Lil Kim Fans Unite To Bag Blockbuster Numbers For New Album

Published: Tuesday 15th Oct 2019 by David

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.

 

What they’re up against?

Messages like these….

 

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.

 

‘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.

    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 debuted at number 144 on itunes
    I have to laugh.

    She thought attacking nicki and supporting cardi will boost her album sales. Lol

    that album cover is so scary atrocious. So much going on.
    Her face is an eyesore.

    • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 October 15, 2019

      Shut it TRANNY Clarkson. Kim is always a target. If this was Ciara TGJ would say nothing about her bad sales.

      • YAS BIH October 15, 2019

        Um Ciara is ALWAYS a target too and her name shouldn’t be a standard for bad sales either she get decent streams and sales being as tho she’s underrated and an inde artist she’s still able to get platinum plats and is currently listed by the Riaa as Best-Selling Artists of All-Time (Digital Singles) #25 Best-Selling Solo Female Artist. Ashanti, Kelly Rowland, Mya, Nivea, Amerie, Teyana taylor, Fantasia, Keri Hilson, K michelle aren’t the best at selling albums nor singles but somehow Ciara is the chosen one in debates and shaded for low sales why her so much and not others who’s doing a lot worse?

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 October 15, 2019

        Ciara fans like u are straight up liars. I checked RIAA’s website and u you are clearly lying on Ciara! Ciara’s total career sales are 23 million and Lil’ Kim’s total career sales are 30 million so of course they can be compared together because of the similarity in sales.

      • YAS BIH October 15, 2019

        You love to say it’s a lie when it comes to Ciara I made extra sure i checked before I wrote that. Im no where near as delusional as ppl on this site and as far as her only selling 23m that’s been like that for years and haven’t been updated like she just got the rest of her singles updated weeks ago believe it or not she’s top 100 artist and the top 25th Female artist on that list might wanna take your time and search well bc it’s there forsure im looking at it right now.

      • Jasmine October 15, 2019

        You are incorrect. You are clearly skipping over other women on the list to make a false claim Ciara is at 25. Here is the FULL list:

      • YAS BIH October 15, 2019

        I stand corrected bc I see the same names of some female artist that’s repeated more than once

      • Gworl Bye October 16, 2019

        LMFAO at this fake ass list with some people named twice. Some of yall got way too much time on your hands.

      • YAS BIH October 16, 2019

        What’s fake about it? You have eyes to read the list with certain artists named twice just like I and others can see it but stay pressed at facts tho no need for it to be fake when its certified on the Riaa website.

    • Lanafan1 October 15, 2019

      Nicki drew first blood. And only after women in the game started banding together, did she repent. She was genuinely interested in supporting Cardi, because Cardi isn’t a swagga jacking b**** that disrespects her predecessors.

      • Gworl Bye October 16, 2019

        Lies. Kim came out of her knifed up scary face first way back when Nicki first blew up, she was sore because she thought Nicki wasnt paying “homage” to her fake ass. Dont try to rewrite history just because this washed up clown flopped hard even after thinking that jumping on the Nicki hate train and swinging from cardi’s balls would guarantee her relevancy. Try again sis.

  2. Swirly October 15, 2019

    The headline is misleading.

  3. Haterz Gon‘ Hate October 15, 2019

    Uuurrrrgh the CLICK BAIT in the post title tho 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️ Why don’t you focus on writing strong posts instead of tricking people into thinking you have something interesting to say? No mam, you do not get a pass for that mess, the album is actually good and you guys prefer to ridicule her like some twitter posts are the holy grail of entertainment journalism. FOH

  4. Tom tom October 15, 2019

    In her defense the children today dont know her. Also, kim needs to find her own sound and not sound like everyone else. The album isn’t bad but she needs beats from swiss, darkchild, timbo etc and not these producers now that only knows bass. Oh and a real record label would help her alot.

  5. King of Kingz October 15, 2019

    She done had Cardi’s name in her mouth the past 2 years & especially during her promo for the album, 🥴talking bout she was passing her the torch, yet Cardi ain’t promote her lil album @ all since it’s dropped 😂

    • Rico October 15, 2019

      Not one tweet, insta story nothing .. it’s sad

    • YAS BIH October 16, 2019

      She actually just did tho her and Remy

    • Gworl Bye October 16, 2019

      Just goes to show how petty immature and downright stupid Kim is and always has been.

  6. Jackx October 15, 2019

    This album has been on repeat since it dropped. Idc what anyone says it’s far better than anything Mcfraud been putting out. Lil Kim actually raps and goes hard.

    No Son/Potty/Barbie garbage raps 💁‍♂️

    • The Real Jasmine’s Grape 🍇 Juice 🥤 October 15, 2019

      Girl Please , not even Satan believes those lies 😂 Kim is 🗑 Trash

      • Interac October 15, 2019

        Auto blanco goes harder than anything Nicki or Cardi put out in the last three years.

      • Gworl Bye October 16, 2019

        LMAO for real, even Satan is like, stop lying Sway lmfao.

  7. Bryant Anomaly October 15, 2019

    Regardless if she has good numbers or not…she is still the ICON and the best to ever do it, if it wasn’t for her y’all favs wouldn’t be here, at least put some respect on her name,
    After 20 plus years in the game her first album Hardcore is still charting on the charts…name another artist that’s first second and third albums are still charting

    • Dc October 15, 2019

      Hardcore is not still charting your delusional

      • Kai October 15, 2019

        But it is tho go have a look

    • The Real Jasmine’s Grape 🍇 Juice 🥤 October 15, 2019

      Nicki Minaj looks up to Lauryn Hill not Jigsaw Face

  8. #TheTruth October 15, 2019

    One of the most impactful artists of our time ?
    Out of the US, and no shade, she’s not that famous. Unless you’re into Hip Hop, the mainstream worldwide audience doesn’t really know her…

    • Interac October 16, 2019

      They know her through the fashion world.

  9. Dc October 15, 2019

    You get what u put in 9 songs half auto tune glad it flopped you gone 9 years and come up with this half ass crap next

  10. tyty October 15, 2019

    She doesn’t appeal to the young ones… and she definitely not making music for her generation so it’s pretty much a given she would flop unfortunately. Rap for women is not lucrative long term.

  11. Bravo!! October 15, 2019

    I’m sorry too say but Lil Kim Album is forgettable!

  12. YAS BIH October 15, 2019

    And at the end of the day that still won’t change the fact that she’s an ICON, LEGEND, QUEEN, and the Mother Of Rap those titles that was GIVEN to her will stick now later and even after death now lets see what happens when Foxy drops her unwanted album that she’s working on.

    • #TheTruth October 15, 2019

      The word icon and legend is being thrown around very easily these days.

      • YAS BIH October 15, 2019

        I agree especially when it comes to Nicki Minaj 🤷🏽

      • Gworl Bye October 16, 2019

        Even more so when it comes to Kim.

      • YAS BIH October 16, 2019

        Your a Nicki fan so of coarse that’s your Opinion but not facts Real Hip hop heads know who’s Legend or Icon status and who’s not, No matter chart sales or whatever Kim did it all already and don’t have anything else to prove her mark has been made the original will always win and come first.

  13. Maxx October 15, 2019

    What a disgusting comment Antonia Sarpong (@antonia_nicki) October 14, 2019 made. I bet she wouldn’t call Lil Kim a b**** to her face….and this is what we have to look forward to in the justice system? No wonder it sucks…ugh.

  14. John October 15, 2019

    Kim is independent. The fact is independents do not chart like majors do. She is a boss and does not work for a boss. She is right to do it independent. What she would have to give up to sign with a major (not owning masters, having to give percentage of publishing, tours, appearances, tv shows, endorsements) is NOT worth it. She has already done the major label thing, charted at the top, gone multi platinum. Chart numbers are also not everything, a lot of that music is crap anyways. She has a loyal fan base, and is making more money this way. And we are still all talking about her and her music. Plus, the real artists recognize what she has done and continues to do. And there is no denying that, as much as people will try. I like how she bridges hip hop of the past with today. Lil Kim is queen, and was crowned by both biggie and the streets.

    She released it indie tho so that’s a feat in itself after so many behind the scenes delays…it’s a pretty decent album for what it is.

    TBH, I did not like the album as a whole on the first listen. I liked Found You and Bags. Then today, I was listening to a YouTube 90s mix that showcased Snoop, Big, Usher, SWV, Diddy, etc. After the mix completed, Pray for Me by Lil Kim played next. I immediately thought to myself that it was the original song that Lil Kim sampled. I really liked it. It flowed very well after the 90s mix. Then I realized that it was Lil Kim’s new song Pray for Me. I couldn’t believe how differently it sounded from my first listen. Maybe the problem I found with the entire album was that it did not have a cohesive sound. But, listening to individual singles work for me.

      I love the old Lil Kim better (as far as, lyricism, style, stage presence, beats, etc) goes. I don’t mind people evolving and have a different and fresh sound and so forth. However, if you are going to transform…make sure it is YOUR very BEST and yet, still keep the originality/authenticy of who you are as a person and rapper…period! 😚 I did not stream the album because, I simply did not like any of the songs or vibes. Now if it was unique but classic Lil Kim with the album production, lyrics, artwork, etc., being BEYOND 🔥🔥 🔥🔥 🔥 then of course I would definitely INVEST…BIG TIME!💖😏

      #This album is a legit NO for me!😫😟😰

    I think people have lost it when you start wishing bad on other independent artists. XD She’s doing her thing, as she always has. Many artists DREAM of being where she is in her career. Insulting a stranger who is successful is ratchet redefined and classless, but ah well.

    Why do you care about the sales? Y’all better care about the QUALITY silly h***.

    • Gworl Bye October 16, 2019

      The quality is worse than the sales tho.

      • Beat it [email protected]#ch October 17, 2019

        Gworl Bye You said “Kim came out of her knifed up scary face first way back when Nicki first blew up”….And where did you hear that information from huh d#ck rider. Let guess, nicki minaj right 😂 !!! So you really think this nicki minaj hate train came from no wear. Minaj has been trouble maker since the beginning of her career, and no, I’m not talking about the PF era, I’m talking the mixtape days. The proof is out there, time and time again she proves You barbz don’t have a brain of ya’ll own.

        But since your not smart enough to look for this info yourself, I’m bring it to you. You’ve met you match today, I’ll dissect nicki like frog

        Up next, I’ll have receipts for “ghostwriters too”

  22. i ain’t even LYING bOO October 16, 2019

    Kims album is cute tho. Ya’ll really need to stop hatin

    Queen B has been nothing but a Ride or die chick for us, let’s Ride for her and get these numbers up. She deserves it.
