No signs of a peace treaty here!
Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim managed could have easily come to blows at the Powerhouse concert this weekend however, it seems the ladies managed to avoid coming face to face despite both performing during the event.
‘Starships’ hitmaker Nicki and the Queen Bee were among guests which included Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar and Meek Mill at the event hosted by New York radio station Power 105.1 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Saturday and as if the line-up wasn’t stellar enough, ‘Swimming Pools’ star Kendrick gave fans a surprise when he brought out Lil Kim to represent the late Biggie Smalls.
Speaking to the audience moments before introducing Kim to the stage, Kendrick said: “This is the home of Notorious B.I.G., right? It’s only right that I bring somebody up here that was influential in this motherf-cking game and still is,” before the pair performed B.I.G.’s classic hits such as ‘Get Money’ and ‘All About The Benjamins.’
It seems Lil Kim was brought out as Kendrick’s surprise after “technical issues” meant she was unable to perform with Love & Hip-Hop New York star and R&B singer K Michelle but the ladies managed to hang out backstage.
“With my baby @kmichellemusic @kmichelle it was great to finally meet U 🙂 🙂 !!!!! Muahhhh !!!!”
Lil Kim wrote alongside a photo of her pal while K.Michelle added on Instagram: “We was supposed to rock the stage together tonight but due to technical difficulties it didn’t happen. It’s cool she held me down!”
One person who isn’t taking sides in the ongoing spat between the female rap stars is K.Michelle’s fellow L&HH star Yandy Smith who was spotted mingling with both Lil Kim and Nicki backstage at the bash.
Meanwhile, Nicki, who flaunted her curves in a lyrca jumpsuit, put on a show of her usual booty-popping, twerking theatrics on stage alongside Meek Mill who brought the Young Money starlet out during his set.
The pair performed their collaboration ‘Dope Dealer’ which also features Rick Ross while Nicki also rapped her verse on from YMCMB’s ‘Tap Out’ and DJ Khaled’s ‘I Wanna Be With You.’
