The Hip Hop diva feud continued when Lil Kim appeared on the talk show Watch What Happens Live. After dodging several inappropriate and personal questions from the host, Kim was asked her opinion of a certain Grammy performer with a style similar to her own.
I'm pretty sure I feel the same way everybody else feels about it now. If you have to make a song called 'Stupid Hoe,' you must be a stupid hoe, said Lil Kim without hesitating.
There has been bad blood between Kim and Nicki since the younger rapper appeared on the scene, and was quickly accused of copying Lil Kim's style, with her rapid and controversial lyrics. Lil Kim responded to Minaj's rising fame by putting the Pink Friday rapper in her place with an explicit track called Black Friday, which not only put the younger rapper in her place, but reminded the world Lil Kim's lyrical skills are still unsurpassed (ex: I get top dollar for whatever my name on/Go Stick your head in a tomato, brain storm).
The feud was reopened with the release of Nicki Minaj's single, Stupid Hoe, which many speculated was a direct reference to Lil Kim, particularly the lyrics, I get it crackin' like a bad back/B-tch talking' she the queen when she's lookin' like a lab rat.
