If you thought Lil’ Kim had said all she could say about Nicki Minaj, you ain’t seen nothing yet. The Queen Bee goes in on Young Money’s Barbie, Drake, Diddy, and Rick Ross in an interview with ThisIs50. Among the topics she discussed…
• How Nicki has been subliminally taking shots at her and other female MCs for the past year. “It’s obvious that I’m who she wants to be like. It’s obvious that she likes me and wants to be like me, but she’s not paying this homage.”
• She talks about her close relationship with Cash Money CEO Slim and how she considered signing with the label. “If [Nicki] and I would’ve rocked out together, I would’ve been able to help her.”
• She did a record for Birdman called “Grindin’ Making Money.” Nicki was later added, but the song was cut from Baby’s album and the video was scrapped. [Editor's note: The song was included as a bonus track on Pricele$$.]
• She calls Drake a “punk pussy” for his comments about her. “At the end of the day, this ni**a wore his heart on his sleeve by coming at me and I’m a fucking girl. Ray J’s the one who said everything. You ain’t mentioned this ni**a’s name one time.”
• She thought it was disrespectful of Diddy for not calling her before Ray J, but he’s still her brother. “I can’t disown Puffy at this moment. … Puffy should be ashamed of himself.”
• She doesn’t see Rick Ross as Biggie’s replacement. Although she likes some of his music, she wishes he would have owned up to being a correctional officer.
• She loves 50 Cent “to death” and feels Rick Ross will never be in the same league as him. “ goes in the museum. I can’t really say that about Rick Ross.”
Kim, Kim, Kim, Kim
You are not current Queen.
Its not like Kim is the Michael Jackson of rap.
He had hits in albums and singles up until he died.
Where has Kim been?
Her last album and “Download” ? Um…
And it’s not helping dissing the hottest hip-hop male and female currently.
“Download” was not an album, it was a single she just dropped. Know your facts before making irrelevant stuff.
Kim is the ONLY QUEEN in Rap game. Ricki Pinaj will never come for her and thats fact!
LOL Kim looking weak as hell dissing minaj she just doing it for attention Kim is weak in the streets right now. You can tell she been in prison cuz she’s ridin 50 cents dck like he still sells records.
KIM is PRESSED!!!!
She is doing all of this for promotion. Trying to get her name back out in the public.
And she calls herself LEGENDARY. If you are so legendary then why do you have yo stoop to such levels to get recognized? She is a Pathetic!
watch the past inteviews of nicki before she got sign & look at both pictures of kim & nicki u can see the truth also listen to lil kim music in the past & u get the truth nicki plagiaris everything of lil kim from image to fashion only thing nicki has is youth and animation
OmGee LiL KiiM need 2 sit her ass down like fharreal she don’t EXIST no more she’s dead nicki minaj is the best thing tht ever happen 2 thiis rap shiit like forreal and drake was just beiin a sweet heart so LEAVE THEM ALONE!
I gotta say im going with Kim on this one, she always was the best feMC anyway. and as far as that Ricky thing goes, you can’t compare a C.O. with minimal skills on the mic who used to call himself Teflon with The Notorious B.I.G.! f*ck Officer Ricky!
Whooooaa , I’m bout to go in ..first off she actin like she was the first b*tch to rap on earth , and 2nd of all she needs to stop , like she came at Foxy , & Remy , and she lost lyrically , and it hurt her carrer, 2nd Nicki yea she did stuff you did, but she has her own lil twist and she goes harder, plus Nicki is not thinking bout your a*s…please she busy counting money,and for you calling drake p*ssy….honey your just mad cuz u are jealous cuz another rap b*tch from NY is better than you, and I love Nicki with all my heart , but Remy!!!! Will destroy alll you b*tches….that the queen, and she said it herself…or you tryna forget she aired you …note to self …you can’t rap and your just popular jealous bird frm Brooklyn…
Lil Nose is really starting to look pathetic and you can clearly shes noticed how much attention this situation has brought her so now shes not trying to let it go because this is the most relevant shes been in i dont know how long! Nicki Minaj is here to stay and slay so she might as well go on and get over it! No rap bitch can see Nicki on the charts right now and thats wat matters!
@dayday I kinda agree with you cause I love Eve. I love her flow. Anyways I will always ride wit Kim. All of this made me appreciate her music more since everything else today is trash. No one can get mad at her for speaking her mind. Diddy cant speak cuz he aint been hot since the 90s, rick ross is a straight up punk with his fat ass. Nicki stans can say what they want but Queen B will always win.
I agree with 1/2 of whatever Kim said. She honestly should let go of all the Nicki drama, it’s petty. Her comment about Drake being a “punk pu**y”? Uneccessary, but true. Diddy is disrespectful and more and more he is showing that he never cared about Big. That was Kim’s heart, to a T. Rick Ro$$ being compared to Big? Unrealistic, and once again disrespectful. 50 Cent will go down it hip-hop history. Wonder why Kim took the time to give him a shout out after their drama. Interesting…
Trey is right.
She’s so jealous, she should be ashamed, but at least we are speakin of her now, what we didn’t since 1990 i guess…
And lame from 50 to trying to make some buzz like that, and make her compare Ross to 50, AGAIN!! WTF?!
Whatever, ppl who are dissin other ones are lame.
The ONLY person Kim should be mad at or dissing is the doctors that fucked her face & body up!!!! She is SOOO dated her time is up and she’s just dissing people right now to get some type of attention and publicity!! #FAIL
i lik lil kim she was da shii .WAS(90′s-06) den remy took da mic now nicki is shining lik remy sed yall she hold each otha up not tear each otha down yew look mad weak point blank…download floppd…dancing wit the stars floppd…ur surgeries flop jus sit ya old ass down eitha b blessd and happy our die n b wit BIGGIE fo real… ungrateful bitch atlantic records dnt want u to hav a album fo a reason dey’ll lose money cuz it’ll flop lik erythan u touch afta 2006 jus go bac to jail tak remy place so hip hop can get bac to it..
she is right about the situation….nicki is wrong but alot of her fans won’t see that….its obvious she is a fan of kim i listened to all her mix tapes…..and i have all of lil kims albums….lil kim is a nice person and she never disrespects her fans…i can’t say the same for nicki…she has dissed her fan….ps….i love em both
WTF ol bitch sit yo ass all the way down kim keeps speaking Nicki’s name giving her free publicity while Nic is saying nothing, grindin working hard not feeding into the bullsh!t. Aint many female rappers so they would want to stick together instead of tearing each other down.
1.) The song is on birdman’s album . It’s on his deluxe edition . Kim needs to check the facts .
2.) If nicki has been taking subliminal shots at you (which i really doubt), dont pay no mind to it . You bigger than that . Or I thought you were .
3.) Nicki has said she was inspired by you NUMEROUS TIMES IN INTERVIEWS . And you dont demand someone pay homage to you . Should all new female rappers pay homage to you ? It’s ok that you invented the ish let it go and rise above it . Kim i love you and Nicki but you better than this .
ALL OF U HATER,F*** YOU, that lil b**** copying kim and you can see that,she got no style just copy copy and copy,would you be happy to see a new comer just copying what u done for the past 10 years? no b**** can f*** the rap music as kim does, u know that and we all know, f****nikki and that F****ing n***, SHE IS THE MJ OF RAP,SHE IS THE BEST EVER FEMELA MC AND THAT QUEEN B****
KIM JALOUS OF WHAT? A MIXTAPE,A VIDEO AND SOME PERFORMANCES? THIS IS WHY SHE IS JALOUS? GUYZ PLZ, WE ALL SAW NIKKI TAKING KIM STYLE RIGHT,BE HONEST YES OR NOT? CAN YOU LET SOMEONE JUST COPING YOU LIKE THAT,WULD U B HAPPY TO SEE THAT? BACK OF FAKE BARBIE,THERE IS ONLY ONE QUEEN IN THE GAME: KIM. and take ur A** H*** WITH U
before hearing this interview i was pissed that lil kim, outta no where started dissing nicki. her “nicki needs to pay homage” excuse was stupid. and it became obvious she was hating once she brought out keys. kim came off as a jealous hater looking for some attention.
now after hearing this interview, she actually makes sense. think about it, if there was no lil kim, what would nicki minaj be? i’m not saying that nicki ripped everything off kim cuz she didn’t. there’s a difference between being inspired by someone elses idea and adding your own spin on it or straight out copying what they did.
i think the real reason why kim is mad is because all the attention is on nicki. and she feels like nicki took over her spot in the business without really proving herself 1st.
the reason why nicki is on top is because she’s the ONLY female rapper that’s hungry for it right now, its NOT because she’s the best. some of her verses don’t even make sense. her 1st single, Massive Attack was a flop. she’s basically riding off a buzz created by her mixtapes, the songs she’s been featured on, lil wayne, and everyone else who keeps hyping her up. i think people force themselves to like her cuz shes what’s hot right now. people are tired of seeing the same artists always on top and nicki is like a breath of fresh air. girls are missing that representation in hip hop. its like you almost forget that women can rap just as good as a man. and nicki is the only one representing right now.
so kim really needs to stop talking and put all that energy into making her comeback album that proves she still got it.
and nicki needs to focus on making an album that proves she deserves to be the top bitch right now. to prove she’s just not another hype in a cute outfit. to certify herself as a top contender not just a gimmick in the game.
i think its time the ladies join together and show the world that men aren’t the only ones who can spit some lines. like kim said, she just wants to rock out together.
am i the only one who thinks a lil kim + nicki minaj collabo would be classic?
I Love Lil Kim and she`s a great Rapper but, dis is da reason why we have a shortage of Female Rapper`s. Pulling one another down instead of lifting each other up. I think Kim is jealous because someone from New York is gettin it in (Female). Nicki is doing her thing right now leave her alone. I feel like if Queen Latifah,MC Lyte,Salt & Peppa don`t have a problem u shouldn`t either. Eve,Trina,RemyMa are great rappers they`re not complaning. Now ur going as far as putting 50 in it that`s 2 far Lil Kim. You know 50 don`t care about nobody not even you. Don`t stoop that low. WTF is up with dis Keyes chick now she really is jealous talking about she`s going 2 keep talking about Nicki until she`s tired. Get a LIFE what has Nicki ever done 2 u 2 kim nothing but, getting her grind on don`t knock da hustle baby. Quit HATING !!!!
Funny cause Nicki Minaj sounds nothing like lil kim nor talks about the same things as Lil Kim. Nicki Minaj is much better at wordplay than Kim. Lil Kim was only hot in the 90s and early 2000′s then she became washed up. Nicki is gonna have longevity unlike kim. Yeah and Atlantic records didnt get the direction u were going in cause she changed FOR THE WORSE. They didnt care about your ass anymore. U werent even selling records anymore.
its so crazy cuz this is completely outta no where. we all kno nicki dun paid her “homage” even tho she didn’t have to cuz if u got a talent like nicki then u dont have to pay homage no body but god. she ain have to thank kim for shit, but she did. i think kim is tryin to make an album and she need publicity. we all kno this is the only way she can get it. notice treding searches are “NICKI AND KIM BEEF” not “LIL KIM NEW MUSIC”….kim cant hang.
This is why my fav. female rappers are Missy Elliot, Trina, Eve, and Nicki minaj. Ladies who understand the importance of lifting each other up to succeed in order to keep the genre alive and successful. These ladies dont waste time calling each other out, instead theyre selling records, make huge fts on songs and bein successful.
The only lil kim record I ever hear nowadays (once in a while) is how many licks. I like(d) LiL Kim but to come at the new generation like that? Thats like Janet comin at ciara, madonna comin at gaga, or michael comin at usher. LiL Kim was Queen for maybe a year or two, but as far as Im considered your BIG when your mainstream, the streets will get you nowhere.
team KIM. i like Nicki as well. but it’s not even about taking sides. Kim in this interview was just speaking the truth. as someone who works in this industry and a lot of the artists, you realize that a lot of these people are out for self and there’s no loyalty. it’s all greed and kim was clearly speaking up for herself. like she said, she could’ve spoken about it sooner in nicki’s rise to fame, but she waited, tried to be cool, that didn’t work, so now she’s calling her out on that shit. it’s simple. it’s about respect. where’s the loyalty? regardless of where kim is today, she’s clearly paved the way for nicki. it’s not about being number one cause everyone knows that Lauryn Hill is the epitome of female hip-hop. it’s about acknowledgment. respect. and kim felt disrespected. so now she’s calling her out. it’s the industry. you finally have to speak your mind.
The only problem i have with the things she said is when she said “50 Cent is in a different league & Rick Ross will never be on 50′s level”… And what level is that Kim? the level of having a debut album was a street success as much as it was a commercial success, then having the rest of your albums perform badly… If anything, 50 has shown that he cant compete with the likes of Rick Ross, hell he cant even compete with Soulja Boy because nobody is buying his gimmicks of starting beef with rappers for silly reasons to promote record sells, & no one is feeling him in this day in age… So really, her diss to Rick Ross was more of praise, becasue she was right. Rick Ross will NEVER be on 50′s level & that’s a good thing!
“wat she want nicki to say shout out to kim everytime she get on an interview llz fuck wrong wit ha” BUTKIM KEPT THROWIN SHOOTs first wen she said “THERE NEVA BE ANOTHER ME WAT YU OUT YOMIND” In grindin gettin moneyman she washed up n jus sad old ass bitch off track like bad weaves llz
oh common guys..if kim is a queen she wouldn’t talkin shit like these…
she is good singer,but this what she’s talkin is really stupid …
it sounds like she is jealous…But u see ? Nicki is real DIVA,so she don’t care,and she don’t comment things like these ..
Kim is acting like a kid…
OMG WTF THIS IS MAKING ME MAD READING THESE COMMENTS…THE SAME BITCHES TALKIN SHIT ABOUT LIL KIM IS THE SAM BITCHES DAT BE BUMPIN HER SHIT AND TRYIN 2 BE LIKE HER. DAMN SHE IS ENTITLED 2 HER OPINION ON THINGS WHETHER OR NOT ITS WRONG OR RIGHT SOBEIT. CAUSE IN THE END THEY WILL BE FRIENDS MAKIN MUSIC N LAUGHIN ABOUT THIS STUPID SHIT THEY BEEFIN OVER NOW…MY OPINION THO NICKI WILL NEVER BE ABLE 2 TOP LIL KIM BUT SHE COULD BE THE NEXT NEST THING 2 IT!

PERIOD! STILL GOT A LONG WAY TO GO BEFORE SHE EVEN START TO CATCH UP….KARMA IS SOMETHING ELSE GETTING KICKED OFF OF TOURS SUED FOR LAMBOS! WHAT? OH, DIDN’T THINK SO. KIM ALL DAY!
*Nicki hasn’t made not shots at Kim or anyone else rly, she’s cool with Trina, Eve, & all them, Kim’s the only 1 with a problem when Nicki said or did nothing to her
*No one cares abt her affiliations w/ baby or slim
*All drake said is he don’t care what Kim or anyone else says, & some real ish. He did not diss Kim, he stated he respected her as a veteran in the game, but stated his opinion on her actions. And she did say stuff abt Nicki, not just willie boy.
*Diddy is kinda crazy to compare Ross to Biggie, but who cares? And what does 50 Cent have to do with anything.
In conclusion: This b!tch just wanted some attention cause her careers over, case dismissed
Damn there are some true haters in this thread! Did I not just listen to the same 3 interviews that you all just did? Kim never said she was the first Lady in Hip-Hop nowhere during the interview! She stated that Nicki Minaj needs to pay homage to those that came before her. (and I agree) Must I remind you all that ROXANNE SHANTE’ was the first female in Hip-Hop to get out on stage in high heels and rock Gucci? I heard Nicki Minaj in an early interview once say that she looked up to Lil Kim and loved her. But after Nicki got big she just kept copying Lil’ Kim’s style and then never gave props to her ever again. Then Nicki grew as an artist and placed a little spin her on her image, once folks started asking her to get her own style, because she was deep in Lil’ Kim’s twat. Nicki is great I like her flow and pun on words. I love Lil Kim, and have been down with her since Junior Mafia. When it comes down to it though, it’s all about respect. If you are going to idolize someone and bite their style… at least give them credit, props, homage and recognition. Fore they are the originator! That’s like printing up a t-shirt and airbrushing a swoosh on it with the phrase “Just Be It” on it without thinking you should give some credit to Nike for coming up with the concept first. Right is Right and Wrong is Wrong. In the end you all know Kim would eat her lunch. It’s better to be Kim’s friend, make money with her, show unity and respect in hip-hop, and just be civil. Than to get your ass sued for copyright infringement. I wish Lil’ Kim would have put a patent on her whole style. That way Nicki would be broke right now after paying her royalties for copying her so much! Like I said I love them both. I just wish we as people of color could show the world that we can get along with each other and help build our community up! Together we stand. Divided we fall. (Which is what they want)
omg i hate when people say if there was no kim where would nicki be SHE IS NOT THE FIRST RAP BITCH IN THE GAME nicki even said she loves kim she look up to kim but DAM kim act like nicki the only girl where.n colorful wiggs like kim you lookin real dumb and for you to call biggy’s mom a bitch your the BITCH lik man and this bitch aint near real nor classy if she was what her mind has her thinkin she is she would of camme to nicki when she thought she was takin shots at her thats what a real bitch do like kim your trash to me now i use to love you yo music nd all i like nicki too but you got some growin up to do you just a clown ass bitch for this man
I just think Nicki needs to be her own person. All that Barbie stuff is old. Even before Kim did this interview, I thought it was nothing different about her or different that I’ve seen. She really reminded me of Kim when she came out.
Eventhough Kim wasn’t the first female rapper, but it’s obvious that Nicki has similar style to her. I don’t know if it was intentional, but it’s nothing fresh. She needs to do something to differentiate herself from all of this.
If I’m not mistaken, Rihanna had similar experience. She was always compared to her peers or the other R&B girls;Because they all had the same look. long hair, parted in the middle or as I call it the Tyra Banks look. Rihanna had to do a total transformation with her hair and clothing to set herself apart from the others. So now it doesn’t look like she’s coping cassie/beyonce.She’s doing her own thing and people are no longer comparing her to the others. Instead they are now coping her style.
I think Nicki is very talented and she needs to change her style, so she can’t be compare with Kim.I’m positively sure she’s going to do that in the future, if she’s a smart girl and in control of her career.
Wow….this is crazy!! First of all, Lil Kim had her time to shine, and still can. Nicki said that she looked up to Kim, what more do she need to say? I like little Kim, but she should have had her ass in the studio making some new music, then maybe Nicki little ass wouldn’t be the shit right now. No one need to pay you homage everytime they do an interview Kim…… Get it together…. Love you Queen B
well hip hop is dead anyway lol, i’m sick of this barbie BS lol, nicki is wack ass hell lol, she cant rap, only kids and punks play her music lol, She needs to come up with her own style, she needs to stop copying Kim. Anyway Kim will always be queen bee and thats at. Anyone who is real know that nicki is copying kim lol!
I have to agree, what would Nicki Minaj persona be if there was no lil kim. In all truths, how would you react if someone took your style? May be, you would have a different response then kim. While others would not like it because they see others praising the person like she invented, like she is original.She is mad because people are acting like Nicki Minaj invented this whole persona- pertaining to Nicki’s appearance. However, in the beggining Nicki was lil kim clone- lyric wise, but now only thing she sharing now with kim is the wigs and shit. But, shit just say you got the ideas of wigs, clothes, and poses from kim.
Fact wil alwez remain tht kim is the queen and minaj juz copied wat kims done in all her career,its like planting and watering a mango tree evriday then smeone juz comes and steals then sells all of them,the people will appreciate the thief(minaj) and the one who did the real shit(kim) will obviously be mad,yal mathafukaz who r rooting for minaj r the new generation:minaj is childish and her rap is pointless,worst of all,she is wth em yung money bitchez!i leave u wth tupacs wordz YAL MATHAFUKAZ,FUK U 2!!!!
