Flashback! ‘Love And Hip Hop’ Star Chink Santana All Booed Up With Ashanti In Her “Don’t Let Them” Video

Love & Hip Hop star Chink Santana is with Chrissy Monroe these days, but you may have caught that moment in the premiere episode where he mentioned how he used to work with Ashanti. Chink produced Ashanti’s first two albums and even appeared in her video for “Don’t Let Them” back in 2005, and the nature of their relationship was always up for debate in the rumor mill…Ashanti was with Nelly at the time and report swirled that both she and Keyshia Cole were both dating (and feuding over) Chink.

In a 2012 interview, Chink said of Ashanti “I love her to death…Every record that she ever had was a hit record and I gave it to her. She needs me like I need her. She’s the most phenomenal writer I’ve ever met before. I don’t know what else to say about her without getting all emotional. I’ll give her my ankle if she needed it.”

Check out these photos below of the two from back in the day and see what you think about their relationship!
