The R & B legend Usher caused quite a stir online when he made a comment about iconic female rappers Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim. It had to do with possible match ups for future showdowns of the popular Instagram series “Versuz” held by Timbaland and Swizz Beatz. During a conversation with Swizz Beatz after the Nelly vs Ludacris battle on Saturday May 16th.
Swizz mentioned that he’s seen a lot of Lil Kim vs. Nicki requests, which Usher disagreed with, saying Nicki is a product of Kim. Familiar with the ruthless behavior of the Barbz, Swizz Beatz responded, “You’re already trending on Twitter right now.”
The fans of Nicki Minaj did not take the comment well and began to roast the R & B icon.
Usher wanna claim Nicki is a product of Kim…but who was he paying for features again? That’s wtf I thought pic.twitter.com/TRluBQm8ok

LisaRaye McCoy has found herself to be the target of irate fans. She appeared on Out Loud with Claudia Jordan to acknowledge the path that Lil’ Kim made for females in the rap industry. After Claudia Jordan clarified that Usher didn’t say anything negative about Nicki Minaj, LisaRaye chimed in. “We can all stand together queens and we can all say that all of us are acknowledging the fact that Kim came before Nicki Minaj,” LisaRaye said. “So Nicki, just take a seat. You don’t have to sit down for long, but just take a bow. Just like Beyoncé said, ‘Bow down b*tches.”

Dear Lisa raye. Nicki Minaj does not owe lil Kim a damn thing. She paid her homage years ago to lil Kim and to the other mc’s that inspired her. She re lit the torch and is cemented as a legend. Y’all speak so highly of lil Kim yet don’t stream or buy her music. Stfu pic.twitter.com/4PWJ409hdb
