As fans continue to wait out the release of Lil’ Kim‘s Hard Core 2K13 release, the Queen Bee has treated them to a visual treat in the form of her new “Looks Like Money” music video.
Three months after initially teasing fans, Kim has unleashed her new visual to the masses.
Back in July, Lil Kim teased her fans with the new joint “Looks Like Money.” Kimmy Blanco dropped the track, where she boasted about having a shoe game worth more than your whole wardrobe, on her 39th birthday. A snippet of the video soon followed, but now — three months later — the whole thing is finally here. Kim’s “Looks Like Money” video is a throwback to ’90s music videos. She rides around in a caravan of Bentleys, drinks champagne in the backset of a Maybach, hangs with Lil Mama and her protege Tiffany Foxx. The track is off Lil Kim’s mixtape Hard Core 2K13 now dropping on Black Friday, Nov. 29. It’s her first batch of new material since her 2011 Nicki Minaj hatin’ mixtape Black Friday. (VIBE)
A few days ago, Kim delivered a treat from her upcoming project.
Lil’ Kim returns to the music scene today (October 31) with the first taste of her Hard Core 2k13 EP and it’s seriously good. The first lady of rap embraces reggae on “Dead Gal Walking” — spitting rhymes about crime and city living over multi-layered, dancehall-tinged production. (Idolator)
Last month, the Queen Bee spoke on the song’s overall theme and motivation.
“It’s a very strong, serious record, but at the same time, feel-good,” Kim told MTV News on Wednesday (October 11). “There’s a lot of things that can turn you into a dead girl or a dead man walking and nobody wants to be that. So, I guess my message is ‘Don’t become a dead girl or dead man walking. Live your life right’.” (RapFix)
According to reports, the project’s setback is due to it still needing some fine-tuning.
Hard Core Halloween has been postponed. Lil’ Kim has pushed back the release of her mixtape until next month. The project is now scheduled to arrive on Nov. 29 aka Black Friday. Her manager Big Fendi announced the new date on Instagram. “#HARDCOREMIXTAPE 100% #HARDCOREAPP 80% DONE!!! I GOTTA PUSH MIXTAPE BACK TIL #BLACKFRIDAY #Nov29th #Nov29th,” he wrote. To make up for the delay, he will drop a new song tomorrow at 12 p.m. with a video to follow on Saturday at 3 p.m. (Rap-Up)
