If you wish to hear bleeped-out curs, head to a live awards-show speech or, even better, Megan Thee Stallion and Lil Kim’s brand-new “Fallback” remix. The brand-new collab premiered on Hot 97 Thursday, September 9, and, since the FCC restricts profane, indecent, and profane language on the radio or broadcast tv, there’s a series of censors in Kim’s opening bars alone. And, to add fuel to the fire, the tune hasn’t been promoted by Megan Thee Stallion herself and isn’t readily available on streaming platforms, so the only method to listen is through clips on Twitter or YouTube bootlegs that keep getting copyright strikes. Launch the tune, we plead.
The track does not even technically exist worldwide, however 50 Cent has actually currently taken it upon himself to stir drama. He implicated Lil’ Kim of dissing Nicki Minaj’s kid with the opening lyrics in a since-deleted Instagram post. “N- – – -, you’s a bitch, your dad’s a bitch, your bro’s a bitch,” Lil’ Kim raps. “Keep imitating this and your boy gon’ be a bitch.” “QGTM @nickiminaj you much better light her ass up i’m enjoying,” 50 Cent, who’s formerly beefed with Kim, composed, going on to describe Kim’s own boy, who was born with an uncommon eye condition. “She stated something about the infant. her infant eye screwed up. LOL.” Lil’ Kim sent out that energy right back in the remarks: “It’s okay he simply doin what bitch niggaz do. Now view what God do to his Life!”
The Barbz did certainly come for Lil’ Kim on Twitter after several users concurred the lyrics appeared to pursue Minaj’s 1-year-old boy with hubby Kenneth Petty, who was founded guilty of sexual attack in 1995 and just recently sentenced to house arrest for stopping working to sign up as a sex transgressor. In her Instagram Story, the “Crush on You” rap artist cleaned up the confusion with a longer declaration clarifying the lyrics have to do with her ex. “To attempt and twist my words to have a reason to take digs at my kid is revolting,” she composed. “I are among the most disrespected legends in the video game however what you will refrain from doing is come for MY KID.” All of this back-and-forth, however we do not even have the specific variation of the tune on Spotify yet. Pass us the mic or something.
