LisaRaye McCoy recently weighed in on the conversation about Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj, and the Barbz bit back.
If you thought we'd settled this whole Lil Kim influencing Nicki Minaj debate long ago, you're highly mistaken. Recently, Usher got caught up in the wrath of the Barbz after he told Swizz Beatz that a Verzuz battle between Nicki and Kim wouldn't work because the Queens rapper is a "product" of the Brooklyn emcee. This sparked debate once again on social media, and now LisaRaye McCoy has found herself to be the target of irate fans.

While speaking about Usher's controversial comments on Out Loud with Claudia Jordan, LisaRaye praised Kim for her contributions to the rap game. After Claudia Jordan clarified that Usher didn't say anything negative about Nicki Minaj, LisaRaye chimed in. "We can all stand together queens and we can all say that all of us are acknowledging the fact that Kim came before Nicki Minaj," LisaRaye said. "So Nicki, just take a seat. You don't have to sit down for long, but just take a bow. Just like Beyoncé said, 'Bow down b*tches."
