Desperate much, Lil Kim?

If it wasn’t already clear that Lil Kim is desperate for money, and that’s the main reason she’s trying to beef with Nicki Minaj, it should be now that she’s trying to charge money for some mixtape that I’d never, ever listen to for free. Unless she agreed to give me a blowski.

That might be a value-added proposition she should look into, if she really is that hard up for money. Imagine, if you could pay a certain amount of money, and in addition to the new, godawful Lil Kim mixtape, she’d also go down on you. She could charge way more than the $9.99 she’s charging for this mixtape, and it would still be worth it, not necessarily because it would be such a good blowski, though I’m sure it would be (technique comes from experience), but for the novelty of receiving a knob shine from one of the top female rappers of the 1990s, the same chick who once blew Biggie Smalls. It’s the next logical step in a career that began with her pasting huge pictures of her crotch all over the city, and then escalated to bragging about her ability to deep throat a Sprite can. (Don’t let me find out that was paid product placement.) And it’s becoming a popular move for artists these down to offer a little something extra with the price of a digital download, which in itself is kinda worthless. Trent Reznor, for example, made enough money selling random throwaways from the past few Nine Inch Nails albums, in a big, fancy box, that he just said fuck it, he can afford to not go on tour anymore. From now on, he’ll just focus on providing the scores to David Fincher movies, which are probably made up from those same throwaways. Radiohead is about to make a mint from the deluxe packaging of its new album, King of Limbs, or whatever it’s called. (Do they realize that looks so much like Kings of Leon?) i started to read the list of shit it comes with, over at P-fork, but it was way too long, and it’s not like I’m about to shell out for it anyway. I couldn’t anyway, if I wanted to (via poverty). I just hope there’s that option of paying whatever you want for the mp3s, like with In Rainbows, so I can get it for free.

But I digress.

I’ll admit, I haven’t read up on this Lil Kim mixtape. I tried to read up on it in this site’s news section, but they didn’t have anything on it. Or maybe they did, and it just got buried beneath shit that looks suspiciously like free promo. I only heard about it a few hours ago on Black People Twitter. And then I saw where someone tried to click on a link to download it, I’m sure just out of morbid curiosity, and apparently it takes you straight to a PayPal account, probably an account linked to Lil Kim’s own personal email address. I can’t imagine a major label would actually assist an artist in setting up a PayPal account to charge $10 for a mixtape talking shit about the current most popular artist in the country. Maybe the late, great Sickamore would have come up with some shit like that back when he was at Atlantic, but he hasn’t been there in years. I was reminded of him just now when I saw that that Saigon album is now something you can pay to download, if that’s what you’re into. I wonder if he’s still listed as a producer or whatever on the back cover. Or did they not bother pressing up any actual CDs? It would almost be worth copping this Lil Kim mixtape on CD, if only for the ridonkulous Nicki Minaj snuff artwork, similar to how I still have a copy of Ill Na Na somewhere in my basement, that I might have to dig up one of these days for old time’s sake (via Freddie Jackson), but you can get the album cover for free, via Google image search. Similarly, I wonder if Lil Kim has taken any measures towards preventing someone from getting a digital copy of this mixtape and uploading it to one of these filesharing sites for the world to steal, OnSmash-style. Is there even a way to prevent that? If there was, I’m sure BangBros would have implemented it a long time ago. Lord knows they’ve lost a lot of money over the years, just from myself. And at least they’ve got a worthwhile product. Lil Kim might not make very much money at all on this mixtape. She might want to seriously consider that mouth hug package I half-jokingly mentioned above.

    I don’t think Lil Kim is worried about coming off desperate in 2011.


  • Don mcCaine

    …if Kim wanna flip units she should put out that BF video…if not one of her purse holders needs to know about hulkshare…

    that Saigon album is sounding nice too…

    • Q461

      That Saigon record is gonna be dope yo…all those Just Blaze beats…

      I don’t think Kim expects to sell alot of copies of this mixtape. Shes just tryin to re-establish a buzz. Minaj aint gonna even bother replying to another diss record from her either.

      • Don mcCaine

        “That Saigon record is gonna be dope yo…all those Just Blaze beats…”

        ^ fixed

        2nd spin rite now…

        • Q461

          Oh shit, did it drop today? I’ve been so busy I forgot….I gotta go and cop that…

          • Don mcCaine

            up that dime, it’s worth it…Atlantic fUxed up yet again, although it could be argued that 50 took Sai’s wind (Sai was next up). but the label should have let this go…

            next is that Random Axe project, Black Milk said it’s ready. Anyone heard about Madvillainy 2 yet?

          • Q461

            Weird, I couldn’t reply to your shit so I’m addin here..

            Listenin to Sai now..gonna cop tomm after work…this is hot… that first joint with Q-Tip and Scoop is fire….Surprised he left off that It’s Cold joint, that was flames too… It’s nuts to think this was supposed to be out like 5 years ago….Somewhere Papoose is sulking in a corner wondering when he’s gonna drop.

            Havent heard any release dates for Black Milk or MadVillainy2 just yet… but March 8th is going to be big…. Raekwon, Lupe and I believe that KRS-ONE/Showbiz album drop that day….

  • PurpleKushY

    What up Bol,

    another classic!

    good looks on the Radiohead shouts, I hope their album is free on Saturday too. and I wonder if they named it King Of Limbs so people would forget about the terrible band that has become of King of Leon…

  • caino

    Wot up Q, Don

    Man l must admit l was gonna sleep on Sai, l was just so annoyed that the joint should of dropped 4, 5yrs ago! so l was really unsure how it was gonna sound(l’m getting lazy in my old age), but l’m gonna give it a listen!

    On Kim : she aint daft , she know even if the mixtape doesnt sell, people will talk about it, and in essence her!

    • Q461

      What up my dude… it’s a hot album, sounds slightly dated but Sai and Just Beezy bring that tuffness. it’s been a long time coming for the homey Saigon. Def worth it yo pick it up.

  • Tusha P

    Srsly Bol, you know you’re gonna get that Radiohead album for free regardless of the pricing.

  • kenny


  • Jimmy Johns

    Kim comes off as so desperate. Who would really believe that she sold 100,000 mixtapes at 10.00 a piece? Yeah right.

  • chamilinavy mayne

    bol should look into becomin lil kim manager.

  • Royale

    Really? LMBO… Sad. Lil Kim WAS “what’s up” a long time ago. Things change and so does the times. It’s like playing catch’ up, but running in SLOW MO’. I say if it’s meant to be it will be… and if her return is meant, we shall see!! #TrueFansShouldStandUP
