While fans wait for their copy of Lil Kim’s Black Friday mixtape in the mail, the Queen Bee drops a video to the title track. The clip opens with a voiceover of the Notorious BIG speaking on his female rap protégé, followed by audio of Diddy Combs commenting on her feud with Nicki Minaj.
“I’m the Blueprint you ain’t nothing brand new, check your posters and videos you’ll always be number two,” spits Kim over the instrumental to Pharoahe Monch’s “Simon Says,” that rhyme an interpolation of a Jay-Z line from his song “Ride or Die” (Vol 2… Hard Knock Life).
In the video, executive produced by the man who kick started Nicki’s career, her first time manager Fendi, Lil Kim is in battle mode, surrounded by her new crew IRS. A yellow Lamborghini is seen being driven throughout the video as well as a Nicki Minaj lookalike wearing different colored wigs.
Of course, the Tweets had opinions.
Lil Kim still has plenty of fans riding with her.
“I LOVE THE @LIlKim Black Friday Music Video !! KIM ALL DAY FUCKK NICKII,” tweeted @jazzyjazzfresh.
“Just saw @LilKim Black Friday video @NICKIMINAJ need to go ahead and take the L,” tweeted @DC_TALLGUY.
“@LilKim The Black Friday video is just fucking hilarious! Sorry Nicki but you got your ass kicked!,” tweeted @MrJackyCola.
However, the Lil Kim slander is still in effect.
“I wish i could wipe my ass with this Black Friday Video by Lil Kim,” tweeted @alexcansing.
“Just saw lil kim black friday video.. Is this a joke? #hangitupflatscreen,” tweeted @FAbulosiJAY.
On the other hand, some people just liked the beat.
“I don’t really like what LIl Kim stands for, but the beat to Black Friday is my SHIT,” tweeted @BeyFierceIV.
Still others feel that Nicki needs to respond in kind because after all, this is hip-hop.
“Look, fxck all the expert rhetoric and critiques. The streets wanna see Nicki v. Kim. Period! Three 16 bars rounds. May the best bxtch win!,” tweeted @JoelRandell.
