Wow! She really hits the nail right on the head with this one!
Foxy Brown recently gave her opinion on the feud between Lil' Kim and Nicki Minaj, and claims that although the new rapper has been compared to her, as well, she doesn't have any beef with her, and thinks that Kim shouldn't, either!
"Nicki has always been cool with me. She and I have something online I did for her — it was a video shoot with Lil' Wayne and Rick Ross, she wasn't signed yet. And she was like, 'Foxy is the first female artist who ever embraced me.' She was classy; she was articulate. I'm so proud of her. 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, you didn't hear Mary J. Blige starting a beef with her just because they compared her. Mary J. Blige stayed clean. She does what she does, and I do what I do. Had Lil' Kim let the people say, 'Oh, 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, with Charli, with everybody. It's like, enough already.' I choose to stay out of it. Put out great music, and that's that."
Say it, sister!
While Nicki has definitely been influenced by Lil' Kim and Foxy, she's going in her own direction! We would like to think that everyone could be as mature about the matter as Brown is, and just be proud of the fact that they paved the way for female rappers with their success!
No need for sour grapes!
What do U think?? Do U agree with Foxy??
