Lil' Mama accuses Nicki Minaj of Stealing Her Style

Ever since Nicki Minaj first signed with Young Money, she has been under the microscope with other female rappers. Lil' Kim has been the most critical of Nicki Minaj because she has received many comparisons to her. Three years before Nicki took over the game, there was another New York femcee in line.

In 2007, Lil' Mama released her debut single, "Lip Gloss." The video featured Lil' Kim, who served as Lil' Mama's mentor. Despite her quick start, Lil' Mama fizzled out a little over a year. Initially, she was hailed as the future of female rap. But, after her verse on "Shawty Get Loose," she was forgotten.

Lil' Mama made headlines in 2009, with her slight jabs at Nicki. But, for the most part, she has been an afterthought. Recently, Lil' Mama returned to the forefront, discussing Nicki Minaj. She said Nicki has been jacking her style, especially when it comes to the hair. In an interview with VIBE, Lil' Mama said she was actually flattered that Nicki Minaj is copying her.
