Saweetie Says Lil Kim Has The Best Bar In Female Rap History
Saweetie is giving Lil’ Kim her flowers.
Speaking with Issa Rae for Apple Music’s “Issa’s Raedio Show,” the “Best Friend” rapper revealed who she thinks has the best bar in female rap history, bestowing the honors on the Queen Bee for her 1996 single “Not Tonight.”
“I think Lil’ Kim’s ‘Not Tonight.’ I think this is the best bar in female history,” Saweetie said of the Hard Core classic. “I like when she says, ‘Tryin’ to impress me with your five G stones / I’ll give you 10 Gs, ni**a, if you leave me alone.’ When I heard that, I was like…I felt it. I knew what she meant and that’s just the most boss thing someone could ever say. Like, I love that line.”
Saweetie said her mother put her on to the Brooklyn rap icon when she was growing up. “My mom listened to a lot of Lil’ Kim and Foxy [Brown]. I’ve always liked their demeanor. Their demeanor is just, I know that when they step into the room, you can just feel that bossness. They always just felt so powerful to me.” (rap-up)
