Lil Kim Is Ready To Squash That Nicki Minaj Beef... Under One Condition

Lil Kim Is Ready To Squash That Nicki Minaj Beef... Under One Condition

"She knows what she did..."

Published August 9, 2018

Brooklyn femcee icon Lil Kim has had it with the probing on her ancient Nicki Minaj beef during interviews.

She’s putting her heel down on the controversy once and for all with the radio hosts of Real 92.3 and could perhaps be the last words she’ll ever speak on it. That is, until the Queens-bred rapstress fesses up to whatever wrong Kimmy says she needs to make right before the women can bury the hatchet.

  1. The Queen Bee stopped Bootleg Kev right in his tracks

    But he just had to ask about Kim’s feelings toward the title of Nicki’s upcoming album, Queen. “Oh, God…let me ask you this: do you f**k with me for real?” she responded before offering her suggestions about interviewing female artists. “If we’re going to mention one female, we need to mention them all. We need to mention everybody, we need to bring everybody in, and we need to give everybody love.”

  2. She goes on to shed light on her current status with the Young Money femcee, which has potential to change if Nicki makes the first move

    “God bless her, what she did, she did,” Kim stated. It’s not exactly clear what action from Nicki she’s referring to, but she wishes her well, anyway. “But you know what? God bless her. I wish her the best. I’m past that, I’m over it. at the end of the day, stop asking me about ‘ol girl, or that chick.”

    Should Nicki ever feel compelled to correct this alleged and unknown foul, Kim believes it will be a step forward for the both of them.

    “She did what she did, and hopefully God puts it on her mind or whoever else’s mind to do the right thing because she knows what she did,” the La Bella Mafia rapper continued, “and once that happens, then, hopefully everyone will stop asking me.”

  3. Kim does find it a bit unfair that they don’t ask Nicki the same questions, though…

    They save the Nicki-versus-Kim questions for Kimmy’s interviews only, she argued. Despite Kev mentioning he’s never talked to Nicki, she believes he still wouldn’t stir the pot with her. According to her, such questions serve only to perpetuate tensions in the femcee circle and pit the ladies against each other.

    “Let each female shine!” she exclaimed, adding that every femcee should be granted her own privacy and celebration of her own career without the messiness.

  4. As for that original question about Nicki’s ‘Queen’ title…

    She shared Bronx femcee Cardi B’s sentiments when she says she doesn’t care about the label. Her queen title wasn’t self-proclaimed either, Kim elaborated, explaining that the streets and her former lover and late New York rap legend Notorious B.I.G. bestowed that crown upon her. “When you have to name yourself that, that’s a whole different thing,” she said. 

  5. Speaking of Cardi…

    Kim emphasized that she’s always embraced younger artists, which both co-hosts could agree to. “So now those questions can stop,” she said. As a rap vet, Kim’s been keeping her ear to the streets of the new wave of hip-hop talents, too. Atlanta trap newbie Gunna is her favorite fresh talent out right now, and she also named Lil Baby, Moneybagg Yo, Lil Durk. And we can’t forget Kendrick Lamar, who she also showed major love to.
