Brooklyn rapper Lil’ Kim has penciled in a release date for her highly anticipated Hard Core 2K13 release as fans await new music from the Queen Bee.
Kim released the project’s revamped cover art and announced a Halloween drop date Wednesday (September 11).
“I’ve got a BIG announcement for my #KillerBees!!! Coming at you @ 3pm!!! Stay Tuned!!!! http://say.ly/qJB6Ic6,” Kim tweeted September 11.
“Get ready!!!! 10/31/13 #HARDCOREMIXTAPE #Halloween #DontGetScaredNow #HardCoreMixtapeApp Exec producer @bigfendi RT!… http://say.ly/wIi6If2″ (Lil’ Kim’s Twitter)
Earlier this summer, Kim unveiled her upcoming Hard Core 2: Back 2 Da Streetz initial cover art.
Brooklyn native femcee, Lil’ Kim, has been popping up on our radar here and there while periodically dropping new material. Well today the Queen Bee returns to the interwebs with some dope news for her fans, and older hip hop head alike. She dropped the news off that she will be releasing a new project soon called Hard Core: Back 2 Da Streetz. Hard Core was the name of Kim’s 1996 debut album, which definitely had the streets on lock, and we’re hoping from much of the same from Hard Core: Back 2 Da Streetz. No word on when the mixtape will drop, but Kim did take to twitter to say “#HARDCOREMIXTAPE BACK 2 DA STREETZ #TeamLilKim I love all my fans!!!!! ???”. (Stupid Dope)
The Queen Bee made headlines for reportedly inviting a handful of fans to her London hotel a couple months ago.
The rapper has now addressed the controversy on Twitter.com and she even arranged to meet disappointed fans at her London hotel. In a message posted on the website, she writes, “(It) was a very long day. There were things that happened that were out of my control. I love my U.K. fans. I want to do a big meet n greet (sic)… Meet me at my hotel lobby.” Lil’ Kim subsequently published a picture of her meeting with fans, alongside the caption, “Meet and greet in London. I love u (sic) guys!!! I love London. I’ll be back soon!!!” (Contact Music)
According to reports, concert organizers blamed a no-show on Kim.
The musician was due to make her only live appearance in the UK this summer at the London music festival, but her set was scrapped ten minutes before she was due to go on stage. “Lil’ Kim did not turn up to her set on time,” the organisers explained in a statement. “The festival had no other option but to maintain the scheduled running order to ensure the other main stage acts were not disrupted.” (Digital Spy)
