The whole so called ‘beef’ involving both Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim has been the center of the whole female rap scene for a good while.Rapper Trina and Keri Hilson, whom recently found her freaky side, were asked about their thoughts on the topic. The interview clips are below, but here is what they both basically said.I don’t think it’s good for hip-hop. I think hip-hop, especially when it comes to women, needs to unify. I think there needs to be a bridge that’s built together because you have so many new and upcoming artists that’s trying to actually get in the hip-hop genre and be a part of it and I think they get drowned in the midst of it

I think we’re all adults, we’re all grown and we need to handle our business like women. Just continue to do what we’re here to do and that’s make music and just be great people.”


I don’t really know what to think of that beef. I don’t put too much thought into it because you don’t really know what’s really going on. I know because I’ve had similar ‘rivalries’ and I know how much was spun by the media.

Lil Kim is a pioneer for females in rap and rapping and being as vulgar and forthcoming as she was. Nicki Minaj is doing her own thing. Of course she’s said she was inspired by Lil Kim and we can see that. I don’t think that means that they have to compete.
