With no album release date in sight, Lil' Kim has set her sights on the mixtape game. Over the past few weeks, Lil' Kim has become a punching bag. Ever since Christmas, Foxy Brown, her old rival, has been throwing shots at her. Last week, Jacki-O, entered the beef with her own diss for the queen.
Before any of the other ladies stepped into the battle, Lil' Kim had set her sights on Nicki Minaj. After Nicki's 2010 takeover, many critics and fans compared her to Lil' Kim. Nicki Minaj said she was a big fan of Lil' Kim and she was a major influence. Lil' Kim later said she dissed her for not paying homage.
Following months of dissing Nicki Minaj with no response, Lil' Kim said she was ending the beef. Weeks later, Nicki Minaj released a song for Halloween called "Roman's Revenge." The song took open shots at Lil' Kim, but Nicki Minaj denied the song was dissing anyone. Soon, though, she admitted her verse was a diss to Lil' Kim and she dissed her again on Kanye West's "Monster."
Lil' Kim waited until after the release of Pink Friday to really begin dissing Nicki Minaj. In time for the holiday season, Lil' Kim released "Black Friday" and filmed a video for the song. With "Monster" steadily gaining more radio play, more people are hearing Nicki's verse. Lil' Kim has decided to up her arsenal with an entire mixtape dedicated to dissing Nicki Minaj. The "Black Friday" single will now serve as the lead single to the Black Friday mixtape. Lil' Kim's new mixtape will be released on February 14.
Via Twitter, Lil' Kim told Nicki Minaj "happy Valentines Day bitch."
