Ashanti Graves is not a celebrity, but he is quite famous as the ex-boyfriend of soul singer and songwriter Angie Stone.Graves dated the ‘R&B Divas: Atlanta’ star, Stone for a pretty long time before their dramatic split.
She first signed to the well-known Jive Records, but decided not to release an album with the recording company because she wanted to write her own music. Before releasing her debut album, Ashanti made her presence known by being featured on several songs by rappers signed to Murder, Inc. Not only did her debut, self-titled album break records after its release in 2002—selling more than 500,000 copies during its first week, setting a Sound Scan record for the greatest-selling debut album from a female artist and earning Ashanti a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records—it was widely critically acclaimed.
By age 17, she moved to Atlanta, Georgia, in an attempt to sign with another well-established record label, Epic. It wasn't until Ashanti met with Irv Gotti of Murder Inc. Although the label was known for its hardcore rappers and aggressive music, the R&B singer offered a more soulful sound to the label without losing its edge—a musical style that was inspired by singer Mary J. Ashanti first debuted her vocals as a featured artist on the late rapper Big Pun's single "How We Roll," which made its way to the top of the Billboard charts in 2001. She collaborated with rapper Ja Rule—the first of many collaborations between the two artists—on the song "Always on Time," and later lent her voice to the chorus of Fat Joe's single "What's Luv." With the success of those singles, it wasn't long before Ashanti was ready to release a single of her own, introducing her solo vocals to the world with the song "Foolish." All three of these songs were hits, simultaneously making their way to the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the Top 10 slot, with two of the three singles holding the No. garnered eight Billboard Awards, a Grammy Award (among five Grammy nominations), two American Music Awards, and the Soul Train Aretha Franklin Award in the "Entertainer of the Year" category.
Ashanti was born on October 13, 1980, on Long Island, New York.
After an introduction to show business in 1980s and '90s via appearances in television commercials and music videos, Ashanti made her recording debut as a featured artist on Big Pun's song "How We Roll" in 2001.
At the age of 12, Ashanti was following the usual routine of doing chores while listening to music on her headphones and singing along, when her mother told her to turn off the music while she worked—not realizing that what she thought was the radio was actually her daughter singing. After realizing her daughter's talent, Ashanti's mother entered into talent shows, where the future singer placed first.
Ashanti went on to actively pursue a music career, but she got off to a slow start.
