In a recent interview, Voletta Wallace aired out her feelings on Lil Kim, who made the shocking allegations that the Notorious B.I.G. abused her and urged her to have an abortion. “All this stuff, black eyes, pulling guns.. that’s a bit much,” Ms. Wallace said. “If my son had pulled a gun on Lil Kim, I wish he would have blown her brains out.”

Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs, Jay-Z, Wyclef Jean, Faith Evans and the remaining members of Run-DMC will appear at the event dubbed The B.I.G. Night Out. The event will mark the six-year anniversary of the shooting death of Biggie. Dr. Dre will host the event.
Dan Aquilante of the New York Post reviewed Lil’ Kim’s new album ‘La Bella Mafia’. He writes, “This album tempers its raunch ‘n’ rap with an assortment of brags, some threats and references to her late friend, lover and mentor Notorious B.I.G. Unlike the thugs, Lil’ Kim never plays with guns and always offers a degree of subtlety that’s intelligent and refreshing.”
Ali G. weighed in on the murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie. On 2pac, he scoffed at the though he was dead: “Well, firstly, you can’t be thick, right? He ain’t dead. I mean, the proof is, if you rearrange the letters of Tupac Shakur, you get U Trap Cak Sh. There’s a spare U, which refers to the CIA, obviously. As if that ain’t enough proof, my man Jezzy F., check this, right? He saw him in Woolworths in Langley Village, buying a mini stepladder. Probably because he’s got some shelves up high where he’s got all the evidence about him being alive.” As for Biggie, “Yeah, he’s dead.” He added, “‘Cause I’ve asked around. No one has seen him for ages. Plus, he’s a big man, so he’s well easy to see, ain’t he? You can’t hide him.”

Vibe magazines website reports that Notorious B.I.G.’s mother Voletta Wallace and widow Faith Evans were guests on Wendy Williams’ show last week. Fueling off on Lil’ Kim, Big Momma’s gripe is that while Kim professes her love for the slain rap star, she always brings up unnecessary and negative things about him. It was revealed on VH1’s Driven that Biggie was abusive towards Kim and pulled a gun out on her. The gossip feature also speaks about the mother’s thoughts about Charlie Baltimore.
Tonya Jameson of The Charlotte Observer reviewed Nick Broomfield’s documentary ‘Biggie & Tupac’ and took back her comments that the film was an important reminder after watching it. Jameson said, “Broomfield’s documentary was a reminder that any numbskull with a video camera and a juicy topic can make a movie… I knew it was going to be terrible from the opening scene when Broomfield pronounced Tupac’s name ‘Tupack.’ Even after the few people he managed to interview pronounced Tupac’s name correctly, Broomfield still refused to say it right. It showed Broomfield knew absolutely nothing about the rapper and didn’t even respect him enough to say his name right.”
The New York Post reports police were investigating the June 7th gang-related death of Eric Daniel when they raided the headquarters of Suge Knight. Cops also announced that three men arrested in relation to the search would not be charged in the killing. “We’re not filing charges today because we weren’t presented a case,” said L.A. County district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison.
NBC 4 was there after three men were arrested for conspiracy to commit murder after raids this morning at Tha Row Records headed by Suge Knight. They apparently are looking into the deaths of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls. Protestors are outside the company complaining that Suge is being singled out. Feedroom.com has since removed the video.
