Lil Kim: Music Today… You Don’t Even Have To Be Talented, Just Come With Something Catchy And Hot!!!”

Lil Kim

Lil Kim’s first album dropped in 1997 and even though she hasn’t dropped an album in five years, she thinks she’s still relevant. In a recent interview, Kim explains why you don’t have to actually spit the hottest lyrics anymore and that’s why she’s more relevant than people who just got in the game…

“I’m constantly growing, my album came out in ’97 but I started doing music in the early ‘90s,” she said. “One reason that I’m still here and I’m still relevant to this day – probably even more relevant than a lot of new people who come into the industry – is because I know how to reinvent myself, I know how to change with the times.”

The 34-year-old discussed how the industry has changed since she first released music.

“I think that, no matter who you are these days; you could be young, you could be old, you could be new, you could be an artist that’s been in the industry for a minute, I think it’s all about a hot record these days, it’s different,” she claimed.

“I think that’s the only difference I could point out, you know, you could have a hot song back in the day but it may not break through. But now if you have a hot song – it doesn’t have to have a lot of thought behind it, it doesn’t have to be a deep record.

“You don’t even have to be very talented as long as you come up with something that’s catchy and, you know, something that is now.”

Lil Kim’s got a point, a lot of these artist lack talent… they just happen to hook up with the right songwriter, producer and management team.

Word on the street, Lil Kim maybe hooking up with the ever so no talented Rihanna… What Do You Think That Would Sound Like???

She wasn’t this extremely talented artist talkin lik she’s the madonna of rap music. She got in being biggie’s sideline hoe & wearing trashy clothes. She is no lauren hill or queen latifah 4 that matter, jus a old female rapper w/ played out gimmicks 2 garnish attention. Nicki will be playing ghetto clubs w/ kim in about 10 yrs. If u can’t keep up, u get left behind So get wit it or GET LOST KIM.

  • headbanger

    Lil Kim, I love u but shut up already and what on earth kind of single could you put out with “Big Red?” Please! Ho, sit down!!!

  • KIM STAN

    The article is a fake! Kim’s album came out in 1996. No way she would confuse the year her album came out. LOL

  • http://www.bossip.com dia

    well, its not like she lying. u dont have to be talented these days. just look at souja boy,t-pain, and all them other lil rappers making this dumb songs.smh. folks that have real talent cant get a break these days, but all these lil bubble gum acts scream crap over the mike and they an overnight success.

  • OMG

    Not so sure about relevant. Frankly, I think all the beef back and forth is only to keep each name out. All the rappers create beef! As for talent, there are quite a few one note headliners making paper. Literally one note is what they come on every song. eh eh eh

  • Joe

    Acutually ‘Hard Core’ dropped on November 12, 1996. The Junior M.A.F.I.A ablum ‘Conspiracy’ dropped August 29, 1995 and she [Lil’ Kim] first appeared on Biggie’s ‘Ready to Die’ album in late 1994 on the “Intro.”

  • MsGV

    @ Luv-Lee ..it was still disrespectful.
    Lil Kim is absolutely right. I also agree with Robert and Kingsley. Lil Kim is talking the talk and she needs to do something about it.
