Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim may be involved in a tiff, but that doesn’t mean the Lil Wayne protégé doesn’t get along with any other female rappers.
In an interview with gossip blogger Perez Hilton, Nicki revealed that she gets along just fine with her female peers.
“There are many female rappers that I get along with,” she said. “There have so many female rappers that have congratulated me and given me genuine love, from Trina, who is my darling, to Missy Elliott to Queen Latifah to Foxy Brown to Remy Ma. It goes on and on, and that’s what people don’t understand.
“People think that I’m the ’hated female rapper,’ ” Nicki continued. “But a lot of the girls have shown me a lot of love and behind the scenes have said, ’Congratulations, keep up the good work.’ Can’t we all just get along?”
Lil’ Kim has been launching not-so-subtle digs at the rising upstart for some time now. Nicki, on the other hand, has mostly kept her cool. But the charismatic lyricist fired back at Kim recently on her Eminem-assisted track, “Roman’s Revenge.” On the number, Nicki seems to be taking a swipe at the former Notorious B.I.G. squeeze.
“Word, that bitch mad ’cause I took the spot?/ Well, bitch, if you ain’t sh—ing, then get off the pot/ Got some n—as out in Brooklyn that’ll off your top,” Minaj rhymes on the track.
Over the weekend, Lil’ Kim responded in a verbal tirade at a concert in Queens, New York. “I got more love from Queens than this bitch do!” Kim shouted to the crowd. “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 sh–!”
When Perez pressed Minaj about her relationship with other artists with whom she might not get along, the Pink Friday star brushed off any femcees who take issue with her style.
“Maybe they’ll just learn to just get over it,” she said.
