Ashanti appears on the remix to Diddy and Bryson Tiller collaboration “Gotta Move On,” allegedly dissing Murder Inc. co-founder Irv Gotti.
Ashanti is coming for blood on the “Gotta Move On” remix. Featuring the song’s original artists Diddy and Bryson Tiller, with assistance from City Girls member Yung Miami, the former Murder Inc. Records act allegedly disses her former label head Irv Gotti. The song comes months after Irv made remarks on Drink Champs about he and Ashanti having a romantic affair in the early-2000s when the singer was in her late-teens to early-twenties
While on The Breakfast Club last week, Diddy said he approached Ashanti about being on the “Gotta Move On” remix after hearing Irv’s comments on her.
“I just felt Ashanti – because I think music and art give you a chance to speak your mind when it comes to the love territory,” Diddy said. “After I saw Irv do his thing, I thought, ‘you know, sis may want to express herself on this song.’”
Despite Irv vowing not to speak on their alleged relationship after the release of BET docuseries The Murder Inc. Story, Ashanti didn’t stay mum about her frustration with him.
“It’s giving obsessed / It’s giving you stressed /It’s giving you pressed / It’s giving this n*gga missing the best,” the former Murder Inc. artist sings on the “Gotta Move On” remix. “But it’s been 20 years please cry less / We can see you and your tears / The pain in your chest / But I got a new man / Yeah, you gotta move on.”
