Lil’ Kim appeared on Power 105’s Breakfast Club morning show in New York on Thursday (May 17), where the Queen Bee claimed Nicki Minaj’s new record ‘Automatic’ is very similar to an unreleased record with the same title that she recorded and played for Cash Money three years ago.
“On her new album, she has a song called ‘Automatic,’ and the song is so similar to the song that I played for Slim,” Kim said, referring to Cash Money co-CEO Ronald “Slim” Williams. “The problem with her is she was very catty with it. I never had a problem with her – I was always, always nice with her, always. She was a very obnoxious person, but I was always nice with her.”

Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs shared his opinion on the now cooled war of words between Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim during an appearance on Funkmaster Flex’s Hot97 show on Monday. “Kim is the queen,” the Bad Boy boss said. “And Nicki’s the queen in her own right… I wouldn’t be around Nicki if I ever heard [something] negative about Kim. I’ve never heard nothing like that. Then, when it comes to just being an MC, then I’ve got to stand back. If they want to do things and be MCs, that’s their business. I’m not with any negativity. I’m not with no beef. I love both of them.”

I just think that everything has been blown out of proportion and the two of them need to kiss and make up.” Watch the photo shoot footage below the cut. (more…)
Jadakiss visited Hot 97 in New York City on Wednesday (June 23) to talk with Funk Flex, offering his thoughts on Lil’ Kim having an issue with Nicki Minaj biting her style. “I just think if Kim felt some sort of way about it she should’ve come early with it,” Jada said. “Address it right at the door like you’re supposed to do in the steet when you’re not feeling something. Queen Bee is the QB, that’s the epitome of female MC’ing. She did her thing. But you can’t just keep bloggin or saying stuff because now, this industry is mainly controlled by the younger generation, the internet, and to get any kind of say so or leverage you need music.” Watch the interview via YouTube below.
