During an interview in November, Nicki Minaj called rapper Lil’ Kim a “has been” -- among other things. Clearly Kim isn’t taking the jab well. On the cover of her new mixtape Black Friday, released on Valentine's Day, is an image of a beheaded and dismembered Minaj in a pool of blood with an obviously victorious Kim holding a bloody sword.
Gloating over her early sales, Lil' Kim tweeted: "Thanks to you guys!! The Black Friday mixtape sold 113,000 copies in 28 hours which made me the #1 seller on paypal ever =) THANK U!
Nicki's Pink Friday hit number one on Billboard last week after riding the Top 10 charts for the past eleven weeks. She did some tweeting of her own: "Bwaahhhhahahaha!!! "lifeless" "leaves on stretcher" "can't go on" and followed it up with one final insult: "The devil is a liar."
Black Friday actually takes a couple of shots at Minaj. One of the songs, Pissin' On Em, is set to the tune of Nicki's Did It on Em and makes the accusation that Nicki is a "Lil' Kim clone."
Has Lil' Kim crossed the line? Where do they go from here?
