Brooklyn rapper Lil Kim may not quite yet be ready for a one-on-one talk with Young Money star Drake but has admitted she is officially a fan of his music.
While she still holds hostility toward Drake, as a person, the Queen Bee said she is fully down with the Drizzy sound.
"Believe it or not, I'ma be real 'cause I'm a real person," Kim said in an interview, "I don't care. All that other stuff don't mean nothin'. For me, I'm a Drake fan. I like Drake as an artist. I don't like him as a person. But I like him as an artist and he makes good music. I'm just bein' real. I like his music." (RapFix)
In January, footage landed online showing Kim dancing to Drake's "The Motto" anthem.
Is Lil' Kim moving past her beef with Young Money? The Brooklyn diva was seen dancing and mouthing the lyrics to Drake and Lil Wayne's collaboration "The Motto" (1:46 mark) while co-hosting a party with Trina in Tampa, Florida, on Friday night. The Queen Bee was the center of attention as she shook her booty to the song and performed her hits "Lighters Up" and "Magic Stick." She made a comment at the end, which is hard to decipher except for the words "b*tch a* ni**a." On second thought, a reconciliation may not be happening anytime soon. (Rap-Up)
During the heated beef between rapper Nicki Minaj and Kim, Drizzy took his Young Money labelmate's side.
"I know you be calling women b*tches in sh*t but I can't say you the baddest b*tch. I can't do that because I respect you, I love you too much and you look too beautiful. So I just wanna say you the baddest WOMAN to do this rap sh*t," Drake told Nicki Minaj. "I don't give a f*ck what Lil' Kim or nobody else is talkin about, you're the baddest chick to ever do this sh*t! " Nicki turned around laughing, then came back and hugged him. He told her "I love you." Then he left the stage. (Necole Bitchie)
The rap star also defended his decision to stand by Minaj on a separate occasion.
"I just feel Lil Kim is a 'G' in the game, I feel like you're part of an era that's classic, that we'll never forget as young kids, me and Nicki, so it's like, you don't have to do that," Drake told television personality DJ Envy. "You don't have to get on stage and announce your presence and tell people to pay homage. That's a given and I watched Nicki pay homage to her time and time again and I just didn't respect it at all and whoever else was on stage with her, I don't respect that. You're just wearing your heart on your sleeve, you're showing that you're upset. And to me, nobody's done that to me yet and you know, but I would never expect Jay or Ye to get on stage and be like, 'Yo, pay homage to me! You need to respect me!' They know, they command my respect. They know their music and talent and that just signs that you're losing it, like, that's just how I felt and I really did take that personally. It bothered me and I really don't get too caught up with the Twitter, Internet stuff, but I did see it and I was like, 'You're supposed to be a 'G' and that just wasn't 'G' to me at all."
