Does Nicki Minaj take blows from Lil Mama? Her “4PM in Calabasas” remix might have your mind popping. You can listen to the track below.
You probably could approximate the Lil Mama/Nicki Minaj diss as a potential analogy to the Meek Mill/Drake beef.
Although the New York artist has far-excelled the lyrical skill she had at that time, Lil Mama’s “Lip Gloss” song is the rapper’s mostly known work. Yet, regardless of Niatia “Lil Mama” Kirkland’s lyrical expertise, this generation still wonders, “Who is she?”
Well, an equally rousing question poses whether or not Minaj will respond and engage in the beef activity. According to Lil Mama, Nicki Minaj has some tendencies of which she doesn’t approve. And similar to how Meek Mill attempted to call Drake out, it seems that Nicki is receiving the same invitation.
Listen to Lil Mama’s “4PM in Calabasas” remix below.

The alleged Lil Mama/Nicki Minaj flame-starter supposedly comes around the 1:18 mark when the rapper mentions, “And, you can be Lebron, Steph Curry, or Kob’ / I’m still numero uno D. Rose.”
To decipher those lyrics from Lil Mama, Nicki Minaj is allegedly just in the limelight. However, when it comes to true lyrical skill, Lil Mama says that she’s No. 1.
Lil Mama’s Instagram shows the New York rapper as she worked on the “Calabasas” remix, an upload from June 17.
As you can hear, Lil Mama continues by rapping as follows.
“And, you was my daughter — like I told you before / It’s M-M-M-M-Mama’s house… So, when you talk, talk politely / And, when you tread, tread lightly / Cause the ice getting thinner / Like ‘six, six, six, six,’ it’s gon’ be a cold winter.”
As you can hear from that section of the “4PM in Calabasas” remix, Lil Mama’s “Nicki Minaj” expression of “cold winter” hits home just as Drake’s mimic of Sean Combs, aka Puff Daddy.
If you listen to Lil Mama’s lyrics, there’s no denying that she’s verbally daunting. Yet, simultaneously, “haters” — as the rapper calls them — refuse to give her props. In the “4PM in Calabasas” remix, Lil Mama further expresses as follows.
“Anybody team get in my way gets ‘blammed’ on / Ain’t no competition, there ain’t no contest / Y’all know I’m the best even if y’all don’t confess / And, when it comes to flows, don’t talk to me about ‘no flows’ / I’m ‘Big Pimpin’, baby, minus the hoes.”
Several people have taken to social media to give their opinions regarding the Lil Mama/Nicki Minaj potential beef. Although the haters are there, Lil Mama appears to have a lot of supporters actually giving her props for her lyrical prowess.
Is Lil Mama back?
Now, Minaj’s fans are calling for the YMCMB artist to respond to Lil Mama’s diss. Accordingly, these fans mention that — once Nicki responds to Mama — it will be of epic proportions.
However, you can hear that Lil Mama isn’t someone who’s afraid to hold her own, lyrically. It might prove to be a great battle of wits.
As far as the remix, Lil Mama’s song is actually labeled “4PM in Brooklyn.” It has gained a sizable notice among media as well as listeners.
Yet, this song isn’t the first of Lil Mama’s remix projects. Recently, the rapper has been keeping afloat with Drake’s “Summer Sixteen,” Desiigner’s “P.A.N.D.A.,” and Rihanna’s “Work.”
You can listen to all three below. Lil Mama actually went the extra mile, shooting music videos for her remixes. You can probably expect one for “4PM” in the future.
