New Interview: Diamond Talks Turning Down Love & Hip Hop: ATL, Her Relationship With Soulja Boy & Much More

I haven’t heard too much from Diamond since she got dropped from two labels. I didn’t even know that she was still getting booked for shows. I’m sure her budget isn’t big! The Atlanta rapper who was rumored to be wearing flea market Christian Louboutin shoes recently chopped it up with The Jasmine Brand about her upcoming projects, the biggest lesson she learned in the music industry, dating Soulja Boy and turning down Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta. Below are some excerpts:

On her upcoming album:

Working on my album…I’m about to drop The Young Life, which is my LP. I shot about three videos, and I drop one video tomorrow-called American woman. So I’m working on getting the visuals together. I’m going to do about 10 or 11 videos, in the mean time I’m working on my album.”

On the biggest lesson that she learned since being in this industry:

I have a lot of lessons. But my biggest one is to make sure that you have a lawyer to look at your paperwork. We had a situation where, someone was stealing money from us and also there was a cease and desist on our project because at the time my management didn’t pay one of the writers who wrote on the album. We had no idea, we were touring, and so we had to sit out about 9 months until that actually got worked out. I think that it’s really important to make sure you have a lawyer. I know sometimes you can be eager to get the deal done, eager to get the money but it’s not worth it. So I would suggest that everybody get a lawyer.

On her relationship with Soulja Boy:

That’s my best. We’re best friends. His ambition, his drive to challenge himself to take on other challenges not just musically. It’s him being a businessman and matching his brands with other things. I want to say he’s one of the first ones that initiated me to think on that level, when I started spending more time with him.”

On why she turned down Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta in the past:

I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I don’t like to go into things blind. It’s weird. Because God is really dealing with me. I know that having faith, you have to step out sometimes and trust that, whatever you do, whatever decisions you make, whether it’s a bad one or not, he’ll turn around and make it into something positive. So now that I realize that. But at that point, I was a loose cannon. So anybody that would have came at my any kind of way, or if I won’t have reacted the way that I wanted to, I’m still an artist. So I didn’t want to do anything to temper my brand. Now I’m calmer, I think. I still have a temper but I think before I get mad. I think in a political way. As women we’re so emotional. But as man, they cannot get along with someone but still get this money together. So that was a combination of things and I didn’t really have the control to, have a lot of say so in my image.”

Don Bleek Exclusive: “Love & Hip-Hop” Is Expanding To ATL & Diamond Will Be The Main Cast Member

According to industry insiders, Love & Hip-Hop executive producer, Mona Scott-Young has BIG plans for 2012. She will be taking her talents down to ATL and launching a spin-off to Love & Hip-Hop. I am hearing that Atlanta’s female rapper Diamond will be the main cast member. The show will be based in Atlanta, GA and is in the beginning stages of development. ATL femcee Rasheeda and Yung Joc’s former assistant Rici have all been “tapped on the shoulder” to sign on for the show, alongside Diamond. I am also hearing that the producers of the show want Diamond to be herself in front of the cameras, but her publicists would prefer to finesse things a little bit.

Stay tuned to YDBR for more details, story developing.

New Video: Diamond “Lotta Money”

Atlanta femcee Diamond (formerly of Crime Mobb) dropped the official video to her single “Lotta Money” The video was directed by Dr. Teeth and features cameos from Gucci Mane, Young Joc, Nivea, Princess and Lil Chuckee.

Ms. 32 Flavors kept it real Southern in this video with her ATL swag. I like the song and video. Diamond is one of the new female emcees that’s on the come up. I think she will have a successful career in and outside of the music industry because she has a very nice personality and is very respectful. Diamond is in the studio working on her debut solo album, dropping soon on Jive Records.
