New track-WACK,dull as dishwater Benjamins-CLASSIC-but she only had a verse and Biggie carried it-and crush on you -I mean REALLY-SHE IS NOT, I REPEAT NOT KILLING, SLAYING ANYTHING. There are some real NOSTALGIA freaks on here!I hope she keeps FIXATING on Nicki-it’s just more pr for her and I guarantee she ain’t bothered about a single utterance that old woman cares to make. She’s still talkin’ about how men buy her shit -buy your own shit you ANCIENT HOE!

BETTER GET A HUGE LOAN FOR THE MULTIPLES YOU”RE GONNA HAVE TO BUY BEFORE SHE HAS A HIT. YOU MUST BE MENTALLY CHALLENGED IF YOU THINK SHE IS THE PINNACLE OF FEMALE HIP HOP! SHE started the beef so she deserves all thats coming to her. SHE should be put out of her misery-so she can get back to scaring small children and rifling her mens pockets. I cannot wait for the chart placing on her new effort. You fools are gonna be so BROKE trying to get her there.You don’t demand respect -if it ‘s given thats fine. Queen- QUEEN OF SU**ING D**K.

    I love Kim, but this performance wasnt good. the new song was flat out boring and she had to take it back to the old hits in order to get hype. if she would team up with nicki, they could dominate the music industry. I wish Kim would come with some La Bella Mafia or Hardcore and I wish nicki would stop all of that pop stuff. smh

    @AMAZONT.H.E.,

    did you not read all of what I said b4 writing that stupid reply? I said I love Kim so what the hell are you talking about??? The crowd was NOT going nuts for “if you love me.” the only reason they were hype was because she had JUST came onto the stage. by the end of that song the crowd was dead af. but, they did go crazy for “benjamins” and “crush on you.” 2 classic hits that slaughter her new stuff. you need to stop being mad and admit her new stuff sucks compared to her old material. “Hardcore” was one of the best hip hop albums of all time… If she took note of that and brought the ‘brooklyn’ back to her music, there’d be no discussion
