Lil’ Kim Calls Nicki Minaj ‘Catty’ and ‘Obnoxious,’ Says Biggie’s Mom ‘Didn’t Know Him’
Lil' Kim takes aim at Nicki Minaj, the Notorious B.I.G.'s mother Voletta Wallace and Azealia Banks in a new interview with Power 105.1's "The Breakfast Club." The Brooklyn rapper was extremely candid during her sit-down on the radio show, which she initially arrived for to speak about her current Return of the Queen tour.
While speaking with hosts Charlamagne, Angela Yee and DJ Envy, Kim sounded off on the very public battle she and Nicki Minaj have been involved in since the Young Money rhymer hit the hip-hop scene.
"She started releasing all these records doing her vocals the way I did my vocals," Kim stated. "I played a record for Slim [of Cash Money Records] called 'Automatic.' It's a St. Tropez, dance type of record. Three years ago I played him this record. On her new album, she has a song called 'Automatic' and the song is so similar to the song that I played for Slim."
She went on describe Minaj as being less than friendly when they did meet. "Whether my fans would have liked that sound or not, it was my sound. I brought that sound to the table. The problem with her is she was very catty with it. I never had a problem with her. I was always nice with her -- always. She was a very obnoxious person, but I was always nice with her."
As for Azealia Banks, who took to Twitter last week to bash Lil' Kim for denying her the opportunity to collaborate on a track, the veteran MC was quick to set the record straight on the "beef."
"I never met this girl a day in my life," Kim shared. "I never talked to this chick, she don't know what I sound like. I don't know what she sound like on the phone. I think it's in chicks' contracts when they come out, you gotta go at Lil' Kim."
Voletta Wallace, the Notorious B.I.G.'s mother, was also a hot topic of discussion. The two women have been at odds with one another since Biggie's passing.
"Big's mom doesn't know Biggie," she claims. "And she barely knows Christopher. She used to kick him out daily. She did not care to know him or get to know him. Don't get me wrong, he loved his mother and I'm pretty sure as a mom she loved her son, but she didn't know him."
