With all of the controversy plaguing the industry, we offer some celebratory news. Ashanti has been a force in entertainment for decades as she has moved from being Murder Inc.’s go-to hitmaker to the silver screen to the Broadway stage. Her business moves include her recent Web3 dealings as well as producing films, so it comes as no surprise that she is being recognized for her accomplishments by Hollywood.

It has been confirmed that next week, Ashanti will officially receive her placement on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The R&B icon shared her enthusiasm on social media after posting a screenshot of the news.
