6 Hip Hop Wives With Their Own Hustle

July 26, 2011  |  

Hip Hop is hard on marriage.  Any fame is.  But what can be helpful to any union, prominent or otherwise, is meaningful work.  Engaging in your own thing is a good mental health move and helps take the pressure off of a relationship.  The Atlanta Post has rounded up six women who’ve seen beyond the current spoils of marriage to build something of their very own.


Shante Broadus

They say a good marriage is fifty-fifty.  But if you’ve ever observed one up close, you know that somebody usually runs the show.  In the Snoop Dogg-Shante Broadus variety that person is Shante, aka Boss Lady.  Outside of the home she’s in control as well: she runs Boss Lady Entertainment and Management, where she oversees a range of talent; The Lady Lounge, a dance and recording studio; and CoCoRi, a clothing line.  As if that was not enough she also manages  I Am S.H.A.N.T.E, a foundation to empower girls.
