Lil Kim is in a place of gratitude.
October 11th brought with it the long-awaited release of the Rap pioneer’s comeback album ‘9’ – her first LP in fourteen years.
The set is notably her first offering as an independent artist and is billed as being a two-parter, with a follow-up due soon.
And while initial sales were scant (with the album missing the Billboard 200), Kim isn’t deterred.
See what we mean below…
Speaking in a Thank You message to her fans, she stressed “we’re just getting started” and that “there’s so much history to be made”:

You guys are doing EXCELLENT! 🙌🏾 Beehive don’t let the devil deter you from the greatness that is happening and the history that is being made. Ya’ll keep going because there’s so much history to be made and we’re just getting started. ❤️ We outside fr, the streets have spoken 🔥 #9️⃣
We commend her perseverance.
If indeed a part 2 is incoming, she’d be well-advised to capitalise on her veteran status (and older base) and release physicals (which are still popular in that sphere). A lengthy pre-order window wouldn’t go amiss either.
We’re rooting for her!
