Next week, VH1 will air “Gotti’s Way,” a reality show about Irv Gotti and the come back of his label, The Inc. (which he’ll change back to Murder Inc.). In an interview with Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith, Gotti said he wants to show the world who he really is and he’s really a cool dude.
"You got to realize that I never was tried for anything in my life (before),” he said. "To go in there facing 20 years against the federal government, it was a very enlightening experience. It made me realize who is really with me in life. I don’t want to have to go through that again to realize it, but at the same time, it made me open my eyes. When I was going through it, it stripped me of working because no one would come near me with a 10-foot pole. It put like a cloud over my head, and no one would do business with me. Now that it’s over, it’s like I’m back in business."
The show will also showcase Ja Rule’s return to the music scene and Gotti working with pop star Vanessa Carlton and R&B singer Lloyd. Look for the show’s premiere on October 15 on VH1.
