Eve Speaks On Nicki Minaj & Lil' Kim Beef, New Album
Ruff Ryders' First Lady is working with Salaam Remi on "Lip Lock" and is five songs away from its completion.
Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim have been sparring for a minute, and Eve doesn’t like it. The “Pit Bull in a Skirt” weighed in on the war of words between the two MCs, explaining that Kim needs to stop fueling the fire and instead focus on bettering her career.
“I need her to stop. If I was Kim’s friend, I’d be like, yo. Because she’s Kim, period. So she never has to feed. She shouldn’t,” she told BBC Radio 1Xtra. “It’s bad. It’s not a good look. If I was her friend, I’d tell her, yo, just come back bigger and better. The best way to get at people is to do you better than you’ve ever done you. So that’s it.”
She also gave props to Nicki for holding it down for the ladies in the rap game. “I love it. You know, it’s definitely a nice group of females that’s out representing, but because I come from hip-hop, I need more females in hip-hop,” she continued. “Nicki definitely is holding the flag down, and a lot of people be wanting me to hate just because that’s how girls supposed to do in hip-hop, but I’m loving everything she does. But we need more females, man. There’s too much testosterone in the hip-hop game.”
The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania native gave an update on her oft-delayed album Lip Lock, revealing that she’ll be dropping her new single “Mama’s in the Kitchen” featuring Swizz Beatz in the next few weeks.
“I did another record called ‘Mama’s in the Kitchen’ with Swizz that is ridiculous. In the next couple of weeks, I’ma let this burn for a minute and then I’m going to drop that record,” she said.
She is also working with Salaam Remi on the album and is five songs away from completing the album. “I’m working with Salaam Remi, who if you know music, Salaam is major, major, major,” she said. “I went in with MSTRKRFT, I don’t know if people know who MSTRKRFT are, I went in with them. I’m busy. I got like five more records to do and then I’m done with the record.”
