Indeed, ‘How Many Licks’ hitmaker Lil Kim has taken to Twitter to unveil her “12 Days of Christmas” campaign – one that, according to the pint sized rapstress, is set to unveil a surprise each day leading to December 25.

Ask hip hop’s reigning highnesses – Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliott, and Nicki Minaj – and they can attest to being titled such at some point in their illustrious careers (the latter more than her rap predecessors).
Indeed, in the heavily male-dominated genre of rap, trying to “hang with the boys” has either constituted hypermasculinization or explicitly detailing bedroom antics. Either way, rap’s estrogenic entities have had to take the extreme route often to little notoriety…

However, tweets that followed her announcement have seen her alleged deal with the company thrown into disrepute.

With a career spanning almost twenty years, Lil Kim is undoubtedly one of Rap’s more popular living legends.
Yes, while recent years have seen her ‘mainstream’ appeal fall prey to irrelevancy, there is no denying the ‘No Time’ Rapper’s mark on Hip Hop culture and the short but sweet time she enjoyed as Pop’s reigning MC circa 2001.
So now, weeks after confirming the release of new material, That Grape Juice presents…

Wednesday, October 3rd 2012
”Give me an inch I’ll take a yard/ Oh lighten up y’all know I was comin’ back real hard.”
Check out the above pic of Rap icon Lil Kim enjoying the company of record producer Verse Simmonds recently, shared with fans via the social networking site Twitter.
Verse, for those who don’t know, is most renown for the contributions his ‘Juggernauts’ played in producing Rihanna‘s provocative number ‘Man Down’, which featured on her 2010 LP ‘Loud’ and remixed by Kim for her polarizing ‘Black Friday‘ mix tape.
Prompting speculation that the pair are to collaborate, the shot was reportedly snapped in a recording studio weeks after the MC promised the release of new material to fans during New York Fashion Week.
Still haven’t heard Kim’s ‘Man Down’ mix?

She may receive little to no love at any award ceremony nowadays, but that didn’t stop Lil Kim from hitting Life Nightclub in Atlanta, following the ‘BET Hip Hop Awards’ last night.

Indeed, after a number of unfortunate appearances, the Rap Royal took to New York City’s ‘Bounce Sports Club‘ with Jim Jones and Salt & Pepa‘s Pepa to celebrate its first anniversary.
Undeniably upbeat, Jones also enjoyed the event with a number of fans who turned up to support both she and the upmarket venue.

Much to fan delight, ‘Work It’ rapstress Missy Elliott is definitely back hard at work promoting her latest gems ’9th Inning’ and ‘Triple Threat’.
Already guesting BET’s ’106 & Park’, the Virginian femcee made her way over to MTV to visit ‘RapFix’ to share the good news of her return.
As ever, despite being plagued with questions on the Drake/Aaliyah debacle, Elliott was also greeted with her thoughts on the ever-hyped beef between fellow femcees Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Kim. While one who has career-long evaded beef, the ‘Hot Boys’ hitmaker has always been one to speak her mind.
