The ongoing battle between Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj heated up last weekend when Kim took some hard shots at the Young Money label MC during a club appearance in Queens, New York? — Minaj’s home turf.
“I got more love from Queens than this bitch do!” Kim yells. “I will erase this bitch’s Social Security number. First of all, I don’t even need a record right now, I’ll kill that bitch with my old shit!”
Kim then tore into some of the biggest hits of her career, including “The Jump Off,” “No Time,” and “Wait a Minute.” Toward the end of the footage, Kim addresses the crowd again.
“I don’t never let nothing take me off my grind,” she says. “Money over these bum-ass bitches.”
Kim and Minaj have been trading barbs, sometimes indirectly, for months. It all seems to stem from Kim feeling that Minaj has bitten her style without paying proper respect.
At times, both have said or suggested that there’s no conflict. But Minaj’s recent collaboration with Eminem, “Roman’s Revenge,” set things off again.
“Word, that bitch mad ’cause I took the spot?/ Well, bitch, if you ain’t shittin’ then get off the pot,” Minaj spits on the track. “Got some n——s out in Brooklyn that’ll off your top.”
However, Minaj recently denied that the lyrics are specifically about Kim.
“I’m talking about everyone who has been in interviews talking,” Minaj told DJ Khaled during a radio interview. “No one is worth having their name mentioned out of my mouth and they never will get that.”
