Teen People has a story on Ashanti sharing her experience the day she learned her album sold over 500,000 copies and the partying she and the Murder Inc. family did later that night to celebrate. Ashanti writes, “I got back to the hotel at about midnight, and was about to conk out when Irv paged me: ‘We’re going out tonight. Get dressed.’ Ja was downstairs with a truck of people, and we all went to Lot 61 to celebrate my big day. The DJs were shouting us out, saying, ‘Ashanti’s in the house, big numbers!’ I had my little half-sip of Cristal (I don’t drink, and I don’t smoke weed. I don’t like the smell, it makes me fart and it gives me cramps ? I’m just keeping it real), and as I sat there with my crew, I reflected on just how lucky I am.”
