Nicki Minaj was recently tapped the New York Times’ style magazine for a feature story and in it, the Young Money emcee who previously released a MAC lipstick to coordinate with her Pink Friday album, posed for a photoshoot and talked moving to the forefront of female Hip-Hop.

During the shoot, the NY Times asked the Barbie to speak on her current arch nemesis Lil Kim.

Speaking on the Black Friday diss maker, Nicki says that she thinks her negativity “makes it even harder for female rappers” and adds that she’d rather the Queen Bee just give her her props instead of being a “nasty character.”

She tells The Times,

“But the thing that I want to promote is that if you see someone doing their thing, give them their props. We all have it hard and face the same challenges as female emcees. Show some mutual love and respect for each other so that it doesn’t get nasty. And she can be a nasty character.”
