If you know anything about That Grape Juice, you’ll know we love us some Lil Kim.
However, thanks to a number of amateurish business moves, a well publicized jealous streak and the complacency which saw a certain Nicki Minaj take her recipe and make a much better meal out of it, it’s become a little hard to support the ‘Black Friday‘ Rapper.
Now listen to her remix of Rihanna‘s rising smash, ‘Pour It Up‘, at your own risk below…
Here’s what confuses us about Kim.
As the undeniable ‘mother’ of every Femcee to have debuted after her and with a story that’s etched in the foundation of Hip Hop as we know it today, we’re not sure why her lyrics remain so uninspired.
Of course, while a cut like ‘Pour’ doesn’t leave much room for her to tell her life story, recent cuts have seen the Rapper opt for a sound that is well and truly beneath her. A sound, that while may goes some way to appeasing her fans for all of five minutes, do nothing for her legacy.
With her new album on the way, we hope to hear songs akin to ‘Heavenly Father’, ‘I’m Human‘ and the criminally underrated ‘If You Love Me’.
For, whatever you may think of her, Kim remains a Rap legend but now owes it to her fans to create music worthy of that title.
