We thought things couldn't get any better on Verzuz after our 2000s OGs went at it (shoutout to Bow Wow and Soulja Boy). But then Lil' Kim dropped a bombshell that's got everyone talking. Here are all of the details on who the 46-year-old artist wants to go up against.

During the BET Awards red carpet pre-show, Lil' Kim showed no hesitation about who her ideal Verzuz opponent would be. And surprise, surprise, it's old nemesis, Nicki Minaj. That's right - it looks like we might be watching our two rap queens hash out their beef on the small screen.

"Not going to say who against, but would you do a Verzuz?" DJ Envy asked the rapper on the red carpet. "Is there anybody that you would do it against, or you just ready for anybody?" he added. And then the Grammy winner firmly answered, "Nicki."

"I would love to see that," DJ Envy replied. "Yes, me, too," Lil' Kim said. Yeah, we're pretty sure everyone would love to see that. This would be one rap battle years in the making. The artists' feud goes back to the late 2000s and has been the source of endless diss tracks and iconic lines in both of the rappers' music.

We're not the only ones excited at the thought of seeing these two on Verzuz. "I think that would be a great match. Lil Kim got them hits," one fan tweeted. "Lil Kim lowkey setting herself up, Nicki got a catalogue with different alter egos in rap & pop. Good luck ma," someone else wrote. Who do you think would come out on top? We'll be keeping our fingers crossed that this Verzuz battle actually goes down.
