Charli Baltimore chatted with Blender magazine about the troubles she’s had getting her music career off the ground. Her debut, ‘Cold As Ice’, was never released after her label folded. Now she’s set to releaes her debut ‘My Diary’. “It was pretty devastating,” she said. “And I’ve suffered a lot in this industry. First, people wanted to market me as some kind of supermodel, which I’m not, and they wanted to link my artistry with Biggie’s shadow, which wasn’t cool. They should let the poor man rest in peace and alow my artistry to shine alone. It sure as hell deserves to.”
Fat Joe, Eve, Charli Baltimore, and Cam’ron performed during the taping of MTV’s ‘Direct Effect Presents: Fashionably Loud’ on Wednesday (October 30) in New York City. Check out pictures from WireImage.com.
bThere.tv has a video clip featuring the ladies of Murder Inc. – Ashanti and Charli Baltimore. Both stars modeled for the cover of Hype Hair magazine. Ashanti says Chuck B-More is definitely a sweet person and says it’s crazy how they both ended up with Murder Inc. after getting dropped by Epic. They talked with Ashanti’s mom, who calls herself the ‘Momager’. Charli says she’s a fan of Ja Rule, Vanessa Carlton, Creed and Puddle of Mudd. Charli says she likes working with Ja Rule, who can bring the best out in her. BeThere.tv has since shut down.
AllHipHop.com chatted with Charli Baltimore about being on Murder Inc. and working with Irv Gotti, the Tupac Shakur story in the Los Angeles Times that implicated Biggie in his death, and the ongoing beef between DMX and Ja Rule. On the latter subject, Charli commented, “I don’t know what the hell is going on as far as that’s concerned. I just be wanting everything to die down. Negative press is kind of crazy.” As for the situation with Vita and Murder Inc., Charli said, “I don’t really know what the situation even is. It’s a situation with her management and Gotti; it’s not a situation of me and her. Me and her have a really good relationship, so hopefully, it’ll get worked out. As far as I’m concerned, Vita is still Murder Inc.”
Launch.com reports that Charli Baltimore, who was the Notorious B.I.G.’s girlfriend at the time of his death has denied claims by Chuck Philips of the Los Angeles Times that Biggie was in Las Vegas at the night Tupac Shakur was shot in September 1996. “I mean, I know for a fact that that was not the situation and, you know, I think that it’s really sad that someone would say that a dead man was responsible for another dead man’s murder,” she said.
