Lil' Kim Distances Herself From Remy Ma-Nicki Minaj Feud

  /  02.28.2017

It’s been six years since Lil’ Kim released her Nicki Minaj diss mixtape Black Friday, but she’s not looking to reignite the feud anytime soon. In the wake of Remy Ma’s beef with Nicki, the Queen Bee was asked about her longtime foe, who she refers to as “ol’ girl.”

“We all know the situation that’s going on with Remy and ol’ girl,” Kim told Billboard. “That’s their situation and I have nothing to do with that.”

As for whether she is collaborating with Remy on a Nicki diss track, the answer is no. “They have a rumor out there like, ‘Kim is gonna do a diss track with Remy,'” she added. “First of all, let me tell you this. Number one: y’all giving ol’ girl too much credit. I’m not even thinking about that. I’m not even thinking about ol’ girl! I’m so far past that. That’s never on my mind. Ever. Ol’ girl has never been on my mind for a long ass time at all. So I hate the fact of that being in the equation.”

She continued, noting that there’s really no need to get involved with Remy, who’s proven she can handle her own. “After hearing ‘shETHER,’ that shit is so hard,” she said. “Remy don’t need no damn help! Why would I need to come together for that? I mean, I’m into the music and I’m speaking musically wise — the song is just hard, period. Just like [Drake’s] ‘Back to Back’ was hard — just good hip-hop music. But I got nothing to do with that.”

However, this doesn’t mean Kim isn’t ready for war. “When I had my situation and my situation came up, I handled my business,” she said. “If anybody comes to me, if ol’ girl came to me, I’ma give them the business. That’s just the bottom line of it. So if it ain’t coming my way, I ain’t got nothing to do with it. Me and Remy is cool. I hate when media do that. That’s the thing.”

Currently independent, Lil’ Kim says she’s got a “fun” and personal album coming out at some point this year. See more highlights from her Q&A below.

On ‘Ladies Night’: “I’m a hustler first. The ‘Ladies Night’ record got me a Grammy nomination and several MTV [award] nominations, and we performed the song on MTV during one of the biggest awards moments and my album went double platinum. At the end of the day, I want another one of those. I ain’t thinking about no other bullshit, because like I said, this ain’t what you want when it comes to that because I’m an extremist.”

On Female Unity: “I would like to have something like that on my new album. Even if I just did records separately with different females, it’s still the unity. I was looking at the footage of me, Cardi, and Remy all up there on that stage, and everybody did they thing, everybody held they own. I’m also in the business side of things. I also stepped my game up from when I was a kid in the game and I was not really business-minded. I just was told what to do, so now I’m putting business moves together.”

On her own Nicki Minaj feud: “Plus, I already handled my business. Everybody else already know, I already put it down. Once that situation came at me, I addressed the person. Like I said, that’s done and over with and they know what it is. That person knows what it is.”
