Jessica Dime went from being the turn-up queen to the comic relief on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. The Memphis rapper and former stripper has never been shy to speak her mind but she hasn’t always been open about her personal life. What do we know about Dimepiece’s past, her love life, or her dreams and aspirations?
We got you covered with some tidbits about the pink-haired beauty that you definitely never knew.
Jessica Dime appeared in Nicki Minaj’s “Beez In The Trap” video.
Before Dimepiece made her mark on Love & Hip Hop, she appeared in Minaj’s “Beez In The Trap” video, sporting a more conservative brunette look. Jessica told VH1, “Actually when I worked with [Nicki] I had black hair but we did bond because I had a bang, sorta like the hair that she wears but I had a bang, girl, years ago before she even came out so.”
Jessica Dime used to dance to her own music
Jessica has admitted that she invested most of the money she made from dancing on her career, as an aspiring rapper but she told DJ Smallz Eyes that she actually used to strip to her own music. “When I actually started putting [my music] out, I was recording for a long time and wasn’t telling nobody, then when I finally put it out there, I did dance to it. They used to play my music all the time for me, when I got on stage, so that was a good thing.”

Jessica signed a three-album deal with Flo Rida’s IMG Strongarm in 2013, under the conditions that she would quit stripping, which she did take a hiatus from. After touring with Flo and singer Natalie La Rose, Jessica ended the working relationship because she felt the rapper was too focused on his own solo career. “I severed it because I felt like me and Flo are friends first, so I didn’t wanna get mad and mess up our friendship.”

She went to the University of Memphis for a year before transferring to LeMoyne-Owen College. Jessica told Vlad TV, “I ended up, stop, quitting college and that’s when I started dancing, doing all that. [I] still want to go back though, and finish.”
