She is the wife of a hip-hop icon, but Shante Broadus wants you to know that she is much more. Get to know this mother, philanthropist and CEO of Boss Lady Entertainment.
On what inspires her:
My children inspire me. My husband inspires me. My family, sister, mother, aunts, etc. all inspire me. I am inspired to become great because they believe in me and my movement so much.
On her company Boss Lady Entertainment:
I started Boss Lady Entertainment because I wanted to be my own boss in an industry that is so tainted and untrue. I want my company to stand for representing our artists with the utmost integrity, and for it to be known that everything we do is 100%. Under BLE, we have a dance and recording studio, management company, my clothing line CoCoRi, and I just started my foundation I AM S.H.A.N.T.E.
On how she stays grounded in her relationship with her husband, rapper Snoop Dogg:
My husband is one of my best friends. I’ve been in this with him from the jump. I have his back and he has mine, with that we will always be a great team.
On how she juggles her role as a mother, CEO, wife of an icon, and a philanthropist:
I’m a Boss by nature. Whether it’s at home, in the office, it doesn’t matter. God doesn’t put too much on our shoulders that we can’t carry… So until my back breaks, I’ll be putting in more work! (Laughs)
On what advice she would give young women pertaining to the industry, relationships, and motherhood:
* Industry– Be true to yourself and success will come easy.
* Relationship- Become your partner’s best friend. No one can break that bond.
* Motherhood – Talk to your children and listen to what they have to say. Kids are smarter than we give them credit for.
Shante has three children with rapper Snoop Dogg: sons Corde and Cordell and daughter Cori(pictured).
