The 11 Best Quotes From Lil Kim's Breakfast Club Interview

During a sit down interview with Power 105's The Breakfast Club, Lil Kim spoke on her cosmetic surgery, issues with Cash Money, her friction with Nicki Minaj, her past relationship with Scott Storch and more. Check out Kimberly Jones' top 11 quotables.

On wanting to marry Scott Storch and dealing with his drug issues
“I love Scott. I would have married him… He was so clouded. I don’t even think he knew he was talking to when I reached out to him. He has so many horrible people around him.”

On why she didn’t accept Storch’s proposal
“It kills me, but I gave it back. I never took the ring put it on and wore it… I was like, yes! But not now… Because I was on my way to prison and he wanted me to move to Miami officially. But I was basically living with him. I didn’t see the reason why I needed to move out there when I had all this going on.”

On dating Maino and his assumed infidelity
“We had a lot of fun together. Maino is interesting. He’s an interesting person. He knows what he has to do.”

On Faith writing in her book about walking in on Kim and Biggie in bed
“There was only two people there and that was Cease and Roc and Cease was sleep. But that’s not how it went down. That’s probably how she wants to remember it, but that’s not how it went down… I know he loved me to death, but [dating] married men is just not a good aura.”

On Voletta Wallace and the movie Notorious
“See, Big’s mom doesn’t know Biggie and she barely knows Christopher… It’s the truth. She used to kick him out daily. She did not care to know him or get to know him. Don’t get me wrong, he loved his mother and I’m pretty sure as a mom she loved her son, but she didn’t know him. So right now the people who are telling that movie weren’t the people who were around him every single day.”

On her cosmetic surgery
“Why would you ask me that? But there’s so many people who have surgery, so I don’t know where that question is coming from, but thank you for the compliment.”

On the beef with Nicki Minaj
“How come when I come at places, they want to ask me these questions but they don’t ever ask her? She has a way of trying to avoid the situation and y’all let her do it.”

On Nicki Minaj possibly stealing her sound
“They put the record out. When they saw the response, they pulled the record… Then it’s like I’m not even hearing from them. If you listen to that song, the way I ddi my vocals, hers were different from how I did my vocals at that time. Shortly after that she started releasing all these records, doing my vocals the way I did my vocals… On her new album she has a song called ‘Automatic’ and the song is so similar to the song that I played for Slim."

On Nicki Minaj as an artist
"I'm not saying she's a horrible artist, but I definitely think she's overrated... She's alright."

On Azealia Banks' Twitter shots
"I never met this girl a day in my life. I never talked to this chick… I think it’s in chicks’ contracts when they come out, you gotta go at Lil Kim."

Former Chicago Cop Jason Van Dyke Sentenced For Killing Laquan McDonald

Former Chicago police officer, Jason Van Dyke, could end up serving just over three years in prison for killing 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. Van Dyke was sentenced to 81 months Friday (Jan. 18), and according to the Chicago Tribune , the former officer is eligible to receive credit for good behavior.

Cook County Judge Vincent Gaughan had to decide between sentencing Van Dyke for second-degree murder or aggravated battery, the latter of which carried a mandatory minimum of six years in prison, the Tribune reports. Gaughan decided that it made more sense to sentence Van Dyke for murder, which makes him eligible for early release.

McDonald was shot to death in 2014. At the time, authorities claimed that the teen was behaving erratically while carrying a small knife. The police department waited 13 months to release video of the shooting. In the footage, McDonald is seen walking away from the cops as Van Dyke opens fire, shooting him 16 times. Van Dyke, a 14-year veteran of the CPD, was arrested and quickly released on bond the day that the video was made public. He was found guilty of second-degree murder and more than a dozen charges of aggravated battery last October.

Darren O'Brien, Van Dyke’s lawyer, pushed for sentencing “leniency,” due in part to his client’s clean criminal record. Depicting O’Brien as the victim, Van Dyke stated that his client feared for his life when he killed McDonald.

“He didn’t start the confrontation,” O’Brien said. “He reacted to what Mr. McDonald did..Everything that happened was set in motion by Mr. McDonald.”

Gaughan called the court case a tragedy for families from both parties. “It’s just so senseless that these acts occur because you can see the pain on both sides. This is a tragedy for both sides."

Van Dyke's sentence came a day after a Cook County judge acquitted three CPD officers charged with covering up the shooting.

Maxine Waters Meets With CBS To Discuss Media Diversity And Inclusion

California Rep. Maxine Waters met with CBS' Vice President of News and Executive Director of Staff Development and Diversity to discuss the lack of media diversity and inclusion within the media empire.

Their meeting steemed from the network's recent release of their predominately clear  team for the coverage of the 2020 presidential election. Comprised of 4 white producers, 5 white-passing reporters and 3 journalists of color, though the 2020 campaigns reporting staff does not have any black anchors.

It's Official: The @CBSNews 2020 Election Team has assembled! https://t.co/0GBCw4mj7s pic.twitter.com/E0rUDAkzf7

Waters, like other prominent speakers in the black community, have discussed their reluctance to embrace the staff citing issues with who will tackle the roles that racism will play in elections and the role racism has been playing in the United States. Taking the issues directly to the source, the congresswomen had a discussion with the higher up's to talk redirection.

“The CBS representatives accepted full responsibility and understood the troubling optics-- and subsequent public backlash -- that occurred as a result of the rollout of their 2020 presidential election team. CBS admitted that the initial 2020 campaign team did not reflect the diversity that the company had committed to; assured me that it will not happen again; and revealed that in the coming months they will unveil a more diverse and inclusive slate of African American journalists and journalists from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences,"  Waters said in a press statement.

"They also identified key individuals in Washington, D.C. and New York City, NY whom they have brought onto their team to fulfill this mission and ensure their news organization reflects the diversity of the country and the communities who will most certainly be engaged in the 2020 elections."

The 43rd district representative has vowed to hold CBS accountable for their diversity issues and is dedicated to working alongside her colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus.
