Nicki Minaj On Lil’ Kim Feud: “I Did What I Had To Do”

Published: Thursday 16th Aug 2018 by David

Nicki Minaj has fresh thoughts on her feud with Atlantic Records’ superstar Lil Kim.

Once collaborators, the ladies saw their relationship take a turn for the worrisome when Minaj, perturbed by what she deemed to be disrespect from the Atlantic artist, caused irreparable damage to her legacy by mocking her shortcomings with a series of diss tracks.

The first and most lethal ? ‘Roman’s Revenge.’

Eight years later, Minaj- who has now sold more albums than her Grammy winning enemy- has revealed why she felt compelled to teach her a lesson she’d never forget.

Watch below…

Kim’s ‘Black Friday’ project was built in response to Minaj’s debut set ‘Pink Friday’ and featured a number of diss tracks penned about the ‘Queen’ performer.

Fortunately, recent years have seen their war of words simmer down and see Kim focus on building her long-awaited comeback album with help from friends like R. Kelly.

    Nothing personally to discuss here, I prefer little Kim’s music because I personally don’t like the sound and pitch of Nickis voice. I’m sure she’s talented, but I really cannot get through minutes of her voice.
    On another note, I hate how things are attributed to sales rather than innovation, quality of music and breaking ground at certain points in history as well as respect. If this was always the case than we shouldn’t complain when lessor singers are making waves than their more talented counterparts.
    The winner isn’t always the winner.

      Yep. Right & Wrong no longer matters anymore it’s all about who sold / streamed more.

    • xyz August 16, 2018

      Kims old songs, definitely. The autotuned mess she is releasing these days on the other hand are trash

    • Pink Tingz August 16, 2018

      Nothing personal I just don’t like Lil’ Kim’s new nose. Self-hate is a b*tch.

    • DanYiel Iman August 16, 2018

      I agree ☝🏽 I’m over this Newly built BARBIE b****!!🐝”Bzzz”🐝

  2. Clayne August 16, 2018

    Lol I can’t w her..

    But I will say, almost 40 and wearing bunny ears. Noooo child, noooo

    • Jay August 16, 2018

      Where’s the bunny ears??

      • Justbeinghonest August 16, 2018

        Umm did you even watch the video before commenting??? She is wearing a yellow wig with bunny ears….wow

    • Beam Me Up Scotty August 16, 2018

      Since when does wearing animal ears have an age limit? I could be 80 years old and wear bunny ears if I damn well want to. You are just being petty.

    • Nikki August 16, 2018

      I’ve seen women who are older than nicki wear eyes like that so what’s ya point?

  3. BootzShza August 16, 2018

    Meme h** where you at? Missed you on the last post. Did you finally get a life?

    Lol jk. You know I f*** with you h** 😂

    • Meme August 16, 2018

      I’m here love. I’m just overwhelmed with this whole roll out and all the drama. I’m not going back and forth with y’all.

  4. Carlos August 16, 2018

    No nicki did not win,no one won. In public nicki she plays like the good person but behind the scenes she gets to disrespect kim.
    No one won because it hurt kims image and career and nicki got backlash too but because nicki was new she they jumped with her.

    • Beam Me Up Scotty August 16, 2018

      How is it Nicki’s fault if the public went with Nicki? Just like how it’s not Cardi B’s fault that the main demographic prefers her over Nicki Minaj. Did it mean Nicki Minaj was more talented than Lil’Kim? No, it didn’t. All 3 ladies are talented, but not equally talented.

      • blaah August 16, 2018

        The public don’t know s*** nor do they care about the glass ceiling among female rappers, dummy. Your white ass built on gentrification and you have nerve to throw statements like “Well, the general public went with Nicki” on our faces. The GP also favored Iggy Azalea at one point, your point? We’re in the worst era of female rappers in terms of variety/success/musical innovation and it has been the way since Nicki’s reign. She did nothing but make it her thesis to disrespect other black female rappers for your own blind enjoyment. If you actually cared about female rap or hip hop you wouldn’t be so quick to disrespect veterans but you don’t see the beauty in what Lil Kim contributed to the genre. You only think Nicki’s the token rap chick that deserves respect and success and that’s the very reason you and Nicki both need to be destroyed.

  5. Gee August 16, 2018

    Nicki is doing a great job with building a walls between her and her industry counterparts. Also with all these antics she is making herself look mean and evil which is turning off the general public which is why she has to do all this nonsense to help her sales of queen.

    • Beam Me Up Scotty August 16, 2018

      All these interviews she has done this week have humanized her more than anything else. The general public had all the time in the world to pick her apart and create rumors about what they thought was going on, but now it’s her turn to talk and she’s spilling the tea. It is a tad messy, but all the drama is creating tons of publicity for her new album.

      • blaah August 16, 2018

        And it’s still flopping. Trick is built on controversy because she ain’t a true artist like her female rap predecessors, that’s why Ha music don’t speak. Keep pushing ya fave to her deathbed, Billy.

    • Beam Me Up Scotty August 16, 2018

      How can you not see her artistry? She has been praised by some of the greatest rappers of all time. Her “Monster” verse will go down in history as one of the greatest verses of all time. Just this week she hit #1 in over 85 countries. No other female rapper in history has accomplished that. I could on and on until my fingers hurt from typing, but it won’t matter because you just hate her for some reason.

      • Sza August 16, 2018

        LMFAOOOOOO GREATEST OF ALL TIME?! MONSTER!? 😂 SIT TF DOWN [email protected] 😂

  6. Ken doll August 16, 2018

    Cant wait until the truth comes out on a global scale because Nicki has had people fooled for years when it comes to this Lil’ Kim feud and the disrespect Kim has gotten for simply defending herself is disgusting. But it’s good that Nicki’s finally admitting that “Roman’s Revenge” was for Kim, since she denied it for years.

    • Beam Me Up Scotty August 16, 2018

      What more needs to be said? It’s seems like everyone agrees that Nicki Minaj swagger jacked Lil’Kim, but it’s not Nicki’s fault that people believe there can only be one successful female rapper at one time. It’s also not Nicki’s fault that the general public chose her over Lil’Kim. I’ve heard/seen the interviews where Nicki Minaj praised Lil’Kim and I’ve heard the songs where Nicki Minaj dissed Lil’Kim. Both ladies and fan bases need to move on. What’s really disrespectful is saying that Cardi B, someone who doesn’t write their own raps, is the better than Nicki Minaj and Lil’Kim.

  7. Yolanda August 16, 2018

    Saying you like someone is different than paying homage.
    What other female rappers you like? Foxy, Kim and Remy
    Who influenced your moniker Barbie? The asian culture, Harajuki
    Why did you wear one titty out? Picasso
    Where did you get the idea to wear color wigs? I’m a girl.

    • Yolanda August 16, 2018

      Paying homage is admitting that Lil Kim influenced ALL THAT and then some.

  8. blaah August 16, 2018

    So Nicki’s whole brand was created to be anti-Lil Kim; from her barbz to her swaggerjacking to her sneak disses to the “These b****** is my sons” line she stole from Remy. She can’t extend an olive branch because it defies everything she worked hard to establish herself. That’s why Nicki continues to push this (false) narrative and fuel her own hate train at the same time. 🤣🦄🚂

    • Beam Me Up Scotty August 16, 2018

      You didn’t even watch the interview. She got the “These b****** is my sons” line from Puff Daddy. If her entire brand was created to be anti-Lil’ Kim then she would’ve hated a lot more diss songs. Only people fueling the hate train are bitter Remy Ma and Lil’Kim fans. Nicki Minaj has explained everything numerous times, but you refuse to listen. I think Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj are both over it at this point and just want to move on with their lives. The fans need to do the same. Stop disrespecting someone who has been the game for 10 years. Nicki Minaj may have swaggerjacked your favorite, but she sure as hell can rap. Give the woman credit!

      • 👀 August 16, 2018

        Lol Puff has never said those words 😭

      • Know your history August 16, 2018

        Roxanne Shantae is where “these b are my sons” came from. Y’all don’t know nothing about hip hop. Lord help these children

      • Yolanda August 16, 2018

        Just because Nicki said it, doesn’t make it true. She stole that line from Remy’s tweet.

  9. blaah August 16, 2018

    I cannot wait til Nicki self implodes. It will not only hurt her, it will hurt her barbz because the invested so much into this fraud. This will teach y’all a lesson that if it’s broke fix it, cuz trust me Nicki Garbaj was broke on arrival. Y’all tried Sooo hard to throw this broken b!txh down our throats making her an industry slave for ya own sick twisted pleasure. Oooweeee that karma gon be LOVELY! 🙌🏽😜

    • Beam Me Up Scotty August 16, 2018

      If she hasn’t self-imploded yet, after being in the game for 10 years, why do you think she’s going to do it now? Nicki Minaj is still winning and she said it herself, “She’s not going anywhere!” You really are a sad individual to be waiting for something like that to happen to someone. It’s almost like Nicki Minaj personally did something to you. You’re a sad individual and no better than the crazy barbz you are constantly criticizing.

    • !!! August 16, 2018

      You’re really eager to see someones downfall??? Lord, please never make me this miserable.

  10. Intro August 16, 2018

    What she is not addressing is the alleged shady tactics lil’ Kim accused her and her team of doing behind the scenes. The same type of sh*t remy accused her of. She hasn’t even denied any of it.

    • Justme August 16, 2018

      So Male rappers don’t do the same thing.. yall love talking about nicki but there are plenty of men in the same field that did the same stuff

  11. Ex Barb August 16, 2018

    First off let’s begin with the truth.
    NM has never old sold Kim. If we are putting pure sales against pure sales? Lil Kim has sold more but when it comes to streams NM has more streams & that’s because that was the beginning of the streaming era. Kim is not from that era and Kim hasn’t put on an album since Naked Truth.

    NM bringing up this ancient fued between her & Kim is messy especially when recently Kim did a radio interview saying “I wish her the best. ” it was very messy the way she addressed it when it was brought up.

    The fact of NM now admitting RR was about Kim proves that not only was Kim defending herself but that Kim’s Black Friday diss came after a series of disses NM threw at Kim since 2003 but also Kim was not a “hater” like so many of us & ppl thought. The only reason why she’s bringing this up is because her album “queen” is doing really bad. It is now 5 bucks & that’s even without the match & free aways.

    I’m not a Kim fan but some of her songs and more so her image is pretty innovative & cool. I am an ex barb because last year I wanted to know why people dislike her so much (especially after hearing shether) & I watch “Playtime is over” series on YT & I was so hurt because not only has Nick has NM deceived all of her fans but she not only stole everything from Kim but even some of the bars. It still hurts to know that NM manipulates her fans & the fact that she tells hee fans to attack people directly & indirectly is pure evil. She’s a mean girl who uses people. That’s why I will never support NM ever again. I am so happy I see things clear now.

  13. Dumb H*** August 16, 2018

    Now his b**** no damn well Kim didn’t come at her first. She was sneak dissing kil since 2003 when she was in that group the hoodstars. For this b**** to sit up there and lie threw her teeth like she don’t know what she did or was doing she needs help. B**** how u give somebody props but dissing them in your tracks? Girl sit the f*** down. And all y’all garbage can fans like uh huh I told you. Lil b**** in the background like I remember b**** remember all the sneak s*** I was doing. But whatever

  14. rio August 16, 2018

    My thing is this who cares that is old news. Nicki fans gone ride with Nicki. Kim fans gone ride with Kim. Me I ride with Kim. My thing is its over and done with..Shut up make nice and keep it moving.

  15. erica August 16, 2018

    Am I’m missing something? Kim never came at her first so what is she talking about? She was throwing shots on the “Hello Good Morning” record with diddy, she lies in ya face like you can’t find this on the web. I wish I was there I would have call her lying flopping ass out for thiis

  16. Justafan August 16, 2018

    Girl, you can’t simply name drop then dissrespect by literally taking Lil Kim’s entire look. I’d be pissed too. Own up to it.

  17. Notafan August 16, 2018

    in 2009. But Minaj always fails to mention that and that they never did a video, never released it as a single. The song is called Grinding Making Money (its on YouTube). As far back as 2003 you can hear Nicki rapping “I’m coming for the crown, Kim that’s the word” (Hoodstarz) . She’s always been disrespectful and a hater and she still is. Onika started the beef

  18. August 16, 2018

    Nice video.

  19. Sza August 16, 2018

    ‘Did what she had to do eh? So in her come up she “had to” constantly throw subliminals? She “had to” steal Kims style and lyrics while doing it ? OK love, fawking sociopath.

  20. next bih August 16, 2018

    when your album costs as much as a footlong at subway…

  21. Detruth August 16, 2018

    Tgj shady asses lol. Her physical sales are no where near Kim’s though. Nicky has a huge following but it’s hard to compare streams with physical copy sales in my opinion.

  22. Kyle August 16, 2018

    All ya h*** wanna do is destroy Nicki just because she’s black vs cardi a light skin girl. If cardi was to do this same interview, everyone would be praising her . So tired of the back and forth with all these female rappers. When it was only Nicki out and no other rap female artist everyone was jamming to Nicki and all over her . Nicki has done so much vs all the female rappers put together !!! Nicki already stated her top five was Kim, Foxy, Remy and Hill

    • KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) August 16, 2018

      Nicki is light skinned too…She’s not even African American. She’s Caribbean just like Cardi. So bye!

  23. Kyle August 16, 2018

    Can we all enjoy all female rappers at the same time ????

  24. Ricko August 16, 2018

    I hope kim don’t take this bait. Nicki is indeed very clever she knows Cardi is the people’s champ at the moment. However she know she can get under Kim skin and make kim look angry once again. She coming for anyone who is willing to give her what she wants. Cardi and kim definitely should ignore and release good music. I’m loving this era for Minaj it’s like the foxy meltdown era. And behold which vet does she have backing her😫? foxy?? Nicki girl this is all a bad look. You were better off with putting spice on the track giving her the us stamp she been looking for..

  25. The Grand Bee August 16, 2018

    It’s so sad nicki is lying & many people don’t even know it . First of all…Roman’s revenge is not the first diss to Lil’Kim . Nicki been dissing Lil’Kim since the mid 2000’s . She came in the rap game giving Lil’Kim props but… She said slick things in her interviews & continued to diss Lil’Kim in songs . Lil’Kim ignored her for years until she had enough . If kim did say anything about nicki i’m sure it was about nicki dissing her while copying her pictures, styles, lyrics & videos . That’s wrong why wouldn’t she talk about it ? Anybody would talk about it . Why would you come in the music industry dissing your idol(s) while copying them ? That is just mean, nasty & evil . 🙂

    • Pink Tingz August 16, 2018

      Rap is competitive, even if she did or didn’t, it is what it is. She still paying homage to Bubbles, and still gets no respect back. Coco Chanel baby, yes! Haha

  26. Beam Me Up Scotty August 16, 2018

    What is this grade school? So what if Nicki Minaj dissed her. So what if Nicki Minaj came for the crown and took it. Fans like you created the crown and only allowed Nicki MInaj to flourish, while letting Lil’ Kim’s career die.

  27. What? August 16, 2018

    Some people need to learn what a diss is. Saying “I’m coming for the crown” is not a diss. It’s more of a compliment because you acknowledge who the Queen is. It just shows you are ambitious and want to be the best and if you are not trying to be the best at what you do, then why are you doing it? Kim made her bed and was very disrespectful and Nicki was disrespectful in return. It is what is. I remember Nicki giving props to all those female rappers, even when she was winning awards at BET so I know she is telling the truth.

  28. Czeal August 16, 2018

    Such a cute little tiger on the album cover. She make my balls move when I look at it. She look so meek.
