Sean 'Diddy' Combs Weighs In On Lil Kim/Nicki Minaj Rap Beef
Sean “Diddy” Combs has weighed in on the feud between Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj during an interview with BBC’s Tim Westwood.
The mogul responded to Lil Kim’s growing criticism of Nicki Minaj, who has been accused of slighting the veteran Brooklyn rapper backstage, in addition to borrowing her look.
Over the past few weeks, Lil Kim has called out Nicki Minaj for her alleged transgressions, prompting a reply from fellow Young Money artist Drake.
In a recent interview with Thisis50.com, Lil Kim chastised Combs for his support of Nicki Minaj.
Now, Diddy himself has weighed in, explaining the two artists are in two different “lanes” and completely different types of lyricists.
“I love Lil Kim and I’m sorry that she’s mad,” Diddy told Tim Westwood. “I never thought that by me working with another artist that she would take it the wrong way. But if she’s taking it the wrong way, it aint meant like that. Nicki never did anything to her. Nicki aint trying to swagger jack or say nothing negative about her.”
Despite Lil Kim’s recent boasts of being ready for a battle with Nicki Minaj, Diddy said the newcomer had “no beef” with Lil Kim.
“Emcees when they coming back out, a lot of times they like to talk crazy and do what they do,” Diddy explained. “At the end of the day, everyone respects Kim for being the Queen Bee. I am always going to love her and remember the good times I had with her. But I aint gonna make no apologies for working with Nicki Minaj. Especially somebody who has never said anything negative to Kim, or somebody in my eyes, who has paid homage to Kim.”
In related news, while Diddy aims to continue producing hit records, he has revealed there is one thing he is done producing for now - children.
During on the UK’s Friday Night with Jonathan Ross Show, Diddy urged fans to wait until they are married to have children.
“I don’t condone having children out of wedlock, but they were my circumstances and I’m a proud father [of six]. I take care of them…I’m not gonna have any more kids until I get married.”
