The Queen Bee said female rappers don’t understand the importance of unity. ”You have other women out there who want to be by themselves. They don’t get the art of unity and what inspired that. You can’t come in the game and think, “Oh, okay, I’m going to be the only one out here. I don’t want to stand in the line with no other chicks.” It’s still a struggle because when a woman makes it to the top, it wasn’t like that when we were out,” she explained.

“When we made it to the top, the real divas—me, Missy, Eve—we had no problem standing in a line. Look, let’s get this money. We did songs together. We just kept continuously doing it even when we didn’t like each other,” she continued. “We did photo shoots even when we couldn’t stand each other. It was more real.”

Despite the jealousy and separation she described, Kim said she’s hopeful that the game will change.

“That’s whack. That’s real corny, but things will change,” she said. “That’s the one thing for certain—two things for sure. Things will change.”
