Lola Brooke’s “Don’t Play With It” Collaborator Billy B addresses not being included in the song performances.
Over the weekend, Brooklyn rapper Billy B posted a TikTok video implying she hasn’t been included in the hit song “Don’t Play With It” performances with Lola Brooke.
The now-deleted video shows Billy lip syncing “Perc & Sex” by YN Jay while the caption of the video said, “POV: You wake up to yet another DWPI performance in 🗽 without Billy B.”
Billy’s frustrations came just shortly after Lil Kim invited Lola to perform at the Harlem Festival of Culture earlier this week.
On Saturday, Lola’s best friend Monàe Rodriguez, addressed the situation on Facebook.
“ITS LOLA SONG! SHAWTY IS A FEATURE! SHE IS ENTITLED TO HER OPINION HOWEVER IF SHE FELT AWAY SHE COULD Have EASILY CALLED LOLA NOT GO TO THE INTERNET! TOPIC DONE!,” Rodriguez wrote.
Billy quickly commented on Rodriguez’s post and blamed Lola’s team for the recent mishap.
“Called Lola and say what,” Billy said. “Last time we spoke she told me “I could perform the song by myself and to smut it out.” How tf ima smut it out ? Go ask ppl to perform it? Get outta here more then 3 promoters came and told us when booking her they asked for contact to book me also and her team snubbed it.”
She continued, “Didn’t negotiate no numbers or take it to my lawyers or nothing! JUST FOR THEM TO NOT REGISTER ME ON THE SONG. ADD ME AS A MAIN ARTIST! SO I CAN COLLECT MY PUBLISHING WHEN I DID THAT VERSE ON THE ARMS FOR THE TOWNS!”

In addition, Billy also claim Lola’s team is sending the song to DJs without her name included. Nevertheless, Billy says there’s no beef between her and Lola and she wishes her the best.
