Femcee Charli Baltimore is in the middle of staging a quasi-comeback, but a career full of false starts still leads to a lot of questions. And with Baltimore's history with Lance "Un" Rivera's Untertainment imprint and Irv Gotti's Murder, Inc., Charli has had her career stall on more than one occasion. In a recent interview, Baltimore explained the issues she had with Murder, Inc. and former labelhead Irv Gotti.
“He had the ball, he just couldn’t get it in the hoop. I think a lot of it was personal issues," Baltimore told Cherry Martinez. "I don’t think it was even his business savvy. I think he just let certain things get in the way of what was important. I feel like when I met Irv, he was one way and then as I was leaving, because I left Murder Inc., I wasn’t kicked off, I wasn’t dropped, I left. It was a little crazy. It was a little gangster, actually. We don’t got to get into the ifs, ands, and buts of what I did and how I did what I did, but it was a little gangster. Me and Irv didn’t speak for four years.”
She says the two have patched things up a bit.
“Actually, I was just talking to Irv recently where I kind of tried to pull him in a little bit with the record I’m doing, because I respect his ear so much," she says. "To me, he has a great ear and everybody, like I said, has their own opinion. But for me, creatively, we’re always on the same page. He’s able to bring out great things out of me creatively, as far as my writing.”
