For a while now, there has been speculation that Lil Mama is taking shots at Nicki Minaj in her music, most recently with her summer freestyle over Drake’s “4pm In Calabasas.” On the song, she raps:

“Like I ain’t make these b*tches rock pink hair at some point!”

In a new interview, Lil Mama was asked about the rumors, and she had the following to say:

“To be honest with you, I’m only responding to things that are being said, and I feel like most people they go with who they feel isn’t supreme at the time and say, ‘oh no, she’s doing this, she’s doing that.’ … But because I don’t feel strong enough to attack someone who’s attacking me and attacking my loved ones, I’d rather react to someone that’s picking a fight about maybe whose sneakers are fresher, or who has the latest pair of sneakers. … That’s petty, and I feel like these women, Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Kim, who else – many of them – they are all six to ten to twenty years my senior. I have so much time and space to grow, that even if someone else is ignorant, let them be because once you pass 28, 30, you begin to get set in your ways. I can’t teach older women how to be women – I can only teach the younger generation how to be women.”

She had a lot more to say too, and you can read it in full here!
