Faith Evans talked with Tim Westwood on 1Xtra about Biggie, Tupac, East Coast vs West Coast, Lil Kim, the ‘Notorious’ movie and her new album. “It was a pleasant surprise,” Faith said about ‘Gone Already’ getting a Grammy nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. “Number one being an independent artist.

So that’s wonderful to be recognized.”
