What’s crazy is how this whole Nicki Minaj/Cardi B thing has really boiled back down to the longstanding Lil’ Kim beef. In 2009, Nicki Minaj took over the game. A lot of people forget that Lil’ Kim was still making moves, that year, and was close to having a breakout hit.
Nicki Minaj blew up and Lil’ Kim immediately began calling her out, which made her look bitter. As Lil’ Kim explained the beef, more people understood. But, since 2012, Lil’ Kim has said she’s done talking about it, even though people keep asking her about it.
Now, years later, Nicki Minaj is the veteran, and she claims she felt disrespected by Cardi B, even breaking down into tears. There are legions of Lil’ Kim fans, still, who aren’t having it. One fan said Nicki didn’t really pay Kim homage, she took shots as early as 2003, and her beef with Cardi is her taking Nicki’s spot, to which Lil’ Kim gave the clapping hand emoji.
See the fan’s comment and Lil’ Kim’s clapping hand emoji response below:
