‘Lil Kim’ aka the original Queen B appeared on Power 105.1 The Breakfast Club show to promote her new mixtape ‘HardCore ‘. The newly mother dished on her motherhood and says baby ‘Royal Reign’ is her only pride and joy. However, Kim chose NOT to speak on her relationship with rapper Mr. Papers [aka the baby daddy].
Kim was probed about her beef with Nicki Minaj and she declares that all ‘truths’ will be unveiled a new upcoming documentary.
Kim also notes that Minaj is the only female mcee that refuses to pay homage to female rappers before her time and she FIRMLY states that Minaj has [from the inception of her career] imitated her entire style [from the wigs, to the clothing, photo spreads, and more] .
To make matters worse Kim says that the initial song in which Birdman swapped her verse in exchange for Nicki’s was when the beef stew began to brew.
” You see what people don’t understand is, I don’t have the machine [label, and financial backing from the industry elites] like she [Nicki] does so when I come out with a record or respond to her Kim is the big bully’ but when she does it no one says anything.
In that record ‘Flawless’ remix with Beyonce you know who she’s talking about, because she’s on the track with Bey so she’s not talking about her… Kim is referring to the verse where Nicki expresses: These B–ches Is Washed Up And There’s No Soap Involved! Now why would you be on a track with Beyonce and use it to diss another female, if that was me I would probably rap about my good p—y for two hours instead.
Also, I love Beyonce, I’ve done a song with her before as well and no disrespect to her but what was my name when I came out ‘ The Queen Bee’ and my fans were the ‘beehives’ ”
The interview then turned to Big Fendi [former manger of Nicki Minaj] who now manages Kim. Fendi alleges that Nicki landed her record deal with Cash Money by being a ‘groupie’. He also alleges that he still has the rights to Nicki Minaj’s name and website nickiminaj.com, and is hurt by Nicki after she [or as he said her lawyers] offered to pay him 15,000 for his finders fee .
Sidebar: Interestingly, while Fendi shared his side of the story he also acknowledged that he would work with Nicki today and he did succumb in taking the 15,000 pay out. …sigh the industry politics.
