It was the unexpected news many a Lil Kim fan found themselves rejoicing in last night.
Yes, in what marked the first positive news to come from the Rapper since her critically acclaimed ‘Return Of The Queen’ Tour, Kim found herself showered with ‘congratulations’ upon claiming she was the new ‘First Lady’ of the alcoholic beverage, ‘Ciroc‘.
