Brooklyn rapper Lil Kim has shared her response upon learning that Voletta Wallace,mother of slain rapper Notorious B.I.G., forced R&B singer Monica to remove her verse from their “Anything (To Find You)” collaboration.
Admitting Monica and Missy Elliott are fighting the situation, Kim said her fans could anticipate even bigger things from them.
“I want y’all to know @missyelliott & @monicabrown have been going HARD As A MOTHAF*CKA 4 this situation. I love them so much!!! My babies!,” she tweeted Friday (July 15).
“Right now me, @missyelliott, @monicabrown are planning something even BIGGER for you guys!!! =)”

Last night, Monica broke the news of Ms. Wallace’s involvement on the track.
“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 The clearance was revoked & I’m fighting to get it reinstated by the Biggie Estate,” she tweeted July 14th.
“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” (Monica’s Twitter)
The track features a sample of B.I.G.’s “Who Shot Ya”.
Monica searches for true love on “Anything (To Find You),” the first single from her 7th studio album New Life, tentatively due October 4. The ’90s-inspired record, produced by Missy Elliott, samples the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Who Shot Ya?” Monica takes listeners back to R&B’s glory days with her soulful voice, Rick Ross channels Biggie, and the Queen Bee delivers a short, yet stinging verse.

Monica’s new record officially debuted on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart this week.
One week after hitting the ‘net, Monica’s first single, “Anything (To Find You),” featuring Rick Ross, debuts on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at No. 71. The track from Monica’s upcoming seventh studio album, “New Life” (October 18), charts with Rick Ross as a guest feature, but doesn’t included verses from Lil Kim. (Billboard)
