  • tru

  • Lil Kim looks like a fuckin plastic doll

  • Sexy_Sabe

    Thats whats up, areal female rapper is going to be doing shows again. All these pop artists we got using the title rapper to try an get money in both markets an earn some credibility. Real bitches wana hear a real street chick, kickin that good music we can relate too. Not rappin about dumb shit.

    haters can say what they want, but she twice as nice as nikki minaj.  .. whether she poppin or not right now is irrellevant, she still a legend in the game and a lot of old school rapppers are still touring and making money from shows, so its all good let her get hers…

    • Brick Soulja

      How is she twice as nice when she don’t write?? Nicki at least writes her own material.

      • Lil Kim has a writing credit on ALL her albums and ALL her tracks. Biggie been dead 15 years. Was he writing her shit from beyond the grave?

      • Weedras

        having a writing credit doesn’t mean you actually wrote the shit… some artist get credit for merely suggesting a few line changes… they never came up with the concept they just contributed a lil suttin..

  • Sosa_Limone

    i do wish female rappers like jean grey would get more shine though… jean grey is an ill MC but unfortunately she has jsut never popped… Lauryn Hill is still the best female artist of all time though IMO

    She performing at some small azz venues. If Nicki Minaj sold 250,000 in the first week, Lil Kim is sure to do at least 25,000…….lol.

  • Tony G.

    only if the tix were free would i waste the time…no disrespect

  • Why do people continue to compare her with Nicki? She is doing her own tour big or small, she is doing her thing…….Why must their only be one female rapper? Why can’t there be more than one? Do you’re thing Kim….I love the fact that she is a hustler

    • selfmadedude

      because she started a beef wif MINAJ…DUHHH.

  • Romia Blue

    I need her to hop on a tour with some current A-listers because this one is a fail. Pensacola?! That’s the ONLY souther city you have on this whole list besides Texas!? And she apparently has a hair salon or boutique in the Carolina’s. You wouldn’t do a little venue where you’ve set up your businesses?
