Fans react to Lil Kim’s ‘Black Friday’ video

    Lil Kim has released her much-anticipated “Black Friday” video in which her nemesis Nicki Minaj is depicted copying her style.

    Posted Thursday, the video — which shows a Nicki portrayer on the Internet researching Kim and studying her music videos — already has more than 1,975 comments on YouTube.

    So far, there’s a mixed reaction from music fans, some of whom are loyal to Kim and others who love Nicki and consider her the new Queen of Hip-Hop.

    One user posted, “what was lil kim’s lastest song and [where] can you buy her album? [sic] the answer she hasn’t got a lastest song and they dont sell it in a shop this means LIL KIM YOUR OUT THE GAME B*TCH! “

    Others give Kim some credit for her lyrical flow.

    “I Forgot how good Lil Kim was she f_@k!n Sikkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk," one fan wrote.

    Lil Kim delivers the verses in her usual steady-paced style and is sure that listeners can understand every word of her diss track.

    “This ain’t a championship fight. I been the greatest. See the fact is, what you doing, I did it. Lames trying to clone my style and run with it. That’s cool. I was the first one with it. You’s a Lil Kim wannabe; you just hate to admit it," Kim raps.


    Others worry that Kim’s video, which is nearly 7 minutes long, is violent. It does lack the bloody imagery that was present on the Black Friday album cover.

    “This [song is] filled with violence and I’ am [sic] not thrilled about it. It concerns me and even if it about making a combat to respond to Roman Revenge. The lyrics and the video itself disturbs a great deal !!! I dislike it,” reads another comment.

    The song takes aim at Nicki, Drake, Lil Wayne and Diddy, whose voice is dubbed early on in the song referring to Nicki as a “Queen in her own right.”
