True Hollywood Stories: Rapper Wives airs on E! tomorrow (May 13), giving a candid look on hip-hop’s family men and their relationships with their leading ladies.
The show will profile a number of prominent rappers’ significant others, including DMX, Mos Def, Paul Wall, Luke Campbell, and Big Pun. “People automatically think a rapper is involved with drugs and hoes — anything negative — so automatically, they assume that a rapper’s wife is gonna be some kind of hoodrat,” Crystal Wall, wife of Paul Wall, told XXLMag.com. “The show is gonna expose the good, bad and the ugly, and also that the stereotypical idea of what a rapper’s wife would be is not necessarily the truth.”
As for what will be revealed about the rappers, Crystal says that in Paul’s case, “You see the family man side of him — just everything aside from the grills, the gold teeth, and the diamonds and all that,” she revealed. “You always see that side of him when he’s rapping, but when he’s home, he’s a whole different person. He’s just laid-back and chill, enjoying being with family. You might also see us at the gun range, so you’ll see our gangsta side, too.”
The show airs Wednesday (May 13) at 10 p.m. EST. – Devin Chanda
