Tonight [Sept 3], during the reunion special of VH1′s Love & Hip Hop ATL we all saw Lil Scrappy throw out his player card and pop the question to the mother of his child Erica Dixon.
Photographed by DeWayne Rogers, the happily engaged couple cover the latest issue of Rolling Out magazine where Scrappy opens up about putting a ring on Erica, while Erica expresses why she accepted the rapper’s proposal.
Scrappy on what hurt him during season one: “They kept saying I was a bad father. That was the one thing that kept getting to me. It was messed up because they heard Erica say one thing, and then they took it and ran with it. I have always been there for Erica and Emani, so it kind of got to me when they would say that.”
On popping the question to Erica: “It was time for me to do something really grown,” he shared. “So I popped the question and the beautiful lady said yes … that’s why she has the ring on her finger. But now we’re just waiting for the next big step. I wasn’t trying to play around with it for a hundred years. I wanted to do something really big.“
Erica on life: “I’m in a very good place in my life right now. I learned so much about myself through this process with the show, and now I’m just looking forward to this next chapter in my life.”
