Wrapped up in label speculations, a feud with Nicki Minaj and Diddy, Lil Kim has been at the center of it all. Now, the former first lady of the Junior M.A.F.I.A. is speaking on her new label deal, one thought to be with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, and her quarrels with Young Money’s Minaj. In an interview with The Chicago Tribune, Kim also shed light on her new album, saying she isn’t focusing on it.
“I’m not really focusing on a new album,” she told the Tribune this Saturday. “I’m focusing more on singles. I’m dropping a single in July. I’m going to keep dropping singles until I think fans are ready for an album.”
As for those Roc Nation rumors, she wouldn’t confirm the reports.
“There are a lot of offers on the table right now. It’s not a done deal,” she noted.
When talk turned to her new album, Kim said she’s not in it for attention.
“I never like that (attention),” Kim noted, saying she had waved a white flag when she worked on a song with Minaj and Baby. “Here’s the thing. I did a record with them, and we were supposed to do a video. They didn’t want her to stand next to me, so they pulled the record back. And you know, basically they pinned it on me…They didn’t want to do it. My thing was, I waved the white flag. I wanted to do the song.”
