I’m certain that those who know me know where I stand when it comes to the Lil Kim VS. Nicki Minaj debate. I initially disliked Nicki when she first popped up on the scene, I refused to acknowledge her talent because I didn’t like the image she was portraying and what it was doing to these impressionable females. If only you knew how much it grinded my gears to see basic b*tches screaming that they’re barbies after they can’t even afford a barbie doll 4 their pickney.. But after a while I couldn’t escape from this blown up plastic real life doll, her music’s everywhere and I started to listen.. I appreciate her talent and the buzz she’s created in the lead up to her album but from the very beginning I heard Lil Kim influences in her flow and delivery. If u watch her underground vids where she jumps on Biggy and Lil Kims instrumentals it’s evident who she was inspired by.
So what’s the problem?
When asked which female rappers/artists inspired her she replied NO-ONE! PAY RESPECT WHERE IT’S DUE! you’re not the first female rapper to exist so u obviously was inspired by someone..
My take on Lil Kim?!? I gotta pay homage to the Queen B. She’s the original! Barbie, that was her thing. Surgery, she jus done it at a date where it wasn’t as advanced which is why she resembles a Jackson sister. The colorful wigs, de javu! At the same time I think she needs to recognize that the scenes changed, she done this years ago. She should be laughing this off rather than trying 2 challenge Nicki.
I’ll let u lot watch and decide for yourselves..
