[source: prlog.org]“I have no seeds for these birds,” said a smiling Lil Kim as she left a Harlem sound studio where she was perfecting the last part of her upcoming show. Her response was to a photographer who asked about the Twitter beef with Harlem Act Azealia Banks.
Banks, a new comer, accused Lil Kim of snubbing her on a collaboration and for not writing her own lyrics. Lil Kim released a statement through her publicist denying ever meeting Banks but still said she is grateful for Banks being a fan.
Lil Kim herself has been on the topic of discussion since rival Nicki Minaj’s career took off with her 2011 release Pink Friday. Since then Lil Kim has been working hard on her untitled album with hip hop heavy weights like Common and Rick Ross whom she previously worked with on R&B singer Monica’s single from her 2012 release. Rappers Tyler the Creator, Wale, and a possible collaboration with Lauryn Hill who also is looking for a 2012 release to her long awaited EP. Hill and Lil Kim were supposed to release a remix of Lil Kim’s 2005 single “Lighters Up” but plans fell through.
The project is expected to be released this Fall through her new label Universal Music Group but before that the Grammy Award winner has embarked on her Return of the Queen Tour that set to begin in 15 days.
