Monica was not happy at the way the cards fell when Lil Kim was axed off her new track “Anything (To Find You)” featuring the Queen B and Rick Ross produced by Missy Elliot. The track samples Biggie’s 1995 track “Who Shot Ya?”
It seems as though Biggie’s mom, Voletta Wallace, handles Biggie’s estate (which includes recordings) and she has denied Lil Kim’s verse on the song. Monica was disappointed that Kim could not be featured on the song so she took to her Twitter page to express her concerns.
Monica tweets, “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 The clearance was revoked & I’m fighting to get it reinstated by the Biggie Estate.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…..
Monica responds, “Thank u Ms Anita, It’s crazy how other people make moves & your at fault. But I’m a soldier & the truth is the light. I spoke the truth, that’s all I can do. The fans don’t know u can only use someone’s song with that persons permission. Therefor if the person says no u are shut down. I respect Ms Wallace & pray we can get her to change her mind about the song. It’s her say now. @IAMANITABAKER hugging u back. I love you dearly for ALWAYS holding me down. This to shall pass. I Love and respect you Ms.B”
Do you think Ms. Wallace should let Kim be put back on the song??
