Lil’ Kim Dropping ‘Black Friday’ Mixtape on Valentine’s Day
If you thought the Lil' Kim and Nicki Minaj beef had lost steam, think again. The Queen Bee announced that she will be dropping her 'Black Friday' mixtape just in time for Valentine's Day. Since Kim, has been in an all out verbal war against Minaj for several months, there's a pretty good chance that, despite the Feb. 14 release date, the mixtape won't be about love.
"Black Friday the Mixtape - 2/14/11- WHO THE F--- WAR? #ItsBlackFridayHoe LEGOOOO!!!!!" Kim tweeted Wednesday (Jan. 26).
Back in November, Kim dropped the track 'Black Friday,' dissing Minaj, and then cast a Minaj lookalike for the song's music video. Although Minaj has been less aggressive with her response, it doesn't look like these two will become friendly anytime soon. "I saw her coming in the game like, 'All you chicks that's been in the game for 10 years, move over," Kim explained in an interview with Hot 97's Angie Martinez. "I thought that was disrespectful. Then she started saying stuff that was almost direct[ly] towards me ... and you could tell."
Minaj's fondness for colorful wigs and female presence in an all male rap crew, has long been compared to Kim. Yet since dropping her platinum selling debut 'Pink Friday' last November, the 26-year-old is slowly but surely etching out her own lane in hip-hop history. "She just really jumped out the window and you got to be careful when you pick fights," Minaj told Martinez of Kim. "I think people get me mistaken with a real Barbie. They forget where I'm from and if I have to revert back, I can and I will. It's one of those moments where you say, 'Don't play with me,' because I respect you, I love you, I've said it in every interview time and time again, and if that's not good enough with you mama, then it's something deep rooted in you," she reveals. "Something is bothering you inside. That's your insecurity bothering you. [If] it's not Nicki Minaj, it would have been any girl that started poppin'. She picked a fight with Foxy [Brown], then she picked a fight with Eve, then she picked a fight with Remy [Ma], then it was Ms. [Voletta] Wallace, then it was Nicki Minaj."
Alongside the mixtape, Kim is also said to be working on a full-fledged album release.
