Faith Evans isn’t against love, but she isn’t worried about it either.
The “Love Like This” singer isn’t loving anyone, but she once welcome love more easily.
She’s a Penn State undergraduate student and has few memories of her father.
Although those memories are faint, her mother, Jan Jackson, keeps her well informed and wallowing in the legend of her father.
“The older I get, I swear I fall in love with his music more and more,” she states. “I’m like, talent out the butt.”
Her favorite Biggie track is ‘Machine Gun Funk.’
Later in the interview, Jackson skirted the question of whether or not Diddy came to her with monetary assistance after B.I.G.’s death and explained what would happen if she were to see Lil’ Kim face-to-face.
*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 The clearance was revoked & I’m fighting to get it reinstated by the Biggie Estate,” the R&B singer wrote via Twitter.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.
*A new development has come to fruition regarding the murder of rapper the Notorious B.I.G. just weeks after a New York man confessed to robbing Tupac Shakur in 1994.
A new man and former member of the Nation of Islam, named Clayton Hill reportedly confessed to being an accessory to the murder, explaining he was handed the gun that was used to kill the rapper.
Hill contacted HipHopDX.com and shared his story.
Billboard reports that an email exchange between the two parties said in mid-May 1997 Western Regional Minister from the Nation of Islam, Tony Muhammad, with the approval of Supreme Captain of the Southern Region, Abdul Sharrieff Muhammad, via Account Executive Brother Melvin Muhammad, ordered Hill to pick up Dawoud Muhammad from the Greyhound Bus Station in downtown Atlanta. Dawoud’s name was kept from Hill till Dawoud introduced himself as such when meeting.
“[Dawoud Muhammad] stated to me that he was on the run for the murder [of The Notorious B.I.G.],” Hill told HipHopDx. “He disclosed that he was the shooter of The Notorious B.I.G. because he [Dawoud] was a former Blood gang member and was paid to do so.”
As it states in his soon-to-be released e-book, “Diary of an Ex-Terroist,” Dawoud handed Hill a wrapped up semi-automatic of which the caliber was unknown. The book also reveals that Dawoud bragged about the murder and getting paid $25,000 for the assassination.
Hill further described the scenario saying he was then instructed by Melvin Muhammad to have the “property” delivered to Emile Muhammad, the personal driver of Minister Louis Farrakhan in Kentucky. The gun was then delivered to its resting place at the NOI headquarters.
“I doubt if Minister Farrakhan knew anything… he would have been insulated from that,” Hill wrote.
Finally, Hill said he disclosed all of the information divulged to the media outlet to Assistant U.S. Attorney Nancy DePodesta and the F.B.I.’s Domestic Terrorism Unit last year.
Hill is currently serving time in prison in downtown Chicago for conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and identity theft.
*West Coast rapper DJ Quik revealed in a recent interview that the LAPD suspected him in the murder of Notorious B.I.G., explaining that his car looked a lot like the one used in the killing.
“Just because I was there at that [VIBE] party [with Biggie before the shooting], they tapped my phones, found out my accountant’s number and went and posted up and waited for me at my accountant’s office to pick me up for questions,” Quik shared with Hip Hop DX.com . “And it was only because I owned a ’95 [Chevy] Impala [SS] that was black-cherry colored like the one that was used supposedly in the shooting, which was probably black, mine was burgundy, but at night they look identical in color.”
He also denied rumors that he and Biggie got into an argument that night, as documented by noted Bay Area journalist, Davey D. Shortly after the rumor circulated, it was Quik who was the prime suspect.
Although this is the first time Quik has spoken openly about the allegations, he did reference them in a few lines of his 1998 song “You’z a Ganxta.” In the song he rapped, “Yeah like that night with Biggie out at Quincy Jones’ spot/Like 400 other people yeah I heard some shots/Broke away with the crowd, nervous obviously/And the mothaf*ckas blamed it on me, what the hell?”
*With the passing of the 14th anniversary of the death of the Notorious B.I.G, yesterday, would you believe that Lil Kim believes the demise of legendary rapper was part of a government agenda.
“I always felt like Biggie and Tupac’s deaths was bigger than how they made it to be,” she told the Power 95.3 (Orlando, FL) radio personality Lady T. “It’s bigger than Suge Knight being involved, I think it’s even over his head. Them two was very powerful guys; they both could’ve ran for mayor just like [Governor] Arnold Schwarzenegger and probably won. I think the government is looking at it like ‘we cannot have these two hood dudes with this much power, runnin’ for mayor or somethin’ like that, and winning,’ ’cause they feel like they would have lost control.
“I think it was way deeper than what people would like to believe it to be, I can’t say if this person was involved or that person was involved, no one knows. But I know it was way deeper than what people believe it to be,” she concluded.
News emerged last month, suggesting two LAPD officers associated with the vastly hated Suge Knight were responsible for the murder. But the details are still murky.
