Brooklyn rap veteran Lil’ Kim is not slowing down her music-making these days and has released a new remix to music newcomer Rae Sremmurd‘s buzzing “No Flex Zone” anthem.
Kim kept her streak of remixes alive with the song’s unexpected Tuesday (August 26) online premiere.
They know better. Following her remixes to Beyoncé’s “Flawless” and Bobby Shmurda‘s “Hot Ni**a,” Lil’ Kim comes with a remix to Rae Sremmurd’s “No Flex Zone.” Over the Mike WiLL-Made It-produced anthem, Kimmy Blanco boasts about being a trendsetter and killing the competition. “I don’t set trip, I set trends / Pull up in a 2020 Benz,” she spits. Her long-awaited mixtape Hard Core 2K14 drops September 11 featuring the Nicki Minaj diss track “Identity Theft.” (Rap-Up)
Barring any changes, fans will finally get their hands on Kim’s upcoming Hard Core mixtape next month.
“#HardCoreMixtape Dropping #911 #Call911?? #HardCoreMixtape911 #TheWaitIsOva?? #Call911#ILuvMyFans???????? pic.twitter.com/ARECbhZwFc,” Kim tweeted August 8, revealing a September 11 release date. (Lil’ Kim’s Twitter)
A few weeks ago, Kim lashed out at Young Money’s Nicki Minaj on an unofficial remix to R&B diva Beyoncé’s “Flawless.”
On Monday night, she dropped a Lil’ Kim remix of “Flawless” that did nothing to hide the fact that it’s a shameless diss track. “Am I tripping or did this ho just say my name?” Lil’ Kim raps on the remix. “Queen of rap, f*ck outta here. Queen’s back, f*k outta here. Time to get this wack b*tch up out of here. Woke up like this? F*ck outta here.” (Bustle)
Last year, Nicki paid homage to regional artists like Lil’ Kim for inspiring her.
“My favorite [female rappers?] Foxy [Brown], [Lil’] Kim, Lauryn [Hill] and then Remy [Ma],” Nicki revealed in an interview. “Like, when Remy came out, I was very, very excited about her. But, with the Foxy, Kim and Remy, they were all from New York too so, and it’s no disrespect to any other female rappers but those are the ones that I felt like, ‘Oh, okay, yeah. I could get into that.’ They sounded like me when I spoke and you know, I just thought they made an impact. But, I always loved Missy [Elliott] because she was playful and I always said, Missy and Left Eye, they weren’t afraid to be goofy at times and I loved that as well.” (“Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg Show”)
