While Urban Islandz don’t endorse beef for what it is, we fully endorse lyrical battles in its pure musical form.
Lyrical battles are a major part of hip hop and dancehall culture. Most deejays and emcees at least once in there career should have a lyrical showdown with a rival. The Nas/Jay-z, Bounty Killer/Beenie Man and Mavado/Vybz Kartel war comes to mind. At the end of the day all these war were settle via the mic, or at least a one of them partially. But we never had a lyrical battle between two females looming like this one.
For some time now Trinidad native rapper Nicki Minaj and Jamaican native deejay/rapper Bambi has been in a lyrical battle. Not beef per say, at least according to the massive at Redsq.
The beef has been mostly ignored for the most part in the dancehall and hip hop community, mostly because most of us think its unnecessary one. But it is still lingering around and seems to never end. Therefore, we call on these two hard hitting females to battle it out and move on.
Nicki Minaj may have taken the first step in calling for the battle we speak about. In a track on her Pink Friday album called Blazin featuring rapper Kanye West. You can peep track below.
The lyrics for the first verse of Blazin track number 9 on Pink Friday.
“How could it be, little me
Had the power to be the best B, in the league
Yeah inevitably, but could it be little me
You was heckling me, now it’s monotony when I regularly
I catch wreck on recreation, so I exceed all your expectations
Because I got it in ‘em, I kill ‘em and then I skin ‘em
The contract is on but I am the addendum
So wh-where my dawgs at, Randy
Ma-ma-matter fact, get off my d – – k b – – – h, Andy
Ca-ca-ca-cause everything is fine and dandy
Go against me nooooow, I dare you, Bambi ”
Prior to this Nicki Minaj only subliminally diss Bad Gal Bambi here and there, but now she calls her out directly. Urban Islandz has confirmed with sources close to Young Money, Nicki Minaj label, that she is ready for a showdown.
We have also confirmed with Redsq, Bambi label, that she is ready for a lyrical showdown.
In an email from Redsq team, they confirmed that Bad Gal Bambi mix tape will be in the streets early Jan. 2011, and that she will never let down her fans in any case.
Can’t wait for that one.
Now lets see how these two talented hard hitting femcees battle it out. Stay tune to Urban Islandz for more information and interviews from both camp.
