Trinidad native Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj has turned down speculation that her new “Roman’s Revenge” record is intentionally calling out Lil Kim.
Minaj saidLil Kim is not being targeted, however, she admits the song is directed toward female rap critics.
“No, I’m talking about everyone who has been in interviews talking and I think it’s good for people to hear me respond to a lot, people have said so much about me so I don’t ever single anyone out because no one is worth being singled out,” Minaj explained in an interview when asked if she was dissing Kim. “No one is worth having their name mentioned out of my mouth and they never will get that. But you know, I’ve been quiet for such a long time, I’ve been the nice guy, I’ve been the person that gave everybody their props. I complemented everybody from day one and I think that as a rapper, you can’t be a rapper and not speak on things being said about you. So, I use my music to say what I have to say.”
veteran Roxanne Shante recently shared her reaction to Minaj’s “Revenge” track.
“If she named it ‘Roman’s Revenge’ after ‘Roxanne’s Revenge’, then I’m honored. Job very well done,” Shante said in an interview. “[Nicki’s] record was to prove a point, but I was never afraid to say names. Not saying that she’s afraid, but I always wanted people to know who I was talking about…The similarities are she just doesn’t care. Like, [Lil Kim], this is what I’m saying about you, now what you gonna do? Being a battle rapper that was totally respected by my male counterparts, I understand where she’s coming from. No one can tell the future. [Lil’ Kim] could come back with something that blows everyone’s mind. Or, she could come back with something and blow her own mind.” (VIBE)
