In 2004, Tifrere started work on her debut album January Joy.The song was also featured as a bonus track on his fourth studio album Vol. as well Fat Joe's song "Listen Baby", from his 2005 album All or Nothing. The album was supported by two singles, "Blackout" featuring Snoop Dogg and "Back of da Club".In March 2009, Mashonda released a mixtape titled The Renovation Series.Mashonda Tifrere began dating music producer Kasseem Dean, known as Swizz Beatz, in 1998. In December 2006 their son, Kasseem David Dean, Jr. Their first child died as a result of a miscarriage.*Alicia has never publicly spoken about homewrecking Swizz and Mashonda’s marriage, and on the rare occasion when she was asked about it, she name-dropped Oprah and acted like she was too good to discuss it. I found out about Alicia two days before my son turned 1. *Swizz has yet another baby-mama in England named Jahna Sebastian, whom he has yet to pay child support on or even acknowledge their daughter. It’s one of those situations where I totally understand why the ex is still talking about the situation and the new girl, because the new girl is consistently f-cking with the ex’s business. I don’t know why people want to change that rule so much. They had been doing their thing for months before that. This is not just something that only happened to me: This happens to women every day. If I can help the next woman get through and be positive, then I’m going to talk about it. to call her ‘Mommy’: S2S: You said that Alicia wanted your baby to call her “mommy”.

Tifrere's vocals also appeared on Ruff Ryders Entertainment artist Eve's debut studio album Let There Be Eve... She was also featured on the tracks "Gotta Man" and "Love Is Blind", by Eve.“My concern with AK is no longer the fact that she assisted in destroying a family but that she has the audacity to make these selfish comments about love and wanting to be with someone, even after knowing their situation.How is this the same Superwoman that I sang out loud with in my truck? If you are reading this Alicia, let me start by saying, you know what you did.It’s baffling to me that you don’t understand what I might have gone through with this situation.I don’t consider myself a victim anymore, I’ve learned a lot from this!
