By now everyone knows Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj are beefing.
Of course there are a lot of different opinions on which side is to blame and how the situation should be handled.
Foxy Brown knows both women very well. She has had run ins with Kim in the past and is on good terms with Nicki, so it should come as no surprise she backs Nicki in the beef.
During a recent interview with Billboard Fox Boogie added her two cents to the brewing battle.
"Of course, people everywhere clearly are saying, "She wants to be Foxy, she wants to be Kim." Everybody's going to say that. But do I think she's doing an incredible job at branding herself? Yes, I do. When you're an icon in the music business…like Mary J. Blige. Keyshia Cole came out after her, [but] you didn't hear Mary J. Blige starting a beef with her just because they compared [Keyshia to] her. Mary J. Blige stayed clean. She does what she does, and I do what I do.
Had she let the people say, "Oh [Nicki], you're trying to be Kim, you're a fake Kim," then it doesn't come directly from her. But when you're using that as a platform to bring your new album out, that's like, "Oh my God, wait a minute." I don't condone it at all; I don't think it's cute.
Nicki clearly drew from both Kim and me. And she hasn't been disrespectful to me in any way -- I haven't heard her be disrespectful toward anybody else but Kim. And at some point, it's like, O.K., Kim, you've had a problem with Foxy, you've had a problem with Nicki, you've had a problem with Faith [Evans], with Charli [Baltimore], with everybody. It's like, enough already. I choose to stay out of it. Put out great music, and that's that."
Should Kim back off the beef with Nicki or continue full speed ahead?
