Birdman did what any record label leader would do and crowned his Young Money-Cash Money artist Nicki Minaj, who’s the only female rap talent signed to his multimillion dollar label, the “best female ever in hip-hop—hands down” during an interview with Rap-Up.
This was much to the discontent of Nicki’s longtime female rap rival and Brooklyn icon Lil Kim’s fans, as you can imagine. Baby said that The Pinkprint artist has “been working” amid her social media disappearance, and he’s heard some of that new music her fans are thirsting over. But when his words suggested female rap pioneering from the Young Money raptress, deeming her more talented than any female rap artists before and during her hip-hop tenure, the Barbz Army and Queen Bee nation hit another rough patch.
Actually Nicki surpassed them last year.. outsold every female rapper without streams 😘— KEN (@bruceybadasss) February 27, 2018
No Kim = No Nicki. Not one Nicki album can sit next “Hard Core” or “The Naked Truth” who did cashmoney use as a template to create Nicki? —-> KIM— Ken Doll (@BeehiveKen) February 26, 2018
Dont compare their stats either. One came out in 1994, The other 2009.
