Renowned female emcee Lil Kim showed up at the 21st edition of BET Awards looking stunning in a short black dress teamed up with heavy jewelry. However, this is not the reason why the Brooklyn emcee was trending on Twitter over the weekend. She got the Internet talking after she expressed her interest in a Verzuz battle and that too against hip-hop icon Nicki Minaj.

The fan following of both the rappers have been arguing over the years on who is the greatest female emcee and therefore when the 46-year-old artist called out Minaj for the face-off, social media users could not keep their calm. They also have been taking digs at each other in the last few years. While a few supported the idea others thought things would go haywire as it would fuel beef between the two. Speaking of Verzuz, we most recently saw the showdown between Bow Wow and Soulja Boy which sparked a lot of hilarious reactions on the Internet.

Lil Kim calls out Nicki Minaj for a VERZUZ face-off

Before stepping inside the venue, Lil Kim was papped on the red carpet when an interviewer asked her whether she would be up for a Verzuz battle to which Lil Kim confidently said “Yes” and when the interviewer followed it with a question asking is there anybody she would like to go against or was she waiting for anyone, Lil Kim then took Nicki Minaj’s name without any hesitation. Showing an interest in her reply, the interviewer said he would love to see that to which the female emcee reverted “me too”.

The feud between the two apparently began when Lil Kim accused Nicki Minaj in 2007 of lifting her artwork for her debut mixtape ‘Playtime Is Over’ from Kim’s artwork for debut album ‘Hard Core’. The two continued to take potshots at each other in the following years. Minaj had dubbed Kim as a “sore loser” in a 2010 interview after Kim said Minaj was not paying homage to those who paved the way for her. Nicki Minaj also reportedly dissed Lil Kim in the 2010 single ‘Roman’s Revenge’ to which Kim gave it back with a song next year with her second mixtape ‘Black Friday’ taking a dig at former’s debut album title ‘Pink Friday.’ However, it seems Lil Kim had a change of heart by 2018 as according to NME, she had said, “God bless her, I wish her the best. I’m past that I’m over it. She did what she did until she’s ready, hopefully, God puts it on her mind to do the right thing because she knows what she did.”







‘If Nicki agrees to do a VERZUZ with Lil Kim it’d be so monumental’

As soon as Lil Kim showed interest in locking horns with her apparent rival Nicki Minaj, a lot of social media users thronged to Twitter to speak about the same. One user stated, “I hope Nicki Verzuz Lil Kim is real i would definitely watch that.” One posted, “I’d pay money for this Nicki Minaj Verzuz Lil Kim. That’s wild! I never thought I’d see her publicly, positively embrace the name Nicki Minaj… S**t’s wild!.”  Another shared, “If Nicki agrees to do a #VERZUZ with Lil Kim it’d be so monumental.”
The next one posted, “Nicki & her fans been claiming that Nicki is better than Lil Kim for years so now that "Lil Kim" asked for a verzuz battle I don't want to hear no excuses. I already hear barbz making excuses saying Kim is irrelevant. If she's so irrelevant then it shouldn't be a problem.” One added, “I don’t want see Lil Kim and Nicki #VERZUZ that would not be good for ladies of hip hop culture. It’s only fueling the fire n beef.” Meanwhile, one noted, “I don’t think Lil Kim should do a #VERZUZ against another person. She’s needs a “Lil Kim and friends” moment like D’angelo did.” One individual concluded, “Idk why Lil Kim said that so confidently like she would win.... anyway make it happen @verzuzonline”
