Lil’ Kim Taunts Nicki Minaj Double in ‘Black Friday’ Video
After releasing her mixtape ‘Black Friday‘ earlier this week, Lil’ Kim has unleashed the visuals for the title track, once again taking swipes at her nemesis Nicki Minaj. The clip was shot in Brooklyn late last year and features a Nicki lookalike who stands next to Kim and attempts to replicate Kim’s classic pose from her ‘Hardcore’ poster.
The visuals begin with Kim stepping on a bloody wig assumed to belong to Nicki, with the voice of Notorious B.I.G. chiming in to back Kim’s rhyme skills and Sean ‘Diddy‘ Combs speaking on how she’s responsible for his success. Throughout the video, Kim raps in front of her crew International Rock Stars and in a Brooklyn basement, while the Nicki lookalike studies Kim’s past looks and a little girl plays with a Nicki Minaj action figure with a detachable derriere.
The roughly seven-minute clip ends with words of wisdom from Michael Jackson, serving as the moral of the story. “It is better to fail in originality, than to succeed in imitation … period,” reads the quote.
Kim has had a resurgence as of lately after she released ‘Black Friday’ last Thanksgiving. She became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter after releasing her bloody cover image for the mixtape earlier this week, depicting her brandishing a sword and a decapitated Nicki.
