Lil Kim Quizzed On Nicki Minaj’s ‘Queen’ / Surprises With Response

Published: Thursday 9th Aug 2018 by Sam

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.

See what we mean below…

First admonishing the Real 92.3 host for even asking the question, she went on to stress that the narrative surrounding female rappers shouldn’t be about beef but rather their musical output. She even says of Minaj: “God bless her, I wish her the best.”

Peep the full segment…

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.

    She sounds bitter.. she didn’t even call her by her name. She said ol’ girl.. and said she know what she did. You can’t control the narrative and not look bitter and if you get all worked up and look like you mad about it.

      there was NOTHING bitter about what she said. she handled that like a GROWN WOMAN. She is TIRED of ya’ll trying to keep bringing up NICKI. nicki IS OVER. Let Kim do her thing

      • ??? August 9, 2018

        lmao um no, botched kim is still clinging to nicki’s name to bring attention to these flops she keeps releasing. shes BITTER and FAKE gurl, and has BEEN over since flip phones were still in style lmaooooo, that why she keeps nickis name in her plastic jaws lmfaoooo

      • Faf August 9, 2018

        Lmao @ nicki is over

      • Lmfao_Hoe August 9, 2018

        Word and shes right Kim earned that titled before even saying it herself by the Culture. S*** we all know Michael Jackson is the King of Pop, but he too never proclaim that titled to after Elizabeth Taylor addressed him as the King back in the 80s and ever since after everyone stated the same he was the King. Nicki is being called by the fans not the industry or culture itself

      • Farrah August 9, 2018

        Lmfao H**, MJ is a bad exemple matter of fact it was his team who called him “The King of Pop” in the memorandums given to the press ahead of the release of Dangerous (album).
        But of course we all know his talented and consider him as the king!

        Here you have the full statement that was published in MNE magazine at that time (you can google it)

        “Black Or White’ Jackson’s electric first single from ‘Dangerous’ received a regal welcome. Any TV outlets that wanted to premiere the video had to pledge to call him ‘The King of Pop’, and MTV’s on-air staff were even sent a memo telling them to refer to him by this title at least twice a week. The horse-trading paid off, with around half a billion people watching the video’s unveiling.”

        Wow Farrah that was a clock lol

      • SMH August 9, 2018

        @ Farrah you’re wrong dear. Elizabeth Taylor was the first person to publicly call Michael “The King of Pop” when she presented him the Sammy Davis Jr. Award for Entertainer of the Year at the 1988 Soul Train Awards. His team was not involved. You can Google that too.

    • Erica August 9, 2018

      Well Nicki was mad with cardi for not recognizing her accomplishments so yeah

    • GIRLBYE August 9, 2018

      Bet you were going YASSS and clapping and praising when Nicki was fake crying about being “hurt” by Cardi when truly she was just bitter.
      There is MANY interviews where Nicki refuses to name Kim by name.

    • Caleb August 9, 2018

      tbh she sounded the exact opposite of bitter.

    • @Kurtz August 10, 2018

      I don’t know what you watched but she controlled the narrative and she said she sized her well. ??‍♂️ She always supports female rappers and new artists she’s close with Cardi And always supported her. Ol girl knows what she did is true though!

  2. Ashanti August 9, 2018

    Lil Kim DID THAT

  3. China August 9, 2018

    HARDCORE is a classic. Nothing ol girl has done will have the Iconic status of HARDCORE. Each track was blazin, she spit PURE fire

    • Fancy BISH August 9, 2018

      The FACTS of LIFE lol ☕️ ??

    • Meme August 9, 2018

      Hardcore is only a classic because of the time it was release. If lil Kim releases that exact same music today y’all would be calling it garbage.

      No, Nicki Minaj doesn’t have classics, her career is too new to get to classic. The same way nothing Beyonce ever release apart from DCs music is classic.

      • China August 9, 2018


      • BYISI August 9, 2018

        If Beyonce doesn’t have any classics then Rihanna most definitely doesn’t have any. DIL,Bday,IASF(an album that continues to keep finding it’s way back on to the billboard 200, almost a decade after its release).
        I don’t think you know what a classic is exactly.

        Hardcore is a classic! It was the long awaited solo debut album from Lil Kim! It changed the image of female rap and left a lasting impression on its genre for decades now.

        Hardcore is indeed a classic. You don’t get to throw events away because you weren’t there to experience them. I’m not surprised though. The things that frequent this site still think Tinashe is going to magically become a force in mainstream and that Ciara is on the same level of Rihanna and Beyoncé.?

      • Ashanti August 9, 2018

        How did you make this about Beyonce? wow you’re obsessed.

    • @Kurtz August 10, 2018

      Hardcore is a classic! If it came out now or then FACTS END OF! ? ?

  4. RihtheAVONqueen August 9, 2018

    Aww this is why kim will always be that girl! Queen of hip hop for sure!

    • Something New August 9, 2018

      U calling Kim plastic and what the hell is Nicki and her bucket of parts made from as well. Nicki’s karma is biting her right in her caulk filled ass.

      • Queen Missy ?? August 9, 2018

        Ole fix-a-flat a*** is experiencing KARMA. Peasant will flopppppp.

      • Faf August 9, 2018

      • ??? August 9, 2018

        lmaooo bissh bye, Barbie has less plastic & rubber cement in her than that botched science project who hasn’t been relevant since bill clinton was president. u tried it tho lmfaoooo

      • Caleb August 9, 2018

        @ ??? I didn’t know Bill Clinton was President in 2003 when The Jump Off and Magic Stick were burning up the charts.

    • Beam Me Up Scotty August 9, 2018

      At least Nicki can fix her ass if she wants to. Lil Kim, on the other hand, had to go mess with her face because men were telling her she was ugly. She should just release “Thriller 2”.

  6. Ricko August 9, 2018

    The real ? Queen

  7. Beam Me Up Scotty August 9, 2018

    Just last month, Lil Kim pulled a Mariah Carey with “I don’t know her”.
    Nicki said it best back in 2010: “Nobody was playin your music and you damn sure couldn’t get an interview to save your life. You getting interviews and every time you do interviews they’re asking you about Nicki Minaj.” No one gives a s*** about Lil Kim anymore. All they care about is the beef. Lil Kim ended her own career.

    • blaah August 9, 2018

      More fuel to the Nicki hate train. ?You just don’t learn, do you?

      • Beam Me Up Scotty August 9, 2018

        Queen 8-10-18 get your life

    • Caleb August 9, 2018

      Delusional and now everyone is bringing up Cardi B in Nicki Minaj interviews.

      • Beam Me Up Scotty August 9, 2018

        How to expect Card B to stand the test of time without knowing how to write her own verses or change up her flow? Nicki Minaj can’t be replaced overnight, just like Lil Kim was not replaced overnight. Also, Nicki Minaj is handling this situation better than Lil Kim.

      • Caleb August 9, 2018

        @ Beam Me Up Scotty
        She may very well not stand the test of time. But no she didn’t handle it that well with how she went on that interview crying about how Cardi doesn’t show her enough “genuine love.”

  8. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ August 9, 2018

    Kim doesn’t know ol girl.. she doesn’t know her. Let me know Queen Bee

  9. Lana Del fan August 9, 2018

    I’m with Kim. Same with asking female artists about Beyoncé. Just stop! Let an artist have their shine

  10. DanYiel Iman August 10, 2018

    Kim’s been named Queen of Rap since “1994” nothing Tricki Garbagh has done seals the deal as her being a queen of ANYTHING!! She’s a fraud and most folks know that!! What song by her has been placed to where she can keep performing it and receive the love Lil’Kim gets when she performs???”Bzzz”?
