After photos of Remy Ma and Lil Kim in the studio started popping up on Instagram in September, it was obvious the pair was getting ready to drop something colossal. The two rap vets are finally here with the collaborative single “Wake Me Up,” one of the results from those sessions.
Produced by Cool & Dre, Smitty Beatz and 808-Ray, the track obliterates any of their perceived competition with brutal bars and a hard-hitting, infectious beat.
The line, “That crown I’m gon’ take that shit/ ‘Cause you a clown and homie don’t play that shit,” seems specifically aimed at Nicki Minaj, who has referred to herself as the Queen of Rap in the past.
While there are several other verses, especially on Kim’s end, that could be interpreted as Minaj jabs, during a recent Ebro In The Morning interview, the original Queen Bee denied it has anything to do with Black Barbie.
“I hate that,” Kim said. “My mind is always on that bag … People know me and Remy enough that if we we’re going to talk about somebody, we are going to say their name. We’re going to address them.”
