Brooklyn rap veteran Lil’ Kim recently reflected on her music career and despite the constant hurdles she still finds herself jumping over, explained why regret is the last thing on her mind.
In Kim’s opinion, any wins or losses experienced in her two decade career have helped her get to where she is today.
“I’m pretty sure everybody in the industry — and in life, period — has things that they feel like they would do over, but I don’t really regret much in my life. There are certain things that I would do over — and certain things that I would do differently. [But] the things that I go through and the things that I’ve gone through have become a major part of who I am today.” (Rolling Out)
Despite addressing plastic surgery rumors and rap feud rumors over the years, Kim recently said she was no longer sweating the small stuff.
“I can’t really say because I don’t really care what people think no more. It’s hard. The one thing that made me so great before is I just did what the f*ck I do. I didn’t care how I did it. I did it for my fans at the same time, but I also did it for me. That’s what my fans love because I did me. I told them the story about me and my life. I made sexual music that was fun and just people loved to sing to. I don’t really care no more. It’s whatever now.” (XXL Mag)
She also dismissed the idea of feeling an urge to deserve more respect.
“I don’t give a f*ck. It’s whatever. At this point, it is what it is. The streets made me. They stay at me. There’s nothing that’s gonna take away from my legacy. I’m sorry. It is what it is. I’m dying this way. With the crown on my head, nobody can take nothing away from me. It is what it is. I am who I am. Bottom line.” (XXL Mag)
A few days prior, the Queen Bee released her new “I Am Kimmy Blanco” record.
Rapper Lil Kim was supposed to drop her new mixtape, ‘Hardcore 2K13,’ on Black Friday, but she missed the deadline. However, the Queen Bee released a new single via Twitter called ‘I Am Kimmy Blanco’ to hold fans over. Over an eerie track, Lil Kim raps tough rhymes about lyrically murking rappers (*cough* Nicki Minaj) and holding down the throne in the rap game. “It’s Kimmy Blanco / The female Keyser Sosa / Taking over the game / Hercules, conquer / That bitch know how I get down / They already prompted us / While you screamin’ Queen Bee / We aimin’, here’s your encore,” she spits. Kim declares her dominance again in the chorus, rapping, “I am Kimmy Blanco / The motherf–in’ head honcho / So you better have your poncho / I’m about to rain on you pronto.” (The Boom Box)
