The beef between Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim expanded today, after caught-in-the-middle Keyshia Cole tweeted about the pint-sized Queen Bee. The two started feuding after Kim called out Cole for doing a song with Nicki Minaj, the rapper with whom Kim has been publically beefing with for the past year. Both artists have released diss records about each other, including Kim’s “Black Friday” and Minaj’s “Roman’s Revenge” and “Tragedy.”
From Cole’s Twitter feed: “N while we're addressing everything, Lil Kim and I a r not "friends" I take that term very seriously. We made wonderful music. That is it.”
Lil’ Kim fired back with a series of tweets of her own: “@keyshiacole U got that right. We are not friends. The same way U take friendship seriously i take loyalty serious. @keyshiacole The whole world has seen me extend my hand to u over and over again. @keyshiacole Only someone who's trying to build a sincere relationship does shows 4 free & supports. u did not pay me a dime 4 none of that. @keyshiacole That warrants some type of loyalty and respect.”
Cole promptly responded: “@LilKim Kim that was a gr8 look 4 I coming out of jail just as it was a gr8 look for missy to have produced it. @LilKim all I'm saying is don't have everyone thinking I was disloyal as a "friends" cause we were never that and u know it. No disrespect. I don't have beef with anyone. I'm done. I feel the way I feel about friendship and loyalty. I ain't never been fake. All I'm saying.”
Lil Kim: “@keyshiacole Friend or no friend i would have never let anybody disrespect u on my record but i can't expect everyone to be as real as i am. @keyshiacole At the end of the day karma is as real as i am and it's coming to get u. oh wait...if it hasnt got u already... @keyshiacole My love & loyalty to u got u a hit, ur friendship with ur friend got u a flop. @keyshiacole looks like u need to choose ur friends more wisely dont u think? #teamlilkim LEGGGGOOOO. @keyshiacole Sticking 2 the situation. Again I would have never let anyone disrespect U on my song. That's loyalty & respect. End of story.”
