*While Monica was wrapping up a track featuring Rick Ross and Lil’ Kim, she went to Voletta Wallace, the mother of the late Notorious B.I.G., to get approval of the sampling of her son’s “Who Shot Ya.”
All was going well until Mrs. Wallace heard Kim on the song and refused to move forward with it unless the Queen Bee was taken off.
Monica’s “Anything (To Find Love)” was produced by Missy Elliot, who was a bit hurt and thrown off by the whole bit. But after some fighting and bit of pushing, the only version that can be made public is the one missing Lil Kim.
“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 The clearance was revoked & I’m fighting to get it reinstated by the Biggie Estate,” the R&B singer wrote via Twitter.
She then again went back to the social media site to stress her love for Kim, explaining that she has to respect Mama Wallace, otherwise she’ll take em to court.
