Lil’ Kim Decapitates Nicki Minaj On Album Cover

This is just horrible. Lil’ Kim has taken her beef with newcomer (and global superstar) Nicki Minaj way over the edge. Kim, who’s been obsessed with Nicki for um…daring to be another female rapper we suppose, released her new album yesterday.

WTF was she thinking?!

The album, Black Friday, is a play on Nicki’s own Pink Friday, which was actually a play on post-Thanksgiving Black Friday. Kim doesn’t seem to get it at all. But the most troubling thing here, is that Kim’s album features a decapitated Nicki Minaj. WTF?

In this day and age of highly publicized anti-bullying efforts, Kim’s album cover shows her cutting the head off of one of her contemporaries and musical peers. A beloved, new woman in the music industry, at that. It’s quite frankly unacceptable. Any person who uses the threat of violence against another person as their de facto promotional strategy is seriously deranged. It’s honestly hard to believe that in the wake of the Arizona attacks that led to a Congresswoman being shot in the head, Lil’ Kim would show herself covered in blood, having cut off someone’s head.

Idiot.

What do YOU think of Kim’s new album cover?

  • I think that’s taking it a little far… I mean Kim looks amazing on her cover (if only minus the blood, gore and obvious distaste which doesn’t suit her at all), but the whole… Anti-Nicki? Not attractive.

    And while some like a good cat fight, I for one don’t think that’s mature of Kim.

  • publicity stunt.. that you just played in to. Sex and violence sells. Can you blame her for being a business person? If sex and violence didn’t sell, it wouldn’t be used as a selling tactic. WE have to take responsibility for continuing to propagate the image.. for sending it out as soon as we get it. If we didn’t like it, we should have “turned off the tv” and just let it be. But we don’t. We want to take advantage of the media coverage. Do we blame the artist or do we blame the public that buys and therefore reinforces the tactic?

    Um, it’s an artistic statement. So if we follow the line of thinking here (which, by the way is a bit shocking coming from you), conservatives are justified in their criticisms of everything from PBS and NPR to “The Hangover” and “Get Him to the Greek”.

    Hey, did you know that we’re still fighting two ‘wars,’ the Republican controlled House of Representatives is trying to kill Healthcare Reform and funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and we’re STILL on the losing side on the marriage equality issue? It might make for good copy – somewhere – but I’ve actually come to trust higher standards from Unicorn Booty than this. (Which SCREAMS Fox News,,,)

    Where do you buy your music, btw, Walmart – where they’ve been censoring albums for lyrics and artwork for decades now?

    Lil’ Kim has always shown that she will do her own thing, classy or otherwise. My disappointment comes less from the tacky display of violence than from the unoriginal route she is choosing to represent her. Competition is a lovely, necessary thing but she’s using it as a crutch. If her music and image do so little for her that she has to rip off of someone else’s, woe is she.

  • Nikki Minja or whatever is a gross copy cat of Lil Kim. I love the album cover. Nikki Minja or whatever just needs to go away.

  • I think you need to lighten up.

    I personally find this album grotesque and way over the top. And talk about a rip off? “Black Friday”….couldn’t think of anything original?
    Obviously her music isn’t cutting it, so she has to resort to other means of gaining attention.
    Pretty sad if you ask me.

  • Tulla

    Soooo…is Nicki a copy because she raps? Oh no wait! It’s because she’s a woman, right? No, no, no…I got it. It’s because she’s black! Am I right?

    I’ve never seen anything to show that Nicki is a copy cat. Please, inform me, because right now it just seems like you are a little kimmy fan-girl who’s mad because there is something bigger and better out now.

  • I think it’s funny. Maybe I just have a sick and twisted sense of humor, but Rap artists are well known for “beefing” each other for little to no reason. They are competing in the same industry, so I say why the hell not? Nicki Minaj will most likely get her punches in soon, so why don’t you just calm down, sit back, and let the cat fight commence?

  • At the very least, it’s one of the crappiest pieces of album “art” i’ve ever seen.

  • F*#ck Nicki Minaj, I could care less…she is not that talented, its all reliant on her look(overcompensated). This is unprofessional but, thats expected from brats.

  • psss…. whatever. it was funny. it was shocking. it did its job. rap thrives on beef. its a step BACK from shooting at each other. sheesh.

  • Have you ever listened to rap lyrics? Or even just Lil Kims lyrics? Because a stunt like this should not come as a shock to anyone from Lil Kim. It’s just for publicity, so what is there to get so worked up over?

  • I believe in Lil Kim’s freedom of speech and support her right to design her album cover any way she chooses. If she chooses to show the world how completely incapable she is of producing intelligent, mature art or of sharing the spotlight with another talented artist without becoming intensely threatened, that is her right. Just as it is the right of every consumer who values good taste and maturity to walk right past Lil Kim’s uninspired crap-fest to pick up a copy of Nicki Minaj’s brilliant debut album.

    Apparently, her ploy worked. How many people have now seen her album. The cover did what it was supposed to. Every follower of Unicorn Booty now has an advert for Lil’ Kim and NOT Nicki Minaj. You have to give her props for the brilliance of it all.

    i think its fabulous. and all this talk about being tasteless and nothing a real artist would come up with is kind of backwards and bogus. just because u don’t like it and think it tasteful. doesn’t mean that other people don’t. i happen to like both artists. work it out ms LK

  • This is exactly what Lil’ Kim wants! She wants people to freak out, to be outraged, etc.

    Personally, I think rap is shitty, but this was a genius marketing tactic. As well, she’s creating a rivalry in the industry that will boost BOTH of their sales, so I can almost guarantee you Nicki is in on it as well. They’re both making money off of this…

    If you really thought it was so distasteful, then you shouldn’t have brought it up, because now you’ve brought even more attention to it…

  • Gerard Miller

    It is part of the culture of battle rap to decimate your opponent, threaten bodily harm/death. Lil Kim was a member of Junior M.A.F.I.A., for goodness’ sake! i think most of the people upset over this are butthurt that she has chosen this little girl as her target, who just happens to be the latest talentless pop sensation (and gaylebrity). i LOVE Lil Kim, and applaud this move… would the real Queen B please stand up?!

  • Ruthann Byers

    kim’s an idiot. if she had any self esteem she’d validate herself instead of tear down someone else. if her albums don’t sell as well as nicki’s then either its because she isn’t as good or her management and marketing team aren’t as good. both having nothing to do with this other performer. but ultimately, it doesn’t matter because rap sucks. it use to be about the mastery of language and music, ya know actual SKILL. now its about “battle rap” …”mafias”…? so, violence, gangs, shiny new toys like guns and cars and material property, money, drugs, number of hits….. this is rap. its like a bunch of kindergartners running around playing war, showing of their new slap bracelets and trying to see who can count the highest. kim is nothing more then a playground bully, trying to get the attention back on her. “HEY HEY! PAY ATTENTION TO ME! LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!” pathetic. maybe she could go get a real job, and some clothes that actually cover her skin while she’s at it.

    So Nicki Minaj puts out an album cover where she is clearly a fake doll, a Barbie, and you are getting bent out of shape because Lil Kim chopped her plastic head off? Please, not to mention that it’s a mixtape. It’s not like everyone is gonna see it line the shelves at Target. And yep, Pink Friday is a play on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. Lil Kims Black Friday is referring to death, so no, it really isnt all that dumb of her to reuse “Black Friday”. Plus, when two famous people are fighting, it generates tons of publicity for everyone! So even while Minaj is getting her plastic head popped off, she’s still getting plenty of attention. Anyway, Nicki Minaj is cash generating gimmick for the most part. Really way overrated.

  • Standard procedure in the world of rap.

  • Plastic heads don’t gush blood. Please think before you speak, you sound rather stupid.
