However, after a snippet of the track, titled “Massacre”, surfaced, the Brooklyn rapper finally dropped the anticipated show on Thursday night (January 13) on DJ Kay Slay’s Hot 97 radio show.
On the song, Brown pulled from Jay-Z’s catalog, spitting bars aimed at her long-time rival over Hov’s “So Ghetto.”
“First the bitch wanna hate on Foxy / Ten years later, now she hating on Minaj, whoa,” Fox spits.
The line refers to Lil Kim war of words with newcomer Nicki Minaj over the past year, where both took shots at each other in interviews, as well as a diss tracks — including Kim’s “Black Friday” and Nicki’s “Roman’s Revenge.”
On Brown’s “Massacre,” she doesn’t mention Kim by name, early on, but it’s clear who’s she’s talking about.
“On my Bernie Madoff sh**, f*** the whole IRS,” Foxy snapped, a direct jab at Kim and her new “collective.”
By the end, Foxy goes in, saying Kim’s career has stalled: “Brooklyn, baby, y’all taking it home / With just my Timbs on and my microphone / Glass house, throwing them stones / Bear witness to the rise and fall of Miss Kimberly Jones.”
The rivarly between the female rap legends dates all the way back to the mid-1990s, when both rappers were just starting out in the music biz. The tension culminated in the infamous 2001 shooting outside Hot 97 offices in New York, which later led to Lil Kim receiving a one year prison sentence for refusing to snitch on those involved.
