New York rapper Lil Kim has revealed her recent reunion with 50 Cent and said the two have plans to collaboration on an upcoming solo album.
According to Kim, her reuniting with 50 is much deeper than music.
"That's my baby man. Like, 50, I've always been a fan of his, but I'm a big fan all over again. He is 'bout to... he is getting ready... it's gonna be crazy, that's all I got to say. I'm loving his new stuff. The stuff we working on together is gonna be crazy... This time around it's not gonna be just one song. It's gonna be a whole movie behind it, so I'm excited about this project." (Hot 97)
Last September, photos of 50 and Kim in the studio landed online.
The "Magic Stick" team reunites, as 50 Cent lays down new songs, and tweets that he felt an attraction to Junior M.A.F.I.A.'s finest. The G-Unit Records head tweeted photographs of him in the studio with the likes of former label-mate Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beatz and a reunion with Lil' Kim. Kim and 50 had recorded 2003's hit single "Magic Stick," which appeared on the former Junior M.A.F.I.A. member's La Bella Mafia album. After disputes with the song, the two began to disagree, a dispute that reportedly halted video plans. The rapper soon tweeted that he felt attracted to the veteran rapper rumored to be signing with Roc Nation. (Hip Hop DX)
Outside of 50, Kim recently discussed wanting to do an R&B collaboration.
The Queen Bee released her own remix to Rihanna's "Hard," but reveals that another pairing could be in the works. "I'm a huge Rihanna fan, and she's a friend of mine, so if I had to guess, I'm 90 percent sure that song is probably in the works," she told Australian website Lifelounge. But Kim, who's currently playing intimate shows in the U.S. and abroad, doesn't want people to judge the song before it happens. "I look at it this way: if it happens, it happens. And it should be a surprise. It shouldn't be something that people are anticipating, or have their own personal opinions on it before it even comes out. So I probably won't ever mention that again...I just love Rihanna, I think she's great." (Rap-Up)
Earlier this year, Kim talked about her legacy in hip-hop and remaining relevant.
"I'm constantly growing, my album came out in '97 but I started doing music in the early '90s. 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. 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. 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."
