Foxy Brown Praises Nicki Minaj

Published August 12, 2010

Nicki Minaj's femcee foes and her legion of fans have seemingly been growing at the same rate this past year.

Khia, Lil Mama and underground rapper Keys are just a few of the MCs who have jabbed at the Harajuku Barbie for various reasons, but where does Foxy Brown stand? Recently, Lil' Kim put a bullseye on Minaj's head— complaining that Young Money's first lady needs to pay homage to her. Kim later revealed that her resentment for Minaj dates back to the two recording "Grindin' Making Money" together. To let the Queen Bee tell it, Cash Money CEO Bryan "Birdman" Williams pulled the song because she got a better reaction than Nicki.

Meanwhile, Fox, a longtime Kim nemesis, who also made comments about being the only Trinidadian femcee (Nicki is also of Trinidadian descent), doesn't think Minaj is being disrespectful.

“What’s funny, I actually applaud Nicki for it," Fox told MTV. "I think she’s doing an incredible job of branding herself. When you’re a boss b**ch, you give it up. Send her a Chanel bag or something. If you’re winning, you’re winning. That’s just how I see it. I’m not caught up in that at all … I’m not even in that category. I’m still one of the youngest female rappers in the game. [Other female rappers] may feel like that because they’re older, but I myself am still young. I don’t feel that. I applaud what she’s doing.”
