One, two, three! Ding, ding, ding! We have a new winner. Standing at... OK, so maybe a physical confrontation with boxing gloves at a packed, sold-out Madison Square Garden is not the best idea for patching up the issues between Lil Kim and the late Notorious B.I.G.'s mother, Voletta Wallace, but it could be a great starting point.

All right, seriously, let's take a minute and back up. So while we were all caught up in the Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim "Respect" battle, it turns out the Queen Bee has had her biggest foe on the low, right beneath our eyes. I mean, we all knew there may have been a little bit of tension but to the point where Ms. Wallace has now forced Monica to removed Kim's contribution to "Anything (To Find You" record? Ridiculous. It seems like just 12-16 months, artists were constantly being asked if they felt Rick Ross was jacking B.I.G.'s legacy and swag.
Regardless of her personal or business reasoning behind having Notorious K.I.M.'s verse removed, there are five artists who should come between these two so they can finally kiss and make-up.
How could Ms. Wallace turn her nose down at Jay-Z if he is vouching for Kim. Let's remember Jay did appear on Kim's 1996 Hardcore debut and was one of Biggie's closest pals. Do not sleep on the power Hov has brought to the table. Just ask Nasty Nas.
Diddy has seen it all and done it all. Not only down with Kimberly Jones, but he is simply responsible for believing in Biggie, resulting in his rise to fame. Not only has Diddy been cool with both parties, but he has helped patch things up with The LOX, Black Rob and even Mase over these past few years. Just do not go looking to see how Shyne feels about him though.
3. Faith Evans
Now if there was ever a woman in the mix who could bring peace to a hasty situation, who better than Faith Evans. Of course we know her for being B.I.G.'s ex-wife but if memory serves me correct, she was never on truly great terms with either Kim or Ms. Wallace. What better neutrality could you have?
