Eve doesn’t like how the Lil’ Kim/Nicki Minaj beef is playing out.
The former Ruff Ryder MC stopped by Tim Westwood’s BBC Radio 1xtra show recently in the UK where she weighed in on the feud.
“I need her to stop,” she said of Kim. “It’s bad. It’s not a good look. If I was her friend, I’d tell her, yo, just come back bigger and better. The best way to get at people is to do you better than you’ve ever done you.”
While the Philly native had a few choice words for the Queen Bee, she also touched on the male-dominated world of hip-hop and her appreciation for the Harajuku Barbie. “You know, it’s definitely a nice group of females that’s out representing, but because I come from hip-hop, I need more females in hip-hop,” she continued. “Nicki definitely is holding the flag down, and a lot of people be wanting me to hate just because that’s how girls supposed to do in hip-hop, but I’m loving everything she does. But we need more females, man. There’s too much testosterone in the game.”
The “Who’s That Girl” artist was overseas to attend the Gumball 3000 rally in London. Bun B joined her in the 3000-mile race that will take the rappers across 10 countries ending up in Istanbul, Turkey. Next up for E-V-E is her fourth studio album, due out later this year. —Nicole LoPresti
