I must admit when I first saw the tears rolling down this chick’s face on Love and Hip Hop as she told the story about my homie I had the pleasure of meeting, I knew something didn’t seem quite right. You know what they say “There are 3 sides to every story”. I will bet somebody 3 Martinis that MeMpHiTz never laid hands on a female his entire life.. I know the character of a Real Man when he approaches me and I definitely would be caught off guard on my personal judgement if there is any truth to these crazy allegations. Seems like another case of the Bitter Ex. Can we get a reality TV show called “Bitter Ex’s” oops! I forget we already have BBW-Miami and LA. Who will drink to that one with me? Check out what the homey “MeMpHiTz” said according to our friends over at “The Hip Hop Blog”

Nas Your Host and Chanita Foster at the WNBA Game- Atlanta, GA June 16th
You may wonder what Chanita Foster (Wife of George Foster NFL) had to talk about. Nas asked Chanita her thoughts on the partnership of the WNB and 100 Black Men. Chanita Foster ” as an athlete and a former basketball player, I definitely feel like sponsorships are important as well as necessary for organizations to grow.” I think this was a great decision made by Laurel (new President of the WNBA). She seems like a woman with a plan. She has the former history and experience with other Brands where I feel comfortable knowing she’s an excellent decision maker”
“decisions like this make me feel better about my decision to take “BEYOND THE GAME” my nonprofit organization to the next level by inviting other influencers and investors who have the resources to partner with me so the children in Africa have the best resources from supporters of our Organization.
