Women's History: The Source Celebrates Lil Kim

Superstar Kimberly 'Lil' Kim' Jones stepped into the scene in 1994 as the Notorious B.I.G.'s protege and first lady of the Brooklyn-bred rap group Junior Mafia. The pint-sized rapper packed a big punch standing next to her mentor spitting daring, unforgettable rhymes that certified their debut album, Conspiracy, gold. Kim's ability to mesh porn-laced lyrics over gritty beats intrigued the hip hop world who obviously wanted more of the BK rapper. Her solo debut album, Hardcore, was quickly certified double platinum and pushed her over the top as a huge rap star.

Following her mentor B.I.G.'s untimely death in 1997, Lil Kim continued his legacy and quashed any rumors of her disappearing in the game. In 2000, she released The Notorious K.I.M. and La Bella Mafia which were both certified platinum making Kim, along with Missy Elliot, the only female rapper with at least 3 platinum albums. She took home a Grammy for her collaboration on Lady Marmalade and in 2003 she won the Source award for Female Artist of the year and Female Single of the Year for her hit "Jump Off." Although Kim credits B.I.G. in cultivating her craft and making her an international household name, it was Kim who took her career to the next level appearing in multiple television and films, winning countless awards and serving as the muse for several high fashion designers. Lil Kim constantly switched up her unique, yet risque fashion and hairstyles making Kim a worldwide trendsetter as the world watched to see what she would do next.

Kim continued to stay true to herself before serving jail time for lying to a grand jury. She still represented her borough on songs like "Lighters Up" and taped a reality show leading up to her journey to prison as a goodbye to her fans. Although Lil Kim was sentenced to a year, she returned home to welcome arms as the hip hop world embraced her ready for more music. She took a break to Dance with the Stars, and stayed visible releasing tracks for her hardcore fans. As Kim plans to release new music, its clear that her strength, tenacity and ability to start over will forever make her one of our Female Rap
Legends.

#TeamKIM all day erryday erryday erryday! its very annoying that these hating ass filthy pigs feel the need to come on kimmys site and "TRY" yes "TRY" to put her and her fans down, at the end of the day she created what your a fan of dumb ass slow bitch. Get yall facts straight Big Bird is a copy catting, swagga jacking twin, the slow bitch is trying to be kim so bad, she wants to be kim! Every song she disses kim...why? Because its the only way anyone will find her annoying ass relevant. Hahaha! BTW word has it around that she's copied kesha on her album cover and that the stupid hoe is not a rapper but more of a confused washed up pop singer. You'll always be numba #2! Lmfao!

laughing@teamminaj fans on a quote "lil kim" fansite, wow! are you that bitter? anyway go QB! smile
by Mickie @ 14 Mar 2012 08:40 am
@Alex

It's really disgusting when you know there are people that are so lonely and bored with their lives they spend their days lurking the Kim fansites. Eat, shit, sleep, lurk the Lil Kim fansites:

That's their daily routine. Pathetic and disgusting.
by elmo @ 14 Mar 2012 09:36 am
@Mickie @Alex I 100% Agree! wink

QUEEN BEE LIL KIM
by Fashion @ 14 Mar 2012 02:21 pm
lil kim loves her fans. she know that her fans make her the QUEEN that she is.. Its over for the rest of them everyone is talking about lil kim!
by bestcolor @ 14 Mar 2012 03:06 pm
The Source always holds QB down!
Keep doing your thing so we can quote thee! wink
by KingB101 @ 14 Mar 2012 03:07 pm
Regardless lil' Kim always has it her way with being respected at the end of the day. She is respected not only because she is a legendary icon, but because she has been in the game for years and has given the world a reason to respect her as The Queen that she will always be and forever remain. Lil' kim was the first rap chick to shake up the charts! Yet bitches wanna act like they are the leader of this "Million Bitch March". Theres is only one Lil' Kim after her there will be none. She created this "wannabe/poser/swaggajackin/confused/lil' kim clone clown/COPY', yet this washed up wannabe wants to keep dissing the person that paved the way for her. Big Bird is a unappreciative, selfish bitter piece of shit! make up your mind bitch, pop? or rap? you suck at both and you'll always be #2! lmfao!
