Monica Brown

If R&B singer Monica Brown looks a little tight in her recent Instagram photo shoots, it's because she is the latest victim of felonious criminal activity around recording studios in Atlanta.

According to a source familiar with the situation, Mo's car was broken into while she was inside a recording studio working on new music. I can't name the recording studio for safety reasons.

Monica has a fleet of cars -- all top of the line, including a Bentley and Mercedes Benz.

The good news is the Instagram model was inside the studio recording music, so her loyal fans can expect a new album this year or next year.

Atlanta's premiere recording studios are magnets for petty criminals. The studios have increased security in the midst of a crime spree that doesn't seem to be letting up.

Several rappers have lost their lives during shootouts at recording studios over the years. And just about every artist has had their cars broken into in the studio parking lots.

Monica and her children will star in a new reality TV show, T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, which debuts on VH1 next week.

Watch the video below of Monica discussing who she would call (on the cast) to discuss gossip. Also watch a video of Mo teaching her oldest son Rocko, 13, how to drive like a big boy. Rocko is the son of music producer Rodney "Rocko" Hill.


  • Yoni7

    Sorry this happened to you, Monica. I hope they didn't get anything of value.

  • SpillyNillie

    Monica is taking this IG modeling for serious, huh? That wig cute!

  • Renee26

    Dang... People can't have anything these days. I hope it was caught on camera and the thieves are caught soon.

  • Trey

    These "studios" these people go to dont have security or cameras?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I’m passing on all this nonsense. I don seen enuf of toya Wright/carter/whatever

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    It’s like we see the same ppl over and over again all the damn time

  • Keekz

    Atlanta leads the nation in economic disparity. The rash of robberies will only get worse.

  • Phillybruh

    Its money too be made, Jazmine Sullivan pulled in a million bucks last year thanks too the GRAM and Youtube.

  • FukkFolks2018

    If that shit is like that Code Red ass mess she last put out she can keep it. I been over her. I tried and tried. She takes WAY too long in between projects. 3 years PLUS. Im good love. Enjoy And...what label is she currently with? Arista/RCA dropped her.

  • Phillybruh

    Code Red had a few joints on it. Say My Name should have led. But Mo always sung to the hoodbooga in us

  • FukkFolks2018

    My issue with that album is it was stuck on that lead song Just Right For Me with Lil Wayne legit for TWO YEARS. They did her dirty as hell before they dropped her with that album promo. Content was okay.

  • Ni Ni

    Why the studio dont have cameras outside?

  • Rere

    Grammy award singer! She is NOT an IG model?

  • sunni_daze

    An IG model..tho. Damn that's cold.

  • Phillybruh

    Mo is always good for a hit or two every couple years but hey they dropped Alicia Keys too.

  • Soda

    Don't leave your keys laying around, Monica. Wake up and find out your boy is joyriding in one of your fancy cars before he gets a license.

  • Vonn

    If the studios have premier artists, they should have premier indoor parking...or someone supervising the parking lot. Especially since this keeps happening.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I think A. Keys still on RCA. Not sure.


    I thought she was a friend of the blog ?


    Funny you say that I’m bumping code red now ??? Deep goes in baby

  • SpillyNillie

    Deets please. I could use a mil....

  • Phillybruh

    Its on GrapeJuice it came across

  • Bossy704

    Happy for the new music. Hopefully we get some bangers as opposed to love and retrospection.

  • sunni_daze

    Clearly not

  • Logan Roberts

    So Monica thought she couldn't be touched? And no car alarm? I hate a no good thief.

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    She said "you better hit the 93" HIT IT HARD lol ?

  • City girl

    Code Red is everything. A lot of bangers on that album.

    Mo wasn't dropped though, (She was with the same label since she was 12) her contract was up, and she decided to go independent instead of signing a 360 deal, which is smart.

  • Trace da Ace

    oh well...nothing to see here folks....

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    True. With the kind of high-end cars that are usuallly in these parking lots, you'd think these studios could spend a few bucks to have an armed guard watching over people's cars.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I'm wondering if this is an inside job. They need to get rid of that security company and hire armed guards only.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I hate a no good thief.
    So true...

  • bemetoo

    she was not drop...brandy was 4 or 5 times

  • Quitedeliteful

    Whuuut??? Ima get some Spanx and then get on IG! LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!

  • bemetoo

    i loooooveeee me some monica but she looks drunk af in this pic

  • Marlika

    Maybe now she’ll stay her ass off social media showing off.

  • T Willis

    That album was trashed. I believe the rumors that she was dropped. I cannot think of the last “hit” Monica had, and, after all, it is called show-BUSINESS.

  • T Willis

    What’s crazy is everyone goes on and on about the economic prosperity for black Americans.

  • imright

    i wont b watching but i am glad monica has somewhere to go now after her daily photo shoots on IG

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    She'll be a'ight! Just like the rest of us! She prolly CAINT wait for C Murder to come home. She gone make it her BUSINESS to be the first one to GIVE him some. She gone TRY her darndest to pull this off (IN HER DAYUM MIND).. But I hope he keeps it pushing and don't get caught up in the drama and petty mess and listen to his big brother Percy. Scandals are a PAPARAZZI dream? and pay day? and he gone need a Payday she tryna stay relevant and ain't gone miss this moment cause she bored and "on get back on Shannon her husband that's causing her pain now.

  • City girl

    That's why you don't believe rumors, because Monica HERSELF made a statement about her contract being up and deciding to go independent.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    That's what's gonna happen...with 6 of his lil friends in the car.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    There are many Blacks in Atlanta that have done well...better than they could have done in some other cities. Yet the poor Blacks are very poor and underexposed.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Never been a Brandy fan

  • Readytochokemothernatureout


  • Bass

    ? Girl you have one hell of an imagination.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I'm putting sparkles in my weave too! C U there!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    It had a few good songs I even went to the promo show she did for the album. But still only one song released commercially. Dropped or not, they did her dirty behind that album. Bc that promo tour, cant speak for all the stops. But the stop in my city was a chitlin circuit venue.

  • MsPam

    Why was the Instagram model at the recording studio?! Didn’t she retire from the music business?! From your truly Brandy Norwood. ???

  • Tiffany Miller

    they like them thugs.... I don't think she got closure from it.

  • City girl

    I agree, because RCA is like that with all the RnB artist. They did the same thing to Alicia Keys and Fantasia for their last albums as well. And this is the prime reason why a lot of artist are going independent.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yuuup! If they are paying that much money I might even invest in a Nicki Minaj pink wig or something!!! LOL!!!

  • Bass

    The thing is Monica had moved on way before Corey was even imprisoned. And was 16 or 17 at the time.

  • Bass

    Girl Monica is booked doing shows left and right. I follow her on Instagram, and she documents her shows on her stories. Besides those Instagram shoots makes her money, just ask Jamazine Sullivan who made a 1 million last yr.

  • Malcom Flex

    Flossing gets your ass got. I don't floss nothing!

  • Bass

    But girl, isn't the point of having Instagram is to document your life and share. As an artist, fans love when they're favorite entertainers display what they're up to.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Then I'll play Cardi. She's doing this weird thing now with hats on the side of her head.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Hi Monica

  • Quitedeliteful

    Good! We make a good team and we gonna make millions!!!

  • Bass

    ? Girl stop.

  • Elevated Soul

    That thing called karma is no joke....Last week she decided to pounce on Kanye because that man spoke his voice and now her car is parked in the hood and has been broken into....

    You can not have nothing nice around a bunch of hood nigggahs.

  • imright

    oh yea ? thats great. i dont follow her

  • Ro

    Monica is so beautiful

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    That wig looks like a wig ..... cute make up ... all I got for this

  • Browneyes

    lol true shade

  • KLo
  • Renee Bee

    What is wrong with Mo having that child behind the wheel in the city. If she feels she must do this, why not on a dirt country road. But, I know the answer --- Doing it for the Gram.
    When she gets a ticket or he runs into someone else she'll know what's up. # DumbAsHell

  • Bonita

    They better start taking a Lyft to the studio.

  • Guest

    The " Instagram Model" ! Lmao! The shade in these write ups today has me Dwl!

  • Branch Davidian

    I heard they broke in and left some of her wack CD's in the passenger seat...I think her last record went aluminum...

  • Enoughsaid2020

    This happens everyday. Just be glad it was not a car jacking.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    *kickin back on leather sofa with feet on glass table*
    Yeah Zillions!!

  • Quitedeliteful





    What's the black population in Atlanta? ? 2 trillion? Everybody lives there

  • Alicia Montgomery

    Instagram Model????

  • Junkanoo

    Monica can actually sing but never seems to hookup with the right producers. It's a shame artists have to model on instagram and do dumb reality TV shows to stay relevant ,the focus should be on their talent not all this other nonsense.

  • kennedy220

    glad to know jasmine is doing well.i miss her music

  • Juliaquan C Spain

    Much as Monica advertise on social media she best to beef up her security because these people out here is gone nutts...I like Mo & Shannon she definite seems so real.

  • Blue

    They sayin' Brandy did it.

  • Ms.Devereaux

    If I were an artist I would let the studio know if they don’t beef up security and get cameras then I wouldn’t be recording there some of these ppl can have a home studio ain’t no way I’d be going there knowing I could possibly get jacked they need to have a gate with a security guard checking ppl id coming in and out and if you don’t have an appointment or not on the list access denied!!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Right.. Mufuggas streets nuccss looking to get a lump sum huge check as if they sat their azzes in class and earned a degree....GTFOH....I WILL NOT GLAMOURIZE, PATRONIZE NOOOOBODY WHO ARE NOT CONDUCIVE ROLE MODELS! THROW THE WHOLE BUNCH BACK FROM WHENCE THE CAME BEFORE THE FAME.. waisted all that money on frivolous material things instead of being Real WIVES AND HUSBAND'S with morals and values!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Exactly although they not bad women it’s just a low I would never stoop to especially Monica and Latoya. They talented
