In a new interview with Billboard, Kim gave her two cents on the developing rap feud between the two MCs.

Despite her past differences with Nicki Minaj and her recent concert with Remy Ma, Lil' Kim has made it clear that she has "nothing to do" with the pair's current beef.

In a new interview with Billboard, Kim gave her two cents on the rap feud between the two MCs, and denied rumors about her recording a "diss track" with Remy aimed at Minaj.

"That's their situation and I have nothing to do with that," she said. "They have a rumor out there like, 'Kim is gonna do a diss track with Remy.' First of all, let me tell you this. Number one: y'all giving ol' girl too much credit. I'm not even thinking about that. I'm not even thinking about ol' girl! I'm so far past that. That's never on my mind. Ever. Ol' girl has never been on my mind for a long-ass time at all. So I hate the fact of that being in the equation."

Since Remy Ma's scathing, nearly seven-minute track "ShETHER" was released Saturday, a slew of fans have responded via social media mocking Minaj in a string of memes and hailing Remy as the victor. The song appeared less than 24 hours after the release of Gucci Mane's latest track, "Make Love," in which Minaj appears to offer a few subliminal lyrics directed at Remy's status in the rap world.

Kim told Billboard there's no reason Remy Ma would need her to jump on a diss track.

"After hearing 'ShETHER,' that shit is so hard, Remy don't need no damn help," she said. "Why would I need to come together for that? I mean, I'm into the music and I'm speaking musically wise ― the song is just hard, period. Just like [Drake's] 'Back To Back' was hard ― just good hip-hop music."

"But I got nothing to do with that," she continued. "So if it ain't coming my way, I ain't got nothing to do with it. Me and Remy is cool. I hate when media do that."

While Nicki Minaj has yet to respond to "ShETHER," on Tuesday Remy highlighted the track landing at No. 2 on iTunes' U.S. Hip-Hop/Rap chart.
