New York rapper Lil Kim has taken her issues with Nicki Minaj to the next level by calling out the Young Money emcee’s manager, Diddy.
Rapping at a concert in Baltimore, Maryland over the weekend, Kim let out a verbal diss toward Puff.
Kim continued her anti-Nicki campaign at Sonar Nightclub in Baltimore last night and this time, she added her soon-to-be manager, Puff into the mix. Around the :27 mark of “It’s All About The Benjamins” performance, the Queen Bee says “Ay, Puffy should be ashamed of his f*ckin’ self!”. Kim later brought out B-More’s Keys The Problem to spit her Nicki diss freestyle. The saga continues. (Rap Radar)
Recently, Diddy professed his admiration toward Minaj and detailed her “greatness.”
And now, Nicki Minaj is finalizing the paperwork that will allow the Last Train to Paris superstar to guide her career. The Young Money femcee has already been in the studio with Diddy, and he’s been singing her praises. “Nicki Minaj, she’s definitely one of the great ones,” Diddy told MTV News while promoting “Get Him to the Greek,” speaking publicly for the first time about his new signee. “She has a long way to go, but you know how we recognized LeBron [James] was a great one, Tiger [Woods] was a great one, and Kobe [Bryant] was a great one? Nicki is up there. Her story has just begun.” (MTV)
Speaking in a radio interview with Kendra G, Kim said she felt Minaj had to pay homage to her.
“Here’s my thing, all females that come in the game, we all need to stick together and I always try my best to embrace them but what happens is when you come into the game and realize that I’m not going away and my fans are still here and they can’t just step over me. They can’t just step on me and then they’re kinda like, they get upset and then they don’t want to be my friend anymore and I think that’s really childish, you know what I’m saying? It’s stupid because all I ask for is to be respected — pay homage at the end of the day, a lot of things go on behind the scenes that people don’t know about and it will be aired out. You can’t hide the truth — when I came out to do this promo tour, it was a reminder of where it came from because if you’re gonna swagger jack somebody and take their style, at least pay the respect and the homage…” (Kendra G)
Over the weekend, Drake vouched for his Young Money labelmate during a Connecticut concert.
“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. 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)
