Lil Kim is putting the final touches on her latest
album, titled Hollyhood.. She recently cut tracks with Timbaland, as
well as group/production team Full Force. While members of the group wouldn't
reveal the name of the song, group member Bowlegged Lou was confident that Lil
Kim's fans will like the song.
"I don't even want to say the title of
the joint or even give u an idea of what type of joint it is," Bowlegged
Lou told AllHipHop.com. "Just rest assure that once again Full Force will
surprise the musical masses and so will Kim. We personally recruited Lil Kim
to work with us the first time when we produced a cut off the new 3LW album
entitled "I Like That (I Want That). Kim came in and blazed that song.
We might be doing another joint with her as well for this album."
Despite criticism for being too raunchy, Kim
said she would not be changing her image anytime soon. "I don’t think
my image is dirty,” Kim said in a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister
magazine. “If it’s what helped me get here and if that’s what
the people love, then why would I want to clean it up? That makes no sense."
Despite her racy image, Lou said that Kim was
still a "prolific lyricist."
"Kim is such a versatile performer and so
multidimensional when it comes to hip hop," Lou continued. "She's
still a raw, gritty talent, still one of the hottest rappers on the earth. She's
so much more than a sexy persona, she's one of the most down to earth people
we ever met in this business."
She's been releasing just small teasers right
now to mix tapes and what not, but they're just appetizers."
Full Force was conspicuously absent from the
black music scene after releasing several albums and producing smash singles
by Lisa Lisa & The Cult Jam. The group went on to produce songs for The
Backstreet Boys, N*Sync and Brtiney Spears and are now returning to their hip-hop
