Nicki Minaj Warns Lil’ Kim: “You Gotta be Careful When You Pick Fights”

It looks like listeners were right all along. While interviewing with Angie Martinez during Hot 97’s VIP Lounge earlier today (November 19), Nicki Minaj finally admitted the target for her collaboration with Eminem, “Roman’s Revenge” is in fact Lil’ Kim.

“You gotta be careful when you pick fights,” Minaj said, referring to the Queen Bee. “That’s what I’ve learned in this business. I think people mistake me for a real Barbie and forget where I’m from. They forget where I’m from. And if I have to revert back, I can and I will.”

Nicki’s debut album, Pink Friday, which features “Roman’s Revenge” hits stores on Monday (Novmeber 22). —Amber McKynzie

    • pap3rchazer

      yall speak highly of lil kim like she was a great “MC”….

      • hahahahaa

        HUGE portions of lil kims stuff was not written by her. I ain’t hatin on the queen, but at keast Nicki writes her shit

    • I’m like hell yea

      FINALLY SOMEONE WITH SOME TRUTH.

    • yrugagging

      Girl you wont do nothing just calm down

  • lmfao

    Kim was hot because BIGGIE wrote her raps… Listen to her shit NOW… ooppss… Did she kill the queen???????????

  • Enlightened

    Fuck that corny ass broad and all this shit. First, she say “there’s no one person worth her writing a song about.” Didn’t want to admit it.

    Then her publicist, or whoever, tells her to go ahead and say it because it will sell the album. Now, she wants to talk tough. I hate all these corny Hollywood muthafuckas.

    Bitch tried to talk in 6 different voices on the awards and that shit was awkward as hell. Nobody was laughing and she came off like a fuckin clown. I can’t wait until her album drops so the clock can officially start on her bullshit 15 minutes of fame.

    How can anybody even take this bitch serious. Fuck Nicki Minaj man, seriously.

  • NewYork

    Who the fuck does this chick think she is? Nick Minaj is the biggest fraud on the planet. Look how much surgery she’s had. Booty implant and shit. Fuck outta here. Kim is a hiphop legend. You won’t even got platinum how

    • http://XXLMAG.COM Rob Markman

      And Kim never had plastic surgery?!? I’m crying foul here. lol

  • http://www.myspace.com/slotchmusic ms_spittuh

    lol. this bitch is just mad because her own borough got more love for kim than her overly confused ass. i have no issues with barbie or even collecting them. not an issue, but i don’t think mrs. barbara millicent roberts support this hooker barbie. out of all my years of growing up to barbie, i have never seen one thats as atrocious as this one. nicki, YOU ARE NOT A BARBIE. BITCH YOU’RE A CHRISTIE…. (lol)

  • audio tech

    damn most ya’ll niggaz sound butt-hurt over these two chicks fighting..i say we grease ‘em both up, put them in a ring with they bday suit and enjoy the festivities.

    • MI

      word. “bring out the chicks and let’s have a mud fight.”-gza
      ah, lil kim was someone to look at and think about f^cking, all her material ghost written by biggie (benz or miata, this honey got a/sweet pinata), and she is know for being a good criminal and not snitiching. her last hit was “magic stick” which 50 put together. it’s not like nicki is dissing a real mc like jean grae, mc lyte, rah digga, rage. she’s a pop artist with her own thing going on, and in this case, it actually is hate.

    please….er-body knows that Nik NastyBizzy is bi-polar and a Skitzo! How you gona have ass from the back BUT not the side view….they both need to “DO” themselves and leave eachother out of bullshit. Nik probly wanta rub Kim ‘s “lil” anyway with her butch-lookin ass.

  • teezy

    ok so who’s it gonna be Lil Kim or Nicki Minaj?(vs)
    I got 50($) on Nicki

  • Deezy80

    It’s crazy how a bunch of dudes are getting mad because a female is speaking her mind. fuck wrong with you Niggaz?!!

  • jburg

    You niggas on here talking like Lil Kim is the best bitch smokin’! That bitch hasn’t been hot in a decade! I ain’t even a Nicki fan but she was speaking the truth. If you listen to the whole interview she had some valid points. Lil Kim is just a hater and mad that Nicki got a lil shine going and she can’t buy a hit. Kim been played out. Her “reign” is over and she can’t stand it.

  • No Name

    Okay…and I’m still waiting to see what she said in reference to Kim herself. SMH. I hate when these columnist blow simple shit like this outta proportion and only add unneeded fuel to the fire. Major fail, son.

  • sealsaa

    Fuck both of them (literally(from the back, ZING!) and figuratively), but Kim hasn’t been relevant for almost a decade now. Her “Dancing with the Stars” stint solidified her has-been status, and the fact that she would let Ray J of all people gas her head up…

    Besides that, she’s got some serious self-esteem issue, what with all that fucked up plastic surgery she’s had done, and the temper tantrum she had over Naturi Naughton playing her in that Biggie movie(because she was too dark…*blank stare*)

    they should do a pay pre view battle and donate the money to the boys and girls club! at the end of the day kim has been real erelavent musically for a while and nikki is going dumb! im not a fan of either but i would do it to them both at the sametime!
    The blockstars!

  • brand-new

    ok, so this corporately manufactured artist nicki makes a obvious sublimanal diss record against a proven star, at who this corporate company is trying to rip off completely and BOOM! we’re all doing exactly what they intended for us to do, talk about it! she has a album dropping in 3 days!! can’t you all see this is a publicity stunt!? this as been done before! many times by many artists! support real music and not corporately manufactured bullshit, lets get it together hip-hop heads! if you don’t stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything

  • Tre

    @audio tech, CO SIGN!!!!!

    I don’t understand how Lil Kim can be argued as a great female MC, when she never wrote her own shit. Same goes for Foxy Brown. If you ever had a ghostwriter, I don’t even debate you as an mc whatsoever

  • http://www.xxlmag.com “Broadway Joe”

    Lil’ Kim > Nicki Minaj

  • T

    How about we forget about these two dumb whores and appreciate a real female rapper like Lauryn Hill?

    • shone jones

      Because Lauryn released any new material in over 12 years.

      And because she lost her ghostwriters.

  • TISHA

    Yes …Biggie wrote some of Kim’s stuff but SHE delivered it! This FAKE ass …FAKE tit …FAKE rapper is the physical manifestation of how F-UCK these HOUSE NIGGARS have allowed these DEVILS to do with OUR shit ….HIP HOP!

    NICKI is NOTHING more than another player in this MINSTREL show called RAP!

  • fuck yall

    man kims dope and i dout any one ghost wrote for her what big do come back from the dead and write every album i thank she got doper after her 1st album

  • El Tico Loco

    The first time I ever saw Nikki she was biting Kim’s album cover, probably paying homage and Kim ran with it to attract attention to herself since her last hit was “Lighters up” and she figured beef make for good pub. To be honest these rap chicks should stick together, make up, touch each other, and let us watch then I might listen without even having to like ya’ll songs.

  • masta

    she need to shut up 4real! she talking cash shit. anybody can talk but can she back up those words. if your gonna b women enough to say something once say it twice. when that diss song (if you wanna call it that) came out, she was talking to no certain person, now kim betta watch her back. bitch please from where im from if u say it best believe u betta back it up. this girl is trash, DL the album (dont give a fuck!!!!) and it was mediocore, lukewarm, straight trash. and that line holla at me when u on the billboard charts, again bitch please, i know u have internet so GOOGLE HER BITCH!! kimberly jones has been there done that. SMH @ these young’uns.

  • http://xxlmag.com Leroy Love

    Are female rappers even relevent? These diva mc’s are going to eventually be catering to Will Smith’s daughter. If you got a fan base thats not buying music, you aint gonna make no money. Willow is gonna be banking all the Nick Jr. heads and so on. In fact, who was the last female mc to go platinum? I’m thinking either Lil Kim or Eve, way back in the days.

  • pinky

    minaj writes her own stuff,,,lol who told you that steaming pile a BS, youve only gotta listen for a minute to hear lil wayne all over her shit, lets face it its not her lyrical prowess thats brought her to the forefront, rather who she knows and her charisma+ sex appeal, its nothing new but please lets not get it twisted, we all know its not a given that those who get the most airtime are the best lyricists, especially not nowadays, it is what it , big and kims musical collabo brought us some great music, ghostwriting is just another form of collaboration, which can result in some enjoyable ear candy, but hey i suggest we leave the plastic surgery issue alone with these two no one can take the high road with that lil ‘issue’ lol

  • unknown

    ms_spittuh a club full of crackheads, fuck i could even count them all it was like 10-12 people in there fuck, everyone who was in there was a fucking Nicki hatter so they can always stay,i am from queens and them ass hole don’t rep Jamaican Queens,so i don’t know wtf you are talking about,i wonder what video you was watching.

  • RicksDaRuler

    Real talk, Niki will murder Kim lyrically. I wasn’t a fan at first, but she grows on you.

  • xavier

    i dnt like nikki but she spazzed on kim give her some props for this her verses were better than em’s shes not better than kim but she went hard

  • Dallas

    Nicki talks like she has been in the game some time, this is probably her first “fight”. I still can’t seem to take her serious

  • Riktaa1982

    So Nicki needs Eminem on a track to kill lil kim only because she knows thats only way she can rap with someones help! whos gonna be on lil kims response??? and pick up beef? jadakiss, fat joe, the game????? it wont be kanye eminem or lil wayne obv. but jadakiss and kim i reckon will responde?? maybe with a biggie sample who shot ya maybe wat u peeps think??

  • KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

    BEEF SELLS RECORDS – UNDERSTAND THAT!

    DONT FALL FOR THAT SHIT MR AND MRS PUBLIC, THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TAKE YOU LOT FOR MUGS BECAUSE YOU LAP IT UP AND THEN SPEND ALL YOUR POCKET MONEY ON LINING THE POCKETS OF THESE SO CALLED RAPPERS – HAVE OF THEM DONT EVEN DESERVE THE MONEY YOU PAY THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE RATS UNDERNEATH THEIR FUR JACKETS

    YOU WOULDN’T BELIEVE THE AMOUNT OF TRICKS THEY HAVE UP THEIR SLEEVES TO MAKE MONEY OFF THE BACK OF OUR NAIVETY

  • NICKI SUCKS!!!

    Nicki is a joke, end of story. No ifs ands or buts. Straight joke.

  • http://www.citysocialites.com jane

    For all the people that thinks biggie writes the majority of kims rhymes are just plain dumb biggie died in 1997. I can see where he plays a significant role in her style but how is he writing her rhymes after 1997. ALL ARTISTS have ghost writers and I am sure they get points on the album check out ascap if u need a reference Lil Kim is not ballin out of control to pay major heavy hitters to write an entire album. Now as far as Nicki is concerned She is a GIMMICK. Lil kim is mad because when she gave her the hug in the mentioned photo/lil wayne concert she was not hugging a 2010 upgraded version of Lil Kim Circa Notorious Kim but a girl with her OWN IMAGE AND STYLE (check her style when she wasnt famous). She took the hardcore photo, she took the barbie (REFER TO HOW MANY LICKS VIDEO AND WAIT A MINUTE RAYJ FEAT LIL KIM), she even took the jungle sceen from MASSIVE ATTACK. Kim did that!

    Kim did the slanted bob in wait a minute… Kim did the multi- colored weaves people.

    This is not an issue about lyrical capabilites. NICKI HAS NO ORIGINALITY. The only thing shes doing different is acting like a Schitzo and if you ask me this chick needs to call 1-800 Charter for her identity crisis.

    Sure lil kim has had work done but so has Nicki and everyother chick in the industry SO WHAT. That has nothing to do with the issue at hand.

    People are throwin him under the bus but when remy came she had her own image, so did eve, so did missy, so did rah digga, so did trina, sheett so did khia……

    So Kim deserves respect in this situation…. besides she created this pretty shit and I dont see anyone throwin hov under the bus when he throws jabs at other artist!

    One more thing —- *kanye voice* Notorious Kim/ THE NAKED TRUTH AND HARD CORE WAS THE GREATEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME!

    I saw a dvd with nicki on it from before young money and to be honest with you she should have taken that image and perfected it….. but shes a gimmick created by the demons that drives this industry……When she runs out of gimmicks weaves and her marketing imagery lets see whats left

  • Thomas

    I never really understood rap beef. Too many rappers are concerned about what other rappers are doing or what they did and in the process lose focus on themselves and wind up selling 16K and wondering what went wrong. I’m not gonig to be on some quasi-KRS One stuff and call for “Unity”, but I’m tired of rappers trying to extend their stay in the rap game (which is short for most acts) by creating beef (in this case due to [ and rigfhtfully so] being compared to another act instead of being in the studio and actually creating music with legs that doesn’t relay too heavily on samples from super producers and features from the same people (Rhianna, T-Pain, Akon, etc.) that have been featured no less then 20 times on other songs in just the 1st quarter alone.

    Be creative Nicki. I’m not impressed with the 21st century Lil Kim gimmick.

  • alderman j

    I am old school, and i remember when KIM was the best FEMALE bar none, and better than some males, but come on people, NICKI is on another level. I would love for KIM to come back and crush NICKI with one song….. but it aint gone happen.

  • LosAngelesYaYalook

    I LOVE how everyone says Kim never wrote her own shit …yet who has actually stepped up and confirmed this? Black women are always looked down on. Are we that “crippled” in society to the point we supposedly cant do things for ourself? Because he raps are the shit, she must not have wrote them huh? Because she’s a woman or black woman? I dont get it. Why cant she have written her music? smfh. Disgusting ass muthaphyuckas I tell you. But you guys are sooooo sure Nicki writes hers also. Why not say ALL FEMALE RAPPERS HAVE GHOST WRITERS then?

  • WavaFlava

    LOL why doesn’t Lil’ Kim just fall off, Nicki has filled her role in hip hop, and hip hop is changing a lot, in the next five years we will be seeing many of the greats retiring, Kanye is gonna be takin’ Jiggas place obviously, Jay Elec is tha new Nas, and J.Cole is a little of both, when rappers become obsolete they are replaced. Queen Bee should just move on with life, she already made her mils.

  • TeamKim

    @lmfao ok biggie died in 97 and kim was still hot AFTER 1997 right or wrong? oh
