    she looks GORGEOUS on that cover, it's too bad she messed her face up so badly.

    on to the point though, i think it's pretty pathetic that it took all this nicki minaj drama to get her in the studio. now she's only doing it because she has something to do. it's not going to be inspired work. and really? a sequel to your first album? at least come up with something fresh like this is just proving the point that you're washed up.

    Perez…you are a very two faced and fake person….tis is all

  3. 3

    Hm, seems like she really wants to show Nicki up.

  4. 4

    Queen Bee for life!!!

  5. 5

    Why would she reuse the name again? Just makes her seem washed up.

  6. 6

    Re: AJSummer – maybe this whole think with nicki is what inspired her? it only takes one event. plus shes been busy opening a hair salon.

    I have mixed feelings about this. If the album comes out in 2011, it will have been SIX YEARS since her last one. You'd think that spending a year in prison evaluating herself would have given Kim plenty of material to come out with a new album by 2007, but no. I feel that Kim has lost her passion for rapping. You could hear it in her delivery in some of her 3rd album (La Bella Mafia), and you could hear it in most of her last album (The Naked Truth). She lost that "oomph" to her voice, and a lot of her songs just sounded lazy, in general. Now, it feels like Kim is putting the album out just because Nicki Minaj called her out on the fact that she hasn't had anything on the Billboard charts for years. If this brings the old Kim back from the days of Hard Core and The Notorious K.I.M., then the album will be great. I think there's a good chance that it will sound ridiculous, though. Anything with The-Dream or will.i.am producing it is going to sound way more "pop-y" than Kim's previous material, and that's just not the Lil' Kim hip-hop fans want to hear from. On the other hand, if they try to recreate the R&B-lounge-meets-hip-hop sound of Hard Core, Kim might come back with a classic rap album.

    OMG I can't WAIT. Hard Core part 1 is a classic. Our Queen Bee is back! um, Nicki who???

  12. 12

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – LOL@ the dream. sooo true! ;-)

  13. 13

    Her face is unrecognizable today.
    I have no idea why she had all that second rate work done.

    And how did being in prison not give her insirpation for new material? And a sqeual? Really Kim?

  14. 14

    i thought she died.it's crazy that she's stayed quiet for so long.

  15. 15

    It's sad. Women are so scared to age naturally. The thing is if they did, they might get a nice supprise lol. You would think that she would have had enough money to make sure that she could get good surgery.

    Anway Hardcore is a very good album, I love it. Not convinved that she wrote any of it, especially listening to her later albums, but she delivered it well.

    Her Black Friday diss of Nicki Minaj was a little lethargic to be honest. I kind of think rap is a younger persons game. Much better when you are full of venom lol

  16. 16

    Lil Kim used to be a very beautiful woman. She did something… and she now looks like a zombie. Anyway, if The Dream and William are going to be there I predict a lot of stealing! LOL

  17. 17

    It's just hopeless. WHEN are these idiot "celebrities" going to quit promoting the use of exotic animals and fur? All I see on this album cover is a very selfish person who contributes to and promotes an abusive and cruel fur industry. Nothing "sexy" about that. It is actually rather sad. Fail.

  18. 18

    Oh my fucking god. PUUUHHHHLEEEASE. What a washed up bitch! She's old and her voice is sick-not in a good way.

  19. 19

    think someone finally has to do the walk, after all the talk…guess she feels a bit threatened

  20. 20

    love Kim, but dont know why Kim and Nicki keep getting compared. they have complete different rapping styles. Anyways love kim and nick,but if i had to choose one over the other its kim no doubt

  21. 21

    Can't wait to cop that album…..hopefully she'll display she has nothing to hate on Nicki Minaj….

  22. 22

    LMAO, come up with Part II to Hard Core? How is she going to do that with Biggie dead and all. It was an excellent album only cuz HE wrote her lyrics!!!!

  23. 23

    wowza, amazing producers! But why follow up, that sounds so stupid. I am looking forward to it though.

  24. 24

    OMG Im SO EXCITED KIM IS THE BEST LYRICIST, better then that hoe nicki and that wannabe gaga, so all you morons can suck it THE QUEEN BITCH IS BACK.

    Lil Kim is so PATHETIC. She seriously is jealous of Nicki and can't let a newbie have any shine. She needs to STFU and go get her trainwreck of a nosejob corrected. She's just piggybacking off of Nicki fame right now, because she really wasn't doing shit before this whole "beef" thing came around. Nicki was ALL ABOUT giving Lil Kim props before lil kim started poppin off at the mouth and CONTINUOUSLY talking shit. Nicki even told Drake to calm down and mind his business but then Kim just kept talking. Kim is like 45 years old it's really not a good look for her to be picking on a girl SO NEW TO THE GAME. ESPECIALLY when HipHop very rarely has a female reach the top and stay there.

  27. 27

    shes a loser…. shes a grown woman, she shouldnt be feuding like this….. its annoying. i dnt even like this music so idk :P

  28. 28


    i hope she shows everyone who's the best

  29. 29

    DAYUM GIRL!! Why did you have to go screw up your face? You were smokin hot back in the day….

  30. 30

    Re: JadedGemy

    Kim is apparently 35, although I'm pretty sure that's a lie lol. I also am pretty sure that Nicki is lying about her age too. She sure as hell don't look 25.

  31. 31

    Re: JadedGemy – amen

  32. 32

    Re: JadedGemy – Another little white girl who doesn't understand what she's talking about. Kim DID reach the top and she IS still there, just because she's not ripping up the Billboard charts, she still has a massive following.

  33. 33

    NEVER will I buy it.

  34. 34

    Re: sohaveiforyou83 – hmm, good writing, good review..do you have your own blogg about this? I would like to watch that! just an idea! but anyways, i was a huge fan of Nitourous and Bella Mafia, both were grade A…but i do think kim is doing this for a point, and her black friday track…GARBAGE, i was so disapointed coming from and Queen Fan. I am looking forward to this album of course, but no good is going to come from this…..i have my eyes and ears open!!! LET THE DRAMA BEGIN…..BUT like said yesterday, no one has sold more albums FEMALE wise since Lauryn Hill and thats HUGE b/c if i remeber correctly, that is still Nitourius and Mafia time, so Nicki has already walked the dog, if you asked me…Love both girls! Eve is back out too!! however her new song was horrible! i feel scared for her, if you a female right now in the game, GO HARD OR GO HOME b/c if not Nicki will take your spot……Foxy!

  35. 35

    POR FAVOR!!! Nicki is shittin' on wack as lil' Kim! The only thing that hoe has been on top of was Biggie! Last time her ass was on the Billboard charts was 5 years ago and all comps. She is a HATER! There is no comparison between the two. Nicki's range is all over and she is very diverse while Lil Kim just thinks of a hundred different was to rap nasty ass lyrics. She clowned in "Roman's Revenge" with lyrics like; So what I look like gettin’ back to a has-been?, You play the back, bitch, I’m in the front
    You need a job, this ain’t cuttin’ it, and the K.O was when she dropped "Nicki, she’s just mad ’cause you took the spot”
    Word, that bitch mad ’cause I took the spot?
    Well, bitch, if you ain’t shittin’, then get off the pot
    Got some bitches out in Brooklyn that’ll off your top" As her boy(Kim) Diddy would say " Take that, take that, take that…Kim needs to hang it up and stick to Skin Bleaching, fucked up weaves and Rhinoplasty! Step back and make way fro Nicki, her and Young Money are at the top. Kim just needs to give credit where it's due! The only thing that brough her out waws gappin' open for Biggie!

  36. 36

    lil kim even sucked back then…and i can actually listen to nicki's songs and enjoy them which is rare, sincei odnt even like that type of music…but lil kim is just plain trash,,and no1 even calls her a Queen, this is all in her head.

  37. 37

    Re: good opinion – so what if lil kim only got out there cause of biggie….you think nicki would be where she is without lil wayne? cause i sure as hell dont.

  38. 38

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – Forreal. The Dream fucks up every song he does. They all sound alike - generic and overproduced.

  39. 39

    So basically Nicki Minaj got her back in the studio. Lawl, sad reason. But I'm still looking forward to hear some new Kim ;]
