Over the weekend, we learned that Nicki Minaj had probably locked herself in a walk-in freezer to treat the BURN she was given by rapper and Love & Hip Hop: New York star Remy Ma. It all started after Remy felt that she was done dirty by Nicki in a verse from the song Make Love. Remy fired back with ShETHER, a 7 minute diss track. Nicki responded a couple times on Instagram, the gist of which was mostly just Nicki bragging about how her friends are more famous and how Remy Ma’s record sales are bad. They’re not done hissing at each other and now Lil’ Kim is involved.
Nicki slapped back at Remy Ma yesterday by Instagramming (then deleting) a screen shot of the chart position and sales numbers of Remy Ma and Fat Joe’s “disappointing” track Plato O Plomo. That one might not have done so well, but Remy would like Nicki to know that ShETHER, on the other hand, is doing really well. ShETHER was one spot higher than Nicki and Gucci Mayne’s Make Love. Not that Remy cares, of course.

Not long after, she made sure to update ShETHER’s chart progress again after it climbed a little higher.

So how does Lil’ Kim factor into this mess? It’s no secret that Lil’ Kim hates Nicki Minaj, so of course she’s on Team Remy. While performing at a show over the weekend with Remy and Love & Hip Hop: New York cast member Cardi B, Lil’ Kim announced that she’d be interested in working on an updated version of Ladies Night with Remy.
Lil’ Kim picked the wrong outfit to wear while coming for Nicki. That busted Moschino bodysuit is providing enough material for a lifetime of clap-back tracks.
As much as I would die for another Ladies Night Remix, I’m just too afraid of how that might turn out. It’s almost a guaranteed mess. For one thing, if they filmed a video, they’d have to scrap the Florida jet ski scene. Remy Ma has only been out of prison for two years; I’m not sure if she’s allowed to go out into International waters. And I don’t know if Lil’ Kim is supposed to expose her newer parts to salt water.
UPDATE: Lil’ Kim spoke with Billboard recently, and she was asked about her involvement in the Remy vs. Nicki saga. Lil’ Kim says that she has nothing to do with their fight, because she doesn’t care.
“We all know the situation that’s going on with Remy and ol’ girl. That’s their situation and I have nothing to do with that…I’m not even thinking about ol’ girl! I’m so far past that. That’s never on my mind. Ever. Ol’ girl has never been on my mind for a long ass time at all.”
Lil’ Kim goes on to add that if she did work on a Ladies Night thing with Remy, it would only be because they’re friends and not because they want to gang up on “ol’ girl.”
Speaking of music videos shot in Florida, here’s Nicki Minaj on the set of a music video with Future in Miami. Hmmm…a fur coat and a bikini. How very Lil’ Kim of her.
