The bad blood between Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj is well documented.
And though it’s been a while since the rap royals traded jabs, folk have been re-heating their beef in the run-up to the release of Onika’s new album ‘Queen.’
Most notably given the Queen Bee moniker being one synonymous with Kim first.
During an interview to promote new single ‘Nasty One,’ the female rap pioneer was asked directly about the matter – and her response may surprise.

Kudos to Kimberly for keeping it trill and steering the narrative in a different direction.
In times of past, she’s fallen for the okey-doke, gotten worked up, and boom birthed headlines that make her look bitter. By taking control of her narrative and the broader narrative (about the media’s interaction with female rappers), she pivots to a more positive place.
Now, bring on that long-awaited album.
