Posh Spice ends rap career

May 7, 2004 at 1:01 PM

NEW YORK, May 7 (UPI) -- Victoria Beckham's advisors have halted the former Spice Girl's foray into the rap world, ending a hip-hop project and her ties with Roc-A-Wear fashions.

Damon Dash, New York-based hip-hop producer and Roc-A-Wear chief, said the British singer previously known as Posh Spice was no longer working with his company or on a music project he was producing, Hellomagazine.com reported Friday.

"Her management wasn't happy with her affiliation with hip-hop," Dash said. "They nipped it in the bud."

Dash signed Beckham last year to be the face of Roc-A-Wear fashions, a business relationship that expanded to include a rap CD.

With Beckham off the music project, Dash said he has stripped her vocals from the tracks and is looking for a singer to replace Posh.

"I want people to hear the album but it will be with another artist," Dash said. "A lot of work went into it and I don't want to throw it all away."
