New York rapper Lil Kim has shared her reaction to Drake recently defending Nicki Minaj and dissing her at a concert last weekend.
Kim poked fun at Drake for revealing his true emotions and going at a female artist.
“I used to really like Drake…for him to have the audacity to disrespect me? He’s gonna shout me out, when Ray J’s the one who said it? How b*tchy do you look right now? You look like a straight p*ssy…You came at me, and I’m the f*king female… I didn’t even know [Ray J] was gonna do this sh*t….when he was on stage and he said what he said, I had no choice but to back him…” (Miss Info TV)
R&B singer Ray J initially called out Minaj last week.
Ray J took a moment to express his feelings on females in rap, primarily Nicki Minaj. “I’m seeing a lot of Lil Kim imposters,” Ray J stated. “I’m not saying no names, but you know who,” he continued, referencing biting Kim’s style after calling Kim the greatest female rapper ever. Lil Kim added, “We love her. We just want her to pay homage,” making an obvious reference to Minaj. “If you don’t pay homage then f*ck you,” she concluded. (Hip Hop DX)
This was then followed by Drake name-dropping Kim at a Minaj connect.
“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)
Drake later defended his decision to stand by Minaj.
“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”)
