[Editor's note: Deathmatch pairs two artists who have something in common, and determines who is better. It's a concept we sort-of ripped off from MTV, except that instead of claymation it's the printed word!]

Lil' Kim is a rapper who was mentored (and maybe some other things) by Notorious B.I.G. Nicki Minaj is rapper who was mentored (and maybe some other things) by Lil Wayne. Lil' Kim is the first female MC to educate notoriously squeamish male rappers about the joys of cunnilingus and Nicki Minaj continues to champion the cause. Both call themselves Barbies, like to diss the other, and rap about hardcore sex acts. So, who's the baddest bitch? (Hint: not Trina.)

Sex appeal

Nicki Minaj drives both men and women crazy. At first she flirted with lesbianism, giving women hope and men masturbation material. Then, she said she abstains completely, which also works because everybody loves a challenge. Still, raise your hand if you had the Lil' Kim Hardcore album cover poster on your wall.

Point: Lil' Kim

Collaborations

Nicki has collaborated with just about everyone important in pop music today, including Wayne, Drake, Rihanna, Britney Spears, and will.i.am. But Kim jumped on tracks with tons of rappers in the '90s, and there's really no denying those shiny garbage bag jumpsuits.

Similarities to a Barbie Doll

A college student made a life size Barbie doll with her proportions. Add a little more padding around the hips, and it would resemble Nicki Minaj's body on the album cover of Pink Friday. Also, Nicki really nails that unblinking Barbie stare. Still, Lil' Kim probably has more silicone than flesh in her face.

Point: Lil' Kim

 

Probability Of Having Slept With Lil Wayne

Wayne is Nicki's mentor and she spends a lot of time with him. She also calls herself the "Female Weezy." Yet, assuming Lil' Kim slept with Biggie, one suspects Wayne would be thrilled with writing a verse about how having sex with Biggie's ex-gf makes him more like Biggie.

Point: Lil' Kim

Likelihood of Marrying Drake

Lil' Kim and Drake have never interacted with each other, as far as we know. Nicki and Drake, however, once tweeted about getting married. Whatever. Drake probably likes it when women step on him with pointy stilettos.

Point: Lil' Kim

Conclusion

Both Lil' Kim and Nicki Minaj have earned respect for female rappers and spit many verses that are excellent to rap along with when you want to feel badass. It's obvious, however, that Lil' Kim is the true Queen Bitch.
