I was going make a thread about Lil Mama, but I do think it's because of Nicki Minaj. Everyone started to not pay attention to Lil Mama anymore once Nicki Minaj came to the music scene.
Eh, people forgot about Lil Mama long before Nicki was on the radar. She's a one-hit wonder, her music never had enough going for her to be more than that. I can't hate too much on her though, because "Lipgloss" inspired this masterpiece:

She needs to work with Avril again and get them both that #1 smash.

Techincally Lil' Mama isn't a 1 hit wonder. She had 2 hit singles from 1 album and for a female rapper that was exceptional. She just fell off and didn't get enough label support. They didn't push her even tho her songs were doing better than her labelmates.
She has a lot of talent. She can dance her ass off, she can sing, and she did have rap skills.She also had a brand. Nicki had nothing to do with anything.
I'll never forget when Eve and Alicia Keys made a song about their escapades of strap ons and KY jelly.
