The Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj feud rages on as the rap vixen spoke candidly about how the beef started between. During her interview with New York Power 105′s Breakfast Club, the Queen Bee insists that it was Minaj who started the beef first by bringing animosity towards her.

According to MTV News, Kimmy Blanco was on course to join Cash Money Records and be label mates with Minaj. Things went sour after a song that featured Kim, Birdman and Minaj was ignored at radio. “They put the record out. I guess they didn’t like the response — they saw the response and they pulled the record off, pulled it back, never put it on his album [2009 'Priceless'], nothing,” Kim explains.

The ‘No Time’ rapper believes Birdman and company didn’t want two competitive females on one track and turned their back on her. “If that would’ve been a big video and a big event record, that would’ve been big for both of us,” says Kim. “But I personally think they didn’t want me to stand beside her, which is stupid.”

Kim further asserts that Minaj copied her style and sound on her new song ‘Automatic,’ which she claims is the same unreleased tune she presented to the Cash Money label three years prior.

In the end, Kim believes that Minaj is a copycat who has a problem with being original.

“The problem with her is she was very catty with it. I never had a problem with her,” she insists. “I was always, always nice with her, always. She was a very obnoxious person, but I was always nice with her.”
