Who’s gassing this ho? BP?
“Gassing”, in this case, is another way of saying “pump up” or “hype up”. As we know, Lil Kim keeps coming at Nicki with more diss tracks… so she asks, “Who is persuading or encouraging this?”
“BP” refers to the oil company “British Petroleum”, infamous for its oil spill a year before this song’s release (which caused a lot of hatred towards the gasoline industry). In Nicki’s pondering question, a whack rapper is being hyped up by a whack company.
And of course, notice the small pun with “gassing” and the aforementioned oil company, as well: oil gets refined into gasoline/petroleum.
BP also refers to “Big Poppa” aka the Notorious B.I.G., who used to write rhymes for Kim back in the day (all of them, by some accounts).
