In an exclusive interview on Rap Fix Live on Wednesday, Lil Kim detailed how she has dealt with her close friend and rap mentor, an arguably one of the greatest rappers of all-time the Notorious B.I.G’s death after 16 years. She spoke to Bun B about Biggie’s death and getting through the difficult time after his passing.
“Bun B, that’s a very tough question because it took me so long — super long to
deal with the loss of a person who was such a huge impact in my life.” -Lil Kim
Today, Lil Kim will celebrate for the first time the anniversary of Biggie’s death at club Glazz in Queens, New York.
“That’s my first event ever on March 9 because I used to get offered events a lot and I said ‘no, “I never celebrate that day. It’s so funny because I can always feel when that day is approaching. I get so depressed. I get so sad. It happens before March, in February. I can feel it coming and I used to all say ‘no.’ “So to answer Bun B, I’m just now getting over that fact, and it’s how many years later.” -Lil Kim
