During the 1990s, Eve and Lil' Kim redefined the female's role in the rap game and built a friendship. But, as time went on, the ladies were pulled away from making music. Eve found success in Hollywood, while Lil' Kim had trouble with the law.
After 2005, no prominent female was making music outside of Remy Ma. Once she got out of prison, Lil' Kim announced she was going to record a new album. Label politics, however, stopped this from happening. Nicki Minaj was rising, all the while.
By 2010, Nicki Minaj had taken over the rap game and Lil' Kim began dissing her. For months, the feud was one-sided and then Nicki Minaj ignited the feud with her own disses. The two have been trading disses and other female rappers have not been supportive.
Recently, Eve was asked about their feud and she said she would like for Lil' Kim to stop it. Aside from going at Nicki, she has also been trying to create issues with singer, Keyshia Cole. Eve thinks Lil' Kim is investing too much energy in the feud when she should be focusing on new music.
