Crush On You: Lil Kim’s Most Notorious Beefs (Pg. 6)
Opponent: Nicki Minaj
Cause: After watching Nicki’s dramatic rise to fame, Kim felt like Young Money’s leading lady wasn’t giving her the props she deserves. So she dissed her during a concert with Ray J. “All females that come in the game, we need to stick together,” she said recently. “But what happens is they come in the game and realize that I’m not going away and my fans are still here and that they can’t just step over me…All I ask for is respect and I show you the same respect.”
Outcome: Nicki has largely ignored Kim’s taunts to this point. But Drake hasn’t.
Winner: It might be Kim and it might be Nicki—but it’s certainly not Drake. Why are you getting involved in this, son?!
Cause: To try and get Nicki Minaj’s attention, Kim also licked off a few shots at former mentor Diddy recently. “Ay, Puffy should be ashamed of his fuckin’ self!” she yelled during a show in Baltimore before bringing out Baltimore rapper Keys the Problem to drop a diss track about Minaj.
Outcome: Diddy—who gave Nicki a huge cosign earlier this year—has refused to reply to Kim thus far.
Winner: Diddy. Because don’t you realize that Diddy always wins?
