What a tangled web Hip Hop Royal Lil Kim continues to weave for herself.
For, after spending the last year and a half trying to claw her way back into the public eye following her war of words with Pop Princess Nicki Minaj, she is now facing criticism from her very own fans.
Fans, who accuse her of putting her friendship with boxer Floyd Mayweather before the release of the new material she had promised them at the end of 2011.
Full story below…
Nearing the end of last year, the entertainer revealed the release of a yet to be titled EP,which she told fans would become available to them at the start of this year, 2012.
Building buzz for the project with the well received cut ‘I Am Not The One‘ and this promotional image, many of her loyal supporters were led to believe that the New Year would see confirmation of the EP’s release date and news with regards to her current label situation.
Unfortunately for them, today saw reports emerge which revealed that she is now putting all those plans on hold to dedicate her time to support Mayweather, who is currently facing jail time for allegedly assaulting the mother of his children right in front of them back in September.
Of course, this came much to the contempt of Jones’ fan base who took to the social networking site Twitter to air out their feelings with some of the following:
@LilKimWorldWide :It’s been 7 years and they still making up excuses. Enough is enough we want music. Nobody’s mad because she’s supporting Lloyd, we’re mad because she hasn’t said sh*t
SirAlexCarter :No shade Kim is 36 years old, wtf is she waiting 4.I’m not going kiss her ass.
@MrSoFlawless: “FLOYD COMES FIRST THEN THE STANS COME AFTER” (Lil Kim Lighters Up Voice)”
Lilkim_Navy :Kim couldn’t have been 2 worried & upset she been shopping and clubbing daily over Christmas & new years she looks rather happy 2 me.
MrSoFlawless :You tramps gotta understand, Kim ain’t had an album since 2005! So you DAMN right we have every right to be MAD!!!
@Lil’KimWorldWide :When you was on top you could’ve waited 8394 years to drop some sh*t. But when you trying to revive your career you need 2 b on point.
Kim, it’s high time you smartened up.
For, cancelling on and disappointing a fan base who have stuck by you time and time again for a man guilty of a crime you yourself have been a victim of just to goes to show how intelligent you really are.
Quite interestingly, it would seem that Kimberly is allowing her ‘ride or die chick’ attitude to get the better of both she and her career, an attitude- which dare we say- is the reason she spent Christmas 2005 in a Philadelphia prison cell for her involvement in a shooting which took place in 2001.
Only time will tell just how her decision to put her fans second will truly affect her chances of ‘getting back on top’.
