Yesterday, I listened to an interview that colorful rapper, Nicki Minaj, did with Angie Martinez where she pretty much popped off on Lil’ Kim. Once I got the chance to really take it all in, I was shocked…not appalled by shocked.
I’ve made it known that I have always been a Kimmy fan and always will be. Although Kim’s lyrics have always been on some grown woman sh-t, I’ve always respected the fact that she would speak her mind on anything she wanted and didn’t give a damn who had something to say about it. While I realize that Nicki has “paid homage” to Kim several times over, you can’t tell me that this interview wasn’t semi disrespectful and a ploy to sell MORE records. Nicki stans…I’ve listened to the album. FOUR TIMES (because I HATE odd numbers) and I didn’t hear anything that made me want to KEEP my copy when it comes in the mail on Monday/Tuesday. Nicki is new, she’s bringing something
different cute to the table and many of you who are of THIS generation won’t get that it’s a copied style. A lot of you are saying that it’s about time Nicki said something but if you had your ears open, you’d know that Nicki’s BEEN talking. The only problem is that she says that people are misunderstanding her or trying to be slick with what she has to say while rappers before her have had no problem owning up to their sh-t and moving forward.
Don’t get me wrong…I like Nicki. She is hot on her features and she’s “fresh.” But THIS interview right here just made it disrespectful. I REALLY hope that Kim says something because in my humble opinion as a fan who’s been rockin’ with her for years, she has NOTHING to be afraid of. Again, I respect Nicki, believe she has a right to ‘defend’ herself, and enjoy her features (she should do a whole album on that alone). But if I have to base her future off this album coming out on Monday, I’d say that she’s going to end up the ‘sore’ loser as she falls from the pedestal many of YOU have put her on.
