(AllHipHop Rumors) While Nicki Minaj finally acknowledged Lil Kim and gave her credit, it doesn't look like Lil Kim is completely ready to accept anything from Nicki at this point.
In the past Nicki has said that she did give credit to Lil Kim at a point in her career, but everyone only sees their longstanding feud, and actually feels like she denied the obvious influence.
Honestly I think we'd rather see them on the same track than for them to continue beefing with each other.
Recently Nicki claimed that social media and mainstream media twisted and remixed her words by saying she was taking credit for making the female rapper mainstream.
Nicki took to Instagram to clear up any confusion as she explained that she came in at a time where there had been a drought as far as females having a heavy presence or a presence at all in Hip Hop. With her clarification she also took time out to give credit to a number of successful female rappers that came before her including Lil Kim.
"Lauryn sold 10 million off one album, Eve had platinum singles w/Alicia, Gwen Stefani, her own tv show & clothing line. It doesn't get more mainstream/pop than Missy's biggest singles. Foxy&Kim had platinum albums & shaped the sound of NY female rappers, Latifah had her own sitcom, Trina was on billboard with hits, etc," said Nicki.
I mean everyone felt like this was a huge step in the right direction, and a huge step as far a maturity and burying the hatchet [between Kim and Nicki], but Lil Kim got caught liking a shady Instagram comment.
A fan wrote,
"The garbz literally have to stoop down to talking about Kim's child meanwhile their fave supporting a child molester."
Ouch! Nicki Minaj's brother's lawyer recently came out and said that Nicki is in full support of her brother Jelani Maraj as he will stand trial for the rape of a child.
If Lil Kim can make up with Faith Evans, maybe there's a chance that she can put aside her differences with Nicki.
If I was either of them, I would be collaborating on a song and getting to the bag, whether they end up liking each other or not!
