Lil Kim was banned from producing and releasing music in 2009 after a lawsuit with Brookland Media (Trackmasters) for $2.5 million. Kim sat down with DJ Envy on MTV’s ‘Sucka Free’ where she revealed that she was able to get away with putting out “Black Friday” because it was a mixtape.
“Contractually, by the courts, I could not record any music. I wasn’t supposed to put any music out. Technically ‘Black Friday’ was a mixtape, so I was able to get away with that. But technically they could have come after me if I were to put out an album. I couldn’t do it. So, this is something that my fans don’t know, but now you know. Legally I wasn’t allowed or able to do music. And ’til this day I’m not going to say I’m glad that the lawsuit happened with Trackmasters, but it made me more of a business woman.”
