Hot Shot: Lil Kim Shoots New Video

Published: Sunday 20th Jan 2013 by Sam

Can you believe it’s been two years since Lil Kim released ‘Black Friday’? And yet 24 months after the mixtape topped the Paypal 100, there’s been no follow-up album nor any news about one.

Still, as keen appreciators of Kim’s legacy, any sighting of the Queen Bee brings a smile to our face. Case, point, this shot of the femcee on the set of Tiffany Foxx‘s video for buzz single ‘Jay Z’ – which also features the pint-sized icon.

As reported last Fall, Foxx has been anointed as Kim’s protegé, something we’re entirely in support of. Not so much because the New Yorker is the second coming. Rather, it’s due to Kim being better suited to a nurturing role at this stage of her career.

Like Ashanti, she’s made no secret of her disdain for the supposedly “insulting deals” labels are putting on the table to veterans such as herself (see: 360). And with each year reducing the chance of a better deal being cooked up, also dissolved are our hopes of  Kim releasing a 00’s album as epic as ‘The Naked Truth’. Or an album of any sort. Such a project requires two components: artistic confidence and a mini-machine to mobilize its cause. Sadly, these are things Kim clearly doesn’t have in her arsenal anymore.

And while that would have made us sad several years ago, it’s a reality we’re surprisingly comfortable with today. Much like a boxer, artists like Kim have their prime and their shine for a period in time. Jury’s out on whether Kim’s run has ended. However, one thing both she and her fans should celebrate is that her legacy is ever-lasting.

Anyway, enough of the rambling…

      OMG!! Have you read blogs and comments on the AI HATE for Nicki! You barbz better stop worrying about Kim and what she doing and try to save your fav. American Idol will be the death of Nicki’s popularity.

      • Cool January 20, 2013

        From what I hear, she’s the only reason why people are still watching that show.

        *Ignores “Beyhive AntiChrist”*

        I haven’t sen you in forever, I got a new haircut and my basketball team continued their losing streak religously. What the phuck is up I haven’t socialized with you in like, a year!

      • ƸӜƷ 3 ƸӜƷ January 20, 2013

        So you cut your hair? Gave up on the twists or dreadlocks, huh? Of course your team every game, you ARE in the team after all 😆 JK. I know I haven’t seen you in a while! I’m fine, how about you?

      • Benron (King of The Phucking Navi) January 20, 2013

        Im great and I only shaved the sides my head, its quite peculiar tbh. How’s your debate team going? Because I hope for your sake they can have the topic one day about Mariah ThatShitCarey vs. Nutty Garbaj than you mgiht have a chance at beating the other teams. Happy early MLK day.

  6. Masterpiece (Beyonce’s Weave) January 20, 2013

    LMAO Nicki is just letting all these basic rap b****** think they still have a chance in the rap game, once she returns, every single basic rap b**** is going to have to take a seat on this has-been bench (and that includes you Kim) —->> /——\

    • Layla January 20, 2013

      Nicki’s album flopped and her next album will sell less. Nicki aint scaring nobody.

      • QUEEN MINAJ January 20, 2013

        lol yet my album sold more than any rap album in 2012

      • PSA (FAF) January 20, 2013

        @layla u dont even believe that, d***

        #6 artist of 2012.. can u count !?

        FLOPS dont get certified platinum, DEEERY!

        Enough w/ your delusons _/ sit !

        This d*** looks good for once !

      • AmbeRussell January 20, 2013

        it did not flop BUT it did under perform. she clearly lost fans, her remix album, which had 8 new songs did not do well either.

      • PSA (FAF) January 21, 2013

        It was not a Remix album @AmbeRussell it was a mixtape but it was more strategic to have it as a re-release bc it would add to sales of PFRR
        it was only released to 2 retailers initially and still broke top 50 on bb200, was #1 on itunes and has sold over 100k

  7. Truth ( Number 1 Nicki Stan) January 20, 2013

    Well it’s nice to her face is still hanging on…

  8. qu3pid January 20, 2013

        MAN F*** U AND FICKI MISHIT

  21. ENOUGH ONIKA (0 GRAMMY NOMS…) January 20, 2013

    As we’ve all learned from years of notorious lies and fallacies from Kim, you have to SEE it to believe it. I’d be shocked if she still even has a fan base checking for new music from her with her continuous lies, constantly cutting off communication with her fans, and allowing a run down past boyfriend to diss her own fan-base. I know as for me, I jumped shipped over a year ago and don’t ever plan on returning….

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 21, 2013

      Me too chile…if this b**** think someone is impressed with what she doin she’s livn in a bubble. Go AND her lies and team can gota hell chile

  24. JB January 20, 2013

    The fact that Kim always stayed 100% Hip Hop and never went bubblegum pop is enough for me to give her daps. Imagine if back in 2001, Kim had done a song with O-Town, or made music that sounded like a Jessica Simpson knock off.

    Kim kept it true and for that she always gets my respect, unlike…

    • PSA (FAF) January 21, 2013

      Maybe thats why she flopped off the face of the earth :(… KI

      “Kitty Box”

      “Lady Marmalade”

      POP songs !

      • the real xoxo January 21, 2013

        Lady Marmalade is more r&b than pop and her verse was just as urban as any other of her verses.
        Not once did i hear a “twinkle twinkle little star”

      • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 21, 2013

        Deeeeeead @psa ‘flop off the face of the earth’

      • SlayDeleAdkins January 21, 2013

        Kitty Box isnt pop!
        It wasnt even a single so why does it matter????

      • SlayDeleAdkins January 21, 2013

        Hell! Even “Lady Marmalade”isnt a pop song! Its R&B!

  25. DeezNuts January 20, 2013

    The Floppery continues! Lucy Lui is still trying to make a comeback I see! Asian b****** need a JOB in 2013 cuz this s*** is sad! Take a SEAT Krim! lmfaooooooooo :,(

    Gahhhh. I…I cant anymore! lmfao in 2013 Krim shade is just….I cant. I cry everytime I shade her! She just so….DONE! The wig…the outfit…the IRS…the flop tour…the flop cocktail recipe’s…Paypal #1 flop record…flop new artist…flop surgeries, flop flop flop flop flop! lmfaoooooooo!!!!! I cant take it!

    • Iconic Iggy January 20, 2013

      Its 2013 and you’re still hating on Kim? Its time to move on Barb

      • DeezNuts January 20, 2013

        Lmao..That sad thing is, youre right. Krim will FOREVER be at the bottom of the totem. Laughing at her floppery is no longer funny. *real tears*

    • SlayDeleAdkins January 21, 2013

      *Sigh* Why cant you just be humble about it and move on?? Jheeze!

  26. Viciousss January 20, 2013

    Good luck to Foxx, I like Kim but…as the article says it’s been 2 years since she put out her own mixtape…not necessarily who you want directing yours.

    Still, if Kim can get and keep her s*** together she probably would be really great as that nurturing rap-figurehead. Business wise…it is what it is. Nicki’s got the endorsement game on lock, don’t try to beat her just do your own thing and make your own fame.

  27. Iconic Iggy January 20, 2013

    Nice to see Kim putting another chick on. And she does look decent here

  28. Lmao! January 20, 2013

    Lil Kim’s career ended when Nicki wiggled her ass while sitting on that motorcycle in the Super Bass Video!

    • PSA (FAF) January 21, 2013

      DEATH! 🙂 🙂

  29. teamkim January 21, 2013

    LIL KIM IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE QUEEN and her career is far from over. She released Black Friday as a mixtape and got massive sales. She started her OWN RECORD LABEL and has since released various artist mixtapes. She is the face of the QUEEN BEE CIROC cocktail, she had a very successful tour in 2012, she was featured in a cameo in french montana/wale everywherewego video. She was on TV numerous times in 2012 on BET’s 106th and park, on Bravo with Andy Cohen, on BET at Rip the Runway, on MTV with Sway Calloway. She released numerous singles, had a Christmas giveaway for her fans, has numerous hairsalons, etc…Currently she just released 2 videos for Tiff Foxx (jelly beans, goaldiggers) and has just filmed another one to be released in which she will be featured in this time. She is working on her album, a book and also will be having a reality show to come in 2013 with TVONE. or yeah and did I mention that she has done this all independently. Kim is not to be wreckoned with and as we all see you all are heavily anticipating her return hence the numerous comments she’s receiving in just hours of this video shoot announcement. #HATERS FALL BACK!

    • nickiminaj January 21, 2013

      Y’all fans need to give up cause u makin her look real bad by sayin dis s*** an dats nothing at all no new music of her own an yall act like pic of her is da new music now its sad cause yall believes in a liar

      • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 21, 2013

        Jump ship sweetie…i did looong ago. But still STILL waaaaaay better than icki!

    • Msteefromdc January 24, 2013

      This is some real shyt right here…i luv it…

      LIL KIM all day everyday!

  30. Yawn January 21, 2013

    The Last official Kim album got 5 Mics from Source Mag, the only Female Rapper to ever get that remember that!

    There is not 1, i repeat not 1, official Lil Kim album that is bad, and thats what people are going to remember and Onika’s albums could NEVER match upt o any of Kims classics! when she comes back properly and officially ya’ll see that

    • SlayDeleAdkins January 21, 2013

      Have to agree!! Kim’s records are CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED! And are known for being classics!! Nicki doesnt have that. What album or song from nicki can u call a classic??

      • Msteefromdc January 24, 2013

        EXACTLY…NONE OF NICKI’S SHYT WILL BE REMEMBERED.. SHE’S GARBAGE

  31. the real xoxo January 21, 2013

    Kim is irrelevant now, but at the end of the day she managed to stay hot for a decade.
    its only 2013 and Nicki already can’t go platinum anymore, i highly doubt she could be relevant in 2020.

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 21, 2013

      #POW

  32. Teamkim January 21, 2013

    Yall kill me using the term irrelevant like do we even know you who itches? Obviously nicki thinks shes relevant since almost every track is a diss and nicki is copying what a so called hasdbeen has already done years ago.

  33. BAD BAD January 21, 2013

    This b**** only coming back because the QUEEN, Nicki Minaj is straight dominating everything more than she has. Nicki Minaj is better than Lil Kim 100x, Lil Kim is finished so is Foxy. All these female rappers now want to come out because Nicki is straight killing everything with hits after Hits. She’s the best female rapper EVER! period.

  34. drayner317 January 21, 2013

    LOVE LIL KIM…..I SUPPORTING TIFFANY JUST BECAUSE KIM!! COME ON LADIES BRING SOME REAL HIP HOP BACK!! FEMALE RAP IS DEAD…BUT COMING BACK!!
