On Monday night’s episode of VH1′s Love & Hip-Hop, (VIEW HERE) the usual drama spewed from the reality TV show. Aspiring rapper Somaya Reece declared war on singer Olivia for snitching on her former manager about his ‘trifflin’ comments about Jim Jones’ girl, Chrissy and as usual Emily B was playing the fence, attempting to play peacemaker out of all the gals in the group.
The part of the show that stood out the most was the nerve-wracking idea running through Chrissy Lampkin‘s mind. After being a longtime girlfriend to former Dipset rapper, Jim Jones, she decided that it was time to get more about their 9 year relationship. Lampkin decided to take it upon herself to invite friends and family to an event where she would make a career announcement when in reality she would propose to her rapper boyfriend. Every thing that society says a man should do when it comes to marriage proposals (i.e. buy an engagement ring, bending down on one knee), Chrissy went against the grain despite the fact she was a woman popping the big question.
In a recent interview with Vibe.com, Lampkin was asked if it was frustrating to propose first. Her response:
“No, because I know what I got myself into. You know, he’s definitely younger than me and to be honest with you, neither one of us is really ready right now to get married, but I wanted to let him know that I love him enough and that’s definitely in my plans. We didn’t’ set a date or anything like that, but I just had to let him know. I do love [him] enough to show that it’s time to grow up and that I’m here for [him].”
Now ladies, if you loved your man, had been his sole girl for years, but had no ring…
