Last week, Baller Alert correspondent Mr. Anthony Black sat down with Miami’s Tip Drill to talk about her recent success and appearance on the new installment of the “Love & Hip-Hop” franchise. Tip discussed her career as a stripper, falling from a 35-foot pole and how she managed to catapult her name to legendary status in the 305.
During the sit down, Tip spoke on her friendship, or lack thereof, with Joseline Hernandez. She revealed that the two were friends from way back, with a special bond that would allow Tip to escape to her house when things got tough at home.
The two were very close, from stealing together to getting locked up together; they were ultimately two peas in a pod. However, when the two got split up, with Tip going to a juvenile prison and a 16-year-old Joseline linking up with a pimp who introduced her to the strip club, their relationship became a little rocky.
“When I got out, as I got into the strip club game, we ended up crossing paths. So, now she’s called Shenellica. I didn’t really know her as Shenellica, I knew her as Joseline,” she said. “She had her name and I was coming up. She was hanging out with all the older girls that had a name, Platinum Queen, Pinky, all the girls that had a name, and she was younger then them but she was in the poppin’ group.”
Tip revealed that when she came around to work the pole, there was always a little underlying tensions about who was making the most money between her and them.
“Now, I seen her. She starts doing the show or whatever, and I see her at King of Diamonds and I got to say hi – like this my friend, I know you, I know you from the strip club, I haven’t seen her in years and we grew up together. So I go to say hi, I’m like, ‘Hey, What’s up.” The first thing she says to me is, ‘You still dancing?’” Tip said, as she laughed.
“So, that was like – to me – like okay, you would still be dancing if you didn’t go up here messing with Stevie J and who ever his, I forgot his girlfriend’s name, but you wasn’t their little girlfriend or whatever. You would be right here with me, but even still as a woman you supposed to say ‘Hey girl, we friends.”
As the interview continued, Tip discussed another run in with Joseline, when the reality star was hosting at G5. Although Tip works at G5, she was supposed to be heading out to LIV that night. But, instead she headed to G5 to show some love to Joseline.
“Nobody knew she was there, the DJ is not shouting her out or anything. I guess she goes and tells them to play her song, she gets 2,000 ones and she goes on stage and she throws it, okay cool,” she said, adding that she was in her own section with a few men that had a pretty penny. “So, she comes by our section and she’s calling me, but I’m like ‘I’m not sure if I want to go over here,’ so I’m kinda like ignoring her a little bit. So the DJ is like, ‘Tip, Joseline wants you.’ She’s standing right outside our section, typical Joseline fashion, the first thing she says to me is ‘You look like you doing bad, you need to do better.’ That is the first thing she says to me.”
Although everyone said they would have put hands on Joseline for that comment, Tip says she had security, if the two fought her security would have roughed her up.
As the interview came to an end, Tip addressed Joseline, saying, “What is the problem, I don’t understand what’s going on like. We grew up together. I don’t understand, we cool. I show nothing but love to her, I don’t understand where all this shade every time. I don’t get it.
