Exclusive Q&A: Lil’ Kim Talks New Album, Dr. Dre, Rihanna, & Lady Gaga

Lil' Kim

While her feud with Nicki Minaj may be making all the headlines, Lil’ Kim had plenty of other things to say when we caught up with her. In part two of her no-holds-barred interview with Rap-Up.com, the petite raptress moves past the spat and shares the direction of her fifth studio album and collaboration with the iconic Dr. Dre for her project and Detox. The free agent also explains why her deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation didn’t go through and provides insight into her upcoming book The Price of Loyalty. Plus, find out why Rihanna is her favorite pop artist right now, what she thinks of fellow provocateur Lady Gaga, and which two buzzed-about rappers are on her radar. Bumble with the Bee below.

Now that your mixtape Black Friday is out, when are we going to get the next studio album?
I’m always working. You’re gonna always hear music from me. I can honestly say I’m so proud of the body of work that I’ve been producing. It’s a new sound for me, something that I think my fans are gonna love and I’m excited about the new direction. I’m basically always working. You’re gonna always hear music from me, but you’re gonna have that coming right after [the mixtape]. We got some surprises and some treats.

Do you have an album title yet?
I have a few, but I really don’t want to mention them now.

Is it going to be more like the Hard Core days or will we see the pop side of Kim?
You’re gonna get a mixture. There’s no way to just go straight Hard Core. I’m not one of those artists that say, “OK, I’m in a Hard Core mood, so everything’s gonna be Hard Core.” I’m not one of those artists. I don’t live my life like that. I don’t wake up every day and feel that same feeling. I live by the nature really. There are artists who will take a certain concept and go with that concept through the whole album; I’m not like that. I’m an artist who likes for everything to be universal.

Which producers are you working with?
Well, just so you know, I’m on Dr. Dre’s Detox album and I can’t wait, wait, wait, wait for that. The song is freakin’ phenomenal. It’s definitely something that my Hard Core fans are going to love, love, love, love, love. In return he’s doing a song for me on my album. I got Timbaland. I’m not the type of person where every name has to be a big name. I just have a really wonderful relationship with Timbaland and a wonderful relationship with Dr. Dre, so I’m lucky to have them as in-house producers. I also have up-and-coming producers, who people are going to get to know through my music. They’re not even out there like that.

There were reports that you were signing with Roc Nation…
I did get offers from representatives from Roc Nation and I did get phone calls from representatives from Roc Nation. A couple representatives from Def Jam had also reached out to me. I think they’re both amazing companies and I think it would’ve been brilliant for me and Jay to collaborate and team up together. However it just didn’t pan out like that. Not to say that something with me and Jay can’t happen in the future, but I doubt if Jay-Z or Roc Nation will be a part of my upcoming album. He and I are really good friends. We both were excited about the idea of us collaborating and maybe me signing with Roc Nation. I think Jay-Z is letting me be Kim at this moment. I think he feels that I deserve to be Kim and also to have everything that… It’s hard for record companies to sign females these days and give them exactly what they want and need. I understand that. It’s a different world out there.

Have you signed a new record deal or are you in the process of doing that?
I have a lot of situations on the table and I have a lot of situations in effect. For the most part, I’m very independent right now. All the situations that I have on the table, whatever the situation is, it’s going to be a partnership.

You previously mentioned a potential collaboration with Rihanna. Did anything happen?
Well, I mentioned I would love to collaborate with her. She’s my favorite pop artist right now. I think she’s just phenomenal. I feel like collaborations with people happen naturally. But I do have three people on my radar that I wanna work with so bad, but I’m not gonna tell you who they are. You know why I’m not gonna tell you? Because there were two people that I wanted to work with that [Nicki Minaj] ended up working with and I feel like it’ll just jinx it when you say it out loud. People hear you and they wanna do the same thing you do. I know that this collaboration is gonna happen. I feel it. I see it happening.

As a hip-hop veteran, who are you feeling these days?
I almost listen to everyone’s music. I’m really loving Wiz Khalifa. I like him a lot. I think he’s a dope artist. And also another up-and-coming artist, his name is Big Sean. I think he’s hot. There’s a lot of pop artists I love. I love rock ‘n’ roll music. I love all types of music. Usher, I’m loving him again. Not to say I stopped loving him, but at one point I didn’t understand the direction his music was going in, but I am in love with everything he’s doing now.

What do you think of Lady Gaga’s new single “Born This Way”?
I love Lady Gaga. Anything she does, I love. Even if it’s not my favorite Lady Gaga record—she’s just phenomenal. She is so cute.

Some people have compared her to you, saying she’s taken a page from your book at times.
I see that. I can see some of my influences too, but you know what I love about it? She just made it her own. She went in a direction that is her own. I would never try to go in that direction. She went in a direction where I love to watch her.

Maybe one day we’ll see a Kim and Gaga collaboration?
[Laughs] She’s wonderful. She’s definitely wonderful.

Any other projects coming out that you’re excited about?
Well, I have a book deal that’s been in the works for a long time. We’re finally starting the process of getting it out. It won’t come out around the same time as my album, but a little bit after my album comes out. I’m excited about that book. The name of the book is The Price of Loyalty. I have a book deal with St. Martin’s Press and I cannot wait for this book to come out because it’s solely about my stay in prison and a lot of the wonderful, beautiful girls that I met in prison. It’s some of their stories mixed with my stories mixed with the whole prison situation, and even how it came to be for me. It’s gonna be an interesting book. I do have some other things that I’m excited about, some endorsement situations.

Anything you’d like to add?
I just want to thank all my fans for making Black Friday so successful. I love seeing my fans smile and cry tears of joy because everywhere I go they’re just freaking so supportive. I want to thank them right now and just let everybody know that they can find me on Twitter @LilKim.

    First of all Kim, these people don’t work for free Kim. You need a label and you need a team that knows what the fuck they doing. Youi need to fire whoever gave you the idea to sell your mixtape for $10, whoever told you to put it on paypal, and the person who told you to lie about the sales. Kim you been talking about an album for 6yrs now. I think Detox is more believable than your album comming out.

    @Hangitup, You don’t need a label to work with artist..Her album is doing very successful on paypal and she never lied about her sale’s. You’re obviously gullible and read ever non creditable tabloid and or blog you see. Nicki Minaj tried to sell her mixtape for 12 dollars before they gave it away for free because it wasn’t worth it, no one seen a problem in that. So I’m really not understanding your point’s here. I believe you’re just anther minaj fan, and hater’s should keep their mouth’s closed and their biased opinion’s to their self.

    [Reply]

    Hangitup Reply:

    @Emillio how the hell you know what her sales are doing. How are you going to compare a rookie to a vet. Its understandable for a rookie to sale their mixtape then a vet that is already established. Just because people don’t like what she is doing doesn’t make them a hater or a Nicki fan. You can’t prove she made those sales and she not confirming or denying she made those sales, she basically said her team is dealing with that, but she was so quickly ready to defend her free views on WSHH. So yeah I don’t trust her words because she is a liar, I need to see some receipts and if you can’t prove which I know you can’t that she sold that much, I suggest speak on what you know. Stanley

    @Hangitup, her album is selling well, if u listened to the interview she did in atl, they called PAY PAL and PAY PAL verified, the fraud protection is per sale and they confirmed kim can sell 113,000 units individualy and thats not something triggering them to halt as fraud. if ur a real fan and like me u tried on that monday to buy the album u would have known their system crashed cuz of the over flow of traffic due to the demand of her cd. u dumb ass people pick and choose what u want to believe when the truth is out there if u go look! at the end of the day kim has made more money they nikki in 1 day vs what nikkis minmum wage ass made all year last year! do u reall think nikki can charge what kim does, if u do ur a dumb fukk!!!!

    @Daquan she didnt say lady gaga was taking her style, she said she can see a influence but gaga is doing things her way. listen at the end of the day kim is gonna be queen you or #teamminaj cant change that.

    I like how this interview focused on Lil Kim the artist and not portray her as a jeleous villian like other interviewers have done I respect that Lil Kim is clearing her name and actually changing the opinions of critics. I respect how she’s handling these other celebs bashing her on twitter and holding her own against the double standard they set up of KimmyBlanco. 4 ever the Queen I love Lil’ Kim aka MamaBlanco

    @KingdomCum23, who are u , where is ur songs? ur riding for a freahman in the game(nikki) kim graduated years ago from being a new jack!!! KIM is the queen and the 13million views on her song on wshh is plain and clear, nikki never had that many hits and she is so hot-yeah right, her album is a flop, all the money universal and cm pumped into her and she only has shipped 900,000 thats a flop, she has no hit singles. her album went to number 1 off 40,000 un its as the record industry is in a very bad slump. when u can have a number 1 album off 40,000 units, the industry is in trouble. the records dont sel now days cuz the artist are garbage and people like me in my early 30′s know good music as i came from the generation of KIM, Jayz,Missy,Whitney, Mariah,Janet,Micheal,Jodeci, Mary J. ur generation is whats failing us cuz u pick wack ass singers like NIKKI and thats why shit is not selling no more!!!!!!

    Such a great and informative unbiased article revealing so much truth and facts about Lil Kim. As a fan of hip hop and music period it saddens me to see how individuals in the music industry can just turn their backs on you over a quick buck, makes you question who these artist really are behind the scenes.

    I LOVE YOU KIM and can’t wait to hear and see all that God has laid out for you, this is YOUR TIME!!!

    @suckmydickhoe, Lyrically? Nicki and lyrical do not even belong in the same sentence. Nicki’s lyrics suck and to say Kim isn’t fucking with her lyrically ought to earn you a slap in the face. Kim is way more lyrically than Nicki. Nicki isn’t fucking with Kim lyrically. Tell Nicki to stop making rhymes that resemble something a first grader would make up. And a true hiphop head? Let me laugh at this.

    i doubt lady gaga knows to much of anything about like kim to get “influenced” by her
    kim is a delusional bitch to think people really watch her to see what to wear and do
    hello bitch madonna and grace jones was rocking that shit before your hoe azz was created
    were you think diddy and biggie got the idea to put you in the shit you was wearing
    fck out of here

    If this generation isn’t full of hate! It is obvious that people are desensitized to how evil they really are. To “hate” someone for no reason is an emotion that I will never embrace. These are black people supporting one black person and openly destroying another. You have to be extremely strong to withstand such negative and demeaning comments from people who know nothing about your true character. I wish Kim all the luck. The few interviews that I did read or listen to, I do feel where Kim is coming from. When you have such a large group of people supporting the new kid on the block and openly ripping you apart and you’re not understanding why, is a hard position to be in. To not support someone is one thing, but to call people “ho’s, bitches, has-beens, nobody, liar, fake, broke, etc.” without a reason strictly comes from a heart of evil.

    Kim I wish you nothing but success. Remember, most of thes people are young and live in a generation that spread more hate than love, God will never allow these people to rise.

    @lilkimqbfirstrapbitch,

    actually lil Kim was not the first one to wear colored wigs. Every artist borrows from artist before them. If you go back to the 80′s you’d see artist and groups like Labelle and such wearing colored wigs and dressing differently. Lil Kim didn’t coin the term “Black Barbie.” (Nicki calls herself harujuki barbie) Barbie is a product of Matell (that might be spelled wrong) that existed before Lil Kim. She can’t put a claim on that and according to her, she doesn’t. Her fans do.

    these wack ass lil kim fans kill me! how tha fck ya’ll keep fixing ya’ll lips to say Nicki Minaj copied Kim , no one has copied that Muppet face looking bitch. she isn’t even worth copying! if Nicki Minaj never came in the game having the effect on everyone like she does Lil kim would keep sucking dick on her rented tour bus! someone up above said her networth was 130,000 but she selling mixtapes on paypal for $10 , she shouldn’t wasted all her money on getting sh.t done too her. i don’t wanna hear Nicki sold a mixtape too “Which Bitch Yu Know Made a Million off a Mixtape” <- – - Nicki Minaj! Lil Kim needs to give up because if she does drop a studio album that shit is going to flop juss like her saggy ass titties! Lil Kim alls to ashamed of herself! either way it go it's #TeamMinaj to do the death of me and Rihanna doesn't wanna work with her crusty ass either! Fly is doing too good for kim to jump in the picture with her song sounding like she has a whole cup of nut stashed in her throat! Fuck that bitch and OAN : #ItsPinkFridayHoe! Beleee Dhat.

    @Tha Fuck, Nicki Minaj fans, I swear, are dumber than a pile of bricks. Nicki did copy Kim, it has been proven time and time again. If Kim wasn’t worth copying, then why is Nicki doing so? And Nicki didn’t make a million off a mixtape.

    Wow. It’s so funny how Nicki STOPPED her in the dressing room and asked if they was cool. Kim smiled in her face and said “Yeah, mami, we cool, we cool. Take a pic wit’ me, I love you!” But then turn around and say all THIS? Seriously. She must be scared/intimidated or something because you don’t just smile up in somebody face and say “We cool” when we not. This look JUST like keys video diss with nicki minaj. She stupid and this shows how immature she is. She didn’t come on until Nicki started blowing up. This is retarted. She need help.

    I wish i knew how old you people who glorify nicholas minaj on a page about lil kim. Nicki is a con artist not a rapper, atleast kims shit is origional. Nicki swagga jacked tha f out of kim. reminds me of the movie “the roommate”. Kim is a go hard gangsta b**** and will always be on top! Nicki is a reason for white bitches to listen to what they think is rap. I know yo ass aint hood riding down the streets blazin “super bass” or “stupid hoe”. and tha reason you aint doin that is because you know yo ass is gonna get laughed at like shiit! but anyway Go Queen Bitch! do your thang and fuck the hating copy cat hoes!
