The bad blood continues between Lil’ Kim and 50 Cent.
Though the rappers paired up for the 2003 smash “Magic Stick,” the relationship between the two quickly disintegrated, and 50 Cent dissed Lil’ Kim in performances.
In a recent interview with The Associated Press — before she entered federal detention center to serve a year-and-a-day sentence for perjury — Lil’ Kim made it clear there would be no duets in the future between the two.
“I can’t front. I don’t have a lot of respect for 50 Cent because his music is hardcore ... violent,” said Lil’ Kim. “And I love his music sometimes, but I feel like in his personal life, his real life, he carries that on, and that’s not a great message, you know what I mean? I think he promotes it.”
When asked about the beef between the two, she said: “How can a man have beef with a woman? Whatever, that’s just not cool,” she said.
“If I was selling six, seven million records, I’m not mad at anyone! How can you still be angry at people, still want to come at people? You’re making money, you’re selling millions of records, you should do something with that leverage,” she added.
Lil’ Kim knows plenty about rap feuds — it’s one of the reasons why she’s incarcerated. The rapper convicted of lying to a grand jury investigating a 2001 shootout involving members of her entourage and a clique loyal to her nemesis, rapper Foxy Brown.
The 30-year-old rapper, whose real name is Kimberly Jones, entered a federal detention center in Philadelphia on Sept. 19. She released her fourth album, “The Naked Truth,” last week.
