A video clip of Lil Kim claiming she is hoping to do a remake of ‘Ladies Night’ with Remy Ma and Cardi B turned into some media outlets reporting that the trio would be recording a Nicki Minaj diss.
However, Kim tells Billboard that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Here’s an excerpt of the interview:
There’s also a possibility you may be doing another type of “Ladies Night” collaboration on this project.
I’m glad you brought that up, because in the media the other day, I had a show and I hate stupid blogs when they try to take my damn situations and clip them. 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. They have a rumor out there like, “Kim is gonna do a diss track with Remy.” First of all, let me tell you this. Number one: y’all giving ol’ girl too much credit. I’m not even thinking about 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 a*s time at all. So I hate the fact of that being in the equation. But the situation with Remy, for them to say that we were coming together to do a diss track? First of all, after hearing “ShETHER,” that sh*t is so hard, Remy don’t need no damn help! Why would I need to come together for that? I mean, I’m into the music and I’m speaking musically wise — the song is just hard, period. Just like [Drake’s] “Back To Back” was hard — just good hip-hop music. But I got nothing to do with that. When I had my situation and my situation came up, I handled my business. If anybody comes to me, if ol’ girl came to me, I’ma give them the business. That’s just the bottom line of it. So if it ain’t coming my way, I ain’t got nothing to do with it. Me and Remy is cool. I hate when media do that. That’s the thing.
What I said was, “Shout out to the beautiful ladies who was on this stage with me tonight, Cardi B and Remy!” because we needed more of that. We don’t do shows together like the men do shows together. That’s what I said! I said, “It’s about time for another ‘Ladies Night,’ and maybe you’ll see something in the future,” because we’re putting it together! Me and Cardi are already working. I already have stuff in the works with Cardi. We’ve been sending each other texts back and forth. A long time ago when Remy first came home from jail, she sent me a text, so we were kind of already working.
What I was saying was it’s about time for another “Ladies Night” song. Let me explain something to you – I’m a hustler first. The “Ladies Night” record got me a Grammy nomination and several MTV [award] nominations, and we performed the song on MTV during one of the biggest awards moments and my album went double platinum. At the end of the day, I want another one of those. I ain’t thinking about no other bullsh*t, because like I said, this ain’t what you want when it comes to that because I’m an extremist. Plus, I already handled my business. Everybody else already know, I already put it down. Once that situation came at me, I addressed the person. Like I said, that’s done and over with and they know what it is. That person knows what it is. Me and Remy is cool so I just want these blogs to keep my damn name out the bullsh*t.
So moving on from that, I would like to have something like that on my new album. Even if I just did records separately with different females, it’s still the unity. I was looking at the footage of me, Cardi and Remy all up there on that stage, and everybody did they thing, everybody held they own. I’m also in the business side of things. I also stepped my game up from when I was a kid in the game and I was not really business-minded. I just was told what to do, so now I’m putting business moves together.
Good. Kim teaming up with Remy to diss Nicki again would have made her look very bitter and weak. Black Friday is all she needed to say about the subject.
I agree with Kim. Remy can stand on her own two feet and so can she. But can they not recreate Ladies Night? It’s a classic and should be left alone.
Cardi though? I don’t want her on a Ladies Night remake. She’s cool but I don’t take her rapping seriously.
I wish people would leave classic songs and movies alone. Damn.
Me too. They are all talented enough to come up with something new that knocks.
Ugh me too!
I like the idea that Lil Kim and Remy and Cardi B are working together. I think with the 2 of them working with her says a lot being that they are beast in hip hop. I think Cardi will be able to bring it. It seems like some of the music business people on LHHNY under estimated Cardi. Out of all of them she is the one who rised. I can see her being a break out artist this year.
So I guess it’s safe to say that Nicki won’t be responding to Remy.
Nicki should be thankful because that would have been another L for her.
Let em know Kimberly.
Ladies Night was the sh-t!! The song was massive, the video had cameos from ALL the hottest female rappers, singers, and actresses in it at the time. I always laugh when I see Mary J dancing bare feet on that platform with them Lmao! With that being said, don’t mess up something so iconic Kim.
