Here are some excerts from the duo on set for the "Down on Me" Video.
While exhorting the virtues of his fellow Queens native, 50 also pointed out that he "loves" Lil' Kim, Minaj's rival. Back in 2003, 50 collaborated with Lil' Kim on "Magic Stick," off her La Bella Mafia LP.
"I understand why people make the comparison between her and Kim, because of the wigs, the hair," 50 said, drawing laughs from Jeremih. "But I kind of see similarities in her and Foxy's career. Foxy was in the Firm and down with Jay-Z, the way Nicki was in Young Money, and down with Gucci [Mane]. I see that the same way they kind of came in with the support of two crews, like Foxy did."

"Lil' Kim is dope as well, "I think Nicki, it's not that many female lyricists out that can do what she does. She makes me want to ride to her — you can't ride to every female rapper. I think she makes it easy for us fellas to ride to. And I think she's sexy and has a personality like no other."
