Nicki Minaj: “Roman’s Revenge Wasn’t About Lil’ Kim”

Published: Thursday 4th Nov 2010 by Sam

Much ado has been made of Nicki Minaj and Eminem‘s epic collaboration ‘Roman’s Revenge’, most especially the not-so-subtle jabs Minaj appeared to be taking at a certain Lil’ Kim.

However, in a recent interview with DJ Khalid (spotted over at our girl Necole Bitchie), Minaj denied the song was directed at pint-sized Kim. In fact, she denied it was directed at anybody (in-particular).

Find out what she had to say after the jump…

No, I’m talking about everyone who has been in interviews talking and I think it’s good for people to hear me respond to ….People have said so much about me, So I don’t ever single anyone out because no one is worth being singled out. No one is worth having their name mentioned out of my mouth and they never will get that.

I’ve been quiet for such a long time and I’ve been the nice guy. I’ve been the person that gave everyone their props. I’ve complimented everybody from day one. I think that as a rapper, you can’t be a rapper and not speak on things being said about you. I use my music to say what I have to say.

And there you have it.

Do you believe/agree with Ms. Minaj? Is she blowing hot air?

Your thoughts?

  2. LEO November 4, 2010

    Yeah, yeah, whatever. That’s total B.S.. I was born 23 years ago, NOT 23 minutes ago!

  3. Heir November 4, 2010

    this b**** is a lie. EVERYONE knows she was talkin bout Kim, just like when Keri Hilson thru out her jabs, EVERYONE knew who she was talking bout.

    @en route- i agree with you, own up to it and in the end u will get more respect……

  4. Jermany November 4, 2010

    well lil kim is in dat group of s*** talkers..nicki is too classy for dat..lil kim stooped low..by startin ish anyways..and i’m glad dat nicki is so mature..n doesn’t lower her esteem by startin ish wit kim

  5. Richard November 4, 2010

    I do think that the song in general may deal with haters, but the lyrics were definitely geared towards Lil’ Kim.. and that’s fine. Kim started it.

    I agree that she has been more than nice though. She hasn’t had any huge beefs with other female rappers. Kim came out the gate, just to get some publicity.

  6. tae November 4, 2010

    this b**** is getting a lil to cocky for me …

  7. Jermany November 4, 2010

    and so wat if its bout kim..she can hav personal gratification knowin its bout her..she don’t gotta cause drama..and make headlines..more specifically nicki talks bout in interviews that most of her haters are women..for example, da women dat did dat hip hop special on bet…comparing her to kim kardashian wit a mic..so don’t go there if u don’t kno alil bout nicki’s background..because she specifially talkd to sway bout dem kinds of haters..n sum of them were otha female rappers not jus lil kim

  8. queensize November 4, 2010

    B**** please. You was talking about Lil’ Kim and Keys and you threw a jab at all femcees. Grow some balls honey. You are slick out your mouth then always backtracking.

  9. Soulful Roses November 4, 2010

  10. Robier November 4, 2010

    SHE THINK WE STUPID….. PLEASE. COME ON SNICKI OWN UP

  11. iAmCaprikorn November 4, 2010

    She blowing hot air because she most definitely dropped Lil Mamas name in a song or two… especially in 5 Star Chick. Im low key hoping Lil Kim come and blaze on a track.

  12. KAT DELUNA FAN November 4, 2010

    You need more people,next ->

  13. jeremydante November 4, 2010

    wise PR decesion.
    hopefully that song will get more rap chicks to step their game up.
    that’s what it’s all about, waking female rap up.

  14. Jace November 4, 2010

    Girl Bye! She was absolutely talking about KIM and only her flock of bimbo brained barbie followers would believe this bull. Kim went in a bit too much ranting all over the place about Nicki, but damn, at least KIM ain’t throwing jabs to unidentified sources. That B**** will call yo ass out and thats why I LOVE KIM.

  15. Traci Summers November 4, 2010

    THE WAY THIS INDUSTRY IS … U COME OUT WITH 1 SONG..GET BIG ON THE INTERNET AND UR A LEGEND WITH A STRONG LEGACY… LOOK AT HOW NICKI IS TALKING AS IF SHE IS ABOVE LIL KIM OR ANY OTHER FEMALE RAPPER WHO WILL SLAY HER… I CANT STAND NICKI SHES TOO COCKY NOW..LIKE KANYE N EM.. WILLOW CAME OUT WITH 1 SONG GOT BIG ON THE INTERNET AND NOW SHES SHITTING ON RIHANNA AND IS THE QUEEN NOW.. NO NICKI U WER TALKIN ABOUT KIM SO STOP TALKING S***.. CUZ KIM IS PLAYING NICE..SHES LETTING U HAV IT FOR A BIT. REMEMBER THE SILENT ARE THE MOST DEADLIEST

  16. cutiepie November 4, 2010

    She is such a back sliding b****

  17. Jahova Witness (C*** Flea) November 4, 2010

    She did not say she wasn’t talking about Lil Kim

  18. FUSION November 4, 2010

    She didn’ t actually say it wasn’t aimed at Kim, she said it was not aimed at anyone in particular. If it is aimed at more than one person, it could still be Kim, she’s probably trying to be even ruder, by not giving Kim enough respect to mention her name.

  19. My thoughts exactly November 4, 2010

    @Jermany oh plz with that classy line if she was keeping it classy she should have never made that song period. She was already winning by not responding to the nay sayers so to finally say I wanna speak on it then b******* and say it wasn’t for anyone inparticular is WEAK. Even though she came out with the song 6 months after Kim even said anything was laughable but she gained a little respect because she decided to speak out. Well at least her die hard fans believe this weak cop out

  20. callm3crazy November 4, 2010

    Bull. At least when lil Kim talks about someone she is woman enough to direct it at that person. She will say your name and everything.

  21. Quiana November 4, 2010

    Ok Nicki child please we all know that was at lil kim, wow if you are woman enough to talk s*** well you should be woman enough to take the heat dumb b****.

  22. Team Minaj California November 4, 2010

    She did not say she wasn’t dissing Lil Kim, she said it wasn’t aimed at one Particular person, meaning that she was taking shots a slew of people.

    People have been talking/rappin/dissin her since day one…. Roman’s revenge was just all in the making.

    Nicki did things that many rappers (male or female) have never done. People did not expect her to come up this big so they wanna bash her for no reason. From her wet & wavy days doing bootleg interviews in Queens, Nicki has always gave female rappers their props, especially Kim. Anbody who says that Nicki was throwing Shade @ Kim(b4 revenge) don’t know what their talking about & is going off hear say & not facts. I liked the way she responded.

  23. THEiVY November 4, 2010

    *DEAD* AT PEOPLE SAYING NICKI IS CLASSY. A WOMAN OF CLASS WILL NEVER CURSE OR RAP ABOUT THE THING SHE RAPS ABOUT … NOW IS SHE TRASH… NO NOT REALLY, BUT SHE IS NOT CLASSY. NICKI IS ABOUT AS CLASSY AS A CAVIAR ON A SALTINE CRACKER !

  24. truth serum November 4, 2010

    Lol her metaphors and flow on Roman’s Revenge was horrible. If I was her, I’d say it was about no one in particular as well. Lest she get a slew of better qualified female emcees to eat her 90 lb fake ass alive. Good job Nicki, you know your role. Keep peddling your Yo Gabba Gabba rhymes with animated exuberance because lawd knows if you lost the ass and the costumes you’d be right back on the corner where they found you. Attempting to push up on some dude or another in hopes he’d get you a purse like the rest of these dumb ass low self esteem broads out here.

  25. THEiVY November 4, 2010

    TRUTH SERUM WENT IN !

  26. Chanel November 4, 2010

    Its not that she said it wasn’t about Lil’ Kim AT ALL..its about Kim, and everyone else who has had a negative thing to say about Nicki Minaj..she doesn’t wanna give that b**** Kim any more publicity off her name..cause its not about Kim..its about Nicki & Pink Friday…f*** Kim.

    and she did not take a shot at Lil’ mama on “5 Star Chick” LMAO..ya’ll are dumb as S***!!..in New York they call girls “Lil’ Mama”..she was just talking a b**** who thinks shes a 5 star when she really a 3 star..not the rapper Lil’ Mama (who cares about that b**** enough to diss?)

    she’s playing her cards right, because it would be stupid for her to run her mouth saying names..only bumb btiches do that..Kim even hesitated to admit that the pink wig thing she was doing was directed towards Nicki…ANYWAYS after Monster & Roman’s Revenge Nicki has proven to you bumb b****** that she is a true rapper, and can write her own s***…

    I just hope Lil’ Kim kept some of biggies best verses or got herself a better ghost writer if she plans on dissing back. ahaha

  27. Question Existing November 4, 2010

    Since when is Nicki Minaj classy??? You call this classy??? OH OK…

  28. My thoughts exactly November 4, 2010

    @Chanel I’m sorry but you sound kinda silly. So Only bum b****** mention names?? No only bum b****** take shots at people then say it’s not towards anyone directly. And relax the old Nicki is 10x better then this crap she puts out now. Her delivery in monster is sick and minus maybe 2 lines in that song she wasn’t saying s***. Romans Revenge I’m not even gonna get started on that crap. And ur right it’s about Pink Friday not lil Kim at the moment and that’s why she was winning by keeping her mouth shut the first time. Now she just seems shook

  29. jasmine November 4, 2010

    me personally….i do think tht she’s talkin about Lil Kim as well as all the others that keeps coming at her in their songs..! but she’ tryna have a successful album nd she doesn’t want to add more fuel to the fire with the whole beef incident.! but it doesnt matter who she’s talkn about bcuz the song is still hotttt.!

  33. 92Hope4HIPHOP November 4, 2010

    BS! she’s lying… she was talkin about kim and everyone knows it… listen to the lyrics in the second verse, they’re very specific to kim. just like keri hilson in the ‘turnin me on’ remix, she took subliminal shots and then realized that what she did probably wasn’t a good idea.

  34. Jermany November 4, 2010

    YALL ARE INGORANT ASS HOLES..THERE IS NO EVIDENCE SAYING IT WAS BOUT LIL KIM..IT WAS ABOUT HER FEMALE HATERS IN GENERAL..SO FUCC OFF..NICKI IS DOIN DA DAMN THING YALL RETARDS..N SHE IS KEEPIN IT CUTE N CLASSY BY NOT MENTIOININ NAMES..EVN THOUGH SHE IS SHYTIN ON B******..YALL ARE FUCCIN PHAGGS..GET A LIFE..CLUE…AND MOST OF ALL..GET DA FUCC OUTTA HERE..TALKN DAT BULL

  35. FUTURESTARdelux November 4, 2010

    OH LORD I CAN’T WITH THESE NICKI STANS… NICKI WILL EAT KIM ALIVE? PLEASE B**** IS TOO P**** TO EVEN SAY THE QUEENS NAME LMAO! KIM AINT A 3 YEAR OLD SO NICKI’S NURSERY RHYMES AND SCARY FACES WON’T AFFECT HER. I REALLY DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW ANYBODY CAN PLAY A NICKI TRACK AND A KIM TRACK AND SAY NICKI IS THE BETTER RAPPER? O_O WTF?

    NICKI IS A WEAK B**** AND THE ONLY REASON SHE HAS THIS SUCCESS IS BECAUSE THERE ARE NO OTHER FEMALES OUT ATM, WHERE’S KIM? MISSY? EVE?
    NICKI IS A SLY P**** ASS B****, SHE’S DENYING SHE WAS TAKIN ABOUT KIM AND THROWIN SHADE AT THE SAME TIME, IF SHE EVER CAME FACE TO FACE WITH THE QUEEN SHE’D BACK TRACK HER PLASTIC ASS OUT THE DOOR FASTER THAN SHE SUCKED D*** FOR A CONTRACT.

    YOU THINK NICKI WOULD BE GETTIN ANY SHINE IN THE DAYS OF 2PAC AND BIGGIE?!

  36. Shaytan November 4, 2010

    So Nicki murders Kim? The same Kim that came at Tupac, Remy Ma, Shyne, Foxy Brown, Eve. Jay Z & is still around to talk about.

    Nicki has been taking shots at Kim way before she became famous. However she never mentions names and then when people call her out like Kim she plays the victim. She has been calling Kim a has been since her mix tape days. The same way Nicki called out Foxy Brown & Eve.

    Say what you want about Kim however she is one of few with a hard in this game. She says how she feels and never bites her tongue. She calls you out by name & doesn’t think twice.

  37. OKAY November 4, 2010

    NICKI GURL…..Bye Girl, Fly Girl #OK

  38. My thoughts exactly November 4, 2010

    Whether you like nicki or not anybody who agrees with popping s*** without saying names because you feel you won’t give then the satisfaction is str8 (Bernie Mac voice) PADUSSY!! If you didn’t want to give them the satisfaction then you shouldn’t have responded at all!! It’s not classy to pop s*** then get afraid to say a name, so stop throwing the word classy in there to justify that b**** ass move. She’s a pop s*** apologize n**** #justaskkiss

  39. Nick November 4, 2010

    I agree with her, there is no point in saying names, if u hated on her, she’s talkin to u, so yes lil Kim (someone we all loved when she was hot), if the shoe fits babe., they need to let it go, there’s always gonna b new people adding their own flava to things let it be people. The song is hottttt she slays all haters!!!

  40. My thoughts exactly November 4, 2010

    @Nick but that wasn’t just a typical “hater” song she says specifics indicating it’s at least directing to one person in particular. That’s what makes her look fraudulent. And this is no hate over here because honestly I don’t like the direction of music nicki is in now but I did love her back in her 07 days an I respect her grind. And this is no defense for Kim because I was never a huge Kim fan but I respect her for accomplishments just like I respect nicki for what she’s accomplished so far. But I dont respect when someone says imma do and say one thing but I mean another. That’s hella wack

  41. TWITTER.COM/SEAN_DA_GODDESS November 4, 2010

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO NICKI MINAJ REALLY DOESNT WANT IT WITH LIL KIM!

    SAY WHAT YOU WANT ABOUT KIM! BUT KIN WENT AGAINST THE BEST IN THE GAME! INCLUDING 2PAC AND BIGGIE!

    NICKI ISN’T S*** NEW! LOL PUNK B**** IS SCARED! PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

  42. Mr-DeBonair2U November 4, 2010

    I agree with Jermany, JertmyDante, TEAM Minaj Cali & Chanel. the rest of yawl got real emotional for a person who on the losing side.

  43. Yellow Gorrilah November 4, 2010

  44. HELLO! November 4, 2010

    HELLO PEOPLE! Nicki says she got n***** out in Brooklyn that will off ya top!!!!

    Nicki is from Queens……but WE ALL know who is from Brooklyn.

  45. ken November 4, 2010

    BILL S*** JUST AS FAKE AS HER ASS NOTORIOUS K.I.M. KILL HER

  46. PINK FRIDAY NOV 22ND November 5, 2010

    Nikki know that saying Kim’s name would give Kim probably the most press she’s had since she hung up her dusty wigs and went to jail.. Nikki aint giving granny Kim no shine.. She aint in the business of resurrecting b****** careers. Pink Friday h**

  47. michael mich November 5, 2010

    i dont agree with minaj. bt let her stop f***** around with kim. shes (kim)better thn her(minaj) a thousand times coz kim was the first in the game!!!!!!!! Minaj u should respect kim.

  48. jasmine November 5, 2010

    to all the people saying that lil kim is better than nicki minaj is because she came out first..yall sound real stupid because it doesn’t matter who came out first it matters on who is the most lyrical.! nd to me i think nicki minaj is in today’s music.! lil kim is good, she’s really good but if she tried to release a song today….it would flop because her style is played out and nicki has something new to offer.! Lil’ Kim is good…but based on today’s music, she as no spot on the charts.! pointblankperiod.!

  49. jasmine November 5, 2010

    *has.! (sorry for the error.!)

  50. kimmysbrownminaj November 6, 2010

    You guys are retarded. Callin Lil Kim granny kim when nicki aint but 5 years younger than her. As far as nicki doing things no one has done that is negative. Foxy was on certified platinum and gold singles before her album came out and she was a teen! Kim been did this whole Barbie style ERA, and remy ma had just as much street respect. Difference is nicki been on the come up since 03, so of course people act like she the best. She has a following with no album duh! The problem is when pink friday drops. Sorry but “your love” “blow your mind” “check it out” & “massive attack” are all trash! Roman’s revenge is ok but she studders too much, she has writers block and turrets. None of her songs can mess with “remy ma – my life” “eve -blow your mind” “foxy brown-bang bang” lil Kim -queen b**** remix w/ jayz “. Or “amil-i got that” not even “ms jade -feel the girl” lmao. Nuff said

  51. Kiddy November 8, 2010

    I love Nicki Minaj!
    Not a huge fan of “Roman’s Revenge”
    (although it grows on me ever day)
    I agree with Nicki
    I never mention hating ass b****** by name!
    I lost a lot of respect for Kim after seeing how she handled things betweent her and Nicki
    Nicki always from day one gave lil Kim praise
    said that Kim and Foxy paved the way and inspired her
    I’m also sick of people comparing Nicki to Kim
    acting like kim the only b**** they rocked a wig….or had green hair….
    Wake up call for you b****** she wasnt!!!

  52. Ucla Girl November 8, 2010

    I’m happy that Nicki shot back at Kim…. and its obvious the song is about her but I agree with Nicki don’t give out any free promo don’t say Lil’ Kim or anyone else’s name but we all know the deal. 1 for Nicki if anyone is keeping score.

  53. Rakim November 10, 2010

    MAAANN MAAAN MAAAN! KIM DONT KNOW,.. SHE JUST DIGGN HERSELF INTO THE DONGEON THAT THE HUNGRY DRAGON SLEEPS ( NICKI MINAJ) NICKI WOULD EAT HER, REGERGITATE HER AND SEND HER BACK IN THE TIME MACHINE SHE CAME FROM TRAVELING BACK TO 111222111 B.C B**** YOUR INSTINCT THE ONLY WAY WE KNEW YOU EXIST WAS FROM THE REMAINS NICKI LEFT , AND YOUR FUCKN FOSSILS. NICKI IS SHITTTN ON THE BISHHES! &&& OWW YEAH YOU IS UGLIER THAN A MUTH F*CKAA TWO HAHAHAHAHAHHA

  54. kimmysbrownminaj November 11, 2010

    All of you are SLOW! Kim is not saying she’s copying her bcuz of the wigs only , her clothes , rhyme style , the Barbie thing . You can all lie through your teeth but everyone knows that’s kims style . Go ahead listen to “Lil Kim-when Kim say” rkelly and jay-z shake ya body feat Lil Kim”. Also “Lil Kim jumpoff” “lil Kim how many licks video”. And Kim came to queens and shut it down youtube the video. Point is, nicki can’t go to no bar or club in Bk and say “f*** Lil Kim” without getting a bottle thrown at her! Nicki bites too many rhymes “if drizzy say get her Imma get her” remy ma “whateva” “if the squad say get her Imma get her”! And what sense do it make to pay homage and talk s*** on the sidelines? If you got n***** that could off her top say her name ! You not classy , just p**** ! People just ride her name with no merit. To be honest diamond from crime mobb is more lyrical and doesn’t repeat lines because she can’t come up with punchlines. Just sick of the weak rhymes ……….it is sad to see Remy was the last new comer and this is what we stand for ? Nicki? And eminem dumbed down his flow and verse for her! He never spits this weak though it was better than most rappers out. But if Em ate jay on “renegade” how he not better than nicki on this song ? Cuz they wanna make her shine lyrically…….just sad smfh

  55. T. November 21, 2010

    Why she just won’t admit she wrote that rap for Lil Kim. I smell some bitchassness going on with Nicki. I mean you was big and bad enough to write it..just say it. I think she know Kim will whip that a**. Kim give this chick a bib..white the milk from her lip from sucking on your t*t and go on about your business. Always love the Queen B.

  56. rebecca December 15, 2010

    nicki you will always be the badest b**** and that is why all them want to bees are mad

  57. bre January 8, 2011

  60. TOYA June 2, 2011

    TO ME MOST OF Y’ALL R BEHAVING CRAZY OVER A STUPID BEEF, IN MY OPINION NICKI IS COCKY N THATS PART OF HER IMAGE BUT SHE SHOULD BE THE LADY AND IGNORE HATERS UNLESS SHE HAS TO GRACE THEM WITH A WORD ARE TWO. AND LIL KIM SHOULD STOP BEING A HATEFUL B**** AND TRY TO UPLIFT THE YOUNGER GENERATION OF RAPPERS NOT PULL THEM DOWN AND BE A LADY EVEN TO JUST LET LEVEL HEADED PEOPLE RESPECT HER N NOT LOOK DOWN ON HER CAUSE SHE GETTING OLD N NEED PEOPLE TO SEE HER AS A WOMAN NOT A FIRESPITING BIMBO
