Lil Kim will not be joining Puff Daddy and the Family for their gig at the 2016 Essence Festival. The Queen Bee announced that she had to cancel her performance "due to unfulfilled business obligations."

"She's saddened by the news but matters are not within her control," Lil Kim's rep said in a statement.

Puff Daddy and the rest of the crew are still set to be in New Orleans this weekend as originally planned. Lil Kim also assured fans that this cancellation will not affect the upcoming Bad Boy Reunion tour which is scheduled to start up in August.
