Lil’ Kim’s Beef With Nicki Minaj Intensifies

Lil’ Kim is nuts. And I don’t mean it in that all-women-over-a-certain-age-are-crazy way. I mean I actually have concerns about her sanity. Over the past little while, her obsession with Nicki Minaj has been getting out of control. First there was the diss song “Black Friday.” Then there was the mixtape and corresponding music video. And now, in her latest anti-Nicki gesture, Kim has released Carbon Copy, a short “documentary exposé about crazed fans with record deals.”

Much like the singular theme of her entire anti-Nicki stance, the premise of Carbon Copy is that Nicki is a swagger-jacker. A series of (poorly edited) montages and audio clips is supposed to demonstrate just how much Nicki has been influenced by Kim, both in her raps and her style. Duh. That’s fairly obvious, and Nicki has admitted as much in public. But, apparently, knowing that isn’t enough for Kim, who is upset that Nicki once cited Lauryn Hill as an influence in an interview. Maybe it’s the same sort of bitterness and sense of impending old age I feel when I see 17-year-olds on the train who are way cooler than I am.

Seriously, though. At this point, it’s not even a battle or a competition anymore. Either Nicki Minaj should be concerned about her safety, or it’s just tired, desperate way for Kim to keep her name in the rap blogs. TC mark

    Shout out to Salt N Pepa, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Lauryn Hill and Mary J. They never have to diss an up and becoming artist for attention. Kim is a loser.

    Kim!- I remember in 1996, when Kim would match her hair to her outfits, and talk in a very cute, valley girl, baby voice, while showing off her ass- EXACTLY what Nicki Minaj is doing now- Minus the Rap, Free-styling, Attitude AND the Real Love for what she does, and her fans.

    Minaj is giving HERSELF credit for the progression the RAP INDUSTRY has made over the past 10 years, and in the integration of psuedo counter-culture into the main stream. In reality, she's just another pop star.

    this is an illuminati agenda, they both have one thing in common, they are puppets. minaj is obviously the next lil kim, that's the way the music industry works. think about how many other 'black barbies' their are. plus, maybe lil kim is having some sort of midlife crisis?

    also, they both suck like shit. y'all need to listen to REAL rap.

    Could you write a part ii on what exactly Nicki Minaj IS doing with her style? one thing that seems true about this video is that multicolored hair and wearing costumes as Style is a very 1995-2005, Lil' Kim era fashion. So why would Nicki Minja be successful in coming out with a recently tired style?

    Is it meant to mock 2001? Must just be ironic, isnt it too recent to be ironic? Is it because her fans are too young to know what 2001 was like and they think its fresh?

    Lil Kim is wack as fuck and she needs to sit her troll looking ass down somewhere… Nicki Minaj got better flow and she looks a whole lot better than Kim…. Fuck that raggedy and retarded hoe.
