Lil Kim– regardless of what you think of her- is iconic.
Yes, while the above should be obvious to any in tune with her career, recent years have made her legacy all too easy to forget.
Indeed, while many of her contemporaries have gone onto become world figures and moguls in their respective fields, Kim- rather unfortunately- has evaded such success.
Plagued by ‘shady’ contracts, petty feuds, misplaced loyalty and poorly handled business dealings, she has missed out on the respect afforded to Missy Elliott, Lauryn Hill, Jay Z, Nas and the like- despite her contributions to Hip Hop’s crossover period in the early noughties.
And now, at almost forty years old, she’s been reduced to a ‘stage in the backyard’ act, performing in questionable locations just to make ends meet.
So, now that her career has hit the pits, we ask:
If you were her manager, how would you take her back to the top?
