Even before 'Love & Hip Hop Atlanta' aired, I was wondering exactly why Diamond decided to pull out. I mean, at one point she was one of the hottest female rappers in the "A" and she was dating the prince of the South Lil' Scrappy. Since the show has aired, there has been so much talk about Diamond and how she cheated on and left Scrappy for Souljah Boy. Mama Dee has been going IN on her as well so I really wanted to hear Diamond's side of things.
Diamond is getting back in the game and head on a 43-city tour for the release of her EP The Young Life, and stopped by Power 105 in NYC to address the rumors of her leaving Lil' Scrappy because he was broke and why she pulled out of "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta."
Check out excerpts from the interview below:
On whether ‘Love and Hip Hop’ has caused problems in her relationship with Soulja Boy:
[No]…because the truth is the truth. That’s why I don’t really entertain negativity and negative things. Sometimes you just gotta laugh at it. And I do have certain parts in my music where I do talk about the truth and I feel like when God presents the opportunity to open up more and really go into detail, I will. But for the most part, if i was a bad person or if i did anything wrong, I don’t see why my luck is so good right now and God is blessing me. I do right by him and anybody an everybody that knows me know that I’m a good person, I’m a very loyal person, so I’m not gonna say anything bad about them. I’m not just gonna stoop to that level. Not saying they're below me but, I just don’t entertain negativity.
On whether whether she left Scrappy because he was “broke”:
If that’s the case, I wouldn’t have been with him for a long time ago. It wasn’t about that. It wasn’t about us being artists. When you’re in a relationship with somebody, you’re in a relationship with somebody. You’re in a relationship through good, bad, thick and thin. That’s just how I am.
On her decision not to do Love and Hip Hop:
See that’s the thing, I didn’t know who the cast were. Once I realized that I didn’t have control over the edits and certain things that happen… I can’t play with my life like that. I been done went to jail…somebody got hurt. No but seriously, I have polished up. I’m 24 now, I’ve been doing it for 10 years and all that foolery, I just don’t entertain it no more. I’m too busy and I got too much to lose.
On her and Soulja Boy possibly getting a reality TV show:
That has came up a lot…I’m still debating. It’s tricky. You still gotta have that mystique about you and being an artist already established, it depends on how its played out. You can’t play with your career like that. Now, if you’re a person that’s just coming up, you’re a fresh face, then you can build off of that, but if you’re an established artist, it has to be done in a certain light. Maybe you’re showing others how to come up in the rap game or something. I know it’s gonna be drama regardless but if its on a certain level, then yeah. You gon’ have real stuff. People gon’ argue. People gon’ fight. It is what it is. But if its not set up to where its b.s., and you just let it flow then yea and if the money right.
