Rap icon Lil Kim brings the heat on her new number ‘No Flex Zone’, a remix of the Rae Sremmurd cut of the same name!
Following remixes of the jam released by Lil Mama and Nicki Minaj, Kim’s take on the bop sees her record her own version of its infectious hook and work its verses with lyrics she no doubt hopes will silence any unimpressed by her more recent offerings.
Unfortunately, despite being one of her better numbers, the song sounds as though it was recorded and mixed on an iPhone.
Check it out below…
For longtime Kim fans, this remix will no doubt be a welcome surprise.
However, for a generation that’s completely unfamiliar with she or her legacy, it serves as another reminder as to why she sits at the bottom of Rap’s pile.
Yes it made for a nice listen, but one has to wonder how an act whose enjoyed the notoriety that Kim has sees nothing wrong with releasing songs that sound so…amateur.
The way we see it, Kim’s problem isn’t the supposed disrespect she’s shown by some of her younger Rap sisters, but rather her inability to deliver a sound worthy of her Rap icon status.
Fortunately, this is nothing a great producer can’t remedy.
So, should the ‘No Time’ songstress be serious about her long-awaited comeback, here’s hoping she invests in a production team with enough coins to invest in the latest version of ‘Reason.’
