The Diddy-Dirty Money frontman, who has worked closely with Nicki, claims that although he isn’t as close with Kim as he once was, he will always have love and respect for her.
He told Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex: "My whole take on the situation, is that I love Lil' Kim no matter what's going on, no matter what's being said. Kim definitely has a responsibility for my success. Me working with Nicki Minaj has nothing to do with going against Kim. When Kim works with other producers, when she raps with other artists, I'm not getting upset. It's not a problem.
“I think a lot of us who have been here for a long time, including yourself Flex, we have inspired a lot of people. We have motivated a lot of people; we have touched a lot of people in a certain way. We have been those cats that people aspire to be. I wouldn't be around Nicki if I ever heard anything negative said about Kim. I've never heard anything like that."
