Lil Kim Claims PayPal Sales Record For Mixtape, Nicki Minaj Replies
Following yesterday's (Feb. 15) release of her "Black Friday" mixtape, which features a decapitated Nicki Minaj look-a-like on the cover, Lil Kim is now claiming the tape has sold more than 113,000 copies through PayPal in 28 hours, setting an all-time record.
"Thanks to you guys!! #lilkimblackfridaymixtape sold 113,000 copies in 28 hours which made me the #1 seller on paypal ever =) THANK U!" Kim tweeted, later stating she crashed the money transfer site due to "too many hits."
Instead of giving the mixtape away for free, "Black Friday" is selling for $10 a copy. If the sales numbers are indeed accurate, it's a step up for Lil Kim, whose 2005 release, "The Naked Truth," sold 109,000 copies in a week in the United States, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
Nicki Minaj wasted no time taking to her own Twitter page and responding to Kim and her claim. "Bwaahhhhahhahahahahahahhahahhhaaahhhhhaaahahahahhhaha!!!!!!!! *lifeless* *leaves on stretcher* *cant go on*," Minaj commented. "The devil is a liar."
Minaj's own album, "Pink Friday," sat atop the Billboard 200 chart last week.
Kim later shot back by tweeting, "#twitterbeef This is not beef. Real beef is when someone gets shot 5 minutes later. CHILD PLEASE!!! #toomanytwittergangstas #teamlil kim LEGO." The last time Lil Kim took a stab at Nicki Minaj was with the release of the diss track "Pissin On Em," a remake of Minaj's own "Sh*tted On Em."
