When Nicki Minaj’s new track, “Roman’s Revenge” featuring Eminem, hit the Internet late last month, many speculated whether a few lines — in which she disses a female rapper — was aimed at Lil Kim.
On the track, Nicki’s spits: “Word, that bitch mad ’cause I took the spot?/ Well, bitch, if you ain’t sh**tin’, then get off the pot/ Got some n****s out in Brooklyn that’ll off your top.”
The Young Money recording artist denied the bars were for Kim specifically, and instead, said they were directed toward anyone who’s ever dissed her.
“I’m talking about everyone who has been in interviews talking,” Minaj told DJ Khaled during a recent interview on 99 Jamz in Miami. “No one is worth having their name mentioned out of my mouth and they never will get that. But you know, I’ve been quiet for such a long time, I’ve been the nice guy, I’ve been the person that gave everybody their props. I complemented everybody from day one and I think that as a rapper, you can’t be a rapper and not speak on things being said about you. So, I use my music to say what I have to say.”
Kim doesn’t seem to be buying it, and during a performance at Queens nightclub Pure on Friday (November 5), she took a break out to address Nicki.
“I will erase this bitch’s social security number,” Kim says in footage of the concert. “First of all, I don’t even need a record right now and I’d kill that bitch with my old sh**. My records ain’t just enter the charts, they made history. What the f*** is this bullsh**, this sh** come and go!”
Although the Brooklyn MC doesn’t name Nicki by name, her distaste for Lil Wayne’s artist has been documented. In several past interviews, Kim has throw shots toward Minaj, accusing her jacking her style and failing to respectfully acknowledge her.
“Here’s my thing, all females that come in the game, we need to stick together, and I always try my best to embrace them,” Kim said in a June radio interview. “But what happens is, when they come in the game and they realize that I’m not going away and my fans are still here and they can’t just step on me, they get upset and then they’d don’t want to be my friend anymore. I think that’s really childish and stupid. Because all I ask for is respect, and I show the same respect back. Pay homage, at the end of the day a lot of things go on behind the scenes that people don’t know about. It will be aired out, because you can’t hide the truth.”
