Kim-Nicki-Iggy

T.I. Speaks On "Nicki vs Kim" & "Nicki vs Iggy"

(AllHipHop News) Lil Kim’s return to verbally assaulting Nicki Minaj on records has opened the door to discuss the longstanding feud between the two female rappers. Billboard spoke with T.I. about the beef, and the Hustle Gang boss believes all the talk about Nicki “taking Kim’s spot” or being the “Queen of Rap” has added fuel to the fire.

“Just because you heard another person say that you gonna be on edge,” said T.I. “I feel like that’s more of the case with Kim and Nicki, even though I don’t know what started any of this, it’s a little more complicated to put to bed because of that fact.”

Tip also added the constant comparisons between Kim and Nicki would “put a chip on your shoulder in a different way too.” He was then asked about the rumored beef between Minaj and his close collaborator Iggy Azalea.

“That’s a little more preposterous,” he stated. “Like ‘what the f**k’ because they’re not even in each other’s lane.”

Nicki’s speech at the this year’s BET Awards sparked reports that she was sending subliminal shots at Iggy. While accepting the trophy for Best Female Hip Hop Artist, Nicki said, “When you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.”

Those words were perceived to be directed at Azalea who some have questioned whether she writes her own bars. Nicki late denied she was addressing Iggy with her speech, and Iggy brushed off the controversy as well.

On the other hand, Iggy and Kim have been very supportive of each other publicly. Tip even hints to Billboard a Lil Kim/Iggy Azalea collaboration could be happening in the future.

    After seeing the pictures of Kim from back in the day and the ones of nicki I could see why she’s mad. But I doubt nicki was the one with the ideas to have the same photos as Kim did. That was most likely the photographers takin the pics or the labels idea.

    • ♥♥

      She started it before she was signed.

      • Danny Martin

        She was never ‘paying homage’. She was using KIM to get attention. Kim embraced her, and once Nicki got that public acknowledgement from Kim, she stabbed her in the back because she got what she wanted from Kim, by playing her.
        She tried playing Lauryn Hill the same exact way at Summer Jam also, but it didn’t fall through.

    • Danny Martin

      Actually, Nicki intentionally did it and still does it with many things to try and get at Kim. She’s just sneaky about it.

      • Killuminati

        Yea I can’t stand nicki, not a Kim fan either but that shit is swagger jacking for sure

  • hoeyuno

    There’s exactly 3 females in the mainstream rap game and they all hate each other…haha I dont know if thats a reflection of sucsessful women or just rap music…..T’nah Apex about to mop the floor with these disgraceful bitches anyway. .

  • Montezuma1

    Kim is washed. Iggy is a gimmick. Nicki is talented but playing the game. Kim need to go on tour with Salt & Pepa and stop trying to compete with current artists. Kim’s fans are all +35 and they don’t buy music. Iggy is gonna win because she’s white and the only white female. She has that lane all to herself. Doesn’t matter what anyone says. Nicki carved her own lane. Love her or hate her she stays ahead of the curve from a marketing standpoint. Her flexibility is indicative of her talent. Of the 3 Nicki is the most solid and Iggy may have the most potential. Sorry Kim you lose again.

    • ♥♥

      Wrong. I’m a Kim fan and I just turned 17. Washed? I think not. She’s trying to compete with no one because none of these bitches have 4 platinum plus multiplatinum albums/singles, a grammy, and 5 mics. For you to say Nicki is talented when she flops like a limp dick contradicts everything not to mention the bitch steals bars. Iggy’s gonna win because she’s humble and if it had something to do with her being white why aren’t Kreayshawn, Chanel, Debbie, and Brooke up there? You can’t carve your own lane when shit you’ve done has been patterned after other people. Kim was a successful rap artist who didn’t have to convert to pop to sell. She didn’t flop within 5 yrs of her career she sold PLATINUM WITHOUT SOCIAL MEDIA like iTunes, Twitter, and Instagram.

      • Montezuma1

        Kim is almost 40 and you are 17 + 20. Cut it out. If Kim got a hit in her she need to just make it. Whatever happened to letting your music speak for you? Washed was harsh. I liked Kim. hung out with her. Feel bad for the way dudes exploited her including BIG but that shyt is ancient history. There’s more to life than just rap. She needs to reinvent herself. The old ways are not working.

      • ♥♥

        Kim is 35. The media lied about her age because she was 17 when she hit the scene. ’96. Nobody wants to hear a little girl saying “I used to be scared of the dick, now I throw lips to the shit, handle it like a real bitch”. I’m a die hard Kim fan. I love her beyond music. She’s very discredited. I ride with Kim til the death and will most definitely snatch wigs for my queen. And if you claim to have been so personal with Ms. Jones WHY ARE YOU DICK RIDING THE ENEMY? You should know her better than me. Tuhhhh.

      Nicki is washed. She can’t produce good music to save her life. She is far from talented also. She just emulates & parodies other peoples work and puts her name on it.
      Nicki never carved a lane for herself either. She ran through the lane that Lil’ Kim opened for her.
      Sorry faggot, Nicki loses again. Go play with your Barbie.

      • Montezuma1

        The market says different. She’s not a fly by night artist with a hot single. She’s proven in the marketplace. The problem with people like you is you confuse what works with personal preferences. That’s why you’ll never be anything but a heckler but carry on.

      • Danny Martin

        The market? Her career is doing nothing but going downhill. A heckler?? I have a college degree with a full time job and support myself. Go play with your Barbie, you bum!

      • Montezuma1

        Ooozing with insecurity and self-doubt. I’m willing to bet you have neither. lmao

  • Breeze

    Lol

    • tr3sdaddy

      you could take these same pictures and match them up with just about any stripper in America and they’d have matching wigs as well……………..

      • Danny Martin

        You’re lying. Kim brought it to Hip Hop. Have a seat.

      • tr3sdaddy

        Where did I say anything about whom brought what to hip-hop? I said strippers copy these looks as well.

      • Danny Martin

        This topic is about female rappers, not strippers. Have several seats, son!

      • tr3sdaddy

        Yea. Because female rappers(especially these two)& strippers have no correlation what so ever……………

      • Danny Martin

        We can find a correlation between female rappers and anybody from any profession or job… Now you’re just reaching. Try again kid.

      • tr3sdaddy

        That’s exactly the point I was making genius. Everybody copies everybody’s look. Unless of course you were that first person with clothes or hair, odds are you’re wearing something that somebody has already done. God Bless the stupid……..

  • Southcidal

    Ikky shouldn’t be in this conversation. Kim and Nikki can both spit. T.I. needs to step his ghost writing game up for his girl before he attempts to put her in that category. Ikky should be compare to Khia a Kreashwan.

    • Danny Martin

      Oh, so you prefer Ikki’s ‘twinkle twinkle little starships in the sky’? ok.

  • gayke

    who is iggy? rofl shes cheap and weak.

    nicki is ugly as hell and very bad at rapping. her voice sounds like my butt@toilet. horrible whore.

    lil kim is the real queen. nobody else.

    iggy and nicki should been locked away.

  • tr3sdaddy

    I’m as old school as anybody so what I don’t get is why are we acting like Kim was that dope do begin with. That’s not to say Nicki or Iggy are any better, I just personally have never been that impressed with Kim as an emcee.

    • Reazonero

      I argue with my fiance about this all the time. Lil kim is not and never was hot in my opinion. She came from the era where rappers felt like they needed a female in their camp, so they just grabbed a girl and wrote for them. Examples: Foxy Brown, Amil, Vita.

      Lil kim just happened to be down with the hottest rapper in the game at that point. She milked Biggie’s legacy just like Diddy

      • tr3sdaddy

        I agree. Only song she has that I really rock wit is “The Jumpoff” and there were rumors that Jadakiss wrote that..

      • Danny Martin

        Lies. Jada never wrote that. Kim did, in the studio with Timbaland.

      • tr3sdaddy

        I don’t know if she did or not but it was rumored to have happen. Either way that’s her best song to me

      • Danny Martin

        I’m telling you she did. And you need to go listen to more of her music if you think that’s her best one. She has PLENTY of music that’s better than that song.

      • tr3sdaddy

        & I’m telling you I don’t know who the hell you are so until you show me proof I’m going to continue to be skeptical

      • Danny Martin

        I’m telling you I don’t care. Go head and be skeptical, regardless, you’re wrong, son!

  • calvin brown

    mia x was and is the best female rapper i ever heard her versec from somebodys watching me alone kills all the female rappers the came out in the last 15 years

    • ursocalledgod

      mia x LMAO gtfoh. her and trina had the wackest elementary sounding versus i have ever heard! when you talk about a female…a REAL female Mcee there is none better than Lauren Hill. Queen LatifaH and Mc Lyte rounds out the top three. mia x LMAO SMH

      • Danny Martin

        MC Lyte & Queen Latifah are trash. People mention them because they are safe. In reality, they’re just dykes who were afraid of being exposed for licking the kitty, so they minded their Ps & Qs.

      • tr3sdaddy

        Lyte trash??

      • Danny Martin

        Yes Lyte is trash. She has maybe 2 good songs out of 1,000+. That equates trash.

      • tr3sdaddy

        1,000+?? Hahahahaha………nothing like an oversell to try and prove a point

      • Danny Martin

        2 good songs out of a hundred, thousand, whatever–she’s garbage.

      • tr3sdaddy

        LOL….that awkward moment when you realize you exaggerated a bit too much

      • Danny Martin

        I’m not exaggerating. She’s garbage! People only mention her dyke ass because she’s safe dumbass

      • tr3sdaddy

        Hahaha..what are you so mad about, cuz I called you out on your ridiculous exaggeration? And if she’s really a dyke(don’t know, don’t care)that would make mentioning her less safe in the homophobic arena known as Hip-Hop..

      • Danny Martin

        That’s why she hides it and her girlfriend. And no, it wasn’t a ridiculous exaggeration– her music is garbage. Have a seat!

      • tr3sdaddy

        oh it definitely was a ridiculous exaggeration…..coming from a ridiculous human being(assuming)….who makes ridiculous comments about what did and didn’t happen without any proof of to verify his ridiculous claims. Fortunately I find all of this hilarious and since I have a cigar and a nice bottle of red wine I will have that seat you recommended…..

      • Danny Martin

        The only ridiculous human being here is you- acting stupid because someone else has a different opinion than you. And YOU are the one making ridiculous comments about something you have NO PROOF to clarify your own claims son. A cigar and a nice bottle of wine, yet you’re trying to call other people ridiculous? Lmao! Your loss son.

      • tr3sdaddy

        LOL….over 40 hrs for this response. I didn’t claim anything so I don’t need proof. YOU stated that a song WAS written in the studio without providing proof, I brought up and admitted a rumor that may or may not have been true. You stated that Lyte had over 1000 songs.I laughed at the flat ridiculous overstatement YOU made about the 2/1000+ good songs. Yes you’re being ridiculous. Own it. Your exaggerations could lead you to a future career in politics.

      • ursocalledgod

        Wow. You sound seriously ignorant and uneducated bruh. I see why you like Mia X. Easy for you to relate to simpleton so called artists.

  • Obi Won

    The biggest problem with this is, its one big circle of contradiction.
    Big wrote for Kim and she sounded just like him at her best, Nicki bit Kim’s erotic style but has her own rapping style, Iggy doesn’t play the look at my ass role (not yet anyway) but its clear that TI wrote for her and is just a face product. Iggy is on top for whatever reason but is not beefing with anyone assuming bc she knows she’s just the face and voice but not the brains behind the operation, Nicki is kinda on top but is salty bc another female is getting attention, and Kim is supposed to be a Legendary Queen B, but she’s salty bc her biter looks better.

    • tr3sdaddy

      I agree with most of this. But Iggy does play the look at my ass role. I’m sure you’ve seen the video of her bent over slapping her “gina while performing. and she twerks a lot

    • ♥♥

      Don’t speak on situations you clearly know nothing about. Biggie died in the beginning of Kim’s career so who was writing her shit all this time? He wrote and rapped Queen Bitch to show her how he wanted her to sound. All her shit says K. Jones. Nicki stole that rapping style from Kim back in ’09 when Kim was recording a song with her and YMCMB. They released the song, took it back because it received bad reviews (so they say), AND RERELEASED IT WITH OUT KIM. And Baby would ask Kim what she’d be working on and she’d show him and he stole it and gave it to Nicki. Nobody is writing for Iggy, she’s a very basic, mediocre lyricist. I’m sure if she had a ghost writer she’d slay. However Nicki doesn’t write her shit. SB writes her shit that’s why she stopped him from rapping because they sound the same, along with Ester Dean and a few others. And if you’re saying Nicki did Kim’s style better, no way because she did what was hot when she first came out and please go look up Nicki’s no makeup instagram selfies. She looks like a wet rat. She stole more than just outfits and wigs from Kim. She stole lyrics. The media photoshops Kim’s photos

      • Obi Won

        That’s my point, all of Kim’s work post Big was garbage. While he was around is when she was at her best, Junior Mafia & Her 1st album Everything showed that she needed that help. Also in no way form or fashion am I saying I’m a music fan of Nicki lol, I’m a fan as a man. THATS IT!! Her music is garbage to me so, saying she stole Kim style in 09 doesn’t make it any better. If Baby was the one who snaked Kim, why isn’t she going at Baby and Slim? They set the whole thing up right? And your out of your mind if you don’t think Tip is writing for Iggy lol, that the most obvious TI flow that anyone can spot. Your the only one who doesn’t hear it, unless you didn’t listen to TI. When I say Nicki has her own style, I’m saying ive never heard anyone flow like she does, even if SB wrote for her, who is SB again? I could careless if nicki looked like a wet rat lol, its more funnier than anything. All they did was slowly switch places, Kim used to be the Hottest in the game while Nicki like u said looked like a “wet rat” lol, and now Nicki is BAD, while Kim looks bad.

    • Danny Martin

      Actually, S.B. ghostwrites for NIcki. Her entire rap career has been nothing but a parody also.
      Also, Kim is mad at Nicki because Nicki played her when Kim tried embracing her up & coming ass.. Stop falling into believing everything Nicki tells you. She’s a manipulative fraud!

    • idgafb

      Iggy doesn’t look better lol you kiddin. she look like the wayans bros in white chicks… face wise. body is on point ha but Nicki is def. full package. Kims looks are allllll fd up.

  • I like the fact that Kim’s name is being mentioned once again…It goes to show that Kim is the real queen, she is ALWAYS a point of conversation when it comes to female Hip-Hop…It’s a shame how Foxy fell off so hard that she is not even mentioned at all, it’s like she never existed….lol

    • idgafb

      cant really say I agree with you. Nicki owns the rap world as far as female rappers go, whereas the last interesting thing Kim has done is ruining her face to the point of where she looks like a clown. I didn’t even like Nicki, nor do I care about female rappers to be honest, but Nicki is killin it right now. Nicki will always be better lookin too

      • Danny Martin

        Nicki ‘WAS’ killing it. Then Iggy popped up and and stole a lot of her steam.

  • Danny Martin

    Go watch ‘Lil’ Kim: Playtime is Over’ on Youtube. You’ll be amazed and creeped out at the stuff Nicki has pulled on Kim. Single White Female type of stuff.

    While you guys sit here and have an unhealthy debate about who’s better than who, guess who is making more and more money with a large fan base. So unless you make more money than any of these women and have a real success of your own, you should just congratulate their success, no matter how they got it and find one of your own. I think its ignorant to have sooo much hate for someone you don’t even know. Whether you like their music or not is irrelevant and will always be an opinion but women in general need to stop disrespecting each other and stop tearing each other down because we all serve a purpose of our own and their will always be a disagreement. Its life, so get over it. I think McDonalds French fries are better than Burger King fries, but who give a damn. Somebody in the world is gonna disagree with me. My point is both companies are gonna still make their money and they don’t care about what I think….
