(AllHipHop News) It's been 13 years since Lil Kim dropped her last studio album The Naked Truth. Fans of the Queen Bee should finally expect her next LP to arrive before the end of the year.
Yesterday was Kim's birthday, and she celebrated by letting loose the "Nasty One" single. The Brooklyn legend is said to be putting the finishing touches on another album with a release date planned for late 2018.
Kimberly Jones became a Hip Hop fixture after her debut, Hard Core, hit stores in 1996. She followed up that classic with 2000's The Notorious K.I.M. and 2003's La Bella Mafia.
2018 is on pace to be a big year for female rappers. Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy is already platinum. Plus, Cupcakke's Ephorize and Jean Grae's Everything’s Fine with Quelle Chris both earned critical acclaim.
More albums are on the way. Queen from Nicki Minaj is coming on August 10, and Remy Ma's 7 Winters and 6 Summers is slated for a 2018 release as well.
