Our very own Chad Borden sat down with Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Eric Bellinger just moments after he stepped off stage performing at Sterling Sound in New York City. The artist was invited by Bridget Kelly‘s people while in town working on new music, taking meetings, and recently performed at SOB’s. We spoke about his current mixtape, Born II Sing Vol. III, which is available right now, writing for Chris Brown on his forthcoming album, X, as well as penning songs for Brandy, and making the transition from songwriting to being an artist.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for nearly two decades, then you know that Brooklyn’s hottest female emcees Foxy Brown and Lil’ Kim do not like each other. Over the years, there have been much speculation as to what may have caused tension between both ladies – no real answer as of today on why they don’t get along. Kim has her own take on the situation, Foxy has hers. One thing is for sure, the two were once good friends between all the fame and fortune. Both made popular by their male counterparts and mentors – Jay-Z and the late great Notorious B.I.G.
There have been different stories about how the two were supposed to record a joint record together, simply titled Thelma and Louise, but once the time came, egos got in the way. Kim claims Foxy thought she was “too hot” at the time, and when Foxy was finally ready, Kim had already moved on. Then there are the reports that both girls couldn’t get along during Diddy’s (then Puff Daddy) No Way Out tour in 1997 and that she was eventually kicked off as a result. In various interviews over the years, Kim has made it clear that she dislike Inga (Foxy’s real name), and has even gone as far as saying she has a slight mental problem. Foxy eventually said she extended an olive branch to Kim, in hopes of calling a truce and making amends, but Kim never accepted and has been very vocal about not wanting to ever deal with “homegirl” at any capacity.
