Nicki Minaj is still playing talk show host while promoting her new Queen album and during one of her many monologues, she mentioned Remy Ma and Lil Kim.
Before pulling out the glove box — this time around, it was a bit more positive, even though she threw Cardi B under the bus.
Nicki said people are always bashing her for not showing love for Lil Kim and Remy, but she has done that numerous times in the past.
She stated that when she was an upcoming artist, she was inspired by Lil Kim and Remy because she loved their sounds and they are from New York just like her.
And below are the old interviews where she is praising the legends of the rap game who came before her.
One fan told the femcee: “Nicki needs to ignore the hate. She needs to understand that she’s the best selling female artist in the most popular music genre in the world, so of course, she’s going to have a ridiculous hate-train following her every move. People hate who’s at the top and love to overrate the person who’s in second place to overthrow the person at the top.”
Another wrote: “She’s not even saying that cardi should pay homage, she just wanted genuine respect as everybody does. It’s clear that cardi b had a preconceived notion of Nicki. But this whole things about paying homage is tired. No one owes anyone else anything in this life. Kim is an icon, and we know this already. Nicki is an icon in her own right as well. The end.”
This follower claimed: “A woman can have more hunger or thirst to be on top that’s with anybody that’s big in the music industry but to constantly put our women against each other is stupid. It’s also the reason why we don’t have that many mainstream female rappers. I used to love when Kim, Eve, Foxy, Truth, etc. could all, and they all had their own way of shining and feeling cocky. Nicki has always been one of the people who tried hard not to respond to things in my eyes. But the minute she decided to speak up and defend herself with the receipts to match, it’s a problem! All of you painting her to be a bad guy and you all making it look like this girl just threw shots at Cardi (if she even did). This goes to show that she doesn’t speak on anything unless she felt it needed to be addressed nor does she throw shots at anyone who hasn’t thrown shots at her as well.”
Lil Kim has decided to stop feuding with Nicki; maybe they might make peace one day.
