Hip-Hop is good for odd juxtapositions.
The latest eyebrow raising pairing finds Heidi Montag, most famous for her role in MTV’s reality series The Hills, hiring Debra Antney, the mother of rapper Waka Flocka Flame, to be her new manager. The 24 year-old Montag revealed her Hip-Hop power move to RadarOnline. Montag mentioned that her husband, fellow reality series alum Spencer Pratt, was going into the studio with a couple of rappers, which sparked her interest in seeking Antney’s services.
“Spencer is going into the studio with Wooh Da Kid and Waka Flocka Flame, and I requested that his mother Deb Antney meet with me and manage me, because she is just fabulous,” Montag said.
Montag could use some sound management on the music end. She has previously stated that she spent $2 million dollars on a music career of her own that has yet to pop off. Her debut album,Superficial, was three years in the making before its release on January 11, 2011 to little fanfare.Superficial sold less than 1,000 copies its first week.
Antney has had better luck in the music biz. The founder and CEO of the Atlanta based Mizay Entertainment, Antney managed Nicki Minaj early on in the rising rap starlet’s career and, after a brief separation, once again manages Gucci Mane. However, her split with Minaj was not on the best of terms. Nevertheless, Montag seems to have utmost faith in Antney’s abilities.
“I need her to guide me in the right direction and I know amazing things will happen because she really knows what she is doing,” she told RadarOnline.
