The fans of both Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim have been at odds for years defending the qualities of both rap stars, but Nicki Minaj has given Lil’ Kim her props for her influence in music and fashion in an interview.
Minaj has also hit up many blogs in the last month unlike other artists of her stature. It appears she is in full album mode and is ready to drop heat for the summer. She hinted that fans can expect the album in a few months.
The rap star sat down with Joe Budden and gave some new revelations on topics that included hip hop legend Lil’ Kim. She believes that the fashion world has been impacted by the styles of Lil’ Kim and herself. She believes the two of them have not been truly recognized in the fashion industry for their influence. The same for the music industry.
“The same way I feel like I should have already been on the cover American Vogue, so should Lil Kim. If we being all the way a thousand,” she said, adding that the publication prides itself on how influential it is in the first place. “When myself or Lil Kim goes on the internet, every day we see our influence,” she continued. “We will see our influence so I’m not going to say it’s about me only, right? And not give that woman her just due about what she did.”

This definitely not the first time. A lot of y’all clearly been living under a rock. Go back to Nicki earlier interviews…she was giving Kim her props then and still is.

Y’all are the narrative kings and queens! Everyone knows how the beef started and it wasn’t Lil Kim because all the sub diss tracks came before Black Friday 2011. Roman’s revenge came before Black Friday but she flipped the narrative to she hit them with Roman’s Revenge 🤦🏽♂️😂 pic.twitter.com/KUgjEQ71Pd
