Nicki Minaj had a live interview with New York’s Hot 97 jockey Angie Martinez on Friday (Nov. 19) and this time she didn’t bite her tongue about her feelings towards rapper Lil Kim.
Nicki Minaj: The Billboard Cover Story
“She just really jumped out of the window and you got to be careful when you pick fights. That’s what I learned in this business. You just never know. I think people get me mistaken with like a real Barbie, they forget where I’m from. If I have to revert back, I can and I will. Don’t play with me… I respect you and love you. I’ve said it in every interview, time and time again. And if that’s not good enough for you mama, then it’s something deep rooted in you. Something is bothering you inside — that’s your insecurity bothering you. It’s not Nicki Minaj, it’s any girl that’s popping. She picked a fight with Foxy, then she picked a fight with Eve, then it was Miss Wallace, now it’s Nicki Minaj. Every time you’re in the news, you are getting at somebody. Put your music out and when I see your name on Billboard that’s when I’ll respond to you. Other than that. Goodbye!”
Nicki Minaj Says ‘Roman’s Revenge’ Is Not About Lil Kim
But wait, there’s more.
“You know what scares people? Success. When you don’t make moves and you don’t climb up the ladder, everybody loves you because you’re not competition. I feel like, you are going to go down in history now as a sore loser, as opposed to going down in history as the Queen.
“We all take from each, there’s nothing new under the sun. When you see Gaga, you see Madonna, but Madonna never hated on Gaga. Why in the Black community we have to hate on each other instead of saying “Thank you for showing me love. Thank you for keeping my name alive.” The same way she opened doors for me, I am now opening doors for her. Because nobody was even playing your music and you damn sure couldn’t get an interview to save your life. But now, you’re getting interviews and every time you get an interview, they are asking you about Nicki Minaj. We are helping each other, but if you are bitter, get a Life!”
In case you’ve been living under a rock, Lil Kim has made Nicki Minaj the bud of her hate rants lately, because she hasn’t paid sufficient homage to those female rappers that paved the way for her — including Kim — according to Kim.
