Lil Kim Reveals Plans to Work With 50 Cent & Dr. Dre

One month after dropping her diss record to Nicki Minaj, “Black Friday,” Lil Kim is ready to reveal more details about her comeback.

In an interview with Funkmaster Flex last night on Hot 97, the Queen Bee revealed that she is working with Dr. Dre and 50 Cent.

“That’s my baby,” Kim said about Fif. “The stuff we working on together is crazy. And this time around it’s not just gonna be one song, it’s gonna be a whole movie behind it, so I’m excited about this project.”

While it is unclear where the Brooklyn rapstress and the G-Unit general’s tracks will appear, Kim shared that she will be working with Dre for her forthcoming album. —Elan Mancini

    Ok….. Time for some truth……

    First. When 50 was hot, arrogance dominated his artist selection. He moved like a mean-assed exec with his selection. Real venom like. If you slighted him in any way, he tried to slice you.

    Now granted, he did work with Kim earlier (no promo or video), but then he dissed her and laughed in the media about her face (most cats laughed in private). He did more with his prominent position to harm the chick than help her. Real shit.

    Now that his star is considerably duller, he wants to work with her.

    Not to be outdone by 50 himself, Kim’s star is as dull as a butter knife. She too is seeking to use some flint from his previous Multi-Milli sale days to get a spark.

    Problem is….. 50 is decent businessman. But he is a horrible artist when it pertains to protecting, nurturing, and working with others to grow his brand. Maybe the worst hip-hop artist in history outside of Puff.

    Kim is showing the world that she truly doesn’t have the basic intelligence to move in the industry any more. This move is dumb because she has chosen an artist in 50 that basically rendered himself impotent to working with others. Yeah, he works with Kanye and others NOW. But only after he can’t go platinum and Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine stopped picking up their phones. Real dumb move.

    To resurrect a career an artist has to do it with time and effort. Mixtapes, guest appearances, and plenty of political skill. You can’t just have a million artists on your album and think this re-energizes your career.

    Not only that but Kim has started beef with Nicki. Kim fails to see that starting a beef with a platinum artist is stupid because it’s not just Nicki she’s beefin’ with. She’s also beefin’ with Nicki’s million plus fans (that could also be potential NEW Kim fans). Another dumb move.

    Do us a favor Kim. Take Business 101 and develop a strategy. This new one is lame and will permanently end your career.

      It ended in the mid Noughts with Kim and other countless 90′s hip hop artist’s!!!!!!!!It’s the way the game goes some get left behind

        this comment shows a true lack of rap music knowledge.

        en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Naked_Truth_(Lil%27_Kim_album)

        ^ go do some homework…2005 release…she just did a song w/Luda this year…that ain’t left behind in the 90′s…

        • jonny bizness

          I don’t need 2 go and do no homework the mid NOUGHTS is when Albums sales started to dwindle and a plethora of 90′s artists started to fade the majors stopped messing with them and had 2 go the indy route 2 get their voice heard.Don quit the condesending shit u come across like your opinion is the only one that counts

    • chris

      I am surprised that you care so much.
      So analytical and precise. lol

  • jtm

    oh no dre is gonna get her on detox.

  • Johnny Tightlips

    I ain’t sayin nothin!

  • saywhat

    @sha. Ngga no one told your ass to write a book. I stop reading second paragraph when I realized you was talkn nonsense. So let me put it like this since I’m good about hip-hop.
    50 as of now is a hit or miss type of artist. He does good on features, other than these nobodies he been working wit lately he really ain’t been doing songs wit anyone well known so I think they can create some magic. If its a rap/hip-hop song yea, but if its rnb luvy duvy song than Naw cuz he suk at those

    • Sha

      @saywhat….

      You can say what you want (obviously you are a 50 fan) but facts are facts. 50 isn’t moving units like he did in the past. Sorry. Check the soundscan numbers.

      As far as writing a paragraph. Only a weak minded dude would bend and listen to the comments of another person and submit to their demands and dislikes. So on that note I choose to do what I want. Do what you want. No one told you to read it or even respond. If my small words dominate your life and annoy you, you need to grow up. In other words, fuck what you think!

      • Corleone

        Since when did numbers actually stand for an artist’s relevance in hip hop? In the words of Redman, “Men lie, women lie, and numbers also lie.”

    dammm blud wats with the fukkn novel niggaz gotta quit at that shit n pass the blunt

    Sha waddup?

    Nicki’s not a platinum artist (yet), Kim is, the resume is out there. have we forgotten that 50 has a film deal? Soundtracks make a lot of dough. I don’t see the problem with using her trials & tribulations w/music to enhance her career, that IS business saavy. The other day cats on here were saying she was irrelevant, Kim get back to the music, then when she says she is, it gets shunned immediately w/o even hearing a musical note or a voice.

    “To resurrect a career an artist has to do it with time and effort. Mixtapes, guest appearances, and plenty of political skill. You can’t just have a million artists on your album and think this re-energizes your career.”

    ^ none of this is accurate. The majority of these rappers’ mixtapes are just throwaway songs from studio time, some songs that can’t get sample clearance or collab approval. All you really need is ONE GOOD SONG (w/time & effort), not a mixtape. An 80 song mixtape did NOTHING for Freddie Gibbs. ‘Cocainism’ is one of the best mixtapes of the year, and I bet you 93% of XXL readers never even heard it. As for the million artist collabs, you seem to have overlooked that many “now” artists use this formula for their retail projects.

    And for the 1000th time, Ray J said something 1st, and before Ray J even opened his jibbz, bloggers (and commenters) were out there saying Nicki looks (not SOUNDS) like Kim, and there are photos out there that clearly show these similarities.

    All in all, good luck to all of them. And you too.

      What up $yk…..

      As far as the Nicki thing goes let me break something down to you…. When I say “A Platinum Artist” I’m not only talking about album sales. Like it or not, when an artist moves at least 500k they are PROBABLY a milli deep in fans. Why? Because those 500k fans are only U.S. Not only that but other things must be taken into consideration such as bootleg and illegal downloads. So yes, according to SHA’s standards, Nicki is a platinum artist. And yes, eventually she’ll reflect those numbers in a billboard platinum confirmation.

      As far as your other thoughts….

      ” none of this is accurate. The majority of these rappers’ mixtapes are just throwaway songs from studio time, some songs that can’t get sample clearance or collab approval.

      I understand what you are trying to say. But you are applying this to ALL artists. I specifically said

      “To resurrect a career an artist has to do it with time and effort.”

      “Resurrect” being the key word.

      To be honest, not too many artists can resurrect their careers. It hasn’t happened too much. Most artists are too dumb and lazy and those are the reasons their careers died in the first place. So let’s keep it on IRRELEVANT ARTISTS LOOKING TO RESURRECT THEIR CAREERS. Stay focused $yk!

      And as far as Nicki looking like Kim and such…..

      I’m not coming from a fan’s perspective. I don’t care for either of them. They both push pussy and ass to sell records. Not what I would call a “Real” MC.

      But cats who choose sides in this stupid beef come off as Stans and should seriously question their loyalties to hip-hop in general. Not saying you $yk, but some cats.

      Peace and respect. Happy Holidays!

    Not for nothin, as far as Dre goes, I’ll believe it when i see it. Dude says he’s going to work with alot of cats and it never comes to fruition…Although I think he can produce a banger for Kim..

    as for 50, I think dude took a step or so back after BISD flopped. He seems to not know what his next move will be, ie suddenly wanting to collabo with Ye, Jada, etc.. Starting a spinoff label with a different style ( G-note whose first act is going to be Hot Rod,) A followup album that was going to be euro-dance type stuff called Black Magic ( which i think he may have scapped?) And now reaching out to Kim or vice versa. I think 50 is a boss in the game so I wouldn’t count him out just yet……

    FIRST I WANT EVERYBODY WHO WAS BORN BETWEEN 1990 AND 1997 TO STOP TALKING ABOUT LIL KIM. YALL WAS IN PAMPERS WHEN SHE REVOLUTIONIZED FEMALE RAP. SECOND CUT THE COMPARISONS WITHOUT KIM THERE WOULD BE NO NICKI. ALSO LIL KIM HAS THREE PLATINUM ALBUMS TWO OF WHICH ARE MULTIPLATINUM. THE ONLY ONE THAT DIDN’T GO PLATINUM WAS THE ONE THAT WAS RELEASED WHILE KIM WAS IN PRISON AND UNABLE TO PROMOTE, WHICH BY THE WAY STILL SOLD MORE THAN 200,000 COPIES IN ITS FIRST WEEK OF RELEASE. SHE ALSO WAS THE STAR OF THE HIGHEST RATED TV SHOW IN BET HISTORY, AND CURRENTLY THE MOST POPULAR RAPPER ON TWITTER 2010. EVEN THOUGH THIS WAS NICKIS BANNER YEAR AND EVEN THOUGH NICKI HAS MORE THAN 1,000,000 TWITTER FOLLOWERS AND KIM HAS WHAT 80,000. AS KIM SAID “CUT THE COMPARISONS SHE IN THE LEGENDARY LANE” EVERY DUDE IN A YANKEE FITTED AIN’T JIGGA AND EVERY CHICK IN A BLUE WIG AINT KIM. SHE COULD NEVER TOUCH KIM CHUCK IT UP DEUCES.

  • caino

    Didnt fiddy diss Kim after their last song together??

    anyho….if they come up with a banger it will be good for both Kim and Fiddy!

  • Calhoun

    Mane hole up! Kim need to go fill out some apps. cuz its trully over! The bitch never really been shit.

  • Domo G

  • tdubwilcocks

    Alright sha, just shut the fuck up your fuckin stupid, 50 had one bad album, before i self destruct sold 169’000 units first week, T.I. just sold 150’000 now tell me who is more relevent, nothing against t.i. because he represents the south and i love him but when 50 sells more after a month of the album being leaked then t.i. i wouldnt say that he has fell off in any way, plus do you really think that 50 gives shit all about what you think the niggaz net worth is 460mil now do you think he gives a fuck, he doesnt need music but in the end its still what brought him up to be relevent. 50 cares more then most people think because with his new black magic album he said it himself that he is taking the time to make sure it comes out perfect, a detox style approach. as for dre, c’mon dre will never die in hiphop, kim working with dre and 50 on a track would be straight dope if it was a club record and i could bet almost all my momey you would be the one driving around bangin it in your cheap ass car with your cheap ass speakers. Listen to 50′s latest shit .. its dope as fuck and that nigga aint fell off just yet

    Get Rich or Die Tryin 800’000+ first week
    The Massacre- 1’150’000+ first week
    Curtis-750’000+ first week
    Before I Self Destruct-160’000+ first week,
    with the way the industry is these days and the way that the album leaked almost a month ahead of time i wouldnt say that 50 has fell off after just one album . i think that his new album without leaks could easily sell 800’000 again. but shut the fuck up your pathetic dude nobody cares about your gay ass nicki minaj shit, Lil’ Kim ft. Dr.Dre and 50 Cent (Prod. Dr.Dre) now how nice does that sound? i bet that shit gon sell. I rest my case. Happy Holidays XXL

  • dell

    yo, it’s obvious that calhoun is not a fan of rap, if he was, that statement would not have came out of his mouth. lil kim has done more for rap then some of these niggas. look at her statistic, not only are they crushing, they doesn’t need any support.

  • http://www.myspace.com/slotchmusic ms_spittuh

    i am totally ready for another lil kim album!

  • zayzkidd

    Why would Dre work with either of these no-talent having pricks?

  • http://ww.youtube.com/greatrastar82 ImMe

    I agree wit Sha on some points. Hpwever, Kim needs some kind of comeback. I’m not saying she actually left the game, but she hasn’t been droppin too many tracks. Th Black Firday track has some ill words, but the beat wasa horrible. Kim should’ve used a new beat or better instrumental. Lil Nikki is the only female out right now so the game is stil lwide open. Its time for someone like Kim to come take the game back. Lil Nikki fans were like 5 or 6 yrs. old when Kim first came out. Kim needs to reinvent herself and drop some hot s***. Enough said,.

    Kim working wit 50 is smart because he’s a businessman and knows how to promote. The questions is which lable is gonna be distrubitng Kim’s album. She better try to link up wit Interscope somehow because E1 (the old Koch) isn’t going to move many units. Kim working wit Dre is smart too because he’s a legend and I’m sure he’ll give her some hot beats. Kim needs to stop doin interviews, get in the lab, and drop some hot s***. I like Kim, I DON’T LIKE NIKKI BECAUSE SHE’S A STAIGHT UP GIMMICK. SHE doesn’t seem like herself. SHE’S TOOK A LIL BIT OF EVERYONE’S STYLE (Missy, Kim, Mc Lyte, and so on.) , BUT I DON’T SEE or NOTICE WHAT SHE CREATED HERSELF????NIKKI BE URSELF.
