Debra Antney is the founder and CEO of Atlanta-based management company "Mizay Entertainment" (home to Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, OJ Da Juiceman, and French Montana[1]). She is also Waka's mother.

Antney managed Waka Flocka's early career. She also has managed, or is currently managing, the careers of Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, OJ Da Juiceman, French Montana, and Lex Luger.

On November 19, 2013, it was revealed Gucci Mane had filed a lawsuit against Waka Flocka Flame, Antney, OJ Da Juiceman, rapper Khia Stone and producer Zaytoven. The lawsuit accuses the parties, of fraud, racketeering, and breach of contract. According to Gucci Mane, Antney took control of his 1017 Brick Squad Records, LLC., without permission, and used it to create three separate offshoot labels. "Gucci is also accusing the parties in the lawsuit of withholding royalties and inflating the cost of label expenditures" and claimed that Antney seized his assets and stole a ring and a necklace.[2] In his lawsuit, Gucci Mane says that Antney took more than the typical 20 percent management fee. Gucci Mane also alleges that Antney's actions led to his having money and tax problems. Antney responded saying, "I'm so speechless. It's so crazy. Waka wasn't even rapping in 2006. Drugs, greed, and women ruined him [Gucci Mane]. That's it. Don't blame that shit on me."[3]
