After severing ties with Ashanti and Lloyd, Irv Gotti ended up with ill feelings towards the latter. During an interview with MTV RapFix Live’s Sway Calloway, the former Murder Inc. honcho said that Lloyd turned around and disrespected his name after they amicably severed ties.
He also recalled dealing with Nas during the height of his beef with Jay-Z, with whom Irv had a close relationship. Gotti, who also put in a bid for presidency of Def Jam Records, knew he did something wrong but that it’s water under the bridge.
“I shouldn’t have did that with Nas. It was a mistake. Because above and beyond the music, Hov is my man. In front of MTV, I would shed blood for Hov. If I see Hov, I will get right in the mix of things,” he continued. “I should have never done that. But he knew it. He’s one of the smartest dudes, and he knew it. He said, that ambition. I said, yeah. If it means me going in them history books, I don’t care. I’m weird like that. That’s how bad I want it.”
