UPDATE: 3.4.2015 – Memphitz did another interview this week with Chicago’s 107.5 WGCI ~ and he’s provided a bit more detail on this whole Toya/K.Michelle/Lil’ Wayne/Viacom/Being a Father to Reginae thing… (listen)…
I’m hoping this young man can get his Career and “Brand” (smh) back on track. Do you??
My initial thoughts about all of this, below…
Ok, I’m sleepy, so I’m not about to draaag this out.
Alright. We all know him as Toya’s (Carter Wright) husband, to whom which she is currently experiencing a separation.
Well, to be completely respectful of this young man…”Toya’s husband” is NOT who he is. He had things going for himself, way before Toya entered the equation. However, what I think (no, scratch that!) I KNOW happened to him…is what happens to tons of other men (and women) when they truly and completely fall in love – or feel they’ve “come up” on a Catch and can make more happen for themselves, by having said Catch by their side.
MeMpHitz ran away to the concrete jungle (the one and only New York City) from Memphis, TN and quickly made a name for himself by starting as an intern then skedaddled his way on over to VP/A&R. Granted this was a while, a while ago…but talent is talent. You either have it or you don’t. And clearly based on his track record (T-Pain, Jkwon, Youngbloodz) he has it.
The man lost his way when he married. The company he worked for felt he was being “extra” by being on TV and such and not taking his a$$ to work, so they termed him immediately. Subsequently, his ex, K. Michelle found herself with a new platform and she was determined to hit the scene hard! So, she did by basically putting MeMpHitz on blast (by stating he beat her – although she never, ever said his name) on her new national platform: Love & Hip Hop, Atlanta. As MeMpHitz was at a place in his life where he had settled in to being “Toya’s husband” and not really focusing as much on his own career (Mistake number damn 1!!) he could have made some great things happen for “himself” had he come out publicly to defend his character; instead of listening to his wife and doing what has caused him the most long-term damage of all: suing the VERY people he had tremendous solid relationships with!!!
MeMpHitz now realizes that “listening” to his wife…for the sake of her and “her brand” and for her not to feel disrespected was the dumbest thing his a$$ ever did! He should have put his foot down and went out into that world and got those damn cointz!! Mona Scott Young was willing to break him off, had he utilized the platform she “offered” his a$$ on more than 2 damn occasions. Trust me, Toya would not have divorced her damn husband simply because he went to do what the hell she’s been doing for years: parading around on TV, exposing her life. Period.
(And if she was smart…she would have encouraged that man to do what he needed to…which was Nothing crazy (btw)…to ensure he was contributing his equal share to the household! Sh!t Reginae will be 18 before her a$$ knows it. That Weezy money WILL be ending soon…so They Say).
What people need to realize is that it’s very hard for a “man” to not be at the TOP of his game. They tend to feel less-than and it F’s with them emotionally and psychologically. Men who are used to having money…always need to have money or they don’t feel 100% like themselves. That’s something women have to allow a man to rectify if he sees a sensible way of doing so. There was nothing at all disrespectful about shooting down “rumors.” He could have honored himself AND his wife. Defending himself would have helped him…NOT being ratchet while doing so? Would have helped his wife be more at ease with the decision.
Any who, MeMpHitz is back on his grind…focused on himself…using this media and these Here Internet outlets to garner some buzz…he’ll be gettn’ some bread from somebody, somewhere soon…if not currently.
