Lil’ Kim Sounds Off on Nicki Minaj, K. Michelle on ‘The Breakfast Club’

Lil' Kim

“The Breakfast Club” was all abuzz when Lil’ Kim returned to the show on Monday for the first time since becoming a mom. But motherhood hasn’t made her any less hard core.

During the nearly hour-long interview, the Queen Bee talked about her “fantastic, gorgeous, beautiful” daughter Royal Reign and her relationship with the Notorious B.I.G. When asked about a possible Junior M.A.F.I.A. reunion, she laughed.

Kim recently had a fallout with K. Michelle and denied that the “Love & Hip Hop” star is the godmother of her daughter.

Of course, Charlamagne asked about her rival Nicki Minaj. Kim blames Nicki for reigniting the beef with her verse on Beyoncé’s “Flawless,” on which Nicki raps, “The queen of rap slaying with Queen Bey.”

“She took the first shots. It’s always been like that,” said Kim. “She’s been throwing shots and still throwing shots.”

Kim is working on a collaboration with Iggy Azalea and T.I. and has recorded a verse for Miley Cyrus. “I love her. That’s my baby,” she said of the pop star.

Kim’s manager Big Fendi, who was instrumental in Nicki’s career, also chimed in, calling Nicki a “groupie” and called Nicki’s right-hand man Safaree “the little gay guy.”

“Nicki offered me $15k for starting her career,” said Fendi.

Plus, hear what she had to say about Diddy, her ex-boyfriend Maino, and her new album, which she plans to drop at the end of 2014 or in early 2015.
