Just over a week ago, news surfaced of a Christmas Eve concert in Brooklyn, called the “Christmas Massacre”, in which Foxy Brown would unveil a diss for Lil Kim who has been going at newcomer Nicki Minaj in recent months.
On fliers for the show, promoters hailed the diss track as “the most anticipated response since Jay-Z’s ‘Takeover.’ ” However, no one ever got to hear it.
According to TheBoomBox.com, Foxy Brown never showed for her holiday performance, so the “Christmas Massacre” was never heard, thus never made its way to the Internet.
Foxy has since explained why, via her Twitter page (@FoxyDonDiva).
“Still grieving the loss of someone special & dear to me,” she tweeted “I’d like to personally apologize for the confusion and venue changing of the beautiful ‘Christmas In Brooklyn’ party. Although the confusion fell far beyond my control, my responsibility and concern is to my fans and family; my priority. As I always say … the Devil’s at his busiest when ur about to get busy.”
Before signing off, she added: “From my heart, I luv yall. Pray for ur girl. Something bigger’s going on. But GOD got me covered in his blood.”
Fox did not mention the alleged diss track, and as of press time, it was unclear if it will ever be released.
The rivarly between the female rap legends dates all the way back to the mid-1990s, when both rappers were just starting out in the music biz. The tension culminated in the infamous 2001 shooting outside Hot 97 offices in New York, which later led to Lil Kim receiving a one year prison sentence for refusing to snitch on those involved.
