In an interview with Vibe.com, Cash Money’s Birdman spoke on a variety of topics including Lil Wayne’s release from Rikers Island, The Carter IV, and even the beef between rappers Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim.
According to Birdman Lil Kim may have “asked for” her current rivalry with the rising Young Money star.
“Real talk, but maybe Kim asked for it,” said Birdman when asked about Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj. “Usually we don’t try to make money like that…that’s not our theory. We make great music. We have never been the type to make songs about motherfuckas. I think Nicki is speaking in general, not just Kim personally. A lot of motherfuckers have been hating on her success. To me, they are all asking for it. I don’t think any of them has as a talented clique as Nicki. We a movement.”
A feud between Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim was initially sparked back in June when Lil Kim called out both Nicki Minaj and Diddy at a concert in Baltimore. The feud has continued since that time with Nicki Minaj recently denying reports that she dissed Lil Kim on “Roman’s Revenge,” her song with Eminem.
Aside from speaking on Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj, Baby also revealed that there will be a Young Money/Cash Money tour starting in February 2011 and that The Carter IV will be released early next year as well.
“Well, we have the Young Money/Cash Money tour starting in February so we have a lot of new music coming out. Carter IV is coming out at the top of next year,” Birdman explained to Vibe.com.
