Lil Kim & Lil Cease Reunite, Make Up at Notorious B.I.G.'s Birthday Dinner (Report)

Lil Kim and Lil Cease reunite and resolve their differences on what would have been The Notorious B.I.G.‘s 47th birthday, TMZ reports.

The rappers and former Junior M.A.F.I.A. members, ages 44 and 41, respectively, both attended Kim‘s 1st Annual B.I.G. Family Dinner held at NOMO Kitchen on Tuesday (May 21) in New York City.

A big party was thrown at TAO Downtown, which would appear to mark the first time the two have engaged in public since their falling out in 2005.

If you didn’t know, Cease testified against Kim during her federal perjury trial, assisting prosecutors’ case against her when she was discovered to have lied to a grand jury about a shooting she had witnessed. Kim spent a year in prison.

When she was released, she called out Cease and other JM members, saying their testimony was a betrayal. Cease defended himself, claiming that he wasn’t a snitch since he’d been subpoenaed and couldn’t lie on the stand.

It looks like the two have made up now, ending this years-long feud.

The duo was also seen hanging out with famous pals like Busta Rhymes, Cedric the Entertainer, and Jadakiss.

Eminem Speaks Out About Tupac & Biggie's Rap Rivalry

Eminem is sharing his thoughts on Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.‘s rap rivalry.

The 46-year-old “Killshot” rapper opened up about the late rappers while hosting 12 Days of Dissmas on his exclusive SiriusXM channel Shade 45 on Tuesday (December 25).

Joined by SiriusXM host DJ Whoo Kid and Paul Rosenberg, Eminem discussed some of hip hop’s greatest diss records ever made. Listeners heard songs from artists such as LL Cool J, N.W.A., 2Pac, and more.

On the rivalry, Eminem shared, “That, I feel like, was the first time I ever heard anybody get that personal on a diss ’cause it was definitely – most of it, majority – was personal, below-the-belt jabs and s–t, but it was done so well, and the record was just co crazy.”

“That’s another beef,” he added. “The Tupac/Biggie thing was tough because you like them both, and you’re just stuck in this weird thing where you’re bumping the Tupac diss record, then you’re bumping something from Biggie that might be dissing him in it.”

Eminem also discussed the first 50 Cent song he ever heard and the “dangerous” energy he felt when listening to it.
