Just when it seemed that the controversy surrounding
the dying Nas/Jay-Z feud was winding down,
a new spark seemed to be lit. Instead of a record coming from Jay-Z or Nas,
the record was allegedly recorded by none other than Nas’ baby’s mama, who goes
by the name of Carmen. The song, "Carmen’s Got A Gun" was recorded
as a response to Jay Z’s "Super Ugly." Apparently that was a hoax
and the real Carmen has stepped forward to speak her mind. In a press release
Carmen said the following:
“I understand that there is a new song receiving
airplay titled “Carmen’s Got a Gun”. While I can appreciate that
someone felt the need to respond to this controversy on my behalf, I would like
to state for the record that I am not a rapper and I did not record this song.
I also do not own a gun nor am I supporter of violence.
It becomes increasingly difficult for my daughter
and I to have a personal life when individuals use my private life for their
own benefit. And while I’m all for any woman taking a stand and making
one listen to what they have to say, It is NOT appreciated when it’s done
at mine or my daughter’s expense.
That said, I would like to wish this new artist,
whoever she may be, the best of luck. But again, she is Not me. I would also
like to thank everyone for their overwhelming support that I have been receiving.
Very soon, the world will hear what I have to say.”
-The Real Carmen.
