The songbird of Murder Inc was Long Island native, Ashanti. Her vocals first grabbed ears when she appeared on tracks with Big Pun (“How We Roll”), Fat Joe (“What’s Luv”), and Ja Rule (“Always on Time”). She would later establish a reputable career as a solo artist with platinum albums consisting of Ashanti, Chapter II, and Concrete Rose.
Ashanti is still on her music grind. While she might not be as big of an R&B artist like she was in the early 2000’s, she’s still able to grab caliber artists on her projects. Her last album Braveheart featured Rick Ross, French Montana, and more, as it dropped in 2014. She even hinted at working again with Ja Rule.
Baltimore was a very dope addition and rhymer for Irv Gotti’s Murder Inc crew. She nabbed herself a Grammy Nomination back in 03 for “Diary” and was featured on several Billboard bangers like Ja Rule’s “Down A** Bitch” and Irv Gotti’s “Down For U.”
