Back in 2015, Lil Mama revealed she was near suicidal after crashing Jay-Z’s VMA performance. Click Here if you missed the story.

Last night on ‘WE TVs hit series ‘Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta’  Lil Mama doesn’t understand why she has to keep talking about the JAY-Z incident.

MC Lyte brings up Lil Mama’s recent trip to the studio with Da Brat.

MC Lyte brings up that a question about the JAY-Z incident which is something Lil Mama is likely going to be asked about forever. Lil Mama infamously crashed JAY-Z and Alicia Keys’s “Empire State of Mind” performance at the 2009 VMAs.

Lil Mama says, “I don’t think that it’s fair for me to have to keep answering the same question over and over again.”

MC Lyte replies, “They’re waiting for you to feel remorseful about it.” Lil Mama gets little annoyed at what MC Lyte is telling her. “Are you kidding me right now? Sometimes she says things to me and it hurts my feelings. Lyte is definitely tough love.”

All Of This Winning. Beyonce and Jay-Z’s ‘On the Run II’ Tour Grosses Over $250 Million

Animated GIF

The numbers for Beyonce and Jay-Z four-month-long, time-zone spanning “On the Run II” tour are in….

According to reports, The 48-date tour launched in Cardiff, Wales on June 6, rolled through Europe for 18 shows before crossing the Atlantic for another 30 shows in North America, wrapping at Seattle’s CenturyLink field on Oct. 4.

The tour sold 2,169,050 tickets for an average of 55,617 per show; each show’s average gross was $6,514,120.69. The biggest payday was a two-night stand at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, which grossed $14.1 million.

Just days after the tour started, the duo surprise-released their first joint album, “Everything Is Love.” And the couple’s marriage — so intimately documented on the trio of albums that began with Beyonce’s “Lemonade,” continued with Jay’s “4:44” and concluded with “Everything Is Love” — was unquestionably center stage during the shows.
