We knew it was just a matter of time before Lil Kim made reference to Nicki Minaj. Even though the jab was subliminal, during a recent performance in Buffalo, New York, Kim made reference to Minaj biting her wig-wearing style.
While rapping a verse from her 1997 single 'Crush on You,' Lil Kim abruptly pulled off her blonde wig and declared that she was over it. "I'm going to another level," she told the crowd. "I love the wigs and everything but I'm so above this. I'm so above this ... I'll be back!"
Since gaining popularity for her colorful wigs and clever flow, Minaj has been garnering several comparisons to Lil Kim who was known for rocking a similar look. In a possible response to Lil Kim, the 25-year-old, who also just wrapped up an appearance in Buffalo, posted an interesting message on her Twitter page Thursday (June 3). "Raise ya hand if u don't have 2 diss ppl to feel better about urself," she wrote. "Jealousy is a disease. It kills @ a fast pace. Kisses 2 my bad b----es."
Although Minaj has yet to call out Lil Kim specifically, the Queens native credits several female rappers as her inspiration of how not to be. "The female rappers of my day spoke about sex a lot," she told Vibe Magazine. "I thought that to have the success they got, I would have to represent the same thing. When in fact I didn't have to represent the same thing."
Minaj's debut is set to drop later this year, while Kim is also said to be working on new music.
