Hot97 Juan Epstein Interview + Rap-Up Interview
Lil Kim went in on a ton of old school topics… from Biggie, to Junior Mafia, Puffy, Foxy Brown, and Kanye West. Then she got into her love life, jail time and of course Nicki Minaj. A must listen to interview.
The sales of Lil’ Kim’s mixtape Black Friday are a hot topic of conversation. The rap diva claims to have sold 113,000 copies of the $9.99 release via PayPal within 28 hours, but some have questioned the authenticity of those numbers. The Queen Bee stings back at the critics and Nicki Minaj in an exclusive interview with Rap-Up.com.
You tweeted that you sold 113,000 copies of Black Friday within 28 hours. Is that accurate? Right now it could be more.
What do you say to those who question the authenticity of those figures? At the end of the day, you’re always going to have your haters. We need the haters. There was actually a representative at PayPal who basically didn’t really confirm or deny it, but also [said] that they’re very happy and proud of the success of Lil’ Kim. I think numbers in other areas speak for themselves. I mean, why aren’t they questioning the Black Friday [video] being at 2.5 [million views] in less than 18 hours? Why aren’t they questioning that? What’s the difference? How can you add up one thing and not the other? I just feel like people pick and choose the area that they want to attack [laughs].
Do you know the current sales numbers? No, I actually don’t know right now. I have a team that kinda checks up on all that. We’ll keep you posted.
Nicki Minaj laughed off your sales claims. Did you see that? I heard about it. I didn’t see it actually for myself, but to be honest with you, homegirl is basically obsolete to me right now. She’s doing a lot of lame stuff. She’s so lame to me right now—she’s always been, but now really. At the end of the day, her sales can be questioned also. Not to say she didn’t have the build-up, but the only thing you kept hearing before her album dropped was nobody liked it, it was wack. Don’t get me wrong, she might have a couple songs that are OK, but who cares. The haters will be haters, that’s their job, and we need them.
