The two female MC’s had their beef in the past, but have since put the drama to rest. However, Lil Kim felt she’s constantly asked about the “Chun Li” rapper but interviewers never ask Nikki about the beef. During an Interview with Power 106 F.M. on Wednesday, the 44-year-old artist told interviewers to stop asking her about Minaj.
DJ Bootleg Kev asked Lil Kim how she felt about Minaj’s album title “Queen.” By the expression on Kim’s face, she was annoyed by the interviewer’s question.
“Oh God, let me ask you this, Do you fuck with me for real? If you fuck with me then why isn’t this about Kim?” the mega rapper asked. “If we gonna mention one female, we need to mention them all. We need to bring everybody in and we need to show everybody love.”
She continued, “God bless her, I wish her the best,” she said. “She did what she did, until she’s ready, hopefully, God puts it on her mind to do the right thing because she knows what she did. Once that happens, hopefully, everyone will stop asking me.”
Lil Kim made it clear she no longer has beef with Minaj and said she’s tired of the industry trying to pin women against one another.
“”Let each female shine,” the “Queen Bee” said. “Let’s give every girl their own recognition. Let’s celebrate every girl in their own right. So the only way to do that is to focus on what their doing.”
Lil Kim said she never cared about the title “Queen” and that it was given to her by the legendary Notorious B.I.G.
She noted, “I don’t really care about that either. I was named that, I never named myself that. It’s a difference,” she said. “When the streets name you that, Biggie named me that. I didn’t name myself that. When you gotta name yourself, that’s a whole different thing, I would never name myself that.”
Kim and Minaj first began beefing in 2010 after the 44-year-old reportedly accused Minaj of stealing her style with the colored wigs and fashion sense, but never paid the rapper veteran homage.
