- Lil’ Kim released her own remix to Rihanna’s “Hard,” but reveals that another pairing could be in the works. “I’m a huge Rihanna fan, and she’s a friend of mine, so if I had to guess, I’m 90% sure that song is probably in the works,” she told Australian website Lifelounge. But Kim, who’s currently playing intimate shows in the U.S. and abroad, doesn’t want people to judge the song before it happens. “I look at it this way: if it happens, it happens. And it should be a surprise. It shouldn’t be something that people are anticipating, or have their own personal opinions on it before it even comes out. So I probably won’t ever mention that again.” Although she may have choice words for Diddy and Drake, it’s all love when it comes to RiRi. “I just love Rihanna, I think she’s great,” gushed Kim.
- Everyone is begging for a beat from Alex Da Kid these days. The British producer currently has two songs in the top 5 on the Billboard Hot 100—Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie” and B.o.B and Hayley Williams’ “Airplanes.” Alex stopped by Rap-Up’s Pre-BET Awards Lounge last weekend to score some free gifts and chat about his latest projects including Rihanna.
