Just a week ago on this very day, Monica released her new single to the masses “Anything (To Find You)”. The Missy Elliott-produced song which features Rick Ross and Lil’ Kim samples the late Notorious B.I.G.’s “Who Shot Ya?”. But things have changed in the past 24 hours for the collaboration which debuted this week at #71 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Lil’ Kim has been removed from the song since Biggie’s mother, Volleta Wallace will not clear the sample if the Queen Bee remains on the song. Ms. Wallace of course controls the estate of B.I.G. and considering the recent volatile past between Lil’ Kim and Biggie’s mother this shouldn’t come as any shock. Both Monica and Missy Elliott hit Twitter earlier to explain the situation and show support for Kim.

I am just finding out what has happened to my single and myself & Missy are beyond hurt that @LilKim was removed. She’s our friend, a legend & @LilKim will get the respect she deserves at all cost. The clearance was revoked & I’m fighting to get it reinstated by the Biggie Estate. We respect all parties involved & were gonna do WHATEVER to keep the song as is because @lilKim the bizness on the record…I am as thorough as they come and I LOVE @LilKim bottom line is Ms Wallace has the final say and she said No. If we put it out we get SUED, your directing your anger in the wrong place & I am far 2deep in the game 2play games. These r facts. Still fighting 4 Kim to be on it…..
