"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" reality star/producer Stevie J sat on the couch with Sway of MTV's RapFixLive yesterday for an interview that was entertaining in a Stevie J sorta way. Around the :48 mark, Sway basically asks Stevie J if he's conscious that he's making a total buffoon of himself and his women (baby's ma Mimi Faust and side-piece/artist Joseline Hernandez) on national TV. But Stevie J owns up to his mess, claiming that he's pretty much ratchet as hell even when the cameras aren't rolling. "I just live my life," he says. "I don't even care about the cameras around I just do what I do."
At one point, he even compares he and Joseline's relationship to former LaFace head L.A. Reid and his ex-wife Pebbles. One thing conspicuously missing from the conversation is the recent MediaTakeout rumor that Stevie J proposed to Joseline (click the link to see the alleged rock on her finger).
But Sway also made a point to discuss Stevie J's other mostly forgotten talent as a producer and former Bad Boy affiliate behind such hits as Biggie's "Mo Money, Mo Problems" and Mariah Carey's "Breakdown." He even digs up an old MTV clip of Stevie J sprawled out on a bed while being interviewed by an old MTV News correspondent along with Mariah Carey and Diddy. When Stevie dives onto the bed with his shirt off, Diddy calls Stevie "a ham for the camera" in a moment that could only be called hip-hop premonition.
The conversation really heats up when "Love & Hip Hop" executive producer Mona Scott-Young joins the couch and defends the show against some of the criticism its faced for its negative portrayals of black women. "This show is about these women, their lives, and the shit — excuse me — stuff they deal with," she says.
"They have every right to tell their stories. I think they're valid stories, and judging by the numbers, they're stories that people want to see and hear about. But if this is not your cup of tea, there are other great shows on other networks that you may view as well."
