Brooklyn rapper Lil Kim has stayed mum on the topic of female hip-hop rival Nicki Minaj as of late, however, the Queen Bee finally broke her silence and addressed the speculated "Stupid H*e" diss record last night (February 15).
Quick with her words, Kim laughed off Nicki's record and questioned her motivation behind it.
"I didn't even know, who is that, who?," Kim playfully said when asked for her opinion on Minaj's Grammy Awards performance. "[How do I feel about 'Stupid H*e?] I'm pretty sure I feel the same way everybody else feels right about now. [laughs] You know. If you have to make a song called 'Stupid H*e,' you must be a stupid h*e." ("Watch What Happens Live")
Following the song's December release, speculation grew on who Minaj actually targets.
Two weeks after dropping "Roman in Moscow," the first single off "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" (Feb. 14), Nicki Minaj's alter ego Roman Zolanski returns to fires shots on her newest song, "Stupid Hoe." "B*tch talkin' she the queen when she looking like lab rat," Minaj raps in the beginning of "Stupid Hoe." Is Minaj talking about Lil Kim, also known as the Queen Bee? The shots carry throughout the song, as Minaj transitions from rhyming to singing and back again, "Stupid hoe is my enemy/ Stupid hoe is so wack/ Stupid hoe should have be-friended/ Then she could have probably came back." Sonically, the new track sounds quite similar to "I Get Crazy," a cut off Minaj's last mixtape, "Beam Me Up Scotty." (The Juice)
Last year, R&B veteran Mary J. Blige said she hoped both emcees would stop feuding with one another.
"Kim is my friend and I love and respect Nicki," Blige said in an interview. "I got to know the young lady and she's a sweetheart. ... It's the crews [fueling it.] It's the people behind the whole thing. Maybe one day it will happen. I'm hoping. We just all got to think positive. Everyone is just thinking so negative about it and everyone is in it, but if a bunch of people would say, 'Yo, stop this and let's help these girls do something together or to see the light.'" (WGCI)
In March, Kim blamed Minaj's decision to swagger jack her style for sparking their beef.
"This is the thing: It's just, it's really, like, at the end of the day, I do what I have to do, and I'm gonna keep doing what I have to do," Kim said in an interview. "I'm gonna do me. They're the ones that brought this about. It could have been that simple. But what they did was underestimate me. They thought I was gonna sit back and let them do what they were doing. I'm gonna let everybody know: I'm on my Hollywood sophisticated, but I'll bring it back if I have to. And that's in life. I can't help it. I'm G'd up from my feet up. If I have to handle my business, I'mma handle my business. And I have to fight for my fans." (MTV)
