He knows his rights
It seems like Masika Kalysha can’t catch a break. Every way she sets her feet she finds beef. She knows no shelter from the constant waves of digs and social media shading. She isn’t even safe with her own drivers.
That’s what we learned from this video of the Love & Hip Hop star and her cast-mate Mister Ray having a spat with their driver. Things got real heated between the driver and the two stars, and he made sure to have his camera rolling the whole time.
The video starts with the driver repeatedly asking Masika to get out. She declined, saying that she was waiting for another car to take her wherever it was she was trying to go.
“I don’t need you to take me anywhere in this piece of sh*t car,” she said. “When my driver arrives I will step out.”
Mister Ray asked why the driver hed his phone out and he let them know that he was recording. Masika told Ray to take the driver’s phone and the driver took him on.
“I’m waiting on my Maybach,” Masika told the driver after turning on her flash to ruin his shot of her.
“You can do that from outside,” he responded.
Masika even tried to bring a third party from outside the car into their altercation. She seemed to be confused about the laws regarding recording people. When she complained that someone was recording her, the driver yelled back “Yeah, in my car!”
The confrontation escalated when Mister Ray and the driver stepped out of the car.
“I can record whatever the f*ck I want to in my car!” he said, before the pair brushed up against each other.
The phone then got jostled, and the driver can be heard saying “Don’t touch me.”
The driver went on to explain that he planned on filling in for the driver who was supposed to pick her up, saying that he took the job partially to be nice. He then reiterated that he needed Masika to get out of his car. When Ray told the driver that he was being disrespectful, the driver came back and said, again, that he can record whatever he wants in his own car.
The driver laid out the story that he was paid to deliver her to and from her house and he balked at the idea of making additional pit-stops.
“I don’t mind taking you,” he said. “But who’s paying for it? The people that called me are not going to pay for that.”
He said his services were not like an Uber. He works for a car service and therefore can’t just extend trips on a whim. This point set Ray off.
“Whatever it is you were booked by her to take her where she’s supposed to go,” he yelled.
“Y’all on TV but I’m not a TV dude,” the driver warned before asking them to get out one more time.
Mister Ray let him know that they’ll find him after this incident. Unfazed, the driver offers him his phone number. The clip cuts out with the driver telling the pair to hit the bricks again.
Check out the whole altercation up top via The Shade Room. What do you think? Should the driver have handled it differently? Should Masika have hopped out of the car? Why would you insist on sitting in a car that the owner doesn’t want you in? What’s the endgame? Will Masika ever get a bit of positive press?
