Gabz: After fading to obscurity Amil, who once rapped next to Jay-Z, appeared to have popped up on Twitter via the handle (@AMIL_DOE) earlier this week. However, the rapper, who was once signed to Roc-A-Fella Records back in 2000, sat down with VIBE and revealed she is not on Twitter or Facebook. She explained, “Sometimes things like this surprise me because I haven’t been in the spotlight in awhile, but when I come up it always seems to be something negative. That’s something I try my hardest to stay away from. It does bother me a little bit but I let it go after while.”

She also talked about her ex-boss Mr. Carter…and about the rumors she was dropped from the label after constant fights with him. “I haven’t spoken to Jay in years but I really wish I could talk to him because that would just really bring closure to me. But he knows I love him. People think there was bad blood between us, but there never was any bad blood.”

Amil is currently working on an urban fiction novel with an accompanying soundtrack.

Amil on Nicki Minaj:
“I got mad respect and love for Nicki. She’s doing it really big and that’s odd for a female. It’s really hard for a female rapper… out of every female entertainer, they got it the worst. I support her because behind-the-scenes she’s going through a lot. And to be able to handle that— that’s big.”
