Hot Shot: Lil Kim Teases Fans With 2012 Promo Shot

Published: Monday 26th Dec 2011 by David


With 2012 opening its doors to the world in now just a few days time, fans of Hip Hop veteran Lil Kim are now just one step closer to discovering just what the performer has in store in support of her long awaited ‘come back’.

So, as her way of saying thank you for the continued support, she released a brand spanking new promotional image for the upcoming project via Twitter on Christmas Day.

More below…

While recent career moves have made both Ms. Jones and her team very easy to mock, heckle and laugh at,  we’d be lying if we said we weren’t interested to see how she will fare once this album finally hits stores.

Because, while her fans may support her with their mouths they are yet to prove that they are dedicated enough to support with her money, which may prove catastrophic for Team Kim if the LP rakes in sales even the likes of Jason Derulo would look down his nose at.

We wish Kim the best, but we just hope she realizes what releasing an album in the same year as Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded‘ will look like when the sales of both projects are inevitably going to be compared and used to further discredit her status as the Queen of  Rap.

Side Note:

Kudos to Kim for her wins at this year’s That Grape Juice Awards.

    @TRUTHTELLER,,,,Happy Holidays and thanks for the Charts Listing

  7. Lax December 26, 2011

    I Can see that its going to be a Fight to the Finish Line
    with Nicki & Kim This should make for some Knock Out
    Drag Out Fights ESPECIALLY With the Head S*** Strirrer
    “XYZ” Pulling hard for Nicki to Up Root Rihanna,,,LMAO
    Now you know its going to be All the way on Lock!

  8. Lax December 26, 2011

    @Navy,,,,Chase & Statue or Great Friends of Rihanna’s.

  9. BRANDONCE December 26, 2011

    first of all. TGJ already posted the UK Year End charts, search for it.
    And second of all I agree with this post.

    Why do Kim fans think Nicki would earn less than her just because Kim is an ‘independent’ artist.
    Kim has NEVER been a high seller OR a top earner, we know this because most of her music is owned by the Wallace estate AND Atlantic.
    Second of all, Nicki’s songs will always get more radio play than a Kim song because Nicki’s song are MADE for the radio so she’ll always see more publishing than Kim will.

    AND, Nicki owns the rights to all of her merchandise meaning she will always make money.

    I like Kim, but don’t be foolish and think she earns more money just because she ‘cuts her own cheque’. Because, i’d rather earn more being somebody’s employee than earn less being my own boss.

    If you guys dont go out and support this project, you’ll just give the haters more fuel to say she’s a has been and a flop.

    so please GO OUT AND BUY THE EP!

  10. Lax December 26, 2011

    “Talk That Talk” Gold
    @TRUTHTELLER,,,,Do you know the Count for “You Da One’

  11. TruthTeller December 26, 2011


    Happy holidays sweetie

  12. TruthTeller December 26, 2011

    I think Lil Kim is a bigger legend (actually the only one of the 2… so far); but Nikki is much more talented.
    I mean when u listen to her verses and the way she just shitted on legends likeJayZ & Kanye in Monster or T.I & Rick on “Hello Good Morning”… THIS B**** IS SOMETHING ELSE.

    I would die to here her on a track with Busta. The 2 craziest mothafuckas with the wildest flow together on a track together… INSTANT CLASSIC

  13. TruthTeller December 26, 2011


    In the US, YDO has sold around 350K as of last week.
    It should be gold by next week.

    In the UK, it looks like YDO will hit the top10 this week

  14. Team Lil kim December 26, 2011

    @brandonce wtf are u talking about? First, lil kim own the rights to all of her publishing! The only reason why she was pulled from the monica song was because ms wallace owns biggie’s publishing not lil kim’s! I don’t where u been it’s public information that once kim left Atlantic records she fought for her publishing and won! Second lil kim is with a new label fool! Therefore her music will get even more radio play because she now has a machine behind her! The funny thing is that lil kim is under umg the same label as nicki! We just don’t know what umbrella under umg is lil kim signed with until the beginning of January when she makes the big announcement! Last grapejuice please u are praying for kim’s downfall and that’s sad! I love how lil kim doesn’t listen or let people like you stop her because if she did she wouldn’t be in the rap game in the first place! The two songs that nicki has put out are getting bad reviews from all the critics and bloggers who aren’t kissing her behind! Nicki is also slowly ruining her own career by disrespecting cher and jennifer aniston . U failed to post about nicki disrespecting jennifier by mentioning her painful relationship ending with brad. Roman reloaded will be all about kim and everyone are tired of the back and forth between nicki and kim!

  15. Lax December 26, 2011

    @BRANDONCE,,,,While TRUTHTELLER Know that the UK has been
    Posted We want the last week which is just being counted Posted.
    For the Pass Week. And while you have got a valid Point for saying
    what applies to Kim and Nicki REMEMBER that the same APPLIES
    made your point noiw let TRUTHTELLER MAKR THEIRS Without you

  17. YOOSONDALOOSE December 26, 2011

    Looks okay, lets see.

  18. QueenOfthenavy December 26, 2011

    its so funny how kim fans try and paint kim as the victim when she is the one who started this publicly.
    I believe nicki is a snake and will do anything to get on top but i also believe kim was stupid to come for her when nicki was getting so big.

    How do you explain kims decision to team up with that hood rapper Keys who got ‘famous’ by dissing Nicki. Kim and that girl had no dealings whatsoever but she embraced JUST because she dissed nicki.

    how do you explain the entire black friday video- or the countless interviews.

    how do you explain her beef with Remy MA,Ms Wallace etc.

    i like kim- she seems like a nice person but she is a stupid h**. She was stupid to think GUNIT, Roc Nation or Young Money would ever sign her, she was stupid to lie in court for those dudes who tried to kill someone and go to jail for it, she was stupid to expose her dealings with Baby and Slim because now we all know how desperate she was to get signed and she was stupid to think Nicki ever liked or respected her.

    Nicki- like most ambitious people are snakey and shady when it comes to people they see as threats. Nicki aimed to throw kim out of the game but didn’t have to, cos kim had already done that to herself.

  19. Lawayne December 26, 2011

    Love it

  20. truthis December 26, 2011

    loking good kim and in rooting for you…nicki becoming a nuisance and arrogant!

  21. Lisa December 26, 2011

    Sam throws so much shade at Lil Kim,but follows her twitter.Sam is a undercover Kim fan and Rihanna fan to..

  22. Maylashia December 26, 2011

    @QueenOfTheNavy and @Truthteller why are y’all Rihanna fans throwing shade at Kim when Kim already stated how much she loves Rihanna.

  23. Melania December 26, 2011

    Lil Kim looking Good.Kim is about to own 2012.

  24. jennifer December 26, 2011

    Nicki Minaj is already starting to fall off.Her last 2 singles were horrible and her fans are starting to get tired of her.

  25. KELIS December 26, 2011


  26. gogetter December 26, 2011

    I CANT WAIT FOR THE EP TO DROP!!! I dont give a F*** what numbers say, Kim is the Queen…PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. jesus christ December 26, 2011

    NICKI MINAJ is excited that her favorite rapper is about to re-emerge. Now she’ll be able to copy more fashion from kim since her clown image is takin a TOLL on her career. Plus she’ll be able to tone down that buffonery of a rap style she been using to get attention. And she’ll be able to tell her STANS “hey everybody, this is the queen i feel in love with and want to be”. At least nicki knew who to swagger jack in to order to have a rap career, right. HEY KIMBERLY, WE SEE YOU AND YOU LOOK GOOD, THAT GRAPE JUICE IS WATCHING AND WAITING FOR THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT.

  28. Diane December 26, 2011

    I will tell you now that Nicki will fare better in record sales because Kim’s fanbase took a hit after telling the World the truth. But, Kim will get her RESPECT back from this new project. She looks good too.

  29. Diane December 26, 2011

    BTW, Kim’s fans do BUY her music but her core fans can’t do it alone. No worries. That will all change once Kim comes back for good. It may take the second comeback album but I am confident that her fanbase will grow beyond the core group.

  30. Steve December 26, 2011

    You guys can’t even congratulate your face without mentionin Nicki ? F*** ! Hop off Nickis nuts on top of that, in that picture she’s wearing the same shoes Nicki wore in Glamour UK Magazine AND she’s posing like Nicki did in one of her KING Magazine photos, Smh and she calls Nicki the copy cat.

  31. ROBOT December 26, 2011

    no more cartoon s*** WE WAN’T THE QUEEN KIM #LEGGGGO

  32. QueenOfthenavy December 26, 2011

    just because kim likes rihanna doesn’t mean the navy will automatically like kim.
    I know a bum when i see one and kim most certainly is a tired queen.

    Yes, she is a Rapicon but yes she did f*** her way to the top, yes her debut album has only shipped 2 million copies since 1996 and yes she hasspent the last few years going from crew to crew begging them for a recording contract.

  36. meme December 26, 2011

    This album better be fiyah! I need someone to put Nicky in her place.

  37. Tren December 26, 2011

    This post is everything wrong with Music. Sales are not the deciding factor for someone status in music. Their music is. The fact that Kim has been in the music industry since 92 & still gathers your speaks volumes more than any payola or bluffed album sales. Nicki and Kim are in 2 different lanes. Kim created the lane and then moved onto another. Nicki is in Kims old lane and trying to cement her own. Nicki is marketing herself towards 10 year old girls. Kim is marketing herself towards Hip Hop. If Kim sold 1 l album it would not take away that She is the Queen of Hip Hop & Nicki Eve Trina are all products of her labor. Just as Kim is the product of Lyte Latifa etc

  38. beyonce fan December 26, 2011

    you look good kim that´s the truth as for you nicki fans posting s*** about kim is not going to change the fact that nicki is done !!!!!!!!!!!!! nicki´s new singles are a laughing stock just wait untill kim tells the world about her new lable s*** is about to go down

  39. KASEY JR. December 26, 2011

  45. BLAH December 26, 2011


  46. yeah ok December 26, 2011

    Yeah grape juice get your head out of Nickiminaj’s ass for a minute and how much are they paying you to throw shade at Lilkim those two wack ass releases that nickimianj just released prove that she can’t do anything without stealing from kim or mentioning kim obssesed much?

  47. Those That Cannot Do, Stan December 26, 2011

    That pic is photoshopped to hell but Kim looks cute, good luck to her.

  48. KD December 26, 2011

    TGJ – Make sure y’all give credit to Michael Antonio, the photographer who took this pic!

  49. The Real B(randy December 26, 2011

    What you at TGJ havent a clue clearly is the fact that Kim is a hustler! She’s a from BK, as I and she is hustling her way back to the top. She’s making her own doe on her own merit. She’s been gone for a minute so there’s this new wack scrub whose had it easy since she’s been gone and all acting like you forgot. Air brush this and airbrush that…..SO THE F*** WHAT? It’s an image and the end product is what is important. She makes statements just NOT in court.

    You guys should really grow up and do more non partisan reporting. You are missing opportunities with the SHADE you so unwittingly throw. It’s sad.

  50. VFB December 26, 2011


  51. pop royalty ( BIRTHDAY CAKE ) December 26, 2011

    the pic is cool ! but remind me of french poodles !

    and i won’t go and talk about the air-brush mania she’s known for !

    but who give a flying s*** about pics , i know she will deliver anyway , as always !

    hope her fans are loyal to her and support her financially !!

    females who are rapping are no longer that welcomed in the industry ! that’s why your nicky went pop ” and even dance with david guetta in TURN ME ON” !!
    she knew rapping is not “IT” for her !

    so kudos to LK for staying true to herself !

    NM is hot now ! but can she achieve what LK once did ?!

    only time will prove who’s the better artist ! but to me , LK is the better rapper ! NM is the better artist who managed to appeal to a lot of markets !!

    but her 2 new singles ” roman” and ” stupid h**” are not doing it so far ! flopped to be specific , so …..

    we will see @sam 😈

  52. Yellow Gorillah December 26, 2011


    How can she be given me life like this

    The Queen is coming I can’t wait

    Stans focus to much on SALES Rather then content and quality do the barbies think that Pink Friday will be a CLASSIC Album LOOOL! The fact that the biggest hit on Pink Friday was a POP Song just speaks volume.

    Nicki and kim are on different lanes and have Different audiences. Nicki want’s to be a POP Star. Lil kim is a RAP LEGEND!! Nicki want’s to be like Gaga, Rihanna, Beyonce she ain’t built for this rap s***.. But nobody is going to stop a sisters hustle let nicki do her thang. but she will NEVER be the Queen of Hip Hop no matter what Billboards say’s the Hip Hop community gives an artist that STATUS Nicki main audience a re Black Gay men and 10 year old girls so please let’s not.

    2012 will mark kim’s return even if the album flops she will gain fans and her next album will be bigger. we all know who the hood is backing

  53. Army of queen Aaliyah & Lil kim December 26, 2011

    This Is SURPRISING Rihanna Stans Hating On Kim ! Anyways How Is Kim A “H**” Just Because She Had A Relationship With Biggie Or Cause She Rapped About S** (Which Nicki Does As Well So Stop It! )

    Kim Better Bring It & Slay Lyrically! I Don’t. Care If It Flops In The Terms Of Sales (Like Queen Bey And “4”) But A Actually Good Album Hopefully She Will Sell Just As Good Or Better Than FLOP FRIDAY : GAY ALTER EGO GIMMICK RELOADED !

  54. Deveal2014 December 26, 2011

    Lil Kim is s*** as f*** !!!!!! This one pic alone gets me hype an thats why I like Lil Kim.Don’t get me wrong Nicki is a pretty female but Lil kim is s*** and all of her pics are like some s** symbol stuff and Minaj don’t give me that. This is a barbie ya know. As far as talent both of em git it . But Kim is the queen of rap

  55. David December 26, 2011

  73. Salerno January 17, 2012

    You Nicki fans are really talking s*** about her looks and photo… Please tell me this is a joke? Nicki minaj looks like s*** at all her appearances and concerts she dresses like a fool to get attention. She wants to be too many people that’s why she has about 7 alter egos she wouldn’t know who she was if she tried she steals everyone’s s***. And for the record nicki was the first one to make shots back in 07 when she wasn’t even big… Obviously she’ll make more she came under lil Wayne she didn’t strive to the top Kim earned it that’s why you’re all hating band wagoners
