Look at my show footage, how these girls be spazzin'
So fuck I look like getting back to a has-been?
Yeah, I said it, has-been, hang it up, flatscreen

from Nicki Minaj (Ft. Eminem) – Roman's Revenge Lyrics on Rap Genius


This is one of Nicki’s first direct responses (if technically subliminal — Kim’s name is never mentioned) to Lil' Kim’s provocations

Kim spent most of 2010 claiming that Nicki ripped off her style. Nicki has not responded this directly on record, at least until now

Note also that there is an emphasis on the “BEE” in “has-been” in reference to Lil' Kim, who calls herself the “Queen Bee” (cf. Kim’s song “Can’t Fuck With Queen Bee”)
