TGJ Replay: Lil Kim – ‘Hardcore’

Published: Wednesday 20th Mar 2013 by David

Much like our ‘Retro Rewind’ and ‘From the Vault’ segments, readers of That Grape Juice know what avid music lovers we are – especially of hits past.  So in a quest to re-spin the gems and jams of yesterday we introduced a new retrospective segment – ‘TGJ Replay’.

Unlike its ‘Rewind’ and ‘Vault’ predecessors, ‘Replay’ looks to dust off and showcase albums (and eras) from a library of pop music hits.  Today, as fans gear up for the release of her Bangladesh driven new album, TGJ shines a new light on Lil Kim‘s debut album ‘Hardcore‘.

Under the pupilage of mentor Biggie Smalls, 1996 saw Miss Kimberly Denise Jones release her debut album ‘Hardcore’ under the stage name Lil Kim-one year after scoring the Top 20 smash ‘Player’s Anthem’ alongside Rap collective Junior M.A.F.I.A.

Sexually charged and packing a lyrical billed as ‘hilarious filth’ by Rolling Stones Magazine, the project secured the Rapper the highest first week sales to be generated by a Female MC at the time, hitting the Billboard 200 at #11 with sales of 78,000.

Serving a sweet mix of femininity, agression and a glamour, the LP’s scorching cuts and well executed video catapulted the the pint sized MC to a notoriety never afforded to her long time rival Foxy Brown, securing her 3 Rap #1 singles from the album.

Three #1s, which also nabbed her three Top Twenty spots on the Billboard Hot 100 within the space of one a year. An achievement that oft goes forgotten when listing her achievements, the album’s glory went on to enjoyed just as much glory on the charts as did outside of it- when ‘Crush On You’ was nabbed a ‘Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group’ at the 40th annual Grammy Awards.

What truly made ‘Hardcore’ the classic it is though, was the lyrical structure, production and label push that saw the Rapper enjoy Top Ten hits with Hip Hop singles.

Of course, while the genre was very much in fashion at the time thanks to heights attained by Jay Z’s ‘Reasonable Doubt’ and Biggie Smalls’Ready To Die’, it was Kim’s conviction as a lyricist and broad appeal as an entertainer which saw her stand side by side as one of the many forces to lead Hip Hop even further into ‘mainstream culture’.

All this, while facing a number of personal battles- one of which included Smalls’ marriage to Bad Boy’s Faith Evans and claims that the lyrics she had claimed to have penned on the album were in fact written by Smalls, with whom she was involved with during its conception.


Irrelevant considering it was Kim’s delivery that turned her cuts into classics, the album’s critical approval serves as the perfect ‘F U’ to many who question her status as Rap’s leading trendsetter when its modest sales are thrown into the mix. Indeed, despite it’s impressive peak upon debuting, the last 17 years has seen it struggle to surpass the 2 million mark in the United States, despite being certified Double Platinum by the RIAA for shipping that many copies.

Fact of the matter is, whatever one thinks of her career today, there’s no denying the only word that the ‘Hardcore‘ era will forever be on the strongest ‘moments’ in Pop culture history.

Indeed, while recent years have seen her struggle to live up to her former glory, the light she brought to Hip Hop back then still burns bright today in stylistic choices made by her very own Eve Harrington… Nicki Minaj.

Sure, while Minaj’s calculated and cut throat approach saw her achieve more commercially in seven years than Kim did in seventeen, she no doubt cherry picked the strongest fruits of Kim’s cause to further her own, and in doing so proved how influential Brand Kim is..even to this day.

So, with a new album set for release in the coming year here’s hoping Miss Jones pulls from ‘Harcore‘s greatness to forge a project just as groundbreaking. For, while her chances of ‘beating’ Minaj at her own game are slim to none, nothing will ever take away from her legacy and how it shaped Rap culture as we know it today.

    Finally an article on some proper hip-hop.
    This album is the s***. “Mafia land” is arguably her best song.
    You ruined it by mentioning that mediocre sell-out at the end though.

    • Huh??? March 20, 2013

      this is so disrespectful to the former Queen of Hiphop for Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliott….she is always being overshadowed by Lil Kim for reasons I do not know….Nicki sounds nothing like Kim or any rapper for that matter…but if i had to pick who she reminds me of the most it would be Missy because they are both so out there…most of the female rappers are pretty much the same…but Nicki & Missy are unique

      on another note: Biggie really gave Kim good verses/flow for Queen B****…i think thats her best song

      • the real xoxo March 20, 2013

        Image-wise Nicki is VERY similar to lil kim.
        i agree she is like missy elliott aswell.

      • Trev March 20, 2013

        so colorful Wigs? Colorful wigs that Nicki doesn’t even wear anymore? and Colorful wigs Kim only wore for a short period as well?

        if all Kim has to go on is wigs then it shows how diff they really are…and tbh the first time i saw Nicki do the jet black hair with the pink tracks and eventually colorful wigs i immediately though Cyndi Lauper & P!nk NOT Kim…and Nicki’s wigs are on a diff level…Kim’s wigs look like cheap wigs you buy for a Halloween costume

        I mean how can you even talk when it’s a fact that Biggie and Maino written for you…and now i’m sure her bf is writing for her too…you can’t be Queen and don’t write

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 20, 2013

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b**** March 20, 2013

      she lasted for 20yrs…icki lasted for 5…B****!!!

    • The Truth March 20, 2013

      Kim is and was very much relevant. You kids have no idea. That’s a 20 year career , not a 5 year breakthrough with no real achievements other than setting black people back an entire century.

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 20, 2013

        #POW!

    • msteefromdc March 20, 2013

      KIM HAS ALWAYS BEEN RELEVANT… IN 1995 WHEN SHE FIRST CAME ON THE SCENE AND SHE IS STILL RELEVANT..LOOK HOW MANY FOLK COME ON HER POST EVERY SINGLE DAY. IF SHE’S NOT RELEVANT WHY COMMENT?

  9. truth tea (take a sip) March 20, 2013

    Biggie, Lil Kim and Jay-z all had classic debut albums/eras – the albums were all straight hip-hop with a couple of radio-friendly but credible joints.

  10. ENOUGH ONIKA (KMART QUEEN) March 20, 2013

    I need someone to explain this. Not only is this interview just awkward in general but that face… Now she “claims” blogs have been photoshopping her pics but Kim…..this is video footage on a GOSPEL television show, there’s no excuse for this…
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucR3U7GY9DA

    • QueenBarb March 20, 2013

      ewwww her face…..omg she doesn’t even look recognizable

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 20, 2013

        Now b**** go look at that S*** u stan for in 05, 06…check it b**** and suck my d***!

  11. the real xoxo March 20, 2013

    All 4 of Kim’s albums are good, her discography is solid. Not a mediocre album in sight.

    • Tuhh March 20, 2013

      THIS!!!! Ms. G.O.A.T. was solid too! That mixtape was like an album. I’m not sure if Vintage is an official mixtape by her but it has some good songs on there. DatPiff has them both. Man I wish Kim would stop this nonsense and deliver a solid album once again. It doesn’t seem like she’s going to if we consider what she’s been putting out lately 🙁

      • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 20, 2013

        Keys to the City was the HUMP honey! I still pump it!

  12. BarbzRUS March 20, 2013

    Why do Kim stans think anyone hates her. Everyone loved her until she f***** up.

    • truth(icki is a KMART, NO GRAMMY NOD, PFRR FLOP, SQUID EYED b****) March 20, 2013

      Everyone liked icki til SHE fuckd up so y does icki stans think everyone just hates her for nothing?¿

    • alex March 20, 2013

      IM NOT SAYING S*** UNTIL I HEAR
      THE PINKPRINT .

      everything she did in her career was a marketing strategy

      hip hop fans (pink friday) + Pop fans (roman reloaded)= Pinkprint has more listeners and she has a chance to set the record straight on her decisions .

  13. JARED (WHITE DUDE) March 20, 2013

    Lil’ Kim = LEGEND!!!

    It’s just a shame that she is so insecure about her legacy that she, inadvertently, feels the need to ‘attack’ every psuedo-“new” female rapper that emerges, to which the media then blows it way out of proportion and, little-by-little, executes her reputation.

    SMH!!!

    Both her & Nicki need to grow the f*** up tbh and stick to cementing their success whilst opening doors for others to follow.

    • truth tea (take a sip) March 20, 2013

      Nicki has been dissing kim since 2003. but when kim responds she is the “bitter” one?

      • SheBadBad March 20, 2013

        How do you explain her beef with Foxy, Remy and Eve though.

      • truth tea (take a sip) March 20, 2013

        @SHE BAD BAD
        Foxy came at her first on a 98 track “bang bang”, that was more personal beef that we know nothing about.
        Remy Ma dissed kim first on “when i see her”, kim responded.
        Kim and Eve never had beef, Eve threw a shot first on “let me blow ya mind” and Kim threw a couple shots back at Eve on “came back for you”. They are cool with eachother now.

      • Tuhh March 20, 2013

        @Truth Tea (Take A Sip)

        THANK YOU!!!!!! Kim doesn’t just start beef she only responds to it. I can’t front though Foxy’s Bang Bang went in! That beef kept Kim on her toes.

    Biggie did a great job writing that album and teaching kim how to spit. She learned really well… R.I.P King

    • shell March 20, 2013

      Vibe did an article in 2010 on Lil Kim first beginnings and cited numerous sources stating that lil kim wrote 70 percent of the songs on “Hardcore” next …

  17. WomanToWoman March 20, 2013

    Nice article TGJ but this wasn’t Kims album, it was Biggies seeing as he wrote all the lyrics.

    • truth tea (take a sip) March 20, 2013

      Biggie wrote it WITH kim, not all the lyrics. if that were so, kim would have fell off after this era.
      The original version of “big momma thang” is a 2pac and faith evans diss, its on youtube. do you really think biggie would have wrote that?

      • hj March 20, 2013

        No, Biggie wrote ALL of it. Keep it 100%. And she did fall of after that era. She never topped hardcore, critically or commercially.

      • Iconic Iggy March 20, 2013

        Naked Truth is Kim’s most critically acclaimed album actually. And unless there is proof that Biggie wrote her lyrics, it is nothing more than a conspiracy theory.

      • Navy Sailor!!! March 20, 2013

      but Foxy herself admitted she never wrote most of her rhymes.

    • hj March 20, 2013

      True, but she was a great performer. Biggie saw the potential, so he wrote her rhymes and taught her how to deliver, and that she did….
      Foxy is a true MC though..

    • Mickie March 20, 2013

  21. BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare March 20, 2013

    You can say whatever you want to say about Kim, “Hardcore” is a certified CLASSIC. Period. In some quarters, “Naked Truth” is also considered a classic.

    As a Nicki fan as well, I’m still waiting on her classic. Hopefully one day I’ll get it. Keep the awards, the magazine covers, American Idol, perfumes, clothing lines,etc….hooray, that’s awesome. I want a CLASSIC album.

    like i stated earlier on this thread Vibe did an article in 2010 on Lil Kim first beginnings and cited numerous sources stating that lil kim wrote 70 percent of the songs on “Hardcore” time to get over it people

    • Navy Sailor!!! March 20, 2013

      Bye B****! Lil Kim is ugly and irrelevant get over it

      • shell March 20, 2013

        if lil kim so irrevelant then why are you even on an article relating to her how ass backwards is that

    • Navy Sailor!!! March 20, 2013

      Because ugly! It’s a blog and I respond to whatever the hell I want! Where’s her single? Where’s her album? Where’s her face? Where’s her tour? Where are her endorsements? Nowhere like her f****** career. She is almost 40, broke and ugly. Her stans need to stop being delusional and admit it! Btw it’s sad that no one is talking about her other than the blogs and 9.5/10 it’s because of her chopped up face hahahahaha what a failure!!!!

      • shell March 20, 2013

        Seriously have of the stuff you just asked kim has been there done that from endorsements plat albums tours and even having her own class Lil’ Kim and Hip Hop: Queen B**** 101 taught at Syracuse Univeristy! Lil Kim is solidified in the rap hip hop culture she doesnt need to prove nothing to ignorant people like you grow the hell up

    • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare March 20, 2013

      Exactly. This rumor was dispelled years ago. Plus, Kim does some of her best storytelling on songs like “Revolution,” AFTER Big’s passing.

      Am I the ONLY sane Nicki fan on here?

  24. shell March 20, 2013

    lil kim had 3 successful albums after Biggies death i guess to the idiots biggie arose from the grave and wrote those songs too! smdh idiots

    It’s too bad females in rap don’t come out with classic first albums like this anymore. Kim’s first album is classic and will forever be cemented in MUSIC HISTORY as one of the most iconic rap albums in hip hop and not mention- liberating as qF***!!!! This is why I cannot compare nicki and Kim. Nicki may be more popular now and be commercially successful but, as of now, nobody will be coming back in 17 years to rehash “PF” “PF:RR” or the ReFlop.. No comparison, there is none #Sorry . Kim, along with Missy, are the most original and ground breaking females to EVER hit the rap scene, they not only stepped it up musically but visually did s*** chicks in the rap game had t even thunk of before. As u can see from all the imitators now. Kudos Kim!

    Finally tgj giving credit where credit is due.I don’t know
    Why they had to throw that shade in at the end.But
    Whatever. And can people stop acting like nicki minaj was
    The first to do every f****** thing. mostly everything she
    Is doing has been done. People nowadays only see the current
    And Stan for people and don’t know the history of s***.
    Anyways Kim is a legend and will never be forgotten.

    Tbh Kim’s new face has destroyed her career, Kim is not the star she once was, She and her fans need to be real with themselves. She doesn’t stand a chance in hell in today’s industry and she knows that, not with that face. She needs to invest what little money she has left into a clothing line or perfume line and save her self further embarrassment.
