The art work for Lil’ Kim’s new album, which came out February 14, is quite controversial. The Black Friday album cover features Kim with a knife and a beheaded Nicki Minaj in a pool of blood.
The album features a track called Black Friday that attacks Minaj, with lyrics calling Minaj a “Lil’ Kim Clone” among other things, and mocked Minaj’s album Pink Friday.
This may seem harsh, but Minaj has played a part in this feud between the two female rappers. Minaj called Lil’ Kim a “has been” on the song Roman’s Revenge last year.
In an interview in November Minaj said, “The same way [Lil' Kim] opened doors for me, I’m opening doors for her. Nobody was playin your music and you damn sure couldn’t get an interview. You getting interviews [now] and every time you do interviews they’re asking you about Nicki. So it’s like we help each other. I respect you, I love you, I’ve said it in every interview time and time again. And if that’s not good enough with you, mama, then it’s something deep-rooted in you. It’s not Nicki Minaj.”
Do you think these two will ever move past all the negative comments they’ve both made and be friends?
