Today's Blind Items- The Minor

In the wake of the death of Aaliyah, certain record producers were looking for someone else who could step into her shoes in more than one way. As I have told you before, Aaliyah was sexually abused as a minor by several producers and was treated like a piece of meat to be bought and sold by different moguls up to the time she died. A couple of years after she died, a fairly large record producer started making some calls about a singer he had working out of his studio. She was 15 and eager and soon, different label heads were scouting her. When they heard her voice and then saw how she looked, they started scouting her even harder. She was sleeping with one of the producers, the one who made the initial calls. Soon, she was sold to this pseudo porn star/celebrity sibling. He loves controlling vulnerable women. It is his specialty. Anyway, he started controlling the career of this singer. He brought her to the attention of this A+ list rapper/mogul and he signed her to a deal. By the time all the ink was dry she was just shy of being legal. Didn't stop the mogul. He liked to sample the new talent. He was sampling her on a fairly regular basis, BUT he also was involved with a current A+ list singer who was in his face every day.

Our brand new signee did fairly well. Her first record sold a decent number of copies and she had some quality singles. The thing is though, that porn star in charge of her career was feuding with the mogul and told the mogul he would not be allowed to hook up with the singer again. I assume he thought the mogul would think she was something special. Apparently not as special as the current A+ lister because the new signee was dropped and the word put out on the street. No record deals for her from any label. When someone ignored the edict, they were paid a visit. If the visits were ignored then other steps were taken. This was a total lock down of a career that lasted almost a decade. The porn star cost his client her singing career but he didn't care because he was with so many different women who were all earning for him that she was just a drop in the bucket.

Lately, the singer has come back into the spotlight and apparently she is now allowed to record and is starting to make a name for herself again.

Zilla1 said...

Btw, WTF does Ray K think he is and HTF did he of anyone out there get that much power?

FFS. LOL

Zilla1 said...

Ray J

Urgh..

longtimereader said...

Well apparently he has major connections with the bloods so that's how he gets away with it.

crystalmeh said...

I thought of Ray J/porn star and Diddy ad the mogul with JLo in there. I can't place the Minor though.

Where are these kids parents, ffs?!

crystalmeh said...

I second Ashanti

S.D.AUNTIE said...

No kidding. Ray j-never heard of his music.. Thought his popularity is from bangin k.k. and that train wreck dating show. Could it be that he is the alleged supplier to the stars?

Music biz is run by sociopaths. That's why anomalies like adele and actual bands who focus on music are precious gold

Mary contrary said...

All of the above, plus mya, Monica, all the members of all the girl groups... Etc

OB said...

Wouldnt it be someone born around 1988? The only one I could find was Rih and it isn't her. She's been around without a lapse in time for ages

Debby Boone

I keep forgetting to mention that I just love your username.
So I'm mentioning it.

crystalmeh said...

Yours is pretty fly yourself;)

shakey said...

Ah, I didn't think of Ray J, but I did think Piddly and JLo.

Airhead said...

I was thinking Jojo too but they made the first half of her career sound a lot more brief & Jojo had a couple hits in the beginning.

AyyyPapi said...

The minor does sound like Jojo. She was stopped from releasing music for quite a few years.

Ansari said...

Actually it was pedophile R&B artist R kelly. She was married to him. Before she died she was dating record producer Damon Dash, who is the cousin of actress Stacey Dash.

talldark&handsome said...

Irv Gotti/ Producer
Ashanti/ Singer
Ray J/ pseudo porn star
Sean Combs/ Mogul
Jennifer Lopez/ A+ (?) Singer

iLLBehav3d said...

Yep, I think so. Because she was signed to Rocafella. But the A+ singer is rihanna, because they came out at the same time. But Teairra Mari was supposed to be the star.

Sbreezy29 said...

Pretty sure this is Teairra Mari/Riri/Ray J and Jay-Z. If you've ever seen Love and Hip Hop Hollywood, Teairra is very angry and appears to have had some sort of trauma in her life to make her that way (sexual abuse?) The former drug dealer Sean Carter is disgusting, but nobody is nastier than Ray J's bottom feeder ass!!!

SeijnSei said...

Kesha - Singer
Dr. Luke - Producer
Flo-Rida - Rapper
1st single "Right Round".
I think she was 17 when it came out.

BTownGirl said...

Ex-girlfriend of one Ray J! Oy vey, the things you learn watching VH1 on a Monday night. He is a piece of s&*#.

OB said...

@kno this is my favorite answer. Still laughing! Wouldn't it be great if it were so

Kno Won Uno said...

Ha! Well, where did she go? Is Pat still alive?
These are the questions that never trouble me.

Zilla1 said...

Who was the porn star in charge of Kesha's career?

Dana said...

Ashanti is a good guess....but what about Maya

Sean said...

Pretty sure this is Jojo. She wasn't able to put anything out for awhile, out of nowhere she appeared on MTV with Timbaland once a few years back and now she's back in the public eye because Twitter allows artists to build their own following. It helps that she's hot as hell. She's been putting stuff out here and there, but just released Relax which is a really good song.

MysticDiverse said...

I believe the Teairra Mari guess is right.Says 2 yrs.after Aaliyah passed,which would've been about 2003 that she got into music so Ashanti would've been 23 by then.This really sounds like Teairra Mari. as she would've been about 16 in Dec.of that year according to Google.Thx.Google.:).

inga said...

lucky kktrash, she is talentless, so ray j just made this famous "film" w/ her...
was there scary blind about ray j & w huston?

H2O said...

ick, ick, ick, ick, ick

Antonio said...

Why wasn't JoJo able to put music out for awhile? Ashanti stayed putting music out it just didn't sell like she did before so I doubt it is her. I guess if you want to be famous you've gotta be ready to either get fucked, raped or molested it seems.

Soapy said...

Ray J
Cassie
Diddy
JLo

Desi said...

Blu Cantrell

Ashanti is listed as the answer, but the timeline is out of sync. At 14 Ashanti auditioned for Diddy and Biggie and was signed to a development deal. This was around 94-95. Ray J was around the same age as well so not sure what "power" he had back then as be was still in the shadow of his sister. Aaliyah passed in 2001, Ashanti made her solo debut in 2002 at the age of 22-23. There was a rumor that Ashanti had paid off a debt to Puffy around the time her first independent record was released. Not sure how or why Ray-J is involved, but it seems this was a situation between Irv Gotti, Ashanti, and Puffy. As her "debt" was paid to Puffy, she started making music again.

I wonder what her "debt" was at age 14.
