Monica and Lil Kim recorded the Missy Elliott produced track “Anything (to Find You)” a while back, and hit a roadblock when the song, which featured a Notorious B.I.G. sample, had to be put on hold due to Voletta Wallace (Biggie’s Mom) dislike of Lil Kim.
Well, life goes on, and Mo is apparently choosing her battles wisely in honoring Miss Voletta’s wishes.
No worries though, Mo values her friendships and Lil Kim WILL appear on the album… on a remix to the 90’s hit “Ladies Night” with Missy Elliott, which includes a Rick Ross verse for the fellas.
Monica explains the unfortunate dilemma in a recent interview.
Anything was basically a record where we knew we needed hip-hop flavor all across the board and the first thing I did was reach out to Lil Kim.
She’s just a real straight up person. She knows about the 90’s era and everything that Biggie meant to the music industry.? And… you know we had some different complications, but the great thing is, we were able to formulate friendship and then create a bond that we could do other records.
And when we sat back and we really listened to it, also we figured we wanted the fellas tofeel comfortable to. And with our mix of “Ladies Night” with Me, Missy and Kim, we all figured that Rick (Ross) was the man.
