Lil Kim Introduces Tiffany Foxx To ‘Hot 97’

Lil Kim took time out of her own come back campaign recently, to help launch the career of aspiring super star Tiffany Foxx.

Indeed, while she won’t be able to do much for her cause on a corporate front, Kim has gone a long way in pushing the Rap beauty to Urban audiences, stopping by at ‘Hot 97’ for an introductory interview with the ever comical, Peter Rosenberg.

Watch below…

With Kim in her corner, here’s hoping Foxx hooks up with the right writers, producers and business managers to take her stock beyond the street sand to the mainstream.

For, as sweet as ‘hood approval’ can be, it does all of nothing for an act really hoping to make an impact in the world – as the plight of many a struggling lyricist can attest to.

Does Foxx have what it takes to be a star? As it stands, no.

However, with a little fine tuning- media training and backing from a team with a reach far beyond the realm of ‘Urban’, it’s safe to say she could become an interesting force in the game. That is, if she’s armed with a camp with experience in turning branding Rap music for the masses.

Unfortunately, thanks to shady remarks made by Kim towards a number of industry power players (Gee Roberson, Lil Wayne, Stephen Hill, Drake) the likelihood of Tiffany landing a secure deal without the threat of being tarred by her mentor’s blacklisted brush is unlikely.

For, while it isn’t all that obvious to her fans, Kim’s decision to take on Nicki Minaj continues to stand as an expensive mistake, especially considering that the ‘powers that be‘ that could have helped to relaunch her career and birth Tiffany’s have vested interests in Brand Minaj.

Are we saying that Tiffany landing a major deal and becoming ‘the next big thing’ is an impossible feat? No.

However, in an industry where power is concentrated to a select few, it won’t be long before Tiffany learns that aligning herself with someone regarded as being against the winning team may hinder her chances of securing the contracts she needs to truly enjoy success outside of her current arena.

Which, in all honesty, is a shame considering Kim’s status as a legend and Tiffany’s undeniable skill.

    I really am curious if this hateful cynical writing that you do is really who you ARE. In which case you are a miserable person 24/7 and my heart goes out to you. Or this is just what you write for work and you turn it off at the end of the day.

    I hope its the latter.

    • KimmyBlancoDeLaFamilia March 5, 2013

      I wanna disagree with you but they’re right. Yall know how political this s*** is, they’re not gonna f*** with Tiff because Kim spoke out against em.

    • PinkPussyBarbie March 5, 2013

      Kiiii, ‘when you went against Nicki you depleted your wealth’. Now you know what she meant when she said that and you scared. You f*** with Nicki you f*** with every person she’s got making her happen and those m************ are in power.
      You think they’re gonna let this new b**** get her foot in the door before they shut it back in her face?

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

        Funky b**** PLEASE!! U 12yo little b****! Kim didnt deplete s*** DEFENDN herself against yo KMART b****! In fact…KMART! that all i havta say. W****!

    • HeartShapeBikiniWax March 5, 2013

      Why are you acting like any lies were told. The first few minutes of the interview were about Sicki and that’s why I can’t even be mad at TGJ today. Kim needs to step up and show why she’s the queen instead of letting that fraudulent b**** dominate every f****** interview she does.

    • NOTORIOUS K.I.M March 5, 2013

      You say it’s cynical but what are YOU doing to help kim come back. I feel like i’m the only one trying to help her but she doesnt even put her music online for my ass to buy so what can I do.

      Im deadass tired of wanting her to win more than she wants to win. I spend years waiting for a new album but she’s more focused on helping this other b**** and not herself. TGJ are kim haters but at least they talking the truth this time.

    • TurntUp4Cici March 5, 2013

      Never thought i’d see the day when I defended this site but they’re nice about all the people they write one except Rihanna and Kim. Other than that they’re nice and support my girls Brandy and Ciara so I can care less about your fave tbh.

    • AzealiaBankabale March 5, 2013

      Remember when she called the BET awards the EBT awards? Dumb s*** like that is what’s gonna cost her.

      • THEPINKPRINT (FAF) March 5, 2013

        Exactly ! @AzealiaBankable I call them that too but for a different reason! If Kim flop ass woulda been there it DEFINETELY woulda been a z-list event! Ki!

  2. TNT March 5, 2013

    Can’t front and i won’t front, TGJ spoke some real horrible but true s*** today. A lot of the cats that used to ride for Kim abandoned her and went to work for Nicki and they’ve been blacklisting her to this day. Kim wants to put out new music and she has it ready but she knows theyre gonna make it hard for her to do well if they put a block on her radio play and s***.

  3. Eye Candy March 5, 2013

    She’s pretty but she will never be Nicki.
    Nicki has the world in the palm of her hands in 3 short years.
    This is some sort of tactic Lil Kim plotted to dethrone Nicki because of the hatred she has for her but it won’t work.
    Which b*tch you know made a million off a mixtape?

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

      B**** icki has U in the palm of her hand! U PRETEEN LITTLE WHORES need the f*** smack outta yall! Little b******. Icki has TOLD yall to kiss her ass and yall stan for her? Kim stupid ass hell for lyn like she did about putn out music…tlTHAT ill give u hoez but icki…KMART!

  4. QueenOfTheNavi March 5, 2013

    I had to read this write up five times to make sure I understood what they were saying and I hate the fact that it’s true. This music business is so corrupt that once one girl comes out on top her people will make it their mission to shut down anyone who has something bad to say about her.

    People are out there thinking YMCMB is the only group behind Nicki when the truth is that she’s got pr companies making sure she stays on top. Krim and this new girl will need a miracle to get past that.

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

      The fact that u called her ‘krim’ nullified ur comment. I was ridin with u till then…B****!!

  5. LA LA March 5, 2013

    What did Nicki Minaj say about all these other Rap H***?…..Oh Yeah “These Other Rap B****** are only HOT! For one Summer” – Nicki.

    True Testament. The only one I felt has something is Azealia Banks but she sorta burned her bridges with the H**/A*** Gay Community with her smart remarks….

    Be Nice! And you’ll make it far…

  6. Kayla March 5, 2013

    Ugh. STAY MAD. I bewilders me how b****** will tag along ANY ride for a spot light. Had Nicki picked baby up, she would say she disliked Kim. Let’s proceed to NOT wasting our time talking about the winner female MC and invest in defeating her, IF, that’s the goal y’all struggling to achieve. Cause if it was unclear, y’all’s lil comments or irrelevant & pathetic as opposed to Nicki Minaj’s success. Just saying.

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

      omg b**** shut up!!

  7. NessaBlanco March 5, 2013

    When I said it was a bad idea for Kim to beef with the clone yall looked at me like i was a p**** but now she wants to come back she can’t. Nicki is a snake and her only motive in life was to copy Kim and then get rid of everything she ever achieved so it made it look like she was the original. The worst thing about it is that she succeeded in it and instead of Kim grinding to get her throne back she threw disses at Baby and Wayne like she didn’t know they could make or break her.

    I’m just done with the whole thing tbh and reading this made me wonder if there’s any point in rooting for her anymore.

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

      no sweetie she knew what she was doing…she just didn’t care anymore because THEY WERE DOING IT ANYWAY!! i wish yall hoez would STOP saying that because she went at them they making sure she caint come back..she went AT THEM BECAUSE THEY WERE BLOCKING HER!!! get it str8 girls

  8. RIHLUV March 5, 2013


    • BeyWhoUWanna March 5, 2013

      You mad for Kim, but I see no lies in what they said. Nicki is powerful and Kim isn’t.

      • THEPINKPRINT (FAF) March 5, 2013

        Yet you stan for R****! LMAOOOO

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

        powerful…KMART chile

  9. MEAddiction March 5, 2013

    I deadass wanted to drag Grape for this but I see where they’re coming from. That’s why Missy stayed peaceful in the game because people can be so malicious and sneaky.
    Nicki STOLE kim’s entire team and then used them to ruin kim’s brand and then turned around and act like her hands were clean. Watch them do some fowl s*** to Tiffany just to spite Kim.

    • THEPINKPRINT (FAF) March 5, 2013

      WRONG! Kim is now working with fendi dont listen to Krim lies! She perjured herself before a grand jury u think she’ll tell the truth to hot 97? Puhlease.

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

        b**** jump off the nearest bridge

    • TJ March 6, 2013

      Nicki didn’t steal Kim’s team & Kim ruined Kim’s brand.

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

        nicki did too steal kim’s swag and you a dumb b**** to think otherwise…u h**. but kim and her team did ruin kim’s brand tho

  10. AzaleanArmy March 5, 2013

    Sometimes i think TGJ are too ‘industry’ for their own good. Yall sitting here calling them haters when you aren’t thinking s*** through.
    The industry isn’t all candy and roses like these tv shows make you wanna believe. It’s political.
    If a record label and the people that work for it are making bank off of one female rapper how do you think they’ll react when someone who dissed her is trying to come back in the game WITHOUT any one to make sure she gets treated right.

    Look at that Rita chick. If she wasn’t signed with Jay her ass would have been dropped a long time ago but because she got big dudes calling the shots for her she gets everything handed to her.

  11. PourItUpRihRih March 5, 2013

    I come on here and yeah I’ll drag Sam and the rest but I can say this, they know what they’re talking about except when it comes to Rihanna. It’s easier to pretend that it’s not true but it takes more than a hot song to make someone blow, it takes people pulling strings behind the scenes like Diddy used to do for Kim back in the day.
    If the people that are supposed to be pulling your strings hate you because your manager dissed them do you really think they’re gonna let you go make it.

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

      if it’s true about kim then it is about Rhi….sit>>>>>>>there

  12. TJ March 5, 2013

    But death at the first 5mins basically being about Nicki.

  13. HeartShapeBikiniWax March 5, 2013

    Nicki would be nowhere without Baby, Slim and Wayne and that’s why Tiff needs to find dudes who can back her all the way too. I seen how they did Kim and wouldn’t play her songs on radio and s***. She should have ignored her and kept it moving.

  14. QueenKimmy March 5, 2013

    Garbaj won. She wanted to be only chick out and she f***** her way into the game to make sure it happened.
    Kim won’t get no play on radio and no love from tv because she made her look like a hater when all she was doing was calling b******* on her copycatting ass. Kim girl please, get it together and show these girls that you will always be the queen.

    • THEPINKPRINT (FAF) March 5, 2013

      She f***** her way into the game what Kim do wit Biggie?

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

        the same thing yo momma did with yo…daddies!!!

  15. WhySpendMine March 5, 2013

    Where’s Truth. We need his say on this cos this got me wondering if Kim can trust Tiff. Like i deadass think she’ll betray her if someone with more money says they can help her make it.

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

      here i am sweetie…i hadn’t really paid this post no attention til i read the FOOLISHNESS here. Yes kim f***** herself by promising music and not delivering but she real tho. it’ll come out as to why and these stooopid STANK P**** icki stans sound like fools when the b**** wrote them off. I get the feeling kim has something up her sleeve..whilst icki just has crabs up her p****

  16. Kate Middleton March 5, 2013

    This is what beyawnce did with Rita whora to take out Rihanna.

  17. nicko March 5, 2013

    I think that lil kim kind of deserves what is happening to her rn. Yes, Nicki dissed her, but that was in her MIXTAPE days, back in 07,08 so she shouldnt have paid so much attention to what Nicki was sayin bout her at that time. Azealia Banks, has dissed Nicki in interviews several times, even on twitter, does Nicki say anything ? NO.Nicki is too busy building an EMPIRE to respond to what ppl say about her.The truth is that lil kim tried to USE Nicki to come back in the game and she FAILED. Its not Nicki’s fault if kim is losing, Nicki did not do anything to kim, Nicki worked hard and focused on her business, thats it. Stop blaming her cause she didnt do s*** to lil kim

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

      your NAME ALONE make me wanna kick yo ass

  18. Tisha March 5, 2013

    Money on the table for if we’ll still be talking about Tiffany in 2014? It’s an easy bet 🙂

    I like Kim but delusion hit her hard at some point years ago, the fact she would even waste her time trying to prop up this basic chick…you don’t even have to like Nicki to see everything from Tiff’s looks to her flow is super tired.

    it’s a waste. She doesn’t have ANYTHING (looks, style, spark, unique flavor) which is why no one was trying to give her a career…but Kim. I can only smh because there’s no realit where this chick will go big and contribute money to Kim’s efforts in trying to boost her.

  19. THEPINKPRINT (FAF) March 5, 2013

    That hair is the FOOL! That’s all I’ma say… I didn’t even watch the interview, I have it saved.. Thanks sam! 🙂 KIIII!

  20. Drew March 5, 2013

    I wish they would stop bringing up Nicki to Lil Kim. Get over it! That’s old…Moving on. I like Tiffany Foxx, she’s cool.

    • DeezNuts March 5, 2013

      What else is there to talk about?

      She has no music out, no business moves, no love life, ; to keep it short..SHES a HASBEEN.

      If MC Hammer called..what is there to talk about? lol Nicki beef is the only thing that is interesting about Lil Krim. lmao

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

        dusty nuts just shut…F*** YOU

    • TJ March 6, 2013

      If Kim were smart she just wouldn’t answer the questions. How often do you see Nicki answering Kim questions? Never.

  21. KimmieForce March 5, 2013

    You throw so much shade. You should have mentioned Lil Kim’s UNDENIABLE STAR POWER in the beginning. Tiffany didn’t get this much buzz being signed to Snoop. You can talk about Lil Kim all you want but anybody who aligns herself with Lil Kim will have a great chance at success.

    • QUEEN MINAJ March 5, 2013

      but yet her own success went down,basement

      • KimmieForce March 6, 2013

        Lil Kim’s success didn’t go down the basement. It’s called Life. When you get older, you’ll see. It’s not the challenges that weakens us but makes us better.

        What other female rapper who spent a year and a day in jail is getting the same buzz as Lil Kim: DaBrat, Foxy, RemyMA, who?

        Even Lil Wayne and T.I. aint the same since jail time. However, Lil Wayne had the force waiting for him and he’s able to keep his financial standards but most people say his music has declined.

        The fact that Lil Kim still lives in the most wealthy zip code in America shows that she’s in no basement. She’s just experiencing life.

        Good luck to you when the wind of life hits your ass.

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 6, 2013

        and icki’s is in…KMART!! (looks at this b**** like ‘i wish you would’)

  22. The Truth March 5, 2013

    Why is Nicki’s name even coming up in this article? It takes a “STAN” to ruin a career for their favorite artist.Keep Nicki out of this. Tiffany must be able to grasp attention if Snoop Dogg signed her and Kim followed up. Both two indisputable icons in music. Regardless of what you 90’s babies and generation X clones say. Don’t even know real from fake.

  23. QUEEN MINAJ March 5, 2013

    oh so shes dropping a documentary?
    guess we will never see it.

    anyways tiffany honey there is a reason why snoop drop you from the label
    your whack.period.
    unless you get lil kim’s writers from her hardcore days you wont be nothing

    • Honey Boo Boo March 6, 2013

      Oh Queen Minge are you really talking about Ghostwriters do we really need to quote your fave’s lyrics hahahahahaha I’m dead. Kim’s lyrics from NK, LBM & TNT all s*** over that dog you stan for she’s trash your trash and this conversation is done. Again have several seats gurl bye!

  29. David March 7, 2013

    I love Tiffany & Kim . I wish them the best & much success m it’s disturbing to see people bitter at someone trying to make it in the world. Everything does not happen over night . It;s called work & I pray half of you have work or jobs to get to. These people who you all are hating on are on tv rich & well to do. Also Lil’Kim set a standard in female rap whether you like her or not you can’t deny her. Every female rapper copied Kims gimmick period. That says alot
