Lil Kim Confirms New Bangladesh Produced Single

Published: Monday 29th Apr 2013 by Sam

She’s back! Well… almost.

Recent years have seen Lil Kim become a punchline of sorts. Between ‘Black Friday’, beefs, and  an ever-evolving look, the pint-sized femcee -for many-seems like a shell-of-a-shell-of-a-shell of the formidable force she was in the 90’s.

However, that may be set to change. For the rapstress has announced a new single.

Details after the jump…

Speaking XXL backstage at her recent Gramercy Theater show, the 38-year-old revealed that while hitmaker Bangladesh may not be executive producing her album, he is at the helm of its first single.

On her official single:

“I’ve had so many singles that we just put out to feed the streets, but the first official single will be out in May, June or July. [It’s] produced by Bangladesh. It’s different.”

On the rumored title of her album, Hard Core 2All Hail The Queen:

“No, [Hard Core 2: All Hail The Queen] was just something that my fans tried to push on us.  They had their own mind made up of things they want me to do. Songs they want me to make. Vintage was a title I heard. I was like, ‘Cute.’ I like vintage clothes, and everyone knows that, so people were like, ‘Oh, Kim, because your favorite kind of clothes are vintage, why don’t you name the album Vintage?’ I’m like, ‘It’s cute, but no.’ [Laughs]”

On returning to music:

“It feels good. [There’s] nothing like a great comeback. I love being the underdog sometimes. Right now, I may be considered an underdog in some specific iconic way. You know what I mean? Sometimes, we have to go into hibernation and regroup. I’m blessed enough to been in the game for a while and still have my beautiful fans and still have the respect. That’s something that gets me going. I’m also fortunate enough to take vacation and take a little hiatus. Relax, and see what the next level I want to go to.”

*******************

It’s (almost too) easy to nitpick Kim at this point  – a lot of that fact being her own fault. However, that aside, we’ve long felt that she does have at least one more solid run left in her (be it a single…an album…something). All she needs is to ensure is that all her cards are lined up in the right order.

Jury’s out on whether she’ll be able to do this. What is a certainty, though, is that there is still mileage in “new Kim”. She just needs to drive in the right direction both creatively and with her business decisions (see: label, marketing, press).

Because, in the event she does, she could stumble upon hits such as this…

    Lil Kim ended the following people’s career Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Adele, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, Future, Ciara, Asap Rocky, Drake, Chris Brown, Madonna, Britney Spears, Chris Brown and all other flops. The power of Lil Kim. Your fav wish she was successful as Kimmy.

    I like Kim, but how many times have we read THAT headline in the last three years?? She ALWAYS drop something or do a tour when she need many from her fans. Look, until Kim’s new album is actually on the shelf at target, I don’t believe in any “comeback.” #SorryTruth

  16. DOSSOME April 29, 2013

    That day you’ll “actually” release your album,then i assure you i’ll buy it…i always have fun memories growing up listening to this woman.I was 17 when she dropped her last album in 2005 & since then,i haven’t bought any other female rapper’s album.

    *plays lighters up*

    • Beyonce’sWigBrusher April 30, 2013

      Yes! I remembers being 16 on the bus on my way to school listening to Hardcore!

    • stephanie May 1, 2013

      Me too! I will be buying! I grew up listening to her, she has my support.

  17. nAVY nICK April 29, 2013

    I support all true real artists & KIM has put out incredible work (PAST), but really: MAY JUNE OR JULY? WHAT IS THAT?! hahaha, I AM DONE boo, she id DONE! sorry folk

  18. noflyzone April 29, 2013

    Love Kim it will be worth the wait #G.O.A.T.

  19. L21480 April 29, 2013

    Kim made a fool of herself with that “May, June or July” comment. She should have just said “soon”, which would have had everyone saying ‘yeah right,’ but “May, June or July” made her look downright laughable.

  20. DeezNuts April 29, 2013

    *crawls to this post in tearsssssss!!!* LMFAO

    Wait..Wait! May, June, or ju-LIE!?!?!? BWAHAHA!

    Omg..Barbs Krim is copying Nicki! Bangladesh produced Did it on Em for Nicki in 2010 and NOW Krim is using him. Such a fraud. Copycat clown. Pay homage Krim-ba-lee Nicki was the first one to use Bangladesh! (sound familiar Pay Pals?) _/ _/ _/

    Dragging Krim at this point is just…<<<<<<< Its like kicking a Shaolin Monk while he's down.
    LMFAO lMFAO LMFAO 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (SUPERIOR DIVA) April 29, 2013

    At this point I dont want no announcement, no confirmation, no tease. I want THE SINGLE already. And if it’s about Kimmy Blanco, she can leave it home. I want LIL KIM back , the original Queen B****.

  23. Sleazy April 30, 2013

  24. Likica April 30, 2013

    Lil Kim is the biggest/best female rapper of all time. Dicki can’t hande a candle to her with her sissy and trashy bubblegum songs! Really queen!

  25. mildred April 30, 2013

    Lil kim career is a BIG JOKE.lol

  26. Tisha April 30, 2013

    May, June, or July…

    Of what year Kim?

    Winks, just keeping it 100.

  27. Nikki Gloom April 30, 2013

    While Lil Kim’s career was a shining success in the 90’s into 2000, there are a lot of good talent and bad talent she will now have to weed through. She has some very hardcore fans and also she was named in connection with Biggie. Another well respected artist of his time and generation. Nikki Minaj, and Lore’l, Queen Latifah, and a few male rap artists.. and a few other artists have staked out their niches and also new new. It’s safe to say if Lil Kim she wants to have her time again she will have to claim her spot with a good album and definition. She will always get that respect but to make it big again she has to come full circle this time.

  28. truth(icki released 1,726 singles and 80 videos for reFLOP and still caint go platinum! Yea b****** i said it NNN WIT!! pops tongue) April 30, 2013

    Nicki come get this flop!

  29. Deon April 30, 2013

    All hail the Queen.. I’m ready.. Buying 10 copies of the single the first week and 10 the next just for Kim to be # 1.. Team Kim for life

  30. Beyonce’sWigBrusher April 30, 2013

    Honestly I cant wait till Kim puts out an album, only other female rapper that gets me right toghether is Trina…. Kim just has a way of making a w**** lifestyle drapped in Chanel sound so GLAMOROUS and I LIVE!
