In a recent interview with Rap-Up, Lil Kim spoke about her alleged deal with Roc Nation that fell through the cracks. Apparently she is currently shopping for deals and taking offers with the illustrious WorldStar Agency. Mediafire Records and Piggly Wiggly Entertainment denied involvement in Kimberly’s recording future.
You can catch Kim’s explanation below.
There were reports that you were signing with Roc Nation…
I did get offers from representatives from Roc Nation and I did get phone calls from representatives from Roc Nation. A couple representatives from Def Jam had also reached out to me. I think they’re both amazing companies and I think it would’ve been brilliant for me and Jay to collaborate and team up together. However it just didn’t pan out like that. Not to say that something with me and Jay can’t happen in the future, but I doubt if Jay-Z or Roc Nation will be a part of my upcoming album. He and I are really good friends. We both were excited about the idea of us collaborating and maybe me signing with Roc Nation. I think Jay-Z is letting me be Kim at this moment. I think he feels that I deserve to be Kim and also to have everything that… It’s hard for record companies to sign females these days and give them exactly what they want and need. I understand that. It’s a different world out there.
