Lil Mama aims for Jay-Z collaboration

17 Feb

Almost six months have passed since Lil Mama ruined Jay-Z while he was performing his future hit, “Empire State of Mind,” for the first time. The song was set to be the third single released from The Blueprint 3, so he and Alicia Keys performed it at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Towards the end of the performance, Lil Mama walks onto the stage. It caught Jay-Z off guard, but he maintained his cool.

However, in the coming days after her stunt, it was revealed just how upset Jay-Z was. It was said that Beyonce had to calm him down backstage. Listening to the end of his performance, he does acknowledge Lil Mama saying, “you just gonna T-Pain me?” After he makes that statement, he taps her on the back. The frustration is obvious by the expression on his face. The following day, Lil Mama apologized for her actions, going as far as to remix the song she ruined.

Usually, Jay-Z does not express his opinion on other artists. He has yet to say anything negative about Lil Mama, but it is clear that he is not fond of her. Right now, Jay-Z is working on his next album, as is Lil Mama. For her new album, she wants to land a big-name collaborator. The artist of her choice is Jay-Z. While she does not have anything set for her album, Lil Mama does want to make sure that Jay-Z does make an appearance.
