Last week, during a Drnkchampspodcast interview, Jermaine Dupri told listeners that Biggie tried to MURDER Lil Kim. Here's what he said:
“That studio session was the song called ‘Just Like Me’ with Usher,” he said. “So what he did was he wrote a verse for Lil Kim. And Lil Kim at this particular point and time — this was the time B.I.G., I’m thinking he f–ked Kim’s sister and she found out about it. This was in the music. She was upset when she came to the studio, about this, and he couldn’t really get her to do the rap. And me and Usher were there, young, watching what’s going on, and B.I.G. pulled a strap out on her.”
After sharing that first part of the story, the hosts were curious as to the reason he might have done that, with DJ EFN asking, “Was she wildin’ out though?'” as though that would have warranted a man who was triple her size resorting to pulling a weapon on her. Dupri made it clear that it was done to make a point.
“To just let her know he was going to kill her,” he said.
Here's what Lil Kim said to Ebro In The Morning:
“Ain’t nothing wrong with him telling the story, it’s a part of history. Of course I remember that day. That’s not the first time he’s told that story. He told that story on VH1 Driven. And you know…it happened. The story is not exactly how he said but it’s very close to the truth. And you know, we did have a very violent relationship. I hate that for a while that was like all I attracted was violent — yeah. It is what it is. He was everything.
You know how it is when you’re in the industry and the guys can do whatever they want and you can’t do sh-t. You can’t do nothing. First of all, when I was going to do the song with Jermaine, they contacted [Lance ‘Un’ Rivera]. Biggie wasn’t even involved in that. He put himself there. He came because he just wanted to make sure I wasn’t going to have any eyes for Usher or Jermaine [laughs]. So he put himself there…
But when we were together, it always turned into a lover’s quarrel or a lover’s nest. Although I wanted him to be there to make sure my sh-t was tight, my music, everything got to be tight, but a lot of times, it wasn’t the best thing. And that day was one of the days where it probably wasn’t the best thing. Ain’t nobody tell him to bring his behind there neither [laughs]. But when he got there and all of this stuff came out, that is a true story.
He did try to sleep with — there was a girl, she was actually on my Countdown to Lockdown show and she’s like my family. That story is all true. C’mon. And he said something to the effect of, “Here’s the thing. She asked me for $400. I told her, what she going to do for that $400?” I’m like, so that was ok? I think though, he was trying to expose the fact that he didn’t think she was my real friend even as a family member.
A lot of us are not proud of certain parts of our past and the way we might have handled things. A lot of us aren’t proud of how we may have handled a certain situation back in the day or how we used to be. Now I’m going to tell you, BIG was a Gemini. All I know is Geminis. I’ve learned how to really deal with Geminis, and Geminis really are two people.
