The war of the female MCs continue…
After Nicki Minaj finally threw a few jabs Lil Kim’s way during an interview on Hot 97, in which she called Kim a “sore loser”, the former Junior Mafia rapper hopped on a track to fire back at Nicki directly.
Earlier this month, Kim dissed Nicki during a show in Queens, but didn’t mention her by name. Now, on her recently leaked “Black Friday” track, Kim goes the Young Money rapper directly.
Over Pharoahe Monch’s instrumental for “Simon Says,” Kim spits some harsh bars and both Nicki and her labelmate Drake: “This hood sh**, you and Drake ain’t built for / This the sh** the other bitch almost got killed for.”
She later accuses Nicki of being her modern day clone: “This ain’t a championship fight, I been the greatest / See the fact is, what you doing, I did it / Lames tryna clone my style and run wit it / That’s cool, I was the first one wit it / You’s a Lil’ Kim wannabe, you just hate to admit it.”
The war between the pair has been heating up. After Nicki Minaj’s “Roman’s Revenge” hit the ‘net, many speculated whether she was taking aim at Kim with a few of the track’s bars. On it, she spits: “Nicki, she’s just mad ’cause you took the spot / Word, that bitch mad ’cause I took the spot? / Well, bitch, if you ain’t shittin’, then get off the pot.”
While she denied rumors, Nicki finally addressed the issue with Kim during an interview with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez last week. She explained that although she’s always given Kim her props, she will not bite her tongue if she continues throwing shots at her.
“It’s one of those moments where you say, ‘Don’t play with me,’ because I respect you, I love you, I’ve said it in every interview time and time again, and if that’s not good enough with you mama, then it’s something deep rooted in you,” Nicki said. “Something is bothering you inside. That’s your insecurity bothering you. [If] it’s not Nicki Minaj, it would have been any girl that started poppin’. She picked a fight with Foxy [Brown], then she picked a fight with Eve, then she picked a fight with Remy [Ma], then it was Ms. [Voletta] Wallace, then it was Nicki Minaj. Everytime you in the news is ’cause you gettin’ at somebody. Where’s your music? Put your music out. When I see your name on ‘Billboard,’ that’s when I’ll respond to you. Other than that, goodbye.”
Uh oh… will Nicki respond?
