Lil Kim Speaks On Nicki Minaj, Album Plans

With the Minaj/Kim feud warming up, Lil Kim says she is focusing on singles and that she is not at fault for the beef.

Wrapped up in label speculations, a feud with Nicki Minaj and Diddy, Lil Kim has been at the center of it all. Now, the former first lady of the Junior M.A.F.I.A. is speaking on her new label deal, one thought to be with Jay-Z's Roc Nation, and her quarrels with Young Money's Minaj. In an interview with The Chicago Tribune, Kim also shed light on her new album, saying she isn't focusing on it.

"I'm not really focusing on a new album," she told the Tribune this Saturday. "I'm focusing more on singles. I'm dropping a single in July. I'm going to keep dropping singles until I think fans are ready for an album."

As for those Roc Nation rumors, she wouldn't confirm the reports.

"There are a lot of offers on the table right now. It's not a done deal," she noted.

When talk turned to her new album, Kim said she's not in it for attention.

"I never like that (attention)," Kim noted, saying she had waved a white flag when she worked on a song with Minaj and Baby. "Here's the thing. I did a record with them, and we were supposed to do a video. They didn't want her to stand next to me, so they pulled the record back. And you know, basically they pinned it on me...They didn't want to do it. My thing was, I waved the white flag. I wanted to do the song."

    You people apparently don't know your hip hop. Go to youtube and type in nicki minaj on the Come Up Show. She had a ratty, wirey weave, dirty plastic bangles, and these long black crow nails, swagger jackin' Foxy rhyming to Lil Kim's "Jump-Off" beat and more evidence she SWAGGER-JACKED the Queen and came at her neck first was when she redid "Warning" 2007. Everything about her is fake including the CDs that the Young Money click had to buy to put her somewhat on the charts. But how you have an album called "Pink Friday" but it was released on a Monday? BTW, she lied about talking to Foxy about Lil Kim. Foxy said so from her own lips. So lame. My money is on Kim and Keys!!!

    well 1ST of all nicki anit even from trinidad and she says she hailing all the way from Trinidad lol!. she's hailing from trinidad but why if she is from trinidad; indo-trini's have long hair, she wear wigs?? i mean your hair suppose to be long girl stop playing u american girl! but she is very different in the lyrics, if she really hailing from trinidad let me brake it down 4 yall where are the trini slangs like "what d muddah cunt" ,"bachannal".where is the "soca" in her rap.i mean no collabo with machel montano,denise belfon or even Bunji just to name a few. But I must say her Rap iz good. just sit down and wonder, how she really sounds live! would it be worth your money?. somebody please tell me ! YEAH

      I am Trini and I Dougla blood and other family that is so , you should shut you mouth mudacunt. Not all mix people look the same, we just dont craw out of the womb designed to certain specifications. I pray that you are an American it would allow me some comfort to know that my people are not so damn ignorant.

    • Kevin LaShawn

      -_- You're so stupid. Nicki had long hair since day one. Check out anything she did in 2007-2009

  • Shaytan

    Amazed how everyone is taking up for Nicki. You are a blogger. As Cease said " They See Things Different".. Where were all the bloggers when Nicki was coming at Lil Mama.. Amazing how she killed Lil Mama in 2.3 Seconds Yet She hasn't responded to Keys, Lil Kim, Foxy Etc. Nicki should keep the "Barbie" gimmick because She doesn't want to play with the " Big Girls"

      "yo, all I do is win aint that the reason that you really mad undisputed hailing all the way from Trinidad I aint mad Ma, I see you with your bummy swag I’m in that money green Jag lot of money bags, I told Khaled that you the best but I’m the bestest better run for cover if your name is on my checklist you can talk slick all the way down to the welfare as the IRS b-tch I’m paying for your healthcare" Where in any of these lyrics did Nicki kill Keys, Antonio? Try again. Keys killed Nicki's whole album with just a couple youtube videos. So sad now this lady (Onika Mirage aka Nicki) is paying fans to back her? Lame-O!!!!!

    • suzie q

      actually, that song wasn't even about lil mama in the first place... it was recorded months before lil mama made an ass out of herself. if you listen to nicki records you'd know the use of "lil mama" is consistent throughout her work.

    • Antonio

      Well, actually she did respond to Keys lyrically. In the All I Do is Win Remix that whole verse was for Keys.

    • TheMrsx.

      Well honestly no one actually proved Nicki threw a shot at Lil Mama...why would she have beef with that little girl & Nicki doesn't respond to the beef because she is way better than that!

  • kiley

    i think that kim is jealous of minaj, because when she brought out the colored wigs nobody really took her serious, and to now just see that nicki is killing the wigs and saying raps and everybody liking her is making her upset. its not nicki's fault that the game is changing and becoming more flexible. and the homage thing, nicki has already paid it...kim just want to hear her name be spread around....nicki is doing the womanly thing about the situation and not responding, but if kim really did have a problem over something so stupid, then she should talk to nicki and not try to make it seem like she a swagger jacker...!!!

    • kurt

      what the fuck you say nick was killing wig stop lil kim was the first lady to do the wig and makeing a killing. so stop sick nick dick. Nicki went to be ilke kim from thing she said in her song, and her imag

    • MalcolmLittle

      "and to now just see that nicki is killing the wigs and saying raps and everybody liking her is making her upset." ^^^ This everybody you speak of, exactly who would that be? Cuz the only people I know that rock with her are kids (like they really need THAT as an influence) and the grown broads without brains. I don't know a single person with any sense that fucks with her in any way, shape or form. That ain't hatin either, just statin facts. There's a huge difference. ;)

    • Big Liss

      LMAO @ Plies being real. How is he real? If he's "Good Affiliated" then why are all his songs for the ladies? He wearing a ski mask on the cover of his album and he got a bunch of love songs on that shit. Nigga please. He's the Southern Ja Rule without the singing. He at least has sense enough to get other niggas to sing his hooks.

  • LisaLiz05

    Minaj is just one BIG copycat of lil Kim. Lil Kim first dropped shit on nigga's like a white on rice, now that she all old and fucked up in the face, they got this sloppy hoe to act like her. Fuck, lil Kim messed up with all that pastic shit. I think Minaj is just collecting on her fuck up. That's what the game is. Lil Kim is just trying to capatalize too. Big Up's lil Kim, I still got yo 1st album. You always the first, realist baddest bitch of the female rapping game. All them other chicks just... rollin wit what you started. Thanks for showing us females that we can be ladies, but fuck like niggas too! That's whats up!!!!

      Whyyyyyyyyyy so many people are interested in an interracial relationship. black woman want to have fun with white man and black guys want to have fun with white women. There are many sites focusing on this kind of relationships such as ==== B_l_a_c_k_w_h_i_t_e_C_u_p_i_d . c_o_m ===== recommend it here ==== B_l_a_c_k_w_h_i_t_e_C_u_p_i_d . c_o_m =====

    • Jayyarr

      Agreed Bahahah

    • OTAY
