Lil’ Kim Lights Up L.A. at ‘Return of the Queen’ Tour

Lil’ Kim’s “Return of the Queen” tour made its way to the Key Club in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. The Queen Bee stormed the stage shortly after midnight, performing hit after hit spanning from her debut Hard Core to her latest mixtape Black Friday, and bringing some special guests with her.

The crowd went wild when Da Brat joined her for “Not Tonight (Ladies Night Remix)” and her own single “What’chu Like,” while The Lady of Rage rocked with “Afro Puffs” and her remix to Snoop Dogg’s “I Wanna Rock.” Kurupt repped for the West Coast with “Xxplosive.”

After “Love & Hip Hop’s” Somaya Reece spit some bars, Kimmy Blanco brought out a blast from the past. Two-thirds of R&B/hip-hop trio City High, Ryan Toby and Robbie Pardlo, took it back with their 2001 hit “What Would You Do?”

Check out some highlights from the show in HD.

    hotkj2002 Reply:

    @MinajRules2012, Ohhh please… That album is a flop. You are delusional if you think otherwise. It just turned gold last week after all that time. Thats terrible especially considering she released like 8 singles and videos for this album. Who release that many singles and barely pushes gold? That album is garbage. Dicki career is in freefall and she only been in the game for 2 years. Atleast Kim was in the game 12 years strong before the decline of her career.

    You just HAVE to look up & come onto a Kim page JUST TO HATE !!!
    Kim is the ORIGINAL…A LEGEND…A HISTORICAL HIP HOP ICON…
    Is that what you ppl are mad at?
    That Nicki hasnt reached that plateau yet…or EVER will since she is POP & Kim is 100% Hip Hop…
    There’s no reason to be mad or disrespectful because WHETHER YOU CHOOSE TO BELIEVE IT OR NOT…Kim is the reason MANY females are rapping TODAY !!!
    She is ALSO the reason Hip Hop females are now SEXY…even Salt & Pepa & Missy were tomboys when Kim was the 1st SEXY BLACK BARBIE !!!
    Don’t disrespect that, because your only insulting YOURSELVES…just like that 2 Faced, FAKE, SELL OUT Nicki ( which i still admit, is very talented as well ).
    Real talk.

    You still didn’t tell me what’s Nicki excuse.

  16. CR00KS

    It’s different because Nicki has a team, an album out, singles, tour, music videos, and a lot of other stuff out. Kim on the other hand has no official single out, no album, no record label behind her, no big team to back her up, not much promotion, but that does not stop her from selling out shows, going on tour and doing her thing. Gettin’ keys to the city, buzzing like the Queen Bee she is, she is the true definition of a legend. 15+ and she is STILL in the game, people still keep her name alive good, or notoriously, but at the end of the day, Kim is STILL the Queen. She hasn’t stopped cus she won’t stop, cus she can’t stop. That people, is the definition of success wheather ya’ll like it or not. You can either hate or hail the Queen. “A Queen does not go down in history, We live on!” – Lil’ Kim

    So glad Queen Nicki can pave the way for this bitch to not only resurrect her old ass career, but her tired ass verses as well. :)
    You tour these urinal stall sized clubs with the same 12 songs every year baby girl.
    GET IT TOGETHER.
    The only bitches fucking with kim in 2012 is the one putting they dentures in a cup of water on their bedside.
    Nicki demolished this bitch career with ONE album. Ya’ll say Nicki pressed for Kim? Meanwhile Kim was all over Summerjam tweeting exclusives about Nicki set. Oh, and her tweeting about the Flex interview???? Bitch stay on Nicki like her wigs.

    Show me an artist who’ll be able to do half of the stuff she’s doing 10 years from now? NONE!

    Kim came from an era that made HIP-HOP. She came from an era where you had to be YOURSELF. not copy others.

    Lil Kim is doing what ALL LEGENDS DO, which is being able to tour on their catalog: Lauryn Hill, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Will Downing, the late Teena Marie, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, etc.

    You must be young and dumb if you think touring your catalog is nothing but a sign of success. Will you want to hear Pink Friday or Roman Reloaded 15 years from now? Will Nicki be able to tour her catalog? Let’s get serious about our comments.
