Is This The End For Lil Kim?
As the release of rapper Nicki Minaj‘s debut album nears, more and more leaks from the project surface. The most recent track to hit the public is “Roman’s Revenge,” her collaboration with Eminem, and although news broke about a week ago that she had recorded a track with Em, there weren’t any details on the shots she was going to take at a certain female rapper. In the Swizz Beatz–produced mega track Nicki sheds light on how she feels about Lil Kim, and although she doesn’t say Kim’s name directly, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know Nicki is going at the Queen Bee. In the song the Young Money mistress spits bars like,
“Fuck I look like gettin’ back to a has been? Yeah I said it, has been/ Hang it up, flat screen”
And she doesn’t stop there, she continues with lines like:
“You need a job, this ain’t cuttin it/ Nicki Minaj is who you ain’t fuckin’ with”
And if you thought that was it, Nicki drops a few more dissing bars:
“Is this the thanks that I get for putting you b*tches on? Is it my fault that all of you b*tches gone/ Should’a sent a thank you note you little hoe, now Im’ma wrap your coffin with a bow”
Take a listen to the new Nicki song below:
Now Kim’s taken a few shots at Nicki and said she needs to pay homage, but she hasn’t gotten at Young Money’s first lady like “Roman’s Revenge” gets at her. Nicki’s ever growing fan base and big hype around her debut secure her candidacy for the top female spot, while making it even easier to forget an almost obsolete Kimberly Jones, who hasn’t dropped an album since 2005. I have to ask: Is this the end for Lil Kim?
