relations with Lil Wayne, Bow Wow and Nelly, among others.
Fantasia Barrino didn’t know her market. The American Idol winner was forced to fess up to seeing a married man named Antwaun Cook.
Unfortunately, the side chick label greatly harmed her reputation among people who would have purchased her album and she never had as much of a breakout as other former contestants.
Tamika Fuller was notorious for another reason. She hooked up with Ludacris while he was on a break from his main squeeze and got pregnant. According to an essay Fuller wrote, Luda begged her to get an abortion, but she refused. Given the connection she claimed to feel in the essay, who could blame her?
“There is nothing like the very first moment a woman connects with the child growing inside of her womb,” she said. “Those first stirrings of life may be barely visible to some people, but when I found out that I was pregnant with my baby, my heart immediately made room for her in my life. I would sit in the stillness and wait for a sign from her like I was waiting to hear the voice of God.”
