It appears that Lil Kim‘s career continues to slip and slide faster than hot butter on a greased pole.
For just when things seemed to be looking up for her, news that will be sure to rattle her fans emerged today that may slow down her plans for chart revival.

Last week, Monica‘s latest effort ‘Anything To Find You‘ surfaced which featured a verse from Rapper Rick Ross and a pint sized helping from Lil Kim.
When asked why her verse was so short in a recent interview, she claimed that what fans had heard was only a section out of a 16 bar she had recorded for the song which had been shortened to make room for Ross’ contribution.
Now she has been removed from the entire song.
Addressing the issue on Twitter, Monica explained:
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 The clearance was revoked & I’m fighting to get it reinstated by the Biggie Estate.
Going onto reveal:
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.
It would appear that because aspects of Kim’s contributions feature samples from Mr.Wallace, Ms.Wallace has the right not to give these contributions the clearance to be featured on the song.
Therefore giving Monica and J Records no choice but to remove her verse.
If things continue to work against her favour, it is anybody’s guess how Kim’s future projects will fare when or if they see the light of day.
