Mr. Papers Says He’ll Marry Lil Kim, Talks Music, And Laughs Off Past Floyd Mayweather Rumors (Video)

Although it’s true that many of us weren’t familiar with the name Mr. Papers prior to his relationship with Lil Kim coming to light, the Bronx native is on his way to making his own impact on the industry as a recording artist and businessman. Now expecting a baby Shamara Mckoy1girl with the legendary hip-hop diva, Papers is working on new music and being pursued by labels while making sure his very pregnant girlfriend is well taken care of back at their New Jersey home.

Despite avoiding interviews in the months since news of Kim’s pregnancy emerged, Papers met up with me at the LES Clothing Flagship Store on the Lower East Side late last week to give me the ‘scoop’ on his plans to marry Kim, the past rumors about the nature of Kim’s relationship with Floyd Mayweather, and his new music project. The one thing he didn’t tell me is the baby’s name, but he did give me the ‘scoop’ on that as well once the camera was off (and as soon as he gives me the okay, I’ll tell you the name they chose). Anyway, this is the latest video installment of “The Scoop”, so check out highlights from our chat below, and then enjoy the video that goes along with it!!

ON HOW KIM’S PREGNANCY GOING:

“She’s good; she’s fat.”

ON IF HE AND KIM ARE PLANNING ON GETTING MARRIED:

“Yeah, yeah, all that. Of course, we going to do that.”

ON WHEN HE MET KIM:

“I met her two [ years ago], two years and like, five months. I met her, and that’s been my girl ever since then.”

ON PAST RUMORS THAT KIM WAS DEALING WITH FLOYD MAYWEATHER:

“What that mean? [laughs] Ay yo listen, shout out to Floyd Mayweather. They gotta talk about me – I like it when they talk about us. Make sure it’s good. He’s getting money, so make sure to keep that that type of level where it’s at. But it ain’t nothing though – they friends. I f*ck with him.”

ON HIS UPCOMING MUSIC RELEASE:

“We going to bomb the streets, bomb everywhere. I’ll probably drop it on my birthday next month. I got Cam’ron on a joint; he sent us something, we going to do something.”

“My man Fred the Godson on a couple; I got Fred on a couple joints. Shout out to Fred- he got a mix tape out. I got Corey on a joint, I got my man Fatman Scoop on a joint, my little man Remo The Hitmaker, my man Frank Benz. I got a lot of producers; a lot of joints we going to set up. It’s going to be crazy.”

Papers also revealed during our talk that Kim has been in the studio working on new music throughout her pregnancy. Check out the interview in its entirety in the video below.

NYC Media And Celebrities Attend Cynthia Horner’s Birthday Bash Hosted By Yours Truly!!
Shamara McKoy
Last Wednesday night, I had the pleasure of hosting the birthday celebration for legendary hip-hop journalist, Cynthia Horner. Held at La Nuit Restaurant in Manhattan, the party was a fitting tribute to Cynthia, whose career spans over 30 years and is highlighted by interviews with some of the most iconic stars in music.

Attendees at the event included Carol Maraj (the mother of hip-hop superstar Nicki Minaj), Delaina Dixon (VH1’s Gossip Table), actor Marc John Jeffries (Notorious), and legendary hip-hop pioneer, Roxanne Shante. Music was provided by DJ Chuck Chillout. You can check out more details on the party in an upcoming issue of Hip-Hop Weekly, where Cynthia currently serves as Editor-in-Chief.

Mob Wives, Plastic Surgery, And Wine: One-On-One With Big Ang

Angela “Big Ang” Raiola may not have officially joined Mob Wives until its second season, but she’s since emerged as the Shamara Mckoybreakout star of the hit VH1 reality series. Her drama-free attitude and sensible approach to the situations that occur on the show have garnered a huge fan base and two spin-off shows (Big Ang and Miami Monkey) for the wise-guy loving entrepreneur. During a recent phone call, Ang gave me ‘the scoop’ on filming for the upcoming season of Mob Wives, plastic surgery, and her wine company, Big Ang Wines. Check out highlights from our talk below.

ON IF THEY’VE STARTED SHOOTING FOR THE NEW SEASON OF MOB WIVES:

“We start in a couple of weeks.”

ON WHAT WAS DIFFERENT ABOUT SHOOTING WITH THE NEWCOMERS LAST SEASON VERSUS PREVIOUS SEASONS:

“It was a difference because nobody really knew each other, so it was like getting to know them. I winded up getting to love them because they were good.”

ON IF SHE THINKS SHE WILL GROW TIRED OF THE DRAMA ON THE SHOW:

“It doesn’t bother me. I don’t get in the middle of it, you know.”

ON IF THERE’S SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH PLASTIC SURGERY:

“I’m all for plastic surgery. If you need it, you get it. That’s how I feel about it. I needed a few things after I had my kids, you know. I needed a tummy tuck, I needed the boobs, you know.”

ON HER COMPANY BIG ANG WINES:

“You can find it on BigAngWines.com, but it’s in Jersey right now. In a couple of weeks, it’ll be in New York. It’s Prosecco, Chardonnay, and Cabernet. Everybody likes it.”

ON THE POSSIBILITY OF HER DOING MORE TELEVISION OUTSIDE OF MOB WIVES:

“I hope so; I would like to.”
