Lil’ Kim ‘a white woman trapped in a black woman’s body’

Mother of Notorious BIG lays into rapper

Voletta Wallace, the mother of Notorious BIG has said that Lil’ Kim is a “white woman trapped in a black woman’s body”.

Wallace was speaking about her late son’s biopic ‘Notorious’, in which Lil’ Kim apparently said that the actress who played her was “too dark”

“She felt the character we chose for her was ‘too dark,’ ” she told Hip Hop Weekly. “Do you know why the character was too dark for her? Because she’s a white woman trapped in a black woman’s body, and you can tell the world I said it, because those are Lil’ Kim‘s words. She should be ashamed of herself.”


Meanwhile, P Diddy has said that he feels Lil’ Kim has a right to be upset about how she was portrayed in the movie.

In a Youtube clip, Diddy said:

“The only thing that I can say about the movie … that was great from their relationship is that he really respected her as an artist, as an MC and was into her like that. All the other extra stuff, it was a movie. And Kim will have her chance, her own movie will come out there. Give Kim her chance. Don’t believe what you saw in the movie; it wasn’t only about that. She was with us, that was our queen. She’ll always be the queen. She got every right to feel that way. The movie is really about Big. Don’t focus on none of our parts; focus on Big as the man.”
