Is Rap kitten Lil Kim gearing up for fresh legal drama today?
Unfortunately, if one Canadian fan of the ‘Black Friday’ star has their way…yes.
Find out why below…
Two years after the release of her ill fated EP ‘Black Friday’, the Hip Hop lioness announced the arrival of its follow up ‘Hardcore 2K13‘, a release that’d pay homage to her debut album of the same name, but boast brand new material and artwork from the icon.
Unfortunately, in what’s landed her in scolding hot water, the performer has come under scrutiny for allegedly stealing a piece crafted by another artist and using it as the EP’s cover art….without seeking their permission to do so.
Taking to Steve Huffman‘s ‘Reddit‘, user ‘Sssamanthaa’ revealed:
“So, this is a thing that’s been happening. Lil Kim took my photo and is using it as album art (might I add she took the liberty of adding her watermark over it on instagram). I have spoken with a lady on her team as well as her manager, which has done a whole lot of nothing. I’ve reported the photos on Facebook and Instagram multiple times, but they are continually posted. Anyone have any thoughts on what to do here? I live in BC, Canada.”
Indeed, after numerous attempts to have her image removed from the project, the artist has seen her pleas ignored by the Rapper’s camp, prompting the creator to share their story on social media.
A story, that’s angered so many, some have urged them to take legal action against the alleged copy cat.

Here’s hoping the ‘Queen Bee’ finds a way to claw her way out of this one!
