During an interview about rapper Rich Homie Quan‘s now-infamous VH1 Hip Hop Honors flub, Cease acknowledged bad blood ultimately cost him a possible chance at honoring Kim.
“I think a bunch of other people from New York could’ve gone up there. I knew I wasn’t going to be a part of it, because me and Kim have a situation that we never fixed. It could’ve been Fabolous, it could’ve been his son CJ [Wallace], it could’ve been anybody else. I felt like [Rich Homie Quan] was put in a bad place. It’s messed up on his behalf because he’s getting the wrong end of the stick. Everyone is sensitive now; with social media, you have to be on your tippy toes because you can become a meme. Yo, I sat here and watched my phone go off.” (Complex)
Back in 2011, Kim revealed she could not envision getting back with Cease and Junior M.A.F.I.A.
“At this point I would say never,” Kim declared. “Only God directs my life so I can’t say if I would ever speak to him in the future. But at this point, no. I have not seen a single change and then I’ve seen a bunch of talk and a bunch of contradictions, so no.” (RapFix)
A year prior, Cease dished on his intent to reunite Kim and M.A.F.I.A.
“We’re working on it,” Cease said in an interview. “That’s something I would definitely want to do. I tried it for a year. Especially for Kim — I reached out for years. Everybody else is kinda in sync: I speak to Roc, Nino, D, [Money] L, everybody else is still kinda connected. The only one I wasn’t connected [with] was Kim.” (MTV)
Junior M.A.F.I.A. is most known for being put together by the late Notorious B.I.G.
Junior Masters at Finding Intelligent Attitudes, or Junior M.A.F.I.A., were able to grab instant notoriety with two hit singles, “Get Money” and “Player’s Anthem,” thanks to their childhood crony and producer, the Notorious B.I.G. (All Music)
