Traci Steele And BabeyDrew Are Still Together – At Least On The Cover Of Rolling Out
Well look who it is, the “Love & Hip-Hop” couple who we can’t tell is coming or going as the week’s go by. For a woman who says she can’t stand the father of her child, Traci Steele and DJ BabeyDrew seem to be together quite often — perhaps they’re milking their last bit of fame as season 2 of LHHATL comes to a close?
For a feature appropriately titled, “Love On a String,” Traci and Drew got all dolled up and posed in front of cameras attempting to display their angst for one another. But as behind the scenes video shows, Drew still doesn’t take any of Traci’s animosity toward him seriously and she seems to be trying to hide the fact that she’s secretly overjoyed to be in his presence. Check out some of the Q&A from the interview and what this pair has to say about their “relationship” seven years after breaking up.
How did you guys first meet?
DJ Babey Drew: I met her while interviewing her for a position at the radio station.
DJ Traci Steele: But I was already engaged to someone else at the time.
Traci: Someone had wrecked his car and she had to take him to work every day. And we had a lot in common. We’re both West Indian and he would play reggae in the car on the way to work.
Drew: We’ve always juggled our business and personal lives from day one.
Drew: I taught her how to make money. She taught me how to keep it. If I didn’t teach her how to make money she would not be the hustler she is. And if she didn’t teach me how to keep money, I wouldn’t have money today. It was like Ebony and Ivory. Peaches and Cream.
How did you two grow close to each other?
Traci: The guy that I was engaged to didn’t accept the fact that I wanted to be a DJ and that I was so passionate about it …
Drew: Her first DJ gig he stood in front of the DJ booth …
Traci: … He wanted a woman to work and then come home. And as a DJ, you’ll be out at 3, 4 and 5 O’clock in the morning. And he said “my wife is not doing this.” And because I loved it so much, I had to give one of them up and I wasn’t giving up being a DJ.
Drew: And then she saw me and was like “upgrade!” …
Traci: No. And he said “you’re a natural” and he was pushing me toward my passion. So I gravitated toward him once me and my fiancé separated. Because I saw his love and passion for something and I didn’t even know what it is. And he was rubbing me the right way, saying, “you gotta do this. You gotta do this.”
