The Notorious B.I.G.’s Mother Allegedly Shuts Down Lil’ Kim Song

It seems like the beef between The Notorious B.I.G.’s mother, Voletta Wallace, and his former lover, rapper Lil’ Kim, is far from over.

According to a series of tweets from Monica, Ms. Wallace who controls Big’s estate, including his recordings has allegedly denied clearance to the R&B singer’s track, titled “Anything (To Find You),” because of its use of a sample of Biggie’s “Who Shot Ya.” Monica’s Missy Elliott produced cut features Rick Ross and Lil’ Kim, who Ms. Wallace has a history of problems with.

Monica, Kim and Missy have all taken to their Twitter to express their thoughts on the matter. “I am just finding out what has happened to my single and myself & Missy are beyond hurt that @LilKim was removed,” Monica wrote. “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 The clearance was revoked & I’m fighting to get it reinstated by the Biggie Estate.”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,” Monica continued. “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 (sic).”

Missy was less hostile and more positive in her post, writing, “@LilKim u are my sister!! I know all u been thru! U been there 4 me and I to will be there 4 u! We will make another EPIC HIt! Know dat (sic)!”

Lil Kim gave Missy and Monica props via her tweets for backing her up. “I want y’all to know @missyelliott & @monicabrown have been going HARD As A MOTHAFUCKA 4 this situation,” she tweeted. “I love them so much!!! My babies! Right now me, @missyelliott, @monicabrown are planning something even BIGGER for you guys!!! =) (sic).”

The trio even got advice from the legendary singer Anita Baker, who attempted to calm them down by sympathizing. “We make creative/biz decisions 24/7… s’one comes behind us n changes t plan w/o notifying us… ur not alone! ab (sic),” she wrote.

Calls to Lil’ Kim and Ms. Wallace for comment have not been returned to XXL as of press time.

The beef between Kim and Wallace goes as far back as a decade ago, when Kimmy Blanco became the mistress of Ms. Wallace’s son, Biggie, who was then married to R&B singer Faith Evans. In 2009, the dispute became public again when Kim expressed her displeasure with her portrayal in the Wallace-backed Biggie biopic, Notorious.

“I feel like I was not portrayed how I should have been in this movie,” she said on Facebook around the release date of the movie. “I was in love with BIG and he was in love with me. I was never a JUMP-OFF, I know this and BIG knew this,” she continued before going into a rant about how “talentless and tasteless” actress Naturi Naughton, who played her in the film, was.

Not one to stay mum, Ms. Wallace responding via an interview with Hip-Hop Weekly, saying, “She felt the character we chose for her was too dark. Do you know why the character was too dark for her? Because she’s a white woman trapped in a black woman’s body, and you can tell the world I said it, because those are Lil Kim’s words. She should be ashamed of herself.”—Mariel Concepcion

    If Big were alive, Kim should know it would be different. And M. Wallace knows this as well bc she did not make decisions for Big when he was alive, otherwise, Kim would have been excluded from many of his projects. This is why artists don’t like for their “momz” to run sh-t bc the let emotions and personal issue get in the way of business. To M. Wallace, no disrespect, but you’re obviously not a business woman. Having little Kim on the track would have brought more sells bc it brings her fans on board along with Missy’s fans, Monica fans and Rick Ross’ fans. In short, as Big would say, that’s “Mo Money.” You can’t mix emotions and personal resentments with biz. Period. You are throwing stones at Lil Kim when, as a mother, you obviously was not perfect, if you were… why was your son out in the street selling drug from jump? No one judged your son, Big, for what he did to make money before he blew up (selling dope poison to the weak). The people overlooked is flaws and mistakes and allowed him to gain success. So why are you playing GOD with Lil’ Kim? Allow her what Big would have allowed her. The history shows he valued her friendship and skills. That’s why he put her on, not bc of what they did in the bedroom alone, for Big could have gotten any woman for that. Think about your hypocrisy, M. Wallace. I know for a fact Big has said some wild things in his lyrics. In view of this, so what Kim said she was a “white girl trapped in a black girl’s body” … who cares. Rappers and entertainers say all type things. That’s the nature of the biz. M. Wallace if you truly understood this biz, you would let it go before you make yourself that “mother” everyone loves to hate. Based on how controlling you are acting, it may be easier for some of us to understand why Big took the route he did. You didn’t choose Big’s friends… he did.

So stop trying to play “Mom” now… in the after death when you didn’t play “mom” when he was alive at all times. Lil Kim’s presence on some of his tracks helped make Big’s success as well. If Big did not deny he and Lil Kim’s business relationship, you are WRONG to deny it.

    MS WALLACE you beyond a hateful ass women!!! For one the shit aint got nothing really to do with Big, never heard his voice, on the track you funkn over a beat that his ass sample from somebody else, the track wasnt shit but some mixtape shit, wasnt a no.1 hit or none of that. Just some fuck around track at best. On top of that every album Kim put out done put money in this niggas kids mouth by giving him exec producer credit, hell Faith aint even did that shit for her own kids, Puff aint did the shit but once, so he could use your sons death as a sympahty point to sell records, once he got on off Bigs name he aint did shit but use up your sons legacy BUT YOU OK WITH THAT SHIT? I dont know what you seen when you were riding thru BKLYN the day of the funeral, but you putting too much on your sons music, he was & never will be the best at this rap game. SORRY NY that just the plain truth, Big was NOT THE GREATEST RAPPER EVER, SORRY. You will be remember as a very hateful lady!!!!

    I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
