Brooklyn rapper Lil Kim has cleared the air on a recent war of words between her camp and music newcomer Azealia Banks, shooting down accusations of wanting the “212” hitmaker to pen her records.
Talking to New York radio station Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club,” Kim addressed the hype once and for all.
“I never met this girl a day in my life,” she told co-hosts DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee. “I never talked to this chick, she don’t know what I sound like. I don’t know what she sound like on the phone. I think it’s in chicks’ contracts when they come out, you gotta go at Lil’ Kim.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
In early May, Banks hopped on Twitter and accused Kim of sparking a rift.
“Okay so true tea is that Lil Kim got mad that I wrote a verse for her on a record I wanted her on.,” she tweeted Sunday (May 6).
“Everyone knows Lil Kim doesn’t write her own raps and I saw this as a faster more efficient way of getting the track done.”
“She then had her assistant write me some long a** offensive email about how Lil Kim writes her own raps and doesn’t need anyone’s help.”
