When asked if she sings now more than she used to:
“Everyone needs to go back and remember my older music. I even used Auto-Tune back when no one even was touching it – I used it on The Notorious K.I.M., on a song called “I’m Human.” I sang on all my albums; this is nothing new to me. It’s just that people haven’t heard from me in a while, so they only remember most of the singles that were put out. People need to remember how different every song I put out [was]. “Kitty Box” sounds like something that would be out now. I was ahead of my time, all the time.”
When asked about the recording process for “Lil Kim Season”:
“We kind of decided at the last minute – we had around two weeks to finish it. When we started a couple songs that we put out, like the “Panda” record, we were like, “Oh, gosh, let’s just finish it.” We kind of had an idea, but we didn’t know when we wanted drop it.”
On whether or not her daughter plays it:
“Some songs she already knew because she hears them on the radio and heard them in the house when we were playing it. If I put on a beat that she likes, we automatically know – she starts bobbing her head.”
