With all of the back and forth between Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim, Diddy is finally speaking on where he stands on the feud. While Puff worked with Lil’ Kim in the past, he now works with Minaj and when asked about their current war of words, Diddy simply said he was neutral on the subject. In a recent interview with Funkmaster Flex, Diddy also added that Kim remains very near to his heart and that he’s never heard Minaj say anything bad about Kim.
“I love Lil’ Kim no matter what’s going on, no matter what’s being said. Kim definitely has a responsibility for my success. Me working with Nicki Minaj has nothing to do with going against Kim. When Kim works with other producers, when she raps with other artists, I’m not getting upset. It’s not a problem,” he told Flex.
“I wouldn’t be around Nicki if I ever heard [something] negative about Kim. I’ve never heard nothing like that. Then, when it comes to just being an emcee, then I’ve got to stand back. If they want to do things and be emcees, that’s their business. I’m not with any negativity. I’m not with no beef. I love both of them.”
“Right now, Nicki Minaj? That’s who my artist is. That’s who I consult. That’s who I do business with. I no longer do business with Kim on that level, but Kim will always have a special place in my heart.”
