Jermaine Dupri joined the Drink Champs team over at Revolt TV for a wide-ranging discussion about the highlights of his career, including some behind-the-scenes intel about the creation of Usher's My Way track "Just Like Me." During the studio session for the classic '90s collaboration, Dupri said, the Notorious B.I.G. pulled a gun on Lil' Kim.

"So what [Biggie] did was he wrote the rap for Lil' Kim, and Lil' Kim at this particular point in time, this was the time B.I.G. I'm thinking, he fucked Kim's sister," Dupri said after speaking on Biggie's studio technique. "This is in the music though. This is in the music. And she found out about it, so she was upset when she came to the studio about this and he couldn't really get her to do the rap."

Dupri continued, noting that he and Usher were young at the time and just watched the situation unfold. Eventually, an argument between Biggie and Kim spilled into the hallway and Dupri followed them. "Me and Usher was just, you know, we was there, young, watching what was going on and B.I.G. pulled the strap out on her," Dupri said. Asked to clarify why, Dupri said, "To just let her know that he was gonna kill her." Kim, Dupri added, "Was upset and really couldn't do the verse."
