Lil’ Kim Explains How Beef With Nicki Minaj Originated

Will it ever end?

On Thursday (May 17), during an interview with New York City’s Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, Lil’ Kim attempted to explain what she thought was the origin of the beef between her and Nicki Minaj.

“Me and Slim were friends for four years, and we decided we were going to do business together,” Kim explained. “I was over there at Cash Money, and I was getting ready to be partners with him. When I was over there, we were working a lot. I was in Miami and he would put me in the studio.”

Although a deal never resulted out of the talks, Kim did indeed record a song called, “Grinding Makin’ Money,” which featured Birdman and Minaj. The track was supposed to appear on Baby’s 2009 album, Priceless, but when it didn’t make the final cut, Kim claims that’s when Minaj got “catty” with her.

“The problem with her is, she was very catty with it,” Kim said of Nicki. “I never had a problem with her. I was always nice with her. Always. She was a very obnoxious person, but I was very nice with her. From the time I saw her in that dressing room, the story she told, I don’t even know what the heck she was talking about.

“After that whole Cash Money situation with the song, we’re at Justin’s birthday party,” added Kim, referring to the young son of Diddy. “Perfect time to come up and say, ‘Hey, we did the song together.’ Nothing. And she looked at me and rolled her eyes, and I was like, really? Every single record she made was coming at me.”

Minaj is currently on tour in Australia.—Jakinder Singh
