Lil Mama Compares Her Beef With Nicki Minaj To Biggie & Tupac
Lil Mama has a big problem: She has lost touch with reality.
First she crashed the MTV VMA “Empire State Of Mind,” performance of Alicia Keys and Jay-Z back in 2009, then she accused Nicki Minaj of copying her style after she started rocking a bob. “Nicki Minaj started wearing that bob on her head after she came to my show, so at the end of the day I know what I do and I know what I possess and I know who I am,” Lil Mama told Vibe back in June. “I’m a trendsetter. The biggest form of flattery is imitation so I’m flattered. I understand the universal law. I’m not confused, I don’t feel like a follower. I started so many things that new artists are doing now anyway—my style, the way I’m aggressive on a track, the way I come through, the way my beat bangs. There are so many things that were borrowed, that I influenced that’s happening in music right, so I’m far from discouraged.”
Now the 22-year-old rapper who hasn’t had a certifiable hit since 2007′s “Lip Gloss” and 2008′s “Shawty Get Loose” is continuing her “swagger jacker” accusations aimed towards dear ole Nicki comparing their beef with the epic battle between Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls. “If we decided to go at each other and then somebody ended up dead, everybody in hip-hop would be like, ‘Oh my God, it’s so sad what happened to them.’” Lil Mama told XXL. “It’s just like what happened with Pac and Biggie. The same people that promote it and it’s sad.”
Wow. Does Nicki even know who Lil Mama is? Well yes, the two have shared a stage together, but we are pretty sure this “drama” is all in Lil Mama’s lil head. Lil Mama then stated that when she last saw Nicki it was all good in the hood. “She came to my show…the greeting was beautiful,” Lil Mama admitted. “It was like, ‘Hi beautiful, how are you?’ you know what I mean. It wasn’t like ‘Hi,’ and then the name calling or screwed up face or anything negative. If someone has something negative to say about you or they don’t like you, they wouldn’t greet you and say, ‘Hello beautiful.”
Hello beautiful? Those sound like fighting words. Listen to Nicki quickly diss and dismiss Lil Mama in the “5 Star Chick” remix below. What do you think? Is Lil Mama just stirring controversy for exposure?
