Talented music producer, Stevie Jordan opened up about how he confronted K-Ci, Devante's cousin who ill-treated Missy Elliot.


The award-winning producer Stevie J. shared some information in relations to his experience when working with fellow singer/producer, Devante Swing and the artistes on his record label (Ginuwine, Missy Elliot, Timbaland, and Tweet.)

These artistes were otherwise known as the Swing Mob artistes. During a 2017 interview with Drink Champs, Stevie detailed the occurrence stating it happened in the '90s.

The incident which led to the end of Stevie J.'s relationship with the producer had to deal with Swings mistreating his artistes in a Rochester, New York Studio. In the course of a studio session, Devante strutted in with his bodyguards, and his cousin, K-Ci and guess what?

The pack came in to unleash terror on the artistes. The African American music guru explained that he couldn't believe what happened as Devante Swing smacked the singers hard either on their face or back. Even more strange, his cousin K-Ci did the same.

No one was spared this humiliation, as even the iconic rapper; Missy Elliot got hit on the face. The last straw that broke the camel's back was when K-Ci disrespectfully turned to deliver a hit on the producer.


Stevie expressed how shocked he was, and that he warned him sternly not to try that with him, the warning came as a threat and the music expert sure meant how words. According to him:

"You better not put your hands on me potna."

Unfortunately, this initiated a fight, and the two exchanged blows until Devante's bodyguards joined in. At this point, the curtains were drawn, as Stevie said he got defeated after someone struck his head with a bottle.


This one time combat which ended the relationship between the duo left a long-lasting scar on Stevie's head which he showed the interviewer. Stevie, however, charged the artistes to leave the label for such inhumane treatment.

His words must have had some impact, as the artistes dissolved the group and went solo. This may be a long time ago, but Stevie has shown how confrontational he can be.

Reportedly, last year, he was forced to leave "Love and Hip Hop, Atlanta" season 7, after he got involved in a disagreement verbally with Erica Mena.


The eviction on the show did not last because in December an Instagram fan page revealed his return to the show's season 8. On social media, his fans were thrilled to have him back.

This was one of the best news for Stevie to wrap up 2018. Good news came in November when his wife, Faith Evans won the "Lady of Soul Awards," for her music expertise.

His experience in the entertainment industry has earned him the recognition he needs and Comedian, Nick Cannon, once invited the producer to his "Wild n Out" comedy show.


Rumors had it that the two got involved in some form of altercation as a result of Stevie's utterance concerning the show host's former wife, Mariah Carey.

However, it seemed the two men were having fun. They joked about their time together on the show and flaunted how cordial their relationship is, on their social media handles. Stevie Jordan's career and personal life seem to be what he wants it to be at the moment.

The music producer has shown how he calls the shots regardless of the consequences!
