Yesterday in Beverly Hills, the ladies of Bad Boy--Lil Kim, Faith Evans, Total and Laurieann Gibson--came together for Ciroc's 'Empowered Women' brunch that honored the female superstars.
After the brunch, Lil Kim and Faith sat together to reflect on their relationship, life on Bad Boy, and the loss of Prodigy of Mobb Deep. Obviously, Kim and Mobb collaborated on one of the greatest hip-hop songs ever, the remix to "Quiet Storm." The Queen Bee said P's death was not only a shock, but it was extra painful because they had quarreled and hadn't resolve it.
"I'm real funny when it comes to stuff like that on Instagram," Kim began to tell. "Sometimes I [post about people's death], but it's hard when it's somebody close to you. When we was coming up and had our record, we did everything together. And when [Prodigy's death] happened, me and his relationship wasn't in the best place because we were almost like family, too. We argue and they pass, it's the worst thing. That's like the worst thing."
Despite not seeing eye to eye, Kim says she still would perform the classic with Mobb from time to time.
"We still came together.," she said with tears beginning to form. "The last thing we did...Havoc is my baby. He always tried to keep the peace between [me and Prodigy]. We were not, like, speaking, but we were on stage and we always felt the energy with each other. But it's the worst thing. I love him to death. I wish I was able to see him and speak to him. But I know his spirit is always here." (Revolt)

Lil Kim to Pay Tribute to Prodigy at 2017 BET Awards
The 2017 BET Awards will reportedly honor Mobb Deep’s Prodigy, after the critically acclaimed rapper died a mere five days before the ceremony’s taping. While such tributes are common, such as Chris Lighty being honored at the 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards, a recent report indicates things will be toned down for Prodigy’s tribute.
“The BET Awards will pay tribute to Prodigy, but it won't be a major spectacle—instead, his rap partner Havoc and Lil Kim will do the honors on their own,” read a TMZ report published Saturday, citing anonymous sources.
Lil Kim and Mobb Deep collaborated on the 1999 single “Quiet Storm (Remix).” Both Kim and Havoc are expected to share personal statements about Prodigy during the award show taping.
The report went on to add that executives behind the scenes at the BET Awards attempted to arrange a tribute performance which would have incorporated other artists, but they were leery of damaging relationships with other acts after contracts to perform had already been confirmed.
