Lil Kim may have her sights aimed at newcomer Nicki Minaj, but word is another female MC has their scope aimed directly at Kim.
Her name is Foxy Brown.
According to TheBoomBox.com, Foxy is planning the release of a Kim diss record called “Christmas Massacre,” which she’ll be dropping at a holiday party performance in Brooklyn on Christmas Eve.
Flyers for the performance call the diss: “the most anticipated response since (Jay Z’s ‘Takeover’).” Furthermore, the performance will supposedly “address the issue with Lil Kim”, while featuring a “shout out to her girl Nicki Minaj.”
The rivarly between the female rap legends dates all the way back to the mid-1990s, when both got their starts in music.
In early 2001, their entourages collided during a now-infamous shooting outside New York’s Hot 97 radio station, which later led to Kim being convicted of perjury and being sentenced to a year in prison.
Their war of words reportedly began when Kim dissed Fox on a track with Lil Cease called “Play Around” in 1999. She followed with another diss on her The Notorious K.I.M. album in 2000, which prompted a response from Brown, who retaliated with a verse on the track “Bang Bang,” from Capone-N-Noreaga’s The Reunion: “Could give a f*** if your album pushed back/ ‘Cause when it hit the streets, bitch, it’s still weak/ It still sound lame, and my name still reign.”
That beef seemed to have ended long ago, but apparently Foxy is ready to rekindle, and has been doing so over the past year with subliminal disses.
At press time, Foxy has yet to publicly announce the upcoming diss song, but it’s reportedly going down at Brooklyn’s Club Jelani’s, on Dec. 24, 2010.
