The legendary Queen Bee is breaking her hiatus with her fifth studio album, Nine.
It has been 14 years since Lil Kim has graced fans with an official album. Known for her boss attitude and hardcore bars, Lil Kim has easily established herself as one of top dog female rappers. She has given us hit after hit in the 90s and early 2000s like “Magic Stick,” “The Jump Off,” and “How Many Licks.” Now the Notorious Kim is returning with, Nine.
Live during one of her concerts, she announced the big news:
“Alright, while I’m here, fu*k it. May 17th. Nine, the album. It’s my fifth album. I got some sh*t for y’all. One of my favorites is this record I got with Ricky Rozay. Crazy.”
This may be Lil Kim’s return with an album, but let’s not forget that the Brooklyn native was still hard at work up until this point. She has made multiple mixtapes such as Ms. G. O. A. T., Black Friday, Hardcore 2k14, and lastly Lil Kim Season which dropped three years ago.
The music video for her most recent release, “Go Awff” will be Friday, as well.
Keep an eye out for the album, May 17th!
