Lil’ Kim Announces ‘Hard Core’ Mixtape

Lil’ Kim is going back to her roots. The hip-hop icon has announced her new mixtape Hard Core: Back 2 Da Streetz, which borrows its title from her 1996 debut Hard Core. She recreates the artwork from the landmark album, but instead of her lying in front of the fireplace, it’s a white tiger, stacks of cash, and bottles of Ciroc.

She posted the cover on Twitter, writing, “#HARDCOREMIXTAPE BACK 2 DA STREETZ #TeamLilKim I love all my fans!!!!! ❤❤❤”

Earlier this month, Kim released her new single “Looks Like Money” as well as a sneak peek of the video.
