Diddy, Trina Weigh In On Nicki Minaj Vs. Lil' Kim Feud

By Paul Cantor

The war of words between Nicki Minaj and Lil' Kim seems to have cooled, but that hasn’t stopped other female rappers from weighing in on what their presumed beef means for hip-hop.

Over the weekend, Trina, who hosted her third annual Jingle Bell Toy Drive and Fashion Show at club Play in Miami, spoke to NBC Miami Nightside’s Peter Bailey on the issue.

"I don't think it's good for hip-hop ... especially when it comes to women," she said. "I think hip-hop needs to unify. I think that it needs to be a bridge that you're building together. So many new artists are trying to get into the hip-hop genre and I think they get drowned in the midst of it … we're all adults and we're all grown … we just need to handle our business like women."

Diddy also recently weighed in on Nicki vs. Kim when he appeared on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot97 show on Monday.

"Kim is the queen," he said. "And Nicki’s the queen in her own right ... I wouldn't be around Nicki if I ever heard [something] negative about Kim. I've never heard nothing like that. Then, when it comes to just being an MC, then I've got to stand back. If they want to do things and be MCs, that's their business. I'm not with any negativity. I'm not with no beef. I love both of them."

Perhaps the barb trading between the femcees will cease and continue on its current path.
