With Lil Kim raising eyebrows by publicly announcing her G-Unit affiliation at a concert last weekend, SOHH hit up Mobb Deep's Havoc to find out what advice he would give the Queen Bee.
Having worked with 50 Cent on multiple records and released 2006's gold certified Blood Money album through G-Unit Records, Hav said Kim just needs to keep grinding out her music.
"You know what, I didn't really catch wind of Lil Kim joining G-Unit but now that I'm hearing that for the first time through you, if there's any advice I can give, it's nothing less than for her to keep making that good music that she's always been making," Hav told SOHH. "That's it. And I don't even think she really needs that advice because she's the queen. [Mobb Deep] would love to get with her in the future and do another banging a** record like we did in the past. But like I said, I look at Lil Kim like a sister, you know what I mean? She embraced us, we embraced her. I appreciate her as an artist, for sure." (SOHH)
Over the weekend, Kim came out during newly signed G-Unit Records artist Shawty Lo's Atlanta show and proclaimed her new association.
"I brought the queen, Lil' Kim," said Shawty Lo while introducing the notorious raptress as his surprise guest at Hot 107.9's Birthday Bash 16 in Atlanta on Saturday (June 18). But the bigger surprise was what the Queen Bee said when she took the stage at Philips Arena after performing "It's All About the Benjamins." "If ya'll don't know, this my boy right here. G-Unit South, that's where it's at," proclaimed Kim, revealing that the "Dey Know" rapper is now part of the G-Unit roster and she may be following suit. "And I'm family too, down with the G-Unitcamp. We got surprises for ya'll." (Rap-Up)
In December, Kim discussed her admiration toward the G-Unit leader.
"That's my baby man. Like, 50, I've always been a fan of his, but I'm a big fan all over again. He is 'bout to... he is getting ready... it's gonna be crazy, that's all I got to say. I'm loving his new stuff. The stuff we working on together is gonna be crazy... This time around it's not gonna be just one song. It's gonna be a wholemovie behind it, so I'm excited about this project." (Hot 97)
Last month, Mobb Deep brought out Lil Kim as a surprise guest during a New York City concert.
Just a few minutes ago, the Egotrip collective and Complex put together one of the most anticipated East Coast rap shows of the year. After over 3-years behind bars, Prodigy was reunited with Havoc onstage at the first official Mobb Deep concert since P's release. Mobb, joined by Big Noyd and Alchemist took the stage without missing one step. Surprisingly, the fellas hit the stage around 10:30 pm, which is pretty unheard of at a Mobb Deep show, so things got rocking pretty quick. With a live band behind them, the pride of Queensbridge took fans all throughout their catalog including classics like "Start of Your Ending", "Shook Ones Pt. 2? and to their new school hits, "Burn" and "Getaway." But sh*t definitely went to the next thug-o-sphere when the Queen Bee made a surprise appearance to perform her part on "Quiet Storm (Remix)." (Miss Info TV)
