Lil Mo, pictured right with Ashanti, called out rapper Fat Joe for referring to her and rapper/actress Vita as "dusty bitches".
Lil Mo slammed Fat Joe for referring to her as a "dusty bitch crackhead" during his "Verzuz" battle with fellow rapper Ja Rule on Tuesday. She said the "Lean Back" rapper was disrespectful and totally insensitive to all people battling addiction.
Fat Joe, 51, came under fire for dissing Lil Mo and LaVita Raynor, aka Vita, after gifting Ashanti and Remy Ma with Hermès handbags.
He said Ja Rule must have found Mo and Vita in a "crack house."
Lil Mo, pictured right performing with Vita and Ja Rule, tells TMZ that Fat Joe's comments were "vile" and "disrespectful." She said he should know better than to use those degrading terms about substance abusers, especially in light of recent drug deaths, like Michael K. Williams.
In fact, Lil Mo says Joe's disses were actually triggering to her, because -- even though she's clean now -- she's dealt with her own opioid addiction issues in the past.
Fat Joe, pictured with Ashanti, apologized publicly to Lil Mo and Vita. He also says he told Lil Mo and Vita sorry to their faces in private.
Lil Mo said he shouldn't be let off the hook that easily. However, she was quick to say she doesn't want Fat Joe canceled.

According to HotNewHipHop.com, a furious Nick dropped his response track on Monday, Dec. 9, after taking the weekend off to dig up dirt on Eminem.
On the track, an old skool rapper mentions Eminem's family, his apparent affinity for crack cocaine, and that supposed sex tape involving Eminem with another man.
"I heard your chauffeur got a video of you sucking a c*ck/ You paid him off then lead him off/ Now who really the opps."
Nick said Eminem didn't waste any time sending his lawyers to address the diss track. Responding to a tweet by HotNewHipHop.com, Nick said Eminem's attorneys contacted him about that verse.
"FACTS! His lawyers didn't want that one out," Nick tweeted. "They already on my line."
Nick's claims sparked a frenzy on social media among Eminem's fans who compared notes and scoured old social media posts and Eminem's lyrics for any hint as to who the other male might be.

Jay Z added fuel to the rumor that he and his wife Beyonce recently recorded a duet album that speaks on his cheating scandal.
In somewhat related news, Steve Harvey's wife, Marjorie Harvey, shaded Beyonce by posting an Instagram image of herself wearing an impossibly tight black dress adorned with lemons -- an obvious reference to Beyonce and Jay Z's 'Lemonade' cheating scandal.
