Fourteen years following her last project, the Queen Bee has returned. Lil Kim recently rocked the BET Awards with a medley of her most memorable hit songs and received the I Am Hip Hop Award at the coveted ceremony.
Now the veteran rapper is ready to share 9 with the world after enduring delays that have kept the record out of the hands of fans. “I had no idea it would take this long, but it did,” the 44-year-old rapper told the New York Post. “I’ve had so many ups and down and bumps and bruises, some things I couldn’t get around… It’s all about timing. I’m very spiritual, so I feel like God does everything in timing. And this was God’s timing.”
The nine-track album hosts diverse features from artists like Rick Ross, Musiq Soulchild, Rich The Kid, OT Genasis, and City Girls—and this is only the first installment.
