It’s the battle of old royalty versus new royalty.
Just a day after Beyonce released the remix to ‘Flawless’ which features 31 year old rapper Nicki Minaj, there’s some rap beef brewing. Lil’ Kim dropped a remix to the remix (is that allowed or would it be a super remix mix?).
The first version of the single addresses the infamous elevator brawl when Solange wind milled and gut punched Jay Z. Minaj flows into the track and references herself as the “Queen of Rap.” Queen Bee Lil’ Kim tossed aside the diapers and bottles to come out of mommy hood to address the shade.
At the end of Minaj’s verse in the remix, the ‘Beez in the Trap’ artist says “The Queen of Rap slaying with Queen Bey” and Lil’ Kim wasn’t having it. The self proclaimed (according to her Twitter bio) Queen of Rap hit the studio to tack on her own 30 seconds of diss to the song to slam the former American Idol judge. Lil’ Kim even went so far as to change the cover art for the single by removing Minaj’s photo and replacing it with her own.
“Am I trippin’ or did this hoe just say my name/ Queen of Rap, get f–k outta here/ Queen’s back, get f–k outta here/ Time to get this rap bitch up outta here,” Lil Kim says before concluding, “Damn, it’s a shame I gave you the rope/ Bitch I want you to hang.”
WE don’t know about y’all but this sounds like fighting words. Check out the track below:
The Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim beef goes back a few years. In an interview with The Breakfast Club in 2012, Lil Kim explained why the two will never ever be friends.
Meanwhile the new mother of Royal Reign will appear on this season of WE tv’s David Tutera’s CELEBrations. Tutera and his team get the chance to ‘rumble with the Bee’ while planning the rapper’s baby shower.
