6 Hip Hop Wives With Their Own Hustle
 

 
From atlantapost.com:

Hip Hop is hard on marriage. Any fame is. But what can be helpful to any union, prominent or otherwise, is meaningful work. Engaging in your own thing is a good mental health move and helps take the pressure off of a relationship. The Atlanta Post has rounded up six women who’ve seen beyond the current spoils of marriage to build something of their very own.

Shante Broadus

They say a good marriage is fifty-fifty. But if you’ve ever observed one up close, you know that somebody usually runs the show. In the Snoop Dogg-Shante Broadus variety that person is Shante, aka Boss Lady. Outside of the home she’s in control as well: she runs Boss Lady Entertainment and Management, where she oversees a range of talent; The Lady Lounge, a dance and recording studio; and CoCoRi, a clothing line. As if that was not enough she also manages I Am S.H.A.N.T.E, a foundation to empower girls.

Justine Simmons

In the Simmons family it’s impossible to keep up with the business dealings. Rev. Run’s teaming up with Tyrese to give readers a taste of “manology”, Russell has never seen a venture he didn’t like, Angela and Vanessa put their best foot forward with Pastry Shoes, and Diggy is on his hip hop hustle. Whatever’s in the air, the family matriarch decided to inhale in 2008 with the launch of Brown Sugar by Justine Simmons. It’s available through the Home Shopping Network, an institution way past it’s expiration date if you ask the internet.


Jewelry was also an idea that once introduced, quickly flourished in the Smith household. The Simone I. Smith Collection is for women but credit for the idea belongs to Simone’s husband, LL Cool J. It’s not her first venture; before she took a break to focus on their youngest child she sold bandanas. If the jewelry continues to do well it will be beneficial for both the family and cancer research and resources. A few years back Smith was treated for the disease, an ordeal that left her unable to walk for more than two years. In honor of her recovery a portion of proceeds is donated to the American Cancer Society.


Though Toya Carter recently married music exec Memphitz, it is her first marriage that might define her for many years to come. She started seeing Lil’Wayne in middle school, and while they maintained an on-again, off-again relationship for years, things fell apart rather quickly after the vows. And while going from one career man to another might foster financial security, Carter’s shown she has aspirations of her own. Last year she opened Garb, a boutique in her native New Orleans. For a city that lost so many to death and migration brought by Katrina, it’s good to know that a young black woman has stuck around to help rebuild.


With her music career over and T.I. back and forth in jail, Tiny was wise to generate some income on her own. In 2009 she opened “Tiny’s Nail Bar” outside of Atlanta, where mani-pedis are paired with a bar. The overpowering fumes of a nail salon might be the wrong environment for a drink, but we’re sure that doesn’t stop seekers of the full service treatment.

Lynette Townes

Before Lynette Townes came along DJ Jazzy Jeff was a low-key figure. But if in the age of social media and 24-hour celebrity coverage the couple have been able to maintain his privacy, that could very well be due to his wife’s profession. She heads up Remix Public Relations, a firm specializing in artist management.

It's better that they do that than sit around just having babies. Gotta make good usage of those resources. People get their friends jobs all of the time. Why not have your wife doing something other than popping out kids? Just my $0.02.

most of these women were with their men before the even amounted to anyone and stuck with them through thick and thin. therefore theyre entitled to a fair portion of the revenue their husbands generate and they deserve to have the right to make something for themselves. and as far as tiny, she had a flourishing career before there was even a TI. im like yall thinking most women are gold diggers, but im not naive enough to say theyre ALL that way. theyve earned their dues. so stop hating you lowlifes.

also, funding doesnt equal successful business ventures. it also takes great vision, dumbfu*ks!
