Benzino introduced the world to singer Althea Heart on season three of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.
That in itself has caused folks from coast to coast to talk.Initially Benzino noted that his ongoing beefs with ‘the machine’ (Jimmy Iovine of Interscope records) and Eminem have taken away some focus from Hip Hop’s Bible.Her arrival on the scene inspired a lot of folks especially women who felt and hope that she would move the magazine in a direction that would bring critical perspectives and unheard female voices to the forefront.For many this did not happen to the degree that they had hoped.Raymond Scott, better known by his stage name Benzino, is an American hip hop media executive and record producer.
He was known for appearing on VH1 reality TV series Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta and TV One original series The Next :15.Benzino was born in Boston, Massachusetts to a Cape Verdean and German mother and a Puerto Rican and African American father.Along with his longtime friend, David Mays, Benzino is known for being a principal of the hip hop magazine The Source, which was launched in 1988 as a single-sheet newsletter out of Mays' Harvard University dorm room.The singer made claims that her estranged fiancé, with whom she shares a son, had allegedly been aggressive to their family.After the hearing, Althea was instructed by the judge not to be in contact with Benzino, and then their interaction led to her arrest. Even her former “Moesha” co-star Countess Vaughn chimed in with a premature "Congrats." Apparently, Countess thought Brandy had a bun in the oven based on the picture she posted and rumors floating around social media.
