Lil Kim Removed From Monica's Single By The Notorious B.I.G.'s Mother

 


Voletta Wallace Takes Lil Kim Off Monica’s New Single

 

While Lil Kim fans were excited to hear the Queen Bee on a new track with Monica, their joy may have been short lived now that Kim’s been removed from the single.

As previously reported Monica debuted her track “Anything (To Find You)” that samples The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Who Shot Ya” and includes a verse from both Kim and Rick Ross.
Now according to Monica Lil Kim’s been taken off the track by Biggie Smalls’ mother Voletta Wallace.

Wallace, who controls the late rapper’s estate, has reportedly blocked clearance for Kim to appear on the track to the dismay of not only Monica but the track’s producer—Missy Elliot.

Obviously frustrated about the situation, Monica took to Twitter to say,

“I am just finding out what has happened to my single and myself & Missy are beyond hurt that @LilKim was removed.

She’s our friend, a legend & @LilKim will get the respect she deserves at all cost. The clearance was revoked & I’m fighting to get it reinstated by the Biggie Estate.

We respect all parties involved & were gonna do WHATEVER to keep the song as is because @lilKim the bizness on the record.

 I am as thorough as they come and I LOVE @LilKim bottom line is Ms Wallace has the final say and she said No. If we put it out we get SUED.

Your directing your anger in the wrong place & I am far 2deep in the game 2play games. These r facts. Still fighting 4 Kim to be on it.”

Since then Kim’s also taken to Twitter to speak on the situation and said,

I want y’all to know @missyelliott & @monicabrown have been going HARD As A MOTHAFawkA 4 this situation. I love them so much!!! My babies! They can’t stop us #teamlilkim here we come!!!!!!! #LooksLikeMoney.”

    I respect Ms.Wallace as the mother of a legend,but I feel she is letting her personal feelings interfere with business & that is not only stubborn but selfish to the fans as well & should really be re thought.

      Even Though I Don’t Care For Her I Don’t Think Her 20sec Should Have Been Removed. But Whateva. I Like The Song.

  • Jennie

    I don’t think Ms. Wallace should block, but THOROUGH would have been getting the clearance prior to releasing Kim’s verse on the track.

    MY VIEW IS THIS. I LISTENED TO THE SONG. I REALLY LIKE MONICA AND I THINK SHE HAS A BEAUTIFUL VOICE AND CAN SING A LOT BETTER THAN A LOT OF CHICKS IN THE GAME,,,,………. BUT C’MON. YOU CANT TAKE ONE OF THE BEST HIP HOP BEATS OF ALL TIME AND SING A R&B SONG OVER IT. THE “WHO SHOT YA” BEAT IS GREAT FOR FREESTYLES BUT NOT SINGING. KIND OF REMINDS ME WHEN MARY J DID “LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT” AND TOOK THE TRIBE CALLED QUEST BEAT.

    You have to first ask, what did Lil Kim do to anger the Queen Mother? That’s the first element of protocol, and the basis of discipline. The queen controls the estate of her clan, which in this case was created by her one and only deceased son. No one should play games with that principle, whether we like the decision or not. That’s how a group of people move forward, as opposed to this idea in this generation of I move forward, and later for the group. Hopefully, the rift between the outside subject (Lil Kim) and the Queen can be healed but until that time, be it a poor decision or not, the Queen has spoken in regard to her clan, her blood family. And let no one defile that principle.
