Lil Kim vs Nicki Minaj
In June, veteran US rapper Lil Kim called out Nicki Minaj for a Verzuz rap battle, reported Briefly News.
The Lighters Up hitmaker wanted to go hit-for-hit with Nicki in the battle.
The musician was speaking on Sunday, June 27, at the red carpet segment of the BET Awards.
Kim was quick to say yes when asked if she was willing to go song-to-song against another MC.
When the presenter asked Kim who she wanted to face in a battle of tracks, she did not hesitate and said, Nicki.
Complex reported that it is still unclear if the Beez in the Trap hitmaker would be down to battle Kim.
The outlet said Nicki Minaj and Kim haven’t always been close following artwork-related feud rumours dating back to 2007.
According to the publication, back in 2018, Kim said she was over their beef.
