Kim.She.Is.


Excerpt from my LA Weekly interview with Kim Hill:

"That line in 'The Real Hip-Hop'" — a blistering battle track aimed at the Peas on her fantastic 2002 sophomore solo album, Suga Hill — "where I go, 'Who's the white girl singing in your video?' is not aimed at Fergie." Fergie, of course, is Hill's white replacement in the Peas. "That song was written long before she was even in the picture. It was inspired by the Peas using Esthero on their second album and them letting the record company sorta edge me out. And it's not even a personal thing against Esthero. It's just that the Peas had lost the vision we started with and that really pained me. People think I have beef with Fergie, and really, there's none. I don't care if you do pop shit or gangsta, if you're a woman in this industry, it's still hard. It's still a battle for respect. I would never just come for her in that way. Now, let some bitch really come for me, and it's on," she laughs.
