Looks like Keyshia Cole had a lot more to vent about besides being snubbed from the BET Awards 2011 nominations. Taking to her Twitter page again to voice out her feelings, Cole tweeted out how she is not friends with rapper Lil Kim, though it is unsure as to what prompted this message in the first place.
Cole maintained that she meant no disrespect by the tweet saying, “N while we’re addressing everything, Lil Kim and I a r not “friends” I take that term very seriously. We made wonderful music.. That is it.”
This message comes months after Lil Kim spoke out at a show about how she felt Cole’s song “I Ain’t Thru” with Nicki Minaj was a subliminal diss. Unwilling to sit in silence, this in turn led to Lil Kim responding in a tirade of tweets.
“U got that right. We are not friends. The same way U take friendship seriously i take loyalty serious. The whole world has seen me extend my hand to u over and over again. Only someone who’s trying to build a sincere relationship does shows 4 free & supports. u did not pay me a dime 4 none of that. That warrants some type of loyalty and respect,” Lil Kim voiced out.
Getting to the core of the problem, Kim continued by saying, “Friend or no friend i would have never let anybody disrespect u on my record but i can’t expect everyone to be as real as i am. At the end of the day karma is as real as i am and it’s coming to get u. oh wait…if it hasnt got u already… My love & loyalty to u got u a hit, ur friendship with ur friend got u a flop. looks like u need to choose ur friends more wisely dont u think? #teamlilkim LEGGGGOOOO. ”
“Loyalty and respect has nothing to do with friendship…BOOM,” Kim ranted. “Loyalty and respect is about returning a kindness. Have you ever came out and supported me at my shows? i dont think so. Yes it was a good look for me but it was a great look for u. At the end of the day it was a hit on YOUR album. Sticking 2 the situation. Again I would have never let anyone disrespect U on my song. That’s loyalty & respect. End of story.”
And an hour later, Cole responds back with a simple “I don’t have beef with anyone. I’m done. I feel the way I feel about friendship and loyalty. I ain’t never been fake. All I’m saying.”
Singer/songwriter Cole is still promoting her fourth album ‘Calling All Hearts‘, which has failed to do much as it has only moved 240,000 units as of March. However, she will be joining veteran R. Kelly on his national tour in the beginning of June.
