Nicki Minaj Gives Props to Lil’ Kim, Foxy Brown, and Remy Ma

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj has opened new doors for female rappers, but who did she look up to? During her visit to Hot 97, Young Money’s First Lady shared her favorite femcees.

Her short list includes Foxy Brown, Lauryn Hill, Remy Ma, and even her rival Lil’ Kim. “When Remy came out, I was very, very excited about her,” the Queens-bred MC told Peter Rosenberg. “With Foxy, Kim, and Remy, they were all from New York too, but it’s no disrespect to any other female rappers, but those are the ones that I felt like, ‘Yeah, I could get into that.’”

She was able to relate to them. “They sounded like me when I spoke. I just thought they made an impact.”

Nicki also gave props to Missy Elliott and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. “I always loved Missy ’cause she was playful and I always said, Missy and Left Eye, they weren’t afraid to be goofy at times and I loved that as well.”

She is currently filming The Other Woman with Cameron Diaz in New York and is working on her third album, which will mark a return to her hip-hop roots. “I’ve just been getting back to that place where I was right before I dropped my first album, which is kill everything,” she said.

    @kwayzee,

    Im glad she gave Missy some props.. because Nicki is definitely a character with the different flows as Missy is. Very cool!

    I think a Nicki/Missy collabo would be real solid. Nicki fans have been asking Missy for the longest if she would work with Nicki (to which she said “Im ready if she is”)
    But as fans you should also ask Nicki or show her that its a collaboration that you want. Female unity is definitely important! Would be a tight collaboration!

    Please hon get it together. The Female OG’s have given Nicki her props.. YOUR comments are invalid

    Champion Sound Reply:

    @TheTruthSorry, THEY opened doors for HER. Then she walked through and slammed it shut. Nicki Minaj is the reason that people think there can only be one female rapper at a time. Running around talking about “its my time now” making her barbz hate on everyone. Never before in history has that been the case.

    WELL Reply:

    @Jay,

    You cant give “props” and then insult someone and expect anybody to be happy about it.
    Nobody likes a backhanded compliment.

    I dont think its entirely Nickis fault (like the delusional Kim fans).. but I also dont think shes an angel (like the delusional Nicki fans)

    Its takes TWO to tango! However, I applaud her for extending an olive branch. Regardless of how Kim is acting.. she should continue with this positive attitude and if Kim continues with her negative attitude .. then it would surely speak volumes!

    She always gave props but she always shaded too. “She tryna be like Little Kim.” Those are Nicki’s lyrics. She was mocking her haters. Don’t front, keep it one hundred. Y’all caught the Kim shade too. Back when Nick was doing mixtapes, she said she wanted to fill Kim’s shoes. What did she do? Tribute Kim’s famous photo and didn’t she get some more attention after? Exactly. Again, Nicki admitted that. So don’t front. There wouldn’t be a Nicki Minaj if it wasn’t for Kim, Remy, etc. Nicki’s been holding things down but y’all always act like she’s God. NO.

    JustCoastWitHa Reply:

    @……, Your absolutely right but you act like we’re supposed to PRAISE Kim forever for opening the ‘Sex Symbol’ door for Female rap. After all.. thats all she’s really done. Yes her bars were lethal(even tho BIGGIE wrote the shits), yes she was a OVA fashionista, and YESSS she held her own with the guys. But wtf lol Kim wants to still claim Queen with no new CHARTING music. I don’t see it

    [Reply]

    Welp Reply:

    @JustCoastWitHa, No its about RESPECT. U cant expect us Kim fans to give Nicki respect and yall want to denounce what Kim has done and vice versa. Now Nicki is doing her thing for this generation. but lets not take away anything from Lil Kim or the rest of the girls who came up with Kim which includes Foxy Brown, Missy Elliott, Eve, Da Brat, Lauryn Hill, Left Eye, and a host of others. Because in 2018 or 2020 yall going to want people to give Nicki her props if she is still around and may be arguing with whoever the new female rapper is of that time about Nicki’s success the way we are now. RESPECT IS ALL IT TAKES.

    @JustCoastWitHa, Queen is an icon. Like in rock and pop. Mike and Elvis are dead but they’ll always be the Kings of their genre. Madonna is still queen even tho lady gaga is currently destroying her. Why can’t Kim claim the same. Especially if 80 percent of the successful female rappers that came Kim after her patterned themselves after her and still do

Lil Kim is still alive NOT making charting music. Number 2. Now, the Madonna and Lady Gaga analogy is a little better to compare this situation to. Even tho Gaga is “Killing” Madonna, everytime MDNA makes a comeback..she charts, and SELLS!!!!!! Can we say the same for Lil Kim? Unfortunately not. To answer your last question.. BECAUSE NICKI MINAJ writes her own bars for starters has surpassed anything Lil Kim has done in just THREE SHORT YEARS.

    P.R 101. Kim didnt take the BAIT. Nicki needs Hot 97 4 street Cred, Hot 97 needs Nicki 4 Listeners. Nicki pulled this same stunt with foxy… Propped her up 4 that Pepsi concert, had her looking shot out & ashy, then through her off stage. If nicki wanted a truce, she should’ve reached out privately like Kim did with diddy, eve, & lyte. Kim don’t do P.R PHOTO-OPS’

    @Edubb, ummmm no…Nicki isn’t tryna be Kim’s friend…she actually has a relationship with Foxy…she just been over the beef…Kim still wants the beef so she can have sumn…and she still isn’t over it cuz she RT’d ppl saying Nicki doesn’t mean what she says

    so she wants Nicki to give her props and when she does, she doesn’t like it

    [Reply]

    Welp Reply:

    @Trev, Kim just dont feel like her giving props was genuine. It doesnt mean that she still has beef with her. She just dont deal with Nicki. Yall be reading too deep into it. And if I was Lil Kim I would question the sincerity behind it too because in the past when Nicki gave Kim props she always had some released music from a mixtape, one of her singles, or a single she was featured on with another artist where she was indirectly taking jabs at Kim. So I can honestly feel where Kim is coming from. Maybe Kim is feeling like okay let me see how foreal she really is… if we hear a song that Nicki is on in the upcoming weeks or months where she is jabbing.. then we will all know Nicki’s proclamation of love was not sincere.

    @Welp, jabs at Kim my ass! Did she rapped “f*ck Kim, she’s a has-been”? NO! Egocentric Kim said that she was taking jabs at her so people would believe that Nicki had something against her. Ok, she said “old b!tches”, did Eve, Missy, Foxy, Remy, etc. responded to her? NO.

    @Welp, Tbh Nicki didn’t give her props. All she said was that’s who she grew up listening to. Which has a 99% chance of being true. They weren’t beefing all her life. lol you’re reading to deep into it as well..

    I wish she threw Eve’s name in there as well because Eve has been saying nothing but nice things about her in all of her interviews. But it’s nice to see that she is actually showing love and named off a few. It’s sad that female rappers don’t do more records together.

    There are videos out there where Nicki has BEEN naming Kim as one of her favorites dating back to 2007. So what’s so different this time? And Lil’ Kim’s delusional ass got so excited she must’ve thought Nicki said she wanted to work with her. NO! You’re too wack to get up on one of Nicki’s songs. Had the nerve to re-tweet her delusional ass fans negative tweets about Nicki but Kim knows damn well if Nicki asked her to do a song for FREE she would break a damn leg tryna get to the studio.

While u bringing up years and shit… if HISTORY is ANY indicator of Nicki’s props then we can all expect a lil sly jab at Lil Kim’s direction in one of her featured collaborations really soon. Kim also stated during the time when the beef first started that she would work with Nicki for a fee but not for free. I think a PRIVATE face to face or phone call between Kim and Nicki will settle shit not some public statement cus u never know if it’s just gas or if it’s foreal.

    I would REALLY want to see Nicki & Missy collab, they both go outside the box with their flow and I think it would be a new different sound and would be a really dope song.

    I think Nicki and Foxy will eventually collab since they are friends.

    I hope Nicki and Remy will collab when Remy gets out of jail, because I know they were cool with each other and Remy gave Nicki her props and said she was holding down the female rap game. So I could see them doing a collab.

    Nicki really does respect Kim, but Kim is a little bitter old lady and always thinks someone is against her. Which is why she hasen’t even made up with Foxy yet(which will NEVER happen). There are PLENTY of old videos before Nicki got famous of when she shouted out Kim all the time and said she loved her! If Kim didn’t see that, then that’s her problem and she needs to get over it and stop acting like a little bitter bitch.

    Nicki I love you VERY much! you are holding it down for the female rappers, and you go hard on everything you do. You have become the most successful female rapper of all time, and I’m very proud of you! Love you Nicki♥

    Vivian Reply:

    @►♫Brandon_B♫►, First off the reason why Kim has not made peace with FOXY BROWN is because back in 2009 when the beef had settled a song surfaced from FOXY called OFF THE MUSCLE where she dissed Kim for dancing with the stars. And then in recent times you can find countless videos on youtube of Foxy dissing Lil Kim on stage. So THAT IS WHY KIM WONT MAKE UP WITH FOXY because JUST LIKE NICKI she will show love and then turn around and bite you in the back.

    As for Kim and Nicki… Nicki showed love to Kim true we all know that… Nicki however would throw jabs at Kim on mixtapes and on featured singles, not to mention the behind the scenes stuff that was taking place between Lil Kim and the whole YMCB camp. People always want to paint Lil Kim to be disgruntled and bitter or a bully just because she wont sit down at the dinner table and make peace with those who have hurt her. And ppl always wanna get mad when Kim RESPONDS to ppl coming at her wrong but NEVER EVER say anything to the person antagonizing her.

    I admit Kim can hold a grudge for years she still aint made up with Lil Cease… bu do u know why? Because just like Nicki and Foxy Brown.. he gets his ass on twitter and disses Lil Kim but claims to “LOVE” her. Thats not GENUINE LOVE. AND THAT IS WHY KIM DONT DEAL WITH CERTAIN PPL! ONCE U ALL UNDERSTAND HOW KIM OPERATES U WILL UNDERSTAND SHIT BETTER.

    @PRINCE OF POP, “Tell that bitch with the crown to run it like Chris Brown”, “I’m coming for the crown Kim, that’s the word”, “How the FUCK you in the game like 10 years strong, yall bitches still can’t write your own damn songs?”, “Time machine bitches always talkin bout the old days”…exactly what do you call those? Even if they weren’t directed solely towards Kim they were also directed at the other female rap veterans. It’s just plain disrespectful. There was no need for it.

    @Stan4QB, no its not disrespectful is HIP HOP its a competitive sport… if there was as many relavant female MCs like there were male then nobody would say nothing… thats sad tho… Like i said directed to all the lazy A$$ female rappers… and she got half if not all of them off there A$$ to go for a run at it again… lol first off the crown thing… Remy took that personal… she was stating she was the “Queen of NY” and she took it as nicki was coming for her at the time being that nicki rapped over remys beat… with that being said she still took it playful and not disrespectfull at all… Any bit$% wit that crown wearing it not holding down the rap game like the KING (JAYZ) was deserved some new chick coming for it… Run that $hit BitC$ chill… And dammmm they still cant write they own songs… thank you a female rapper writing and slaying the dyin genre… allowing them to wake up… and dont take it personal just get up and work… ekkk

    Naming someone as a favorite female rapper should not be confused with “omg, im so sorry for our beef, lets do lunch and be best friends forever”

    Kim is BITTER. She always goes in interviews and talk bad about Nicki. Nicki doesn’t say anything bad about Kim in interviews. She doesn’t try to make Kim look bad in the media. If she felt Nicki was dissing her through her music she should have took shots back through her music, obviously she got called out for a RAP BATTLE. Kim had their beef get too personal. Nic always said she dont feed in to beef, that’s why she never discusses what happened between them. Kim got called out to a rap battle and she took it too the media. These male rappers on YouTube talk the most mess about each other and shake hands after. That’s how nicki looks at it. It’s called the rap game for a reason. It’s all a game, yes competitive but still don’t take disses to the heart all rappers should know that.

    @PRINCE OF POP, Drake on It’s Good Carter IV 2011 “Mind in one place heart in another
    Please pardon my brother, he’s just angry at you niggas Who dont have your heart in your rap shit and got too fuckin comfy” clearly talking about Jay (based on assumption) fast forward to 2013. Him and Jay talking about be very afraid of the music we got coming out together. So, it’s a sport. Jay had shots for Wayne and Wayne had shots for Jay too but Wayne gave props to Jay recently. Like they always say IT’S A SPORT. But females see it differently.

    And far as female unity in the rap game. Fuck that shit! I feel nicki 100%. female rap was dead before Nicki hit the scene. Before Nic it’s was a 8 year gap between a female rapper going plat.

    When Nicki hit the scene she shouted out everybody. Kim, missy, eve, foxy, remy, salt and pepa, I mean EVERYBODY! And thanked them for opening doors.

    But she doesn’t need to unite with them at all. She put them back on the map. & NONE thanked Nic for re-opening the doors for, but iggy! Iggy the only one. Like why should it hurt them so had to say “Nic I thank you for opening the doors back for us” Nicki always thanked them and shouted them hoes.

    They’ll never thank her for opening doors. But they ain’t even thank Jesus when he died on a cross. Cause their spirits is UNGREATFUL bitches is so HATEFUL, she remain a staple. Her career has been the PINKPRINT. When she retire tell them THINKPINK. PINK FRIDAY is the imprint.

    @TheTruthSorry, THATS A BOLD FACED LIE. Its amazing how Nicki Minaj fans NEVER ACKNOWLEDGE when ppl have given her props. Missy, Eve, Iggy, Trina, Remy, Shawnna, Rasheeda, Diamond, Brianna Perry, LoLa Monroe, and counteless other female emcees have said shout out to Nicki and that she is doing her thing. But YALL NEVER PAY ATTENTION TO THAT because yall are so caught up in trying to be this elitist stan group. Nicki gets a lot of love and not just form Iggy. U can go on youtube and see many upcoming female emcees give Nicki props whenever they get asked about her. The problem I feel is that Nicki and her fans just like making people look small and want to belittle people just because she is doing well for herself.

    @Vivian, I stan for NICKI but I also really love hearing females rap so I don’t really care about that extra stuff. But i’ll say YES some girls did show love and SOME didn’t. They agreed that YES she was doing her thing which is a fact. But, you would hear little jabs to her on some records by some of the other female rappers too. “Your music make me sicki” – Eve, “Got the body everybody tryna come in and copy But they all get bodied for tryna become a copy” – Lola Monroe and there’s more but when Nicki was talking her sh*t on records she was RESPONDING to these little comments.

    @Vivian, what doors did nicki open? i just wanna know. cuz nobody was “out” for a few years and Nicki hits the scene and goes platinum, that means she opened doors for female rappers???? FAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWKKKKKKK NO!! And yall Nicki stans need to stfu, seriously. it’s getting ridiculous now, yall want Nicki to get props for something she did not do…But yet when it comes to Kim no Barb will say yes Kim did the damn thing. She opened the doors for females in hip hop..hands down. she rapped about shyt females were afraid to talk about. She started the sexy rap shyt, kim’s a trendsetter…and she was definitely ahead of her time. she made it so that women were able to wear sexy shyt while rapping at the same time..but no one ever acknowledge’s Kim for that at all. And don’t get me started on her many accomplishments throughout her career, cuz her discography will shyt on everything Nicki has done. And one of Kim’s legendary bars will shyt on everything Nicki has done combined. So before yall barbs get to running off at the mouth, do your homework, cuz KIM solidified this game.

    @msteefromdc, shut up you sound so dumb didn’t even feel like reading that restarted shit. Nicki opened doors for them. Barbs to admit Kim opened doors for female rappers, and nicki admit also. THAT’S WHY SHE THANKED ALL THE FEMALE RAPPERS BEFORE HER WHO OPENED DOORS. But now it’s Nicki time; so just like Nicki thanked all them for opening doors, every female rapper after her must thank her. Till the she won’t COLLAB with them and they will stay NON-existent.

But all honesty they can’t we all seen Nicki started, bitch started from the gutter and hit them with that cross appeal. These hitches come from the subburbs acting like they tuff GTFOH

    Y’all don’t get it Nicki success on her first album was largely due to her urban fan base so now that those other pink Friday were an embarrassment to hip hop n not many suburban kids purchased it either she wants to return to urban areas weather she had to call a truce or reuse the beef Kim fans is what Nicki wants.. no matter if y’all believe it or not Kim is her key to the hood. When Kim dropped black Friday the hood said fuck Nicki she fake n phony. Y’all think black Friday was about pay pals sales n it wasn’t it was to take away any street or hood credibility Nicki had. Yes Kim successfully snatched nicki ‘s hood card but her fans where too busy listening to starships. Therefore is Nicki can’t successfully cross back over to her urban fan base her days in hip hop are numbered! Y’all want to underestimate Kim but her street smarts have brought her a mighty long way she’s will allows survive off the impact she made in hip hop! When y’all

  36. The Shaded Truth

    There’s two sides to this. On one hand we can say that Nicki really liked Kim, which she did, and she’s restating just because its true, which it is, but also she knows it has the potential to smooth any rough patches concerning her weak hip-hop image. Shes trying to revamp… i.e. the make-under. She understands that Kim most likely has the ‘hood’ and 25+ fan-base. She knows that and revealing that her next album is a rap/hip-hop album in the same sit down conversation is a crucial piece of her continuing success. No matter what anybody says Kim is on a roll, shes everywhere and always in the spotlight, with no music but because of her longevity she has that ability. It could be calculating marketing always is…

    People keep saying Nicki is returning to hip hop because her pop didn’t do well …however, Roman Reloaded was the highest selling album of 2012. Her pop songs slayed with sales. If you pay attention to her old interviews she always said she was going to do this. Rap. Pop. Then back to rap. Every thing she is doing she spoke about YEARS ago.

  38. Educated Hip Hop Fan

    Nicki is smart. By patching things up with Hot 97 on Hot 97, she’s re-establishing rapport with her core hip hop fans. By giving props to Lil Kim, she is cutting off Kim’s last claim to relevance (her beef with Nicki Minaj) and putting Kim in the same category as Missy, Eve, Foxy…women from a bygone era who now have trouble making any impact on the charts.
