Monica Is PISSED That Lil' Kim Was Cut From Her New Single!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersLil' KimTwitter

monica is pissed that lil kim was cut from her single

We're sure Lil' Kim appreciates the support!

This week, Monica's new single Anything (To Find You) debuted on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at #71, but Lil' Kim's name was not on the chart, and her sample was not in the track.

According to a rep from Monica's label J Records, Kim was cut from the Notorious B.I.G.-sampled track due to "contractual issues."

Here's what Monica had to say about it on Twitter:

"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 The clearance was revoked & I’m fighting to get it reinstated by the Biggie Estate."

Apparently, it was Biggie's mother Volleta Wallace who didn't clear Kim's sample.

More from Monica:

"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. "

Sounds like Monica probably won't be able to make this happen, but she's DEF doing wonders for her relationship with Lil' Kim!

Here's what Kim had to say about her:

"Monica is one of the realest bitches I’ve met in this game."

What do U think about all of this? Would U like to see Lil' Kim put back into Monica's new track?

Man Arrested Over The Song Kung Fu Fighting

Filed under: AnglophiliaMusic MinuteTacky & TrueBusted!Sad Sad

Carl Douglas "Kung fu Fighting" 1974 by chris591972

What other classic songs are going to cause arrests? If a guy performs Biggie's famous track Hypnotize, will hypnotists cry out because the song misrepresents the realities of hypnosis???

Check out Carl Douglas' Kung Fu Fighting (above) - a song that can get you arrested!

Musician Simon Ledger and his band were recently performing the classic song at a bar on the Isle of Wight off the southern coast of England, when an Asian man flipped out, cursed at Simon, and took a photo of him.

According to police, the man accused Simon of subjecting him to "racial abuse."

When contacted by police, Simon agreed to meet with them, and then they proceeded to ARREST HIM!

Here's what Simon had to say about it:

"I thought it was a joke but they were serious. They seemed pretty amazed but said the law is the law and it was their duty. It's political correctness gone potty."

Sorry, but this is ridiculous. It's a fun, harmless song, and it's ABSURD to think someone could be arrested for performing it!

…But make sure NEVER to perform the Motown classic I Heard it Through the Grapevine! That's VERY offensive to grapevines. Ha!

Do U think Kung Fu Fighting is a racially abusive song?

More Info Coming To The Surface! FBI Releases Biggie's Murder Files

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

fbi releases biggie murder files

Back in January, we learned some new info surrounding the murder of Christopher Wallace (aka Biggie Smalls/Notorious B.I.G.).

Now, even more info has come to the surface, because the FBI has released Biggie's murder files.

Here is some of the info that has come up in Biggie's files:

-FBI agents spent nearly two years looking for Biggie's murderer, and investigating the possibility of police involvement with the crime

-Informants told the FBI that corrupt police officers may have aided Biggie's murderer

-FBI agents conducted surveillance on a San Diego man who was a suspect, they went through his mail and garbage

-One FBI agent frequently consulted with a civil attorney who was taking on a wrongful death suit by Biggie's estate, which was aimed at the city of Los Angeles

Given what we heard back in January, none of this comes as a complete shocker to us…but def inneresting to learn new info about this case.

What do U think about this new info? Surprised by anything here?

B.I.G. Closure

Filed under: Legal Matters


Let's all let out a big sigh of relief because Notorious B.I.G.'s wrongful death suit has been dismissed and we can finally let him rest in peace!

It's been THIRTEEN YEARS since the late rapper was shot dead in Los Angeles at the age of 24. While his murder has never been solved, his mother, Voletta Wallace filed a suit against L.A. city officials and the LAPD in 2002, blaming them for her son's death. She won the case in March, 2006 and was awarded $1.1 million by U.S. District Judge Florence-Marie Cooper, however the ruling was overturned two months later when it it was revealed that the Wallaces had withheld information from the court.

After several hearings, federal court Judge Jacqueline Nguyen dismissed the lawsuit earlier this week, FINALLY ending this long ordeal.

What do U think? Are U glad it's finally over??
