While Lil Kim seems to be building more and more steam with her public attacks on Nicki Minaj, Drake and Diddy, The Bad Boy mogul seems to be taking the high road.

In an interview with the BBC’s Tim Westwood he stated:

“I want to say I love Lil’ Kim, man. I’m sorry that she’s mad. I never would have thought that by me working with another artist that she would take it the wrong way. But if she’s taking it the wrong way it ain’t meant like that. Nicki never did anything to her.”

He also went on to defend Nicki Minaj and suggests that Kim may be doing this to get a buzz.

“She ain’t trying to swagger-jack or say nothing negative about her. I just think that Kim needs to just understand that Nicki as a whole has always been respectful of her and Nicki’s not trying to be her,” Diddy said. “I ain’t gonna make no apologies for working with Nicki Minaj. [She is] somebody that’s never said anything negative about Kim and just really has always, in my eyes, has paid homage to Kim. ..”

“Kim is gonna be a MC and MCs when they coming back out a lot of times they like to talk crazy and do what they do, ” he said. “At the end of the day, everybody respects Lil’ Kim for being the Queen Bee.”

As for Lil Kim she is going full throttle. After Drake responded to she and Ray-J’s on stage comments against Nicki she retaliated calling him a “Punk P*ssy” in an interview with ThisIs50.com and that he wore his heart on a sleeve for “coming at a girl.”

Kim has not held her tongue when it comes to Barbie either. Recently she went so far as to say that she was going to “bite” Nicki Minaj for stealing her style.  We all are hoping she meant it figuratively.
