These days, it seems impossible for a female artist to conduct an interview without Nicki Minaj’s name being brought into the conversation. Both Lil Kim and Mariah Carey know this.
But unlike those music vets, rapper/ former America’s Best Dance Crew judge Lil Mama didn’t hold anything back when discussing the female rap game or the Young Money starlet.
“A lot of times, I hear [Nicki Minaj] say. ‘I do this for women,’ and ‘I’m doing this for all of us,’ while she’s accepting a BET award, but other than that I don’t see her embracing any other women,” Lil Mama told Hollie Wood & Friends.
This wouldn’t be the first time Mama has thrown shade at Minaj. In 2011, the “Lip Gloss” rapper told VIBE that Nick had jocked her style, specifically her hairtstle. “My cut is blunt and futuristic and Nicki Minaj started wearing that bob on her head after she came to my show, so at the end of the day I know what I do and I know what I possess and I know who I am,” Lil Mama said. “I’m a trendsetter. The biggest form of flattery is imitation so I’m flattered.“
