Young Money‘s Nicki Minaj has treated her “goons and goblins” to a special treat this Halloween by releasing an allegedly Lil Kim-targeted record called “Roman’s Revenge.”
On the record, Minaj makes multiple references to a “has-been” female rapper.
Nicki Minaj has finally responded to the ongoing disses from Lil Kim. Now after months of keeping quiet, what’s Nicki’s response? Lil Kim’s a has-been. On her new track “Roman’s Revenge” featuring Eminem Nicki sends not so subliminal disses towards Kim saying, “Look at my show footage all these girls be spazzin, so what the f*ck I look like getting back to a has-been. Yeah I said it, HAS-BEEEN. Hang it up, FLAT SCREEN. PLASMA… I’m a bad b*tch…I’m a cunt and I’ll kick that h*e…PUNT…You need a job this ain’t cutting it, Nicki Minaj is who you ain’t f*cking wit.” (Hip Hop Wired)
Minaj also hit up Twitter to tell fans the record was currently available.
“hahahahahhahha ROMAN’S REVENGE FT. EMINEM IS NOW AVAILABLE ON ITUNES AND SO IS PINK FRIDAY!!!! PRE-ORDER IT NOW!!!,” she tweeted on Halloween.

Last summer, Lil Kim said Minaj needed 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)
This later sparked a reaction from Minaj’s Young Money labelmate Drake.
“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.” (“Sucker Free”)
