Brooklyn's own Lil Kim recently came forward to explain why she decided to turn down Jay-Z and his offer to sign with his new Roc Nation label. Despite turning down Jigga's offer, Lil Kim says they are still close friends and she is not ruling out a collaboration with him in the future.
"I did get offers from representatives from Roc Nation and I did get phone calls from representatives from Roc Nation. A couple representatives from Def Jam had also reached out to me. I think they're both amazing companies and I think it would've been brilliant for me and Jay to collaborate and team up together. However it just didn't pan out like that. Not to say that something with me and Jay can't happen in the future, but I doubt if Jay-Z or Roc Nation will be a part of my upcoming album. He and I are really good friends. We both were excited about the idea of us collaborating and maybe me signing with Roc Nation. I think Jay-Z is letting me be Kim at this moment. I think he feels that I deserve to be Kim and also to have everything that… It's hard for record companies to sign females these days and give them exactly what they want and need. I understand that. It's a different world out there." (Rap-Up)
