Lil' Kim, an iconic female rapper in her own right, has had a long history of tension with more recent female superstar, Nicki Minaj. Their beef began years ago as people began to compare the two and competition sparked light verbal sparring. Nicki Minaj has also recently become embroiled in a beef with fellow rapstress, Remy Ma. Many believed that Lil' Kim might help Remy Ma with a joint collaboration against Nicki Minaj.
"We all know the situation that's going on with Remy and ol' girl. That's their situation and I have nothing to do with that," said Lil' Kim during an interview withBillboard. "They have rumors out there like, 'Kim is gonna do a diss track with Remy.' First of all, let me tell you this number one, y'all giving ol' girl too much credit. I'm not even thinking about that. I'm not even thinking about ol' girl. I'm so far past that. That's never on my mind. Ever. Ol' girl has never been on my mind for a long a** time at all. So I hate the fact of being in that equation. But the situation with Remy, for them to say that we were coming together to do a diss track? First of all, after hearing "Shether," that s*** is so hard, Remy don't need no damn help! Why would I need to come together for that? I mean, I'm into the music, and I'm speaking musically wise the song is just hard, period!"
