Eve Speaks On Nicki Minaj & Lil' Kim Beef, New Album

Ruff Ryders' First Lady is working with Salaam Remi on "Lip Lock" and is five songs away from its completion.

Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim have been sparring for a minute, and Eve doesn’t like it. The “Pit Bull in a Skirt” weighed in on the war of words between the two MCs, explaining that Kim needs to stop fueling the fire and instead focus on bettering her career.

“I need her to stop. If I was Kim’s friend, I’d be like, yo. Because she’s Kim, period. So she never has to feed. She shouldn’t,” she told BBC Radio 1Xtra. “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. So that’s it.”

She also gave props to Nicki for holding it down for the ladies in the rap game. “I love it. 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 hip-hop game.”

The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native gave an update on her oft-delayed album Lip Lock, revealing that she’ll be dropping her new single “Mama’s in the Kitchen” featuring Swizz Beatz in the next few weeks.

“I did another record called ‘Mama’s in the Kitchen’ with Swizz that is ridiculous. In the next couple of weeks, I’ma let this burn for a minute and then I’m going to drop that record,” she said.

She is also working with Salaam Remi on the album and is five songs away from completing the album. “I’m working with Salaam Remi, who if you know music, Salaam is major, major, major,” she said. “I went in with MSTRKRFT, I don’t know if people know who MSTRKRFT are, I went in with them. I’m busy. I got like five more records to do and then I’m done with the record.”

    Eve can spit. I'll admit that Nicki minaj killed it on that Kanye Monster jam, but everything else ive heard it garbage. I miss the days of real female mc's like Heather B, Hurricane G, Rah Digga, L-Boogie (when she rhymed), Da Brat, Missy, MC Lyte, even Latifah can spit better then Nicki. It's time for Jean Grae to come show these ladies how to rhyme.

    people are entitled to their own opinions but you shouldnt call someone the worst rapper or mc when people like soulja boy gonna play the part of juice...mine as well cast a tellytubby

    Nicki Minaj sucks hardcore and everyone knows it. Most people consider her contribution to hip hop an abomination of the highest degree. Basically, she is the female version of Drake. Despite the oversaturation of her wack ass lyrics in hip-hop, her reputation as a rapper is comparable to Vanilla Ice and the freecreditreport.com guys.

  • Bang her

    Damn, I always wanted to fuck her in the ass & the pus for that matter, I bet she can gooble up cock & balls, & you know she can ride a dick, I would just like to fuck her so hard, dang

  • Chris8282

    *looks at pic of Eve* Didn't she used to be African?

  • Gene

    I respectfully disagree with Eve, love her and am glad that she is coming back, but lets be real here, Nicki is the worst MC in the game right now and she is a gimmick, not so real MC and the game is a mess right now and young folks don't know or want to know real hip hop.

    • I just fucked you with words.

      Theres nothing about Nicki that is a gimmick, and calling her "the worst mc in the game" is a fictitious crack that absolutely cannot be backed up. The hate is misplaced and fallacious. Just listen to her bars, you have no argument against her skills as a rapper/MC. You may hate her but pretend its because your ear for skill is so advanced, she can rap very well. maybe you hate because of her looks or her success. Whatever the reason, it does not matter. Hip hop is still hip hop, and the kids (me included) know what hip hop is. Neither of you, nor any hater for that matter, can back up your "gimmick" claims with any relevant proof or response anyway. That dig is such a cowardice cop out. Nicki is doing more for women in hip hop than kim ever did. Kim was a good female MC, Nicki is a good MC. You two don't know the difference and probably cant even explain what a "real MC" is, and hating on a chick who is trying to create a better place for women in hip hop shows your ignorance toward the entire culture.

      Nicki is a good rapper. She created her own buzz in 3 mix tapes. She's keeping Female Rap alive.

    • K:O:S

      You calling Nicki a MC??? And you talking about young people don't know real Hip Hop?!!! Nicki is a wack rapper at best!!! NOT A MC!!! Very few rappers are MC's! Most of em don't deserve that title at all! But yep she is a fuckin' gimmick!

  • Jadakiss88

    Eve don't give prop to talent-less rappers just because they are female. You hung with some of the hottest spitters in the industry and you give Nicki Props for the garbage she consistently puts out...really!!! She's a walking, talking, gimmick, and she is one of the reasons why so many of your young women are going under the knife or being injected with trash so they can look like her. Not to mention she has no individual appeal because she is a wayne in a dress. Her lyrics are horrible yet you support her...sad day in hiphop

  • milehighkid303

    These old school female MC's are wildin'. I messed with ALL the female artists, Eve, Foxy, Lauryn Hill, Kim, Erika Bydu, etc. All of these women stood for something and held the shit down. HOW IN GOD'S NAME can these women give props to Nicki?? SHE HAS NO BAR STRUCTURE, no real pen game, no flow, no approach to the mic and these women she's being compared to....RAPPED IN CIRCLES WITH THE LIKES OF BIG, DMX, NAS, PAC, JAY Z, TALIB, etc. NOT NO LIL FREAKING WAYNE OR DRAKE, OR TYGA, OR WHOEVER ELSE ALL YOU 90'S BABYS BUMP. FUCK HIP HOP STRAIT UP, MUSIC IS WATERED DOWN LAME AND TAKES NO TALENT NOWADAYS JUST SEE THE FUCKIN RADIO. PEACE AND ONE LOVE.

  • carla

    To me Eve's first and second albums were good. The ones after was where she fell off. Wonder what she's creating. I do agree with what she said about Kim. I can see if the beef was personal but Kim is crying about a style she thinks she started. Silly.

  • hek718

    ummm who are you again?!! "If I was Kims friend" I guess you really dont support the ladies. Eve is okay at best. What songs can yall remember of hers besides What yall niggas want...
