Lil Kim keeps her promises.
After promising to release a new album for the last decade, the Hip-Hop Queen fulfilled her promise with the release of the edgy set ‘Nine’ last week and watched it soar into several markets.
This week, members of her fanbase have joined forces to ensure that the project receives a chart position befitting of Kim’s status as one of the most influential and impactful artists of our time.
Full report below…
The new album lost its footing hours ago and slipped out of iTunes Top 40 after its pure sales took a dip.
Now, her fans are ready to give it the boost they believe it deserved by urging their followers on Twitters to support the set before the Billboard 200 closes it doors this week.

I’m waiting for lil kim album sales to come out so I can laugh my ass off. Law school has been stressful. I need a good laugh to de-stress especially since people were gassing her up as if she didn’t release trash. As if the bitch is a real artist 🙄😂😭😭

Quite interestingly, it appears Kim may have good reason to celebrate at the end of the week even if ‘Nine’ doesn’t deliver blockbuster albums. For, thanks to a positive comeback campaign launched by her new management team, sales of her debut album ‘Hardcore’ have pushed the project to the 3x Platinum mark in the United States twenty three years after its release.
Lil’ Kim’s ‘9’ is currently #16 on iTunes Australia.

‘Hardcore’ sits behind Lauryn Hill‘s ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ and Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday‘ on the list of highest-selling debut efforts launched by a female rapper.
It has moved a reported 5 million units worldwide.
