Long before Jennifer Hudson made it big, Lil' Mo was poised to be the future of R&B. Signed to Elektra Records, she worked closely with Missy Elliott. At the time, Missy was one of the biggest stars in the game.
After meeting Irv Gotti at an industry party, Lil' Mo was partnered with Murder Inc. The partnership led to Lil' Mo being featured on a number of Ja Rule's hits. But, within a year, Ashanti was signed and Lil' Mo moved on.
Since this time, Lil' Mo has struggled to release new music and to garner radio play. The faces and names have changed since she dominated. Following her starring role in the Dreamgirls film, Jennifer Hudson rose to fame.
Currently, one of the biggest female R&B stars out, Hudson recently celebrated her 30th birthday. In attendance at the party was Lil' Mo. The songstress sang to Hudson, wishing her a happy birthday.
