Is The Queen B back?
This past week Miss Queen B herself, Lil’ Kim went on NYC’s Power 105.1′s
Breakfast Club show to address, well everything. Call it setting the record
straight, from the source. Not to mention perfect timing for her show this
past Friday at The Paradise theater in New York, hosted by Drita Davanzo,
of Mob Wives as well as special guests, Eve, Missy Elliot, Juelz Santana as
well as Peppa of Salt & Peppa to name a few.
In respect of it all, Lil’ Kim was a ground breaker and most definitely a
trendsetter, what Kim brought to the table at her prime was something
we had never seen before and we loved it! Amongst her federal jail time
and drama with other female rappers, watching this interview you could
easily begin feeling sympathetic to her, it most definitely has been a long
road for her and her career. She quoted how “the industry puts women
against each other” particularly female rappers and that was how the
beef between her and Nicki Minaj began. (See Video Part 2) Also she
describes how female rappers got along in the past and stated from
Queen Latifah, down to herself as a rapper, that “we all understood the
essence of music & how it’s supposed to go.”
The interview was eye opening of course, Kim touches on her relationships
with Rapper Maino, Producer and long time love Scott Storch as well as why
we haven’t heard new music from her. (See Video Part 1) Lastly, in touching on
the Nicki Minaj beef, she claimed that the record they did would have been a
great look but in the same sentence says that Nicki is an ” Okay artist” -wait
confused? For both of these ladies there is clearly a love hate going on, not
sure what nor who to believe, when it comes to that subject, seems foggy.
Check out the video clips below. Is hip-hop ready to embrace Lil’ Kim again
and new projects? You be the judge.
