She was questioned about the state of her music career, she talked about the entire Notorious movie and all of it's drama. She answered questions about her love life and of course dished about her feud with fights with Faith Evans, Nicki Minaj & Azealia Banks. Check it all out below.
On how her beef with Nicki Minaj started
Me and Slim were friends for four years and we decided that we were going to go into business together and I was over there at Cash Money. I was getting ready to be partners with them. While I was over there, we were working a lot. Baby said to me ‘Hey I want you to be on my album or whatever’ and he sent the song over, it was empty, and it just had a hook on it, and so I sent it back to him, quick. [...] [So] they put the record out and I guess they didn’t like the response and so when they saw the response they just pulled the record off, pulled it back, never put it on his album, nothing. Then it’s like I’m not even hearing from them and it’s like wow, you know what I mean? If you listen to that song, the way I did my vocals, [Nicki's] were different from how I did my vocals at that time.
Shortly after that she started releasing all these records doing her vocals they way I did my vocals. Now okay, whatever, you know what I mean. You have to look back, my fans may not like when I do certain types of music but that was the sound that I was getting ready to start and I was starting the sound. A long time ago, I played a record for Slim called ‘Automatic’ it’s a St. Tropez, dance type of record, it was 3 years ago that I played him that record. On her new album she has a song called Automatic and the song is so similar to the song that I played for Slim, the whole sound that I brought to the table. When Slim was like ‘What are you working on? Let me hear where you’re going with It,’ she was still doing whatever she was doing when she first came out, when she was rapping, I brought a whole new sound. Next thing you know, 2 to 3 years later now that she is moving in the game and whatever, this is the whole new sound, whether my fans would have liked that sound or not, it was my sound I brought that to the table.
On if she had an issue with Nicki beforehand
The problem with her is she was very catty with it. I never had a problem with her, I was always nice with her, always she was a very obnoxious person but I was always nice with her. From the moment that I met her, I was always cool with her but after that it always seemed like once they realized that we need Kim, we wanna study her swag, that’s what it kind of felt like because I was around for a long time. I think that they wanted to get that record just to stamp that I was okay with what was going on. For me it was a break back into rotation, if that would have been a big video and a big event record it would have been good for both of us but I personally think that they didn’t want me to stand beside her, which is stupid.
On Why Male Rappers can talk cocky on records but it doesn’t lead to beefing like females
They’re not like her. She wanted to be the only female out there so when Baby and Slim said when not f*cking with this chick because you can’t stand next to her she loved it because she didn’t want to stand next to me. She wanted to be out there by herself.
When I was out we had me, we have Eve, Foxy and you want to know why? Because we all understood the essence of music and how it was suppose to go. They knew what it was. I’m not saying that she is a horrible artist but I definitely feel like she is over rated.
On being dissed by Azealia Banks
Man, I never met this chick a day in my life. I’ve never talked to this chic. She don’t know what I sound like, I don’t know what she sounds like on the phone, but let me tell you, I think it’s in chick’s contract’s when they come out you gotta go at Lil Kim. That is in the contract.
On her relationship with producer Scott Storch
You know what, I love Scott. I would have married him. He’s a good person. Scott spoiled me and he treated me like a queen but the thing is that he thought that he had to do all these big lavish things. We were living in Coconut Grove; I was living with him for a while. He was like, “Kim’s my girl, and we have to move to Miami Beach. We need to move to Star Island.” The house on Miami Beach was huge but the one in Coconut Grove was so homely. We were happy there but as soon as we went to Miami Beach we started arguing, fighting and everything was horrible..
I don’t know what the future holds but I think we’ve both moved in such different directions. Scott wanted to marry me; he gave me a huge pink diamond ring and I’ll never do this again because it killed me to give it back. I’m going to be honest with you; I never took the ring, put it on and wore it. [The jeweler] put it on the table and goes, “pick which one you want”. I kind of knew it was a proposal because when I picked it, he took it off the table and here comes Scott with the ring. I was like, “Yes, but not now!” He was so upset.
On Faith walking in Lil Kim and biggie in the bed
Yes, that’s true.
On Faith dragging her out of the bed
That’s not true. There was only two people there and that was Lil’ Cease and ROC. Those were the only two people there and Cease was sleep but that’s not how it went down. Trust me and believe me.
On Biggie’s Mom Ms. Wallace
Big’s mom doesn’t know Biggie and she barely knows Christopher. She use to kick him out daily. She did not care to know him or get to know him during that time. Don’t get me wrong, he loved his mother and I’m pretty sure as a mom she loved her son, but she didn’t know him.
You’ve always been a beautiful chick; why did you decide to get so much plastic surgery?
Why would you ask me that?
Because we want to know.So where do I begin..First off, I will say that after watching the entire interview, I've just a little more respect towards her, and the word "little" is in italic for a reason. I believe on the last post I did of her, I called her a hater. I take that back. She's definitely not a hater. Not at all, so I do apologize for that. However, she needs to learn how to let go of things. Listening to this entire interview made me feel that she's never learned to forgive or forget. Even though she said she does, she doesn't.
There are so many people who have surgery so I don’t know where that question is coming from but I thank you for the compliment. (NECOLE BITCHIE)
So here's what I've gathered from the interview, one she's unemployeed. She is not signed to a label, she doesn't have any type of management or anything. She's just out there...in limbo. She misses having a team to back her up and having someone promote her name because it's "big". I hated the fact that she dodged questions about what's next for her musically.
I also hated the fact that she actually sat there and compared crimes. She was pretty much bragging about the fact that she had a federal charge versus a state charge. Like it's "cooler" or something. Girl no! It's not cool. Jail for any amount of time for any reason what so ever is not cool. Who cares how serious. It shouldn't have happened any way. I also didn't know that she got around in the industry.
Biggie Smalls, Mano, Ray- J, Scott Storch...who knew she slept with all these folks. Why does she air out other folks dirty lundry? She just told all his buusiness about him having wrong people behind him. But i dont even remember the two of them dating. He treated her like a queen.
I've never read the Faith Evans book but Angela quoted a few lines from it. The first line was along of the lines of her being caught in bed with Biggie by Faith. Lil Kim said yeah that's true. The second line, was Faith dragged her out the bed by the hair...and she denied it ALL. It's like she is just confirming all of these things that she thinks is cool or will make her seem like she's a bad bad bitch, but it does nothing. She then goes on to say that Faith was the one mainly calling the police after every altercation.
I just can't get over the fact that she thinks and feels that her name is bigger than what it actually is. She sat there and said that the producers of "Notorious" NEEDED her and her name to sensationalize the film (-_-). They what? She said that they didn't say those words but she knows that they needed her. (-_-). I'm like really Kim? They didn't need you. Because they wrote the entire movie without you knowing a thing AND they PAID you so that you could shut the hell up about how you're character was being portrayed.
I cracked up after Charlamagne blasted about her surgery!!! She wasn't expecting that. Now this entire Nicki thing...I listened to what Kim had to say and honestly...it's one of those things like she should just get over it. I mean, it is what it is. She kept saying it's all about respect and that people should do their homework and this and what not. She kept saying that it's deeper than that.
She also said that Nicki stole her sound. She said that she came up with a song called "Automatic" which is striking similar to the song on Nicki's new album and she said that she was supposed to have that sound and not Nicki. Boo-hoo...get over it. Sounds are stolen all the time. Look at Jessie J and Katy Perry. For the longest I thought they we're the same people.
But I guess, it is what it is. They've both have been dissing one another through videos and songs and albums and everything. They each have their own stories as to what and why. I'm over it. And according to Kim, it will never be squashed, which brings me back to her needing to live what she preaches...forgive and forget.
