Lil Kim Discusses Beef With Nicki Minaj (Video)
Lil Kim opens up about her issues with Nicki Minaj.
Yesterday, Lil Kim returned to the music scene with her new solo track, “Took Us A Break.” In an effort to promote her new single, Kim stopped by Ebro In The Morning today for an interview, where she discussed everything from her upcoming album, being featured on Remy Ma’s new song, “Wake Me Up”, and her beef with Nicki Minaj.
Without actually saying Nicki’s name, Kim revealed what really irks her nerves when it comes to female rappers nowadays, “You don’t come into the game disrespecting your idols. A lot of these girls come into the industry like that. It’s whack…and it always catches up to you late. Karma’s a mother.”
“At the end of the day it’s like..what me and Remy are doing – cuz everyone knows we had situations in the past, but what we are doing is boss. This is what guys do…This is what 50 and Fat Joe did – this is boss. When you’re with real, you recognize real.”
Kim went on to explain that she believes conflict between two rappers can be a way for them to learn to respect each other, “It’s hard when people can’t give you that respect, when people can’t mutually say ‘I’m sorry if I said something that offended you, I made a mistake, If I did this I apologize because that wasn’t me.'”
When asked if she could ever forgive the “Regret In Your Tears” rapper, Lil Kim replied, “Somethings just can’t be mended unless there’s, like, a different type of conversation. Some people take it too far, some people take it to a point where they try to really deliberately see you in the ground or they still hold on to ‘I’m right.'” She added, “A snake is a snake.”
Kim also made it clear that Remy’s Wake Me Up is not a Nicki Minaj diss record. According to Lil Kim, it’s not her nor Remy’s style to throw subliminal’s at someone when they can simply address them directly, “I hate that because No. 1, my mind is always on that bag.”
“The messed up thing is because we are real artists, and me and Remy do what we do, no matter what we say, if I be like, ‘Fake-ass such and such.’ They’ll be like ‘Oh! She’s talking about such and such.’ I feel like people know me and Remy well enough that if we are going to talk about somebody, we are going to say their name. We are going to address them. We gonna make that or whatever. We just making music.”
