Lil Mama Claims Nicki Minaj "Imitated” Her Style

The "Lip Gloss" rapstress accuses the Young Money member of jacking her swag.

Lil’ Mama is making claims that Nicki Minaj has jacked her style in the past. Speaking with, the former Jive Records rapstress fielded a question about her taking the Harajuku Barbie’s haircut and rocking it at the MTV Movie Awards. According to Mama, it’s the other way around.

“My cut is blunt and futuristic and Nicki Minaj started wearing that bob on her head after she came to my show, so at the end of the day I know what I do and I know what I possess and I know who I am. I'm a trendsetter,” she said. “The biggest form of flattery is imitation so I'm flattered. I understand the universal law. I'm not confused, I don't feel like a follower. I started so many things that new artists are doing now anyway –my style, the way I'm aggressive on a track, the way I come through, the way my beat bangs. There are so many things that were borrowed, that I influenced that's happening in music right, so I'm far from discouraged.” 

Lil’ Mama claims that Nicki saw her haircut during a guest appearance on “America’s Best Dance Crew” and ran with the style.

“She was a guest on ‘America's Best Dance Crew’ and immediately afterwards, everywhere she went, she was wearing the haircut, the same exact way,” she continued. “But that doesn't make me feel like ‘Oh she's trying to be down’ like how I said about our culture. I'm actually flattered because she imitated me and it felt like something that I was doing was cute and in time for the fashion and for the season, so it's like let's live, let's do it.”

    first off why bow wow got a wig on? oh my bad that lil mama......well then secondly you accuse silicone ass Nicki of jacking your style??? what style? seriously i know you want some attention lil mama...but this is not it. Go back to school shorty. matter fact since you claim Nicki jacked your style...then you should find out who pumped her ass with silicone and see if they can hook you up....

    to me one of the saddest parts of this is that vibe actually did a WHOLE interview with this he/she. i remember when Vibe = greatness. smh

  • jamel

    lil mama is the ugliest, nastiest piece of trash this world has seen. Nicki is the sexiest thing this world has seen. So who gives a fuck who copyed whos style. Nicki does it better than that rat

  • Kaycee Dike Swizzson Blood


  • Simon Magus

    1 lil mama is a washed up pop act that ethered herself totally at the mtv awards by jumping on stage with Jay-Z and Aleysha keys EPIC FAIL. This should have let her know her level of celebrity was c list now she is around z. 2 she has a name like lil mama. That lil shit was over used and the only dude relavant with a lil title from that error is wayne. So change your name an make good music instead of reaching for some silly coincedent. You may have rocked the hair style first but she did it better and immortalized it besides if niki go broke she can do porn again she got the name for it(best porn name evaaaar in the female rap scene)

  • boogieAbernathy

    Who gives the sh!t bout lil mama or nicki minaj. its females like them as to why people dont take women serious in WHAT I USE TO CALL HIP HOP before it DIED!!!!

  • George Lafflin

    i dont even know who lil mama is. at first i thought this was lil kim again bitching about her.


    She damn sure aint imitate Lil' Mama's record sales........

  • Jason Robinson

    LOL...Lil Mama trying to be relevant again (wait, was she ever?) The only person who she can beef with for jacking her style is Willow Smith because they are the same age and height.

  • John-Boy

    They both should try imitating someone with talent.

  • Meat Man

    See, this is why we as men need to step up and lick the asses of these women to stop all of this anger and hostility. I'm tired of seeing these news stories and seeing women in my everyday environment show so much anger and never get along. So to all men, if you can take the time to at least lick one ass I guarantee you will see a difference in today's women because all they need is for us to lick their sweet and love-starved asses. All men, lick at least one ass today and show these women that they're special so they won't have to do things like this for attention.

  • PLEASE!!!

    LOL why are you complaining your both wack ass rappers. Jean grae,Queen Latifah or mc lyte and Lauryn Hill would smoke their ass's.

    Lil Mama is so stupid, she never used to rock the style that Nicki does. She was always hats and that tomboyish hip-hop look, never girly. Just admit ur jacking Nicki's swag at least be honest about it. Even though both of these artistes can't really spit, Nicki wld kill her if this evolves into a beef

  • dablur

    Thought Nicki was rocking that style first? Hows she even a judge for dancers when she can't even dance that good her self?

  • dablur

  • TerBan920

    Lil Mama need to sit her ass down somewhere, she aint nobody's trend setter. Chicks been wearin bobs, everything about her is terrr-ble (in my Charles Barkley voice). Stick to ABDC, which im still confused as to how the hell she became a judge anyway...bottom line... shut the fuck up!

  • Vanno Davis

    • and

      the fact that Nicki is making money from everything while she (lil mama) is only getting paid for appearing in America's Best Dance Crew; i mean she did get dropped from her label, and she said she's thinking about quitting music. I say good, no sweat off my back.

  • really

    i like how everybody still uses "Lip Gloss" as the song to refer to her about, a 5 year old song, that shows how much she sucks.

  • genocide_cutter

  • OnemikE

    The LiL one got sum grapes in those panties to say Nikki is sweatin her style.. At the end of the day i dont think the grl nikki even kno who lil mama is..

  • BlazeDatIshUp

    fuck em both....they both suck anyway and no one should ever compare either one of them to Lauryn Hill.... Lauryn Hill is on another level compared to these 2... I'm waiting for these 2 and many other wack rappers to fade the hell away already...... If you want to hear good music from female rappers Jean Grae is the way to go until Lauryn gives us that good ish we gotta hear... Or go listen to Lauryn's other album(s)......

  • Mac

  • SMH

    Nickis cool!!! lil mama aint cool, so even if she stole her style, wlil mamaho gives a fuck, noone wants to see/hear

  • Debrico

    It amazes me how much hate Nicki gets, yet she goes on about her business. While her haters continue to bark. Don't ya'll get it, she could care less about ya'll. Nicki, keep doing you're thing, and make us barbz proud.

    • bkstylz

      Why does it amaze you? hip hop heads don't really feel Nicki, but little girls and other fans of pop music do.....and you are on a hip hop site.

  • her face...

    there's something about Lil Mama's face that makes me want to punch her. Anyways, Lil Mama just wants to get back in the spotlight, i didn't even know she was still a judge on ABDC, i also like how she says she's trendsetter but then copied T-Pain and got on stage when Jay-Z performed at the VMA's. Hahaha i liked how Jay-Z and Alicia Keye's posed, then you see Lil Mama trying to do the same pose. She ruined herself after that, not to say she was ever good to begin with. Stupid ass Funk Flex said that Lil Mama had the potential to be the next Lauryn Hill, when Lip Gloss came out...fucking for real, how are you going to hear a shitty ass song like Lip Gloss and then make a connection to anything that Lauryn Hill came out with. Damn you suck, Lil Mama.

    Lol, Nicki been wearing that way before Lil Mama that's dumb as hell. Lil Mama's just an attention whore, that's why she ran up on stage during Jigga & Alicia's performance that one time. After Lip Gloss she fell off and ain't had a hit ever since, now she's jealous of Nicki's sucess. Not hating, just calling it how I see it, and everything I said is the truth
