Brooklyn rap veteran Lil Kim made sure to prove fans she was not blowing smoke after announcing an in-studio hook-up with hip-hop star 50 Cent and boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, Jr. by releasing a photo from the occasion.
In the photo, the Queen Bee is pictured alongside 50 and Mayweather’s Money Team.
Lil’ Kim was the only female in the crew while kicking it with 50 Cent and the Money Team. The fellas, including boxing champ Floyd Mayweather, Jr., enjoyed some down time over the Christmas vacation. Earlier in the week, the Queen Bee hit the studio with her “Magic Stick” collaborator to record some new material. It’s unknown where their latest work will end up, but Kim is expected to drop her EP any day now and announce a new record deal at the top of the year. Over the summer, Kim declared her loyalty to 50 and G-Unit while sharing the stage with G-Unit South signee Shawty Lo at Hot 107.9’s Birthday Bash 16 in Atlanta. (Rap-Up)
A few days ago, Kim revealed hooking up with Fif for a studio session.
“In da studio with my boys @50cent @floydmayweather @clsdash and @thaboyparis lego!!!,” she tweeted December 27th. (Lil Kim’s Twitter)
Over the summer, 50 cleared up confusion suggesting the Queen may have inked a G-Unit deal.
“She’s not actually signed to G-Unit,” 50 explained in an interview. “We didn’t even have discussions about that. I heard it, I heard people say it too. It was just like, there was no reason to give confirmation for something that didn’t actually happen at all. Like, when people say Shawty Lo is signed to G-Unit, they think that he’s actually signed an artist deal directly to G-Unit when the project that we’re doing is a lot bigger. It’s a joint venture.” (Headkrack)
In December 2010, the female emcee hinted at new music from her and the G-Unit head.
“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)
