Usher unwittingly decided to on Instagram Live with Swizz Beatz and throw around some possible combinations and match ups they could think for Verzuz TV.
Usher was thrown the idea of Nicki Minaj, who has bene making headlines and enjoying the top spot with Doja Cat, and Lil Kim and proceeded with saying that Nicki “was a product” of Lil’ Kim.
Yes, Twitter and the Barbz have been let loose.
“Usher said nicki is a product of Kim like Nicki ain’t surpassed kims ass 10 times over and Kim can’t even rap no more. How can a product out do the original? No sequel to a amazing movie does well most times… so how can nicki be a product of another bitch? Nicki is nicki,” said one of many Nick Minaj’s ardent fans.
Um, but just to clear something up. This is a quote from Nicki Minaj in 2009 — quite early in her career — she said this when she was asked to name her top 5 rappers, “Kim is the pioneer for my generation. She’s the trend setter. She’s the Queen Bee.” So really, Usher is not ways off when he says quite blatantly what Nicki had confessed a decade ago.
