4 shows into Lil’ Kim’s cross-country tour, the female MC and her guest Ray J took New York City’s Fillmore at Irving Plaza to perform “Wait a Minute” and voice their opinions on the current state of females in the industry. According to HipHopDX.com:
Ray J took a moment to express his feelings on females in rap, primarily Nicki Minaj. “I’m seeing a lot of Lil Kim imposters,” Ray J stated. “I’m not saying no names, but you know who,” he continued, referencing biting Kim’s style after calling Kim the greatest female rapper ever. Lil Kim added, “We love her. We just want her to pay homage,” making an obvious reference to Minaj. “If you don’t pay homage then f*ck you,” she concluded.
