Lil Kim: Nicki Minaj isn’t the problem, it’s YOU

By  |  0 Comments

lil-kimDo you ever get the impression that Lil Kim doesn’t want to admit that she might be old?  She had her heyday in the nineties, but is having her haterday well into her forties.  Rather than mentoring and working with Nicki Minaj, she seems dead set and determined to compete with her and she isn’t winning the competition. 

Here’s an interesting article on the issue from Luvvie at TheGrio.com:

All I want for Christmas is someone to sit Kimberly Jones down and have a tough talk with her about maturity and why it skipped her this year (and the last 5).

The lady clearly has a chip on her shoulder that is distracting her from making music that will put her back on top musically.

Beyonce and Nicki Minaj released the Flawless remix this past Saturday. I was enthused by the collaboration of two of the reigning women in music, but I was firmly underwhelmed by the end product. The song was just ok. So on Monday, when Lil’ Kim dropped her remix of the remix by appending a mediocre 30 second verse to the end of it, I wondered why she even bothered.

I wrote about how Lil Kim RSVPed to the Flawless remix party she wasn’t invited to already, and I sufficiently expressed my reasons to side-eye the self-proclaimed Queen Bee.

Lil’ Kim basically Lil’ Mama’ed the track. She showed up at the end when everyone was already clapping, wondering why she’s there. She’s the kinda person who shows up on the playground after you picked teams for dodgeball, making the game all uneven. Petty. Sit this round out, madam! Or go start your own game.

She’s the kind who tries to walk up on you while you’re playing “Solitaire” talmbout “can I join?”

No. You. Cannot.

As if that wasn’t enough, yesterday, Kimberly came out with a single called “Identity Theft,” and it was a diss record to Nicki Minaj. The cover art is a picture of Nicki on an ID card that has Kimberly’s name and stats on it. Lady, why must you do the most with the utter least? Who are her mentors? Where are her advisers? What is wrong with her, and why is she so pressed?
