No lace front, no homage, no problem! Foxy Brown tells MTV that she didn’t let off any verbal shots in Nicki Minaj’s direction during her gat gut busting show at B.B. Kings on Sunday because she respects her branding game.
“What’s funny, I actually applaud Nicki for it,” said Foxy, who was accompanied by her manager earlier this week during a visit to the MTV News studio. “I think she’s doing an incredible job of branding herself. When you’re a boss bitch, you give it up. Send her a Chanel bag or something,” she laughed. “If you’re winning, you’re wining. That’s just how I see it.”
In the past few weeks Lil’ Kim has shared her thoughts on what she perceive as Nicki Minaj’s lack of humility with anyone down to listen but never explained her core beef.
Karu F. Daniels of BlackVoices reached out to the Queen Bee to get down to what is really making her sweat her baby hairs out about Young Money’s HBIC.
“See that’s another problem that I have, I’m going to briefly explain this, but here’s another thing that the world doesn’t know … I have a really great relationship with the people who run her camp [Cash Money Records], Slim and Baby. My relationship is with Slim, I’ve been cool with him for four or five years now. This whole thing came about when she was first trying to come up and everything. I honestly didn’t like it. It was so obvious that she wanted to be like me. It was so obvious that she wanted to pattern herself after me. She likes me, but she just doesn’t know how to show me love. So I looked at it like, they know how to do it, cause Slim always got the industry, me and him got the same thing. I got a lot of love for Slim. So his thing was, we should all do something together and that’s how I saw it. I was like, ‘Hey it would be great for hip-hop to see me and a female rocking together.’
“I wasn’t blown away by her when she first came out and even now I’m not blown away. But I thought that she had a rhyme style that would’ve flowed with mine that I liked. And I said I could kind of see myself rapping with her. So I was like ok, let me make some friends here. I threw up the white flag. So I’m over here and Baby asked Slim to ask me to do a record for his album. I did the record. They put Nicki Minaj on the record, No problem. I said let’s do it. Baby was like, ‘Yo, this record is crazy’ when I did my verse he loved it. He was like, ‘I don’t just like it, I love it.’
By now you all have heard about Nicki Minaj putting more effort into her facial tick game than delivering a series of polished performances during her time on the stage at Sunday night’s BET Awards. I received nothing but classic responses when I quizzed my followers on what would be Onika’s excuse for phoning in her featured verses.
You know that 30+ year old female that waits around for her big little grown cousin to get off work to jump bad in her boyfriend’s baby mama’s front yard? That would be Lil’ Kim.
After first dissing Diddy while performing her verse on “It’s All About The Benjamins” she received an extra boost to continue to stretch her arms for Nicki Minaj’s wig when she brought out hometown hero Keys The Problem to spit her anti-Onika freestyle in front of the Bodymore, Murderland crowd.
“Nicki Minaj, she’s definitely one of the great ones. She has a long way to go, but you know how we recognized LeBron [James] was a great one, Tiger [Woods] was a great one, and Kobe [Bryant] was a great one? Nicki is up there. Her story has just begun.” (SOURCE)
Although I’m sure many were disappointed when they discovered that Pride Week isn’t until June, well celebrated muppets from all over Jim Henson’s Workshop (Waka! Waka! Waka!) all lined up for a hot plate of food and fuckery at BET’s Annual Florida Fish Fry over the weekend.
I promise you that the name of this site is not Nicki-Minaj.org! It seems as if people can’t get enough of her foolish facial ticks and foolishness, so don’t kill the messenger. Here are a couple of exclusive flicks from her performance this weekend down at BET’s Spring Bling.
Much to my chagrin and Twitter protesting it doesn’t look like Nicki Minaj’s massive attack on the confused souls in this terrible world is going to stop any time soon. Onika assembled her collection of anatomically incorrect body parts and headed down to Florida to perform at BET’s 2010 Spring Bling yesterday.
