      THIS, I was initially on Kim’s side but the bottom line is just because you came first doesn’t mean you’re the best.

      Nicki’s flow is far hotter than Kim’s ever was.

    I’m no NM fan, but I’m for the saying “Everyone got their time to shine”. Kim had her time, now that it’s over she’s bitter because NM is getting all the shine. Come on now, u’ve had all the love so far, move over so someone else can get some. And I think it’s two diff styles. LK was vulgar and gangster. I don’t know lots of NM’s songs, but the ones I’ve heard are nothink like Kim’s.

    @DEE

    YEA YOUR RIGHT NIKKI ONLY HAS HAD 1 ALBUM.. BUT YET SHE HAS MANAGED TO ACHIEVE MORE SUCCESS AND MAINSTREAM NOTERIETY THAN KIM HAS IN HER ENTIRE 16 YR CAREER AND KIM IS BITTER AND JEALOUS BECAUSE OF THAT.. KIM FEELS LIKE SHE IS THE ONLY FEMALE THAT CAN WEAR A COLORED WIG AND GIRLY CLOTHES.. I GUESS ANYBODY THAT WEARS HEELS, BRAS, AND MAKEUP IS COPYING AFTER HER TOO? KIM HAS ISSUES, HER OBVIOUS ADDICTION TO PLASTIC SURGERY EXPLAINS THAT.. NIKKI’S MUSIC SOUNDS NOTHIN LIKE KIM’S SO I DONT SEE WHERE SHE GETS THIS “COPYING” CLAIM.. NOTHING IS NEW UNDER THE SUN, KIM IS THE MOST JUVENILE 36 Y/O WOMAN IVE EVER SEEN

    Damn ‘Nikki is Queen’ you said exactly what I’ve been wondering, like are the ‘she’s copying me’ claims really about wigs and such? Ironically what does matter (their sound) is miles apart but Kim wants to stress about an image (one she’s clearly having issues with herself, can she even breath through her nose any more?).

    LMAO at the dude who says he masterbated to the hardcore CD cover, damn folks can be honest.

    But yeah…past Black Friday Kim needs to remember the majority of folks ain’t heard nothing like the woman in the vid said, makes it hard for her to maintain.

    ASAP –

    I agree entirely. I like both Lil Kim and Nicki (Kim less since this whole nonsense) but past Nicki’s image I like her MUSIC. I like the inventiveness, the choice in lyrics and the way she jabs and plays with topics, the voices which tell a story…in general i feel some don’t like Nicki’s style…which is cool and everyone should have an opinion, but I do feel some don’t realize Nicki has a voice which can reach others and represent their own style.

    Kim appealed to me but I can’t really get down with the ‘make a sprite can disappear in my mouth’ all the time because thats not my style in general. Kim isn’ t the only voice or style of rapping and as someone else said Kim is about being a gangsta and felt she had to prove herself because of all the men around her but Nicki’s not even concerned with that and just does her own silly sh>t.

    2 Demarius –

    THANK YOU. It really irks me folks act like if you’re black your image MUST be from another black woman. Nicki seems way more into fantasy and asian influence than anything else (Nicki the Ninja, Nicki the Harajuku Barbie). Which is why I eye roll the whole stupid thing.

    Kim didn’t invent her image and half the videos folks posting as proof speak to Kim having a REAL paranoid mind. MUSICALLY (which is what should matter right?) they don’t even sound alike. I’m mad Nicki has to deal with folks like Rihanna, Katy Perry, Ke&ha, and etc. as her competition but if she wears a colored wig its ALL about Kim and copying her. Shoot even if Nicki came out plain and simple considering who’s in the music media right now she’d probably have switched it up to embrace that.

    As a Nicki and Kim fan I will say Nicki is killing the game right now, there’s no other female out and Nicki is holding it down for the female rappers! I like Kim’s music, but she’s gonna have to come harder than that Black Friday s*** cuz that was straight trash. I don’t agree with people calling Nicki The Queen of Hip Hop because this is only her 1st album and it seem slike people are forgetting about other female rappers who held it down for years: Eve and Missy who always bring it, from the music to the videos. As far as the whole beef thing I’m so over it, it’s really old and I just feel like lets talk about something else!

    @Those that cannot do, stan
    I agree with accepting different opinions, but I’d just like to explain mine a bit. I said that Nicki has been PLAYFUL with her lyrics, but she’s never taken it to the level where her game needs to be to be proclaimed the queen.She seems pretty one dimensional to me and it’s ok for her to show her influences, but her flow is kind of dull IMO, so it ends up looking quite flat…And her voices irritate me.I want to her spitting, flowing and delivering straight bar after bar not doing voices. That’s good for a beginner, but not for a queen. My whole point is that I can’t name her the Queen of Hip-Hop

She is jelous of lilkim Kim is not jealous of her!!! When KIm’s new album comes out its a rap!!! Kim has a very huge fan base. Nicki is hip pop,she has cash money behind her if she did’t have thjem she would not be as popular or not at all. Im sick of nicki!! she sucks Kim is not goin anywhere and whoever said grandma about kim she is only nomore then 3 yrs older then nicki, so get yo facts straight.

    I get it, but I think that’s the point. Nicki’s style doesn’t personally favor you, which is cool, but I also don’t think not liking her style doesn’t deny she has some real talent. I wouldn’t name her a Queen (frankly I find the whole thing stupid) but I also don’t believe if another rap chick was out there she’d be invisible.

    I think Nicki brings a total package which other artists want to liven up their song, but even she said she mostly does the voices and personality for spots on other songs and tries to express herself simply on her own music (Hello, Good Morning & Till The World Ends compared to Right Thru Me or Did It On ‘Em).

    People say she’s only big because she’s the only girl in the rap game but that to me is like folks complaining there’s only one type of soda because you’re only staring at a Coke machine. I know its easy to fall into the mainstream and easy access but if we really want to talk about the female rap game we also have to look up folks and give them a shot as opposed to waiting to be spoon-fed someone.

    Lola Monroe is actually pretty good, I don’t know if she’s on her hustle but ‘Alright, Ok’ and ‘You’re A Jerk’ are pretty good and those songs have me checking for her music. Songs I, ironically, heard on a her and NM mix tape. Diamond is just okay to me but still…I only consider Nicki, Lola, and Kim one voice and one aspect of hip hop because none of them are THE voice or THE Queen to me.

He was giving us all this history of Nicki & what she’s done & we tried speaking up for Lil Kim & all that she has done & he kept cutting us off. We asked him, “I thought you asked what where our personal thoughts & who would we pick” now I know this prick has a vendetta for Lil Kim, he only had negative things to say about Lil Kim. He was also doing this with others as well, so the folks you see in the video pretty much were coaxed & some of the video was altered and edited.

    You know, just because someone does something similar does not mean they snaked the idea from someone. Hell, as a kid, I always drew all kinds of things, came up with several concepts I had never seen before- and sure as you know it, eventually I see people coming out with things extremely alike to something that originated in my head. Now if I were to publish something I created a long time ago about a year after someone else published a similar idea, I would be called a copycat. But really, it’s horseshit. Just because Minaj started to Crayola her world a little bit, or because she took a promo photo in the same position as LK (or a s*** ton of other female artists have) does NOT mean she was jacking K’s “style.” That’s just conjecture, at the most. Not saying I lean toward Minaj, but did anyone read about her growing up?? She has more means of origin in all the “style” she portrays in her work.

    I don’t even think the two should be compared- they’re two entirely different elements.

    Regardless of who started what, all this “dissing” b******* shouldn’t have been continued with. They’ve both got THEIR OWN things going on, and regardless of who started what, the best move would have been to just keep kicking ass in their career. But, nope! Gotta start s***, don’t we?
