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 The clearance was revoked & I’m fighting to get it reinstated by the Biggie Estate."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