Honey Dip

75ec1_sm.jpgWhen you think of a murder capital’s female population, rarely do attractive models come to mind. Ten piece Clayanna Warthen, 20, reps New Jersey’s homicide central, Camden, but her features are the opposite of her seedy hometown’s.

It could very well be her diamond-in-the-dirt make up, which garnered her the first notch on her video belt. You first saw Clay as a femme scam artist in Cassidy’s “I’m a Hustla” (hustla dance and all). Backed by Will Smith’s assistant Charlie Mack, she has since landed in several of your favorite ’05 videos. She shook the shit out of Adam Sandler’s car in Nelly’s “Errtime,” posed as Ms. Toronto in Ludacris’ “Pimpin’ All Over the World,” hugged the block in Young Jeezy’s “Soul Survivor” and flirted with Styles in “Can You Believe It.

Each video featured Clayanna’s flawless, cream-coated skin, downpour of wave-n-curl black hair and lingerie-craving proportions. Though her facial features may appear Latino or even Native American, she insists there aren’t any immediate racial mixtures in her genes. “I am Black Black,” says the product of African-American parents. Still, love has managed to capitalize on her uniqueness, scoring a Smirnoff campaign (“I’m raspberry”) and a possible role in video director Chris Robinson’s movie Jellybeans, which stars T.I.

As much as ’Yanna enjoyed her rookie year in the music-video game, modeling is but one talent in her repertoire. Currently a junior at Richard Stockton College, with accomplishments beyond an average model’s, she’s headed toward a degree in criminal justice. “I took the LSAT when I was a sophomore, and did pretty good,” states the well-balanced Libra. “There were 10 law schools that I wanted to get into, and I did good enough to get into four. So in five years if I don’t have a multimillion dollar [modeling] contract, then I’m just gonna pursue my law career.”

75ec2_sm.jpgThough signing a print contract with Dolce & Gabbana would be a dream come true for the 5’6” cutie, her primary focus is becoming “the next Johnnie Cochran.” How does a beauty out of Camden, N.J., of all places, see the judicial system as the place to be? “Everybody in my family’s locked up,” she says, laughing. “But I’ve always been in touch with the law. Then I started reading law books because I’ve only been into self-help books. If it can’t help me, then I don’t wanna read it. I don’t wanna read The Coldest Winter Ever.”

Clayanna is definitely more than meets the eye. But when it comes to her pick of guys, who makes the call? The law student? The hoodstress or popular TV model? She answers to all of the above. While she’s liberal on dating in or out of the hood, she’s very conservative when it comes to her date’s pockets. Clayanna’s preference: more cash, less ego. “I can’t stand a guy that’s always bragging about what he got. The irony is that I attract most of those guys ’cause they look at me as some sort of materialistic girl,” she explains. “I don’t need a guy to support me, but you better bring something to the table. ‘I ain’t saying she a gold digger, but she ain’t messin’ wit’ no broke niggas.’” [Laughs]

    I went to school with this chick, first of all I knew she would be spread out like that cuz she was always lookin like a stripper at school.If you would see her in person you would realize she’s not much to look at but I guess that’s all she could of ever done with herself, and by the way she is very mixed, black people don’t look like that, let’s be real!!!!! The best of luck, jazz. They made you look pretty nice!!!

  • brittney

  • Ya’ll are stupid

    have any of you guys been to south africa? there are LOADS of women who look like her there! dominicans are black and have features just like her. so are panamanians, trinidadians, guyanese, cape verdeans…..man I can go on forever. just because you are not fully black does not negate being black. and yes she possible can be full black. she may have two different ethnicities- st lucian/ african- but her race is black. african american is not a race. please go reading is very fundamental. educate yourselves because everyone of you guys who made the black statment sounded very ignorant. a’ll are so stupid ya’ll probably dont even understand what i just wrote

    and the females who are hating are probably ugly as hell. and the males who are hating probably tried to holla and got rejected

  • Asha

    As a woman born and raised in Camden, NJ, I was floored when I read the article by Bonsu Thompson about video model Clayanna Warthen. I am not knocking her hustle as a video model, but the article depicts Camden in a less than flattering light–frankly it was downright insulting. Many products of Camden are known for their brilliance, scholarship, business savvy & other redeeming qualities (not to mention beauty). Bad press like this gives people a reason to believe that everyone from Camden is an underclass, uneducated criminal. We need to defy these generalizations, because many of the children in Camden (and other underpriviledged communities) buy into these stereotypes (self-fulfilling prophecy). I was born in Camden and lived in the same house in Camden (with both parents) until I left to attend Spelman College (where my roommate was also from Camden). Currently, I am working on my Ph.D. at Temple University, and I can give you a list of plenty of Camden products who have and are continuing to excel in business and academia (as well as in their personal lives). Just remember that young people read your magazine and you have a responsibility to uplift them, not reinforce racist and classist stereotypes.

    Mami, you are very sexy, and we have so much in common its crazy. I hope i get to meet you though, im sure you dont swing my way (im def a chick) but i know when you see me you’ll be attracted, its just will you act? I HAVE seen you a couple times, and you have eyed me, but i dont think it was in THAT way. i wanted to know if i see you again, would it be okay to come talk to you?
    PS-Dont me stealing my name!! :-) My name is Ayanna but everyone calls me yanna or yanni, joe right? :-)

  • Yanna

    PS- fuck these haters okay?? DAMN!! Can a beautiful woman claim her fucking decent?? And then yall would be hating like shit if she said she was mixed wit 10 different things, just like you wish you were! DAMN, get her dick out the back of your throat. You know whose ugly on here and whose not, cuz only ugly people hate okay?

  • Yanna

    Also, to yall talking about fuck the black power shit and all that? It is def time for our black women to come up in the game, cuz its SO fucking true that in order to be “beautiful” in america, you have top be mixed, or looked mix, how many dark sisters do you see on the front of magazines?? none? And that needs to change, now im light skinned, but i hate this stereotype of us mixed girls being bitchy and all this, and think we better than everyone else. I wake uop wishing everyday my hair was a littlebit thicker, and my skin a little darker. Why is this “look” considered pretty? Cuz its closer to white, and regardless of what people think, white people rule the world, which is fucked for every minority out there. BLACK POWER FOREVER!!!

    okay im done now :-)

  • carlos thompson aka black south

    dam she look as hell

  • Real

    Becuz someone is very light skinned that not make them mixed, becuz i’m a primary example and i’m all the way black. So of ya’ll darker skin folks need stop hating on us bright people. Shit ya’ll not all the black either if u want to be specific. Ya’ll keep on talking about all of us as bright people r concieted. It is not true, i one of most humble bright people u can meet. Some of ya’ll saying that mostly the video girls in XXL r yellowbones. That a damn lie, most them girls r all different kind of shades of black. So stop hating cuz she one of pretty yellas who was featured in the maga. For the record, it a lot of yellabones who hate their skin color, and tries to get darker than some of u guys. So come on now, be realistic look at Beyonce, Ashanti, Christian Milian, etc. With all of them fake ass tans. Oh yeah, stop being superifical Clayanna talking she should be thicker or she need a ass. She is pretty and fine (not like that) how GOD made her. So stop hating!

    what is this “too pretty to be black” b.s? beautiful females come in all shades. there are just as many gorgeous black females as there are white. asain. hispanic. ect. i swear, people can be so ignorant and it’s sad. i’m reading the half ass comments and the majority of you can’t even spell. lol. get a grip. she’s gorgeous – point blank. forget what race she is. damn.

  • Mama Mia

    You guys are some of the most ignorant people ever…get a fucking education and travel outside of your damn neighborhood sometimes. This is part of the reason black people cannot progress in America because yall stick on stupid shit like how black someone is or if they are black at all damn. Black Americans are so fucking self hating. The girls is beautiful and if she says she’s fully black then she is. I mean really it was ignorant for that to even come up in the interview but XXL loves to print the race of the eye candy girls which further perpetuates the problem of Black Americans not being able to form their own standard of beauty.
