Lil Kim – Black Friday (Poppin off at Nicki Minaj)
This is probably one of the only time’s I’ll be so candid on this Blog, but wow son. Everyone has been talking about the beef between Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim for the last few months, without being able to legitimately say that they are going at each other. Until this point, Minaj’s verses on “Roman’s Revenge” had no name in them, so one could only speculate, just as Lil Kim’s performance in New York went without the words “Nicki Minaj” being spoken, but Kim has not broken that barrier with “Black Friday”, a Nicki Minaj diss that is clearly aimed at her rap antagonist. Kim comes on with all guns blazing over Pharoahe Monch’s “Simon Sez” beat, and delivers some of the best lines she’s had in years, (…[I'm] more anticipated than a LeBron James ring…) and manages to talk about all of ‘Young Money’. But, I have to be completely objective, so I must say that Kim’s track has no chorus, and she seems to ramble on at times, and you’d with there was some break in her non-stop rhyme spitting. All in all though Lil Kim came quite hard with some ridculous, and anyone who takes female rappers seriously (which should be everyone) will be quite curious as to how this debacle will progress.
