Missy Elliott Says Beef Between Lil Kim & Nicki Minaj "Divided" Female Rappers [VIDEO]
During her stop at MTV's Rapfix Live Wednesday (Sept. 19) she explained that in a battle between female rappers, nobody really wins. “I felt like that situation divided us,” she said of Minaj and Kim.
Elliott and Kim are friends, who worked together on the “Ladies Night” single of yesteryear, and no matter how she may feel about the beef, her loyalty is to the Queen Bee. “Lil Kim is my sister. I've known her for years, and I never turn my back on her.
In spite of her relationship with Kimmy Blanco, Elliott feels that Minaj was merely “out there hustling” noting that no one can “be mad at that.”
Rather than just giving her opinion, the Virginia native also offered an alternative a solution. “There's enough room for everybody,” she added. “I wanna see everybody get it. I love to see women just have their own. You watch the guys do it all the time, they go out on the road with each other. Go on and get that money.
“You don't have to like somebody just [give] respect. Once we got that, everybody I think will be great.”
Since Kim and Minaj haven't gone at each other in a while, here's hoping that they heed Elliott's advice.
