So if anyone wanted any confirmation on whether Romans Revenge (the single of her upcoming album Pink Friday) was a shot at Brooklyn rapper Lil Kim, well Nicki Minaj FINALLY cleared that up. She also addressed the whole feud in general and how this thing manifested. This is the first time Nicki spoke out publicly about the beef and I have to say, it was a REVEALING interview!
For those wanting to know whether Romans Revenge was about Brooklyn rapper and Notorious B.I.G protege Lil Kim, the answer is YES! In one of her most HONEST interviews, Queens rapper Nicki Minaj finally confirmed that Romans Revenge was a shot at Lil Kim. It was during her NYC HOT 97 VIP Lounge event to promote her upcoming album Pink Friday that Nicki got some things off her chest about the ongoing beef with Kim.
Talking to NYC HOT 97 DJ Angie Martinez, she explained how Kim “jumped out the window” and warned how you should choose your battles. One of the first things I found revealing about this interview was a conversation Nicki had with Brooklyn rapper Foxy Brown asking why she was giving props to Kim after she constantly disses her? Now part of me is wondering (why is this bitch instigating) but we all know Foxy never liked Kim anyway!
I have to say that Nicki made some good points on the beef situation between the two. The one that stood out in my mind THE MOST was when she said
“it wasn’t Nicki Minaj (referencing herself) it could’ve been any girl that was poppin.” Further saying “She picked a fight with Foxy, then she picked a fight with Eve, then she picked a fight with Remy, then it was Ms. Wallace, then it was Nicky Minaj.” “Every time you in the news it’s because you gettin at somebody. Where’s your music? Put your music out and when I see your name on Billboard, I’ll respond to you.”
DID SHE JUST BODY LIL KIM FOR A SECOND TIME? Look, I like and appreciate Lil Kim, but why do I feel like she’s an old person playing a juvenile game? When we further exam Kim’s career, her biggest album was Hard Core which was credited to B.I.G. In addition, during the 90’s she wasn’t even THE BEST FEMALE RAPPER!!! Lauryn Hill held that title in my opinion. The BIGGEST notch on her belt was serving a prison sentence for NOT SNITCHING which earned her an enormous amount of street credit. But this however is in no relation to her music.
My thoughts are, if Kim feels disrespected, then go to the studio and put out some heat. Use this situation to your advantage and hopefully it will bring the best out of you like Jay brought the best out of Nas with Ether! Other than that, the radio interviews and on stage disses begins to get a little corny and childish, and Lil Kim YOUR TOO GROWN FOR CHILDISH THINGS!!!
