    Drama alert.

    Lil Kim's publicist said she will not engage in a beef with up and comer Azealia Banks. Banks wanted Lil Kim to appear on a song, wrote the verse for Kim to sing/rap and that pissed off Kim. She wants to write her own rap parts, even on a feature. Banks took to Twitter to explain that Kim doesn't write her own raps, which caused Kim's publicist to issue the following statement. Apparently Kim doesn't want to fan the flames of a fake feud.

    This is unedited for spelling, grammar or format:

    Earlier today a press release went out making a claim that there was friction between Hip Hop Icon "Lil Kim" and aspiring hip artist azealia banks. The release comes as a surprise to our team,being that my client and azealia have NEVER spoke to one another or met AT ALL. Kim was actually very flattered azealia's public admiration for her, which is why it's so hard to understand how someone who claims to be a true Lil Kim fan could flip the script so easily on someone who was supposedly their idol. It is also VERY interesting that NO ONE from her team made any attempts to reach out to anyone from our team to voice any concerns or problems that they may have had. I have NEVER heard of anyone having a conflict with someone they have NEVER met with or personally spoke with. We have no idea what they are referencing and have no desire to discuss the matter any further as there is nothing to talk about. It honestly seems that someone from azealia's team would rather have her fans buy into manufactured drama instead of buying music. Kim knows nothing of any beef, and furthermore has had nothing but nice things to say about her. We don't know what this is and will not address this any further. It seems that this is another sad attempt by someone trying to use my client for publicity. We wish her nothing but the best.

    Team Kim or Team Banks?
