Even though we haven’t heard an album for Lil Kim since 2005 it doesn’t mean that she still isn’t one of the best females to touch the mic. Performing last night at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre the Queen Bee showed that she still possesses that sex appeal that she is known for. Hit the jump to check out Lil Kim perform her classics “Magic Stick”, “Get Money” and “How Many Licks”. (more…)Read More
This was the plan. For history to be made during the Nicki Minaj performance at this year’s Summer Jam festival but by the time the time of her performance drew near, the whole performance was a wrap. Here’s what happened.
Well, it all started with Peter Rosenberg who made a comment on-air during the Summer Jam pre-show (Hot 97). He said, “Shout out to all my real hip-hop heads and none of these Starship artists.” The actual video of that comment can be seen above. Then, Mr. YMCMB, Lil Wayne tweeted
This left America wondering what exactly had taken place. Well, Wayne took offense from Rosenberg’s statement and pulled the plug on the remainder of the Young Money performances that evening; by this time, Tyga had already performed.
Well, Nicki fans then began to weigh in on her cancelled performance and she took to twitter to defend the decision and show that Young Money is most definitely loyal to one another.
Now, fans weren’t the only ones voicing their opinions on the cancelled appearance. Funkmaster Flex of Hot 97 weighed in too during his appearance on the turntables.
Now, while no names were dropped, Flex does refer to albums not selling and commercial rappers. Was he siding with Rosenberg on this one? But if Flex is Flex, you can guarantee that he will clear up all the confusion on his show tonight.
Lil Kim also decided to share her opinion on the performance as it was scheduled. Apparently, Nicki was slated to bring out Foxy Brown and Azealia Banks; which would explain the “History” that Nicki was speaking on making in her tweet earlier in the day. The irony is, all three of these female rappers have beef with the Queen Bee. Kim tweeted “Hot damn ho here we go again. Monkey see monkey do. I heard the haters are joining forces against the Queen. LMAO!” She then told Nicki break a leg but followed up with this.
“My love for the female hip hop movement has always been genuine. All the females I’ve been bringing out recently I have love for. If u see anybody else doing it. Its not genuine. Know it’s only to copy and compete with me. For those of u who have been brainwashed by the fraud. Let’s open our eyes now people. The clone is not bringing ladies out for the luv.”
With all that being said, Nicki has been on twitter all day, clearing up the discrepancies from the entire issue. She is however being very classy about the entire situation and deciding to take the high road.Read More

It seems like the recipe for Hip Hop stardom has been given to Azealia Banks; and the main ingredient is BEEF. The Harlem Rapper, who was just added to the Summer Jam 2012 Festival Stage, has just initiated another beef with another female lyricist.
The first time around, Banks was at ends with Iggy Azalea over a slave master lyric used in “D.R.U.G.S.” Although Iggy denies that any racial harm was intended, Banks did manage to get quite a buzz from the debate. Now, she has moved on to bigger names in Hip Hop. Her most recent beef is with rapper Lil’ Kim. The issue apparently stemmed from Banks sending Kim a track hoping to in turn receive a feature from her. After the track was not completed, Banks took to twitter to vent on Saturday.
“It really sucks when someone you respect and admire is trying to act brand new when all u did was reach out and try to work.. I can’t lie.. My little feelings are hurt. Women are so petty…. But whatever… Your loss.. Not mine.”
Today, things got a little more personal and Banks decided to share more insight into where the real issue stands. Basically, when the track was sent to Lil Kim, it was sent with a reference verse. That means that Banks sent Kim a track and the verse she wanted her to spit on it. This didn’t sit well with Kim and her assistant sent an email to Banks which pretty much said we’re gonna pass on this one.
Then, the flood gates were opened, and the following tweets were sent from Banks to Kim.
Okay so true tea is that Lil Kim got mad that I wrote a verse for her on a record I wanted her on.
Everyone knows Lil Kim doesn’t write her own raps and I saw this as a faster more efficient way of getting the track done.
She then had her assistant write me some long ass offensive email about how Lil Kim writes her own raps and doesn’t need anyone’s help.
So….. My question was and is still… IS SHE DOING THE TRACK?
Who cares about what you use to do…. WILL YOU DO THE TRACK??!
All this extra sh-t is stupid. Keep closing your own doors ma. @lilkim
There is no beef. At all.
Now, Lil Kim’s camp is firing back accusing Banks of starting a false twitter beef just for the sake of publicity. They released the following statement.
Earlier today a press release went out making a claim that there was friction between Hip Hop Icon “Lil Kim” and aspiring hip artist azealia banks. The release comes as a surprise to our team,being that my client and azealia have NEVER spoke to one another or met AT ALL. Kim was actually very flattered azealia’s public admiration for her, which is why it’s so hard to understand how someone who claims to be a true Lil Kim fan could flip the script so easily on someone who was supposedly their idol.
It is also VERY interesting that NO ONE from her team made any attempts to reach out to anyone from our team to voice any concerns or problems that they may have had. I have NEVER heard of anyone having a conflict with someone they have NEVER met with or personally spoke with. We have no idea what they are referencing and have no desire to discuss the matter any further as there is nothing to talk about. It honestly seems that someone from azealia’s team would rather have her fans buy into manufactured drama instead of buying music. Kim knows nothing of any beef, and furthermore has had nothing but nice things to say about her. We don’t know what this is and will not address this any further. It seems that this is another sad attempt by someone trying to use my client for publicity. We wish her nothing but the best.
@LilKim you DO know that YOUR management where the ones who said u needed us to write a reference verse in the first place .. Right?
BUT I BETTER NOT HEAR NONE OF MY LYRICS ON YA RECORDS MA! I WILL SUE DAT AZZZZZ!
Oh well … I’m still gonna steal all of her outfits & hairstyles … ‘cept I’m gonna keep all the credit and not involve her in any of it.
@LilKim real talk I just want that verse …. ya know..? I’m not really here for ur team and they’re pseudo professionalism
@LilKim u can still use the verse of you want.. Or feel free to write your own. But you should really do the verse
Lol all bullshit aside I’m here for this $$$$$$$$$$$. Let’s get it … Why not?
@LilKim YOU KNOW YOU WANT TOOOOO
