Brooklyn femcee Lil Kim is taking her issues with Nicki Minaj to further extremes by announcing the release date of a Black Friday mixtape.
While not directly calling out Minaj, Kim's mixtape is a play-on of the rapper's Pink Friday debut.
"Black Friday the Mixtape - 2/14/11- WHO THE F*CK WAR?#ItsBlackFridayH*e LEGOOOO!!!!!," she tweeted Wednesday (January 26).

Around late November, Kim dropped her full-length "Black Friday" Minaj diss.
Let the war of words continue. Lil' Kim delivers her full attack against Nicki Minaj on "Black Friday." Over Pharoahe Monch's instrumental from "Simon Says," the Queen Bee spits stinging words about the Harajuku Barbie and her Young Money labelmate: "This hood sh*t, you and Drake ain't built for/ This the shit the other b*tch almost got killed for." She doesn't stop there, calling the Pink Friday lyricist a clone. "This ain't a championship fight, I been the greatest/ See the fact is, what you doing, I did it/ Lames tryna clone my style and run wit it/ That's cool, I was the first one wit it/ You's a Lil' Kim wannabe, you just hate to admit it." Even Nicki's co-manager and Kim's ex-affiliate Diddy is not safe. "You and Diddy, sorry bunch of swagger jackers," she raps on the blistering track, which Hot 97's DJ Absolut premiered in full today.

Prior to the record's release, Kim called out Minaj during a show in the rapper's Queens, New York hometown.
"I got more love for Queens than this b*tch do," Kim said at a Queens, New York concert. "I will erase this b*tch's social security number. First of all I don't even need a record right now and I'd kill that b*tch with my old sh*t. I'll kill that b*tch with my old sh*t...Right now I'm in Queens, repping, because I got love for all the boroughs. Y'all see me in places where y'all be like, 'How the f*ck she there?' I touch my people -- like I said, I got a catalogue, this catalogue p*ssy. I'll kill this b*tch with my old sh*t. My records ain't just enter the charts, they made history. What the f*ck is this bullsh*t, this sh*t come and go. What the f*ck, is you kidding me? ... We gonna get back to partying, I just want to let y'all know, right, I don't ever let nothing take me off my grind..." (Real Talk NY)
In December, Minaj was asked if Kim's disses off-set the achievements of female rappers.
"It does, it does. But the thing that I want to promote is that if you see someone doing their thing, give them their props. We all have it hard and face the same challenges as female emcees. Show some mutual love and respect for each other so that it doesn't get nasty. And she can be a nasty character." (New York Times)
The Black Friday mixtape is scheduled to drop on Valentine's Day.
