The homie Lil Scrappy recently held his new album “The Grustle” release party a Diamonds of Atlanta. Scrappy has really been working hard to promote Â and the album will be releasedÂ Â on June 26.
The love and Hip Hop star Â first announced the album in 2009, as a true follow-up to 2006′s solo debut,Â Bred 2 Die Born 2 Live, a Warner Bros. release. During the last six years Scrappy has released numerous projects at retail, including two volumes ofÂ Prince Of Da South. During that time, Scrappy had tenures at G-Unit Records and DTP Records, despite no full-length material with either boutique label. I am just glade to see him back.
MTV reports Its very clear that Momma Dee would do anything for her children, including selling drugs and pimping to make ends meet. When Lil Scrappy appeared on Wednesday’s “RapFix Live,” he opened up about the lengths his mother went to to provide for him.
“Mom dukes was layin’ it down hard back in the day when I was coming up,” Lil Scrappy said. He recalled a time when a prostitute who was working for his mother left to join with a rival pimp. When Momma Dee finally met up with her ex-worker, violence ensued and a young Scrappy was there to witness it all.
“My mama caught her slippin’ in traffic and bust her across the head with a crowbar,” he recalled. “That crowbar was stuck in her head and she was sittin’ there shakin’.”
While the incident affected him at the time, the ATL rapper now awkwardly laughs it off. While Scrappy admits that he had to see some pretty awful things as a youngster, he doesn’t resent his mom for any of it.
“I had to sleep in a room with mom dukes, and my little sister because all the whores was using the rooms to do their thing,” he said. “But at the end of the day, mom took care of home. Me and my sister ain’t never had to hurt for nothin’.”
Erica DixonÂ also recently did a interview to let it be known that she’s been here from the start, and that sheâ€™s has a 7 year old with Lil Scrappy and the two dated on and off for 10 years.
She shared withÂ The YBFÂ about the distinction between herself and his relationship with the rapper.
â€œA lot of people associated Lilâ€™ Scrappy with Diamond and they assumed that my child was her child.
So I just want to give people a little insight on who I am and what I have going on. Weâ€™ve been a relationship on and off for ten years.
During that off period, he was with Diamond. That situation came along years down the line during the whole Crime Mob thing after he signed with Lilâ€™ Jon. When Scrappy was with Diamond, he was not with me.â€
