Missy Elliot is back on the airwaves after taking a seven-year hiatus from rap.
During her stop on RapFix this week, Missy was asked to weigh in on the infamous Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim beef. Instead of choosing sides, the platinum selling rapper calls for unity among females in hip-hop.
“I felt like that situation divided us,” Missy told Sway Calloway of MTV’s “RapFix Live.”
“There’s enough room for everybody,” Missy added. “I wanna see everybody get it. I love to see women just have on their own. You watch the guys do it all the time. They go out on the road with each other, probably don’t like each other. Go on and get that money.”
“She’s out there hustling, can’t be mad at that,” she said about Nicki Minaj.
Missy Elliot said Lil’ Kim, who she recently did a collaboration with, is like a sister to her.
“Lil’ Kim is my sister. I’ve known her for years and I never turn my back on her,” said Missy Elliot.
Missy said she hopes both Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim can move past their issues and show respect for each other.
