Lil Mama Sheds Tears On The Radio, Discusses Her Issues With Nicki Minaj

Yesterday Lil Mama stopped by Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club in New York to chat with host Charlamagne, and got unexpectedly emotional during the interview, going so far as to shed a few tears. What made the “NY NY LA LA” rapper break down? No, it wasn’t because anyone accused her lip gloss of not being cool or poppin’ — it was in response to being told that she didn’t seem focused on music anymore, coupled with rising grief about her mother succumbing to cancer. Head below to watch Lil Mama go “On & On & On” about her music, promoting her career, and her beef with Nicki Minaj. (Tears flow near the 20-minute mark.)

Yeah, The Breakfast Club sometimes makes us cry, too — but we’re talking about the John Hughes movie.
