Eve Says Lil’ Kim “Needs to Stop” Beefing With Nicki Minaj

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

    Agreed. Lil Kim needs to stop frontin’…. This chicks are acting like cannabals. Do you. Load your clip on artists that deserve it.

    On the other front….

    Damn Eve! You ain’t dropped nothing since you went all hollywood on a nigga. And the singles you did drop were shelved. I guess you fell for that Dr. Dre fools-gold too, huh…

    Just get along and get $ gUaP $ together. That’s all it is. Dat long $ gUaPeY $ =)

    Eve is absolutely right, it’s not a good look for Kim. As the more established emcee she has nothing to gain from her ongoing attacks on Nicki Minaj. The best course of action would’ve been to begin building up her buzz. Doing so through Nicki only puts her in a position where her worth is determined by Nicki. And as the more established artist, that’s not in a position she should be in.

  • mav

    I think eve should of kept her mouth shut..it looks like she just wanna play nice wit minaj to see if she can getta collabo nicki can put together but her transform to a gutta dike bitch wit hood bars to that pink friday superbass type shit is enough to make any Rap fan dislike her a lil bit kim is waaay better than salt n pepa too…them bitches was wack mclyte and latifah are all right..but kim is probbly the most respected among male hip hop heads and not just because she nasty and her quiet storm rmx verse is better than 90% of the shit these rappers spit male or female…

  • Jerm

    This reminds me of what Pimp C was saying about all those beefs that were happening in the south…Theyre making too much money to be beefing, they should put that energy into making music together and everybody wins.

    Jumping on Nicki’s bandwagon is not gonna get you a verse Eve sorry. Nice try though but it’s not gonna work.

  • Allithia

    Nice, the comments are hillarious. I feel as though this whole young money crew IS being shoved down our throat. They have great business strategies though, and even better timing. I mean the game has gone from a sub-culture to a big business. Even white “supremicist” children are rapping and break-dancing. I have more disdain for that than anything. Rap beefs sell records. We all want to hear what the fem fatales have to say. I sound old I know cause I am.

    Nicki was the first female rapper to have more songs on the Billboard top 100′s then any female rapper . Lil kim had her spotlight but now shes gone i dont see any teenage kids obsessing over her like they do for nicki.
