Dubcnn recently caught up with former First Lady of Aftermath, Shari Watson, aka Truth Hurts, for an exclusive in-depth interview. After song-writing through the 90’s for people like Mario Winans, Monifah and Shanice to name a few, Truth signed to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment. First appearing on Busta Rhymes’ hit single Break Ya Neck, Truth Hurts went on to appear on slew of songs with D12, Eve, Jay-Z, Xzibit, and DJ Quik, Mel-Man, Focus…, Timbaland and more. Her debut single from her Truthfully Speaking album, Addictive, was a Top 10 hit and featured an appearance from Hip-Hop legend Rakim. Her follow-up album, Ready Now, was released on Raphael Saadiq’s independent label Pookie Entertainment to critical acclaim.

In this exclusive interview with Dubcnn, Truth Hurts catches us up on what she’s been up to, sets the record straight on her departure from Aftermath, talks about working with Dr. Dre, Raphael Saadiq, Mel-Man, and DJ Quik, and tells us what we can expect from her in the near future.

As ever, be sure to leave your feedback in our forums or email them to chad@dubcnn.com.

Nice interview Chad.

Interesting to know Dre wanted to sign Raphael Saadiq.

Hopefully she sends you some Mel-Man tracks ;D

Dubcnn: When you say you have never worked with Jay-Z, when you did the vocals for The Watcher 2, how did that go down?

It wasn't Jay-Z's song, it was Dre's song and he came in and was listening to some tracks and came across that one and said, ‘I want to do something with this, keep the vocals and remix it’. It was an honor, when Dre told me that I was stunned.

Interesting!
