Maybe Thug needs a little reminding of where he came from, opined Luckett: "He has a great mother, he has a great grandmother...women that raised him. His sister... who if it wasn't for her you wouldn't even know who Slim Thug was. Because of how they took care of him... I mean you know, whatever was said, was said. But on my end, Black is Beautiful!" The ex-Destiny's Child member is also grateful to the awesome Black women who raised her.
