Swizz Beat’s X- Mashonda has her own column for Vibe and it looks like it’s going to be launching off with a juicy insiders sneak peak into the relationship of Fab and his boo Emily B. Check out what Emily had to say about being “the woman behind Fabolous”, if women should “seek” out rappers, and a glimpse of what their relationship is like when you read on.
ell this is an interesting dynamic. The former wife of a rapper/producer, Mashonda, sat down with Emily B., the “wifey” of Fabolous to get a look at what really goes down in a relationship with a rapper, outside of the stereotypes and rumors. Here’s a snippet of what Emily dished about her relationship, despite what rumors are already out there:
I don’t recommend women to go seeking after a rapper. Make sure you like the person underneath the title. Rappers need love too, they are just men at the end of the day. When they are 60 they wont be rappers anymore. It bothers me when people say “Oh you date a rapper.” No, I date a very intelligent man that has a career and a future. I recommend any woman to find love. It doesn’t matter what form. Just make sure he’s single and responsible.
After seeing each other off and on for 3 years, and spending our summers together, he finally asked me to move to NY to be with him. We built a friendship and we used it to develop our future. It took some time before we got physical; we talked a lot and had a lot of the same passions. I remember the first time he told me he loved me. I couldn’t believe that he said the words. It was a lot for him as well. I knew he was serious when he asked me to move in with him. He said “I have an extra room for your daughter, and bring your Yorkie too.”
